I am also looking for ways that i can explain to her i can keep good grades, still do golf (she wants me to real bad, but it will be tough to make the team anyway, so it may not even be a problem), and still sucessfully manage my accts. Thanks for any replies.
Basically, what i am asking, CAN i do 25 lawns a week between 3:45 to 7 monday through friday? Also have all day saturday and sundy to do lawn stuff, but prefer to keep those open if possible for extra jobs, catchup if rained out, and somewhat of a personal life.
Are you still able to work and have daylight till 7pm? Its been getting dark around here before 7 for the past 2-3 weeks. In the early spring and fall it was tough but do what you have to do. I was always trying to keep the weekends empty but if I had to work, I was ready willing and able to do so. Last year in my senior year of HS, I was managing about 30-35 lawns a week plus the additional customers for mulch and spring and fall clean-ups and stuff. It was tight and there were many days when I was not getting in till 9 o clock but I was able to get the work done.
What time are you getting out of school? 345 sounds a bit late to start. I got done school at 154 and I brought my trailer to school most days. At 215, I was at my first job and ready to go.
