I cant wait to start!!!!

I cant wait for the season to start. But we still have about 3-4 months until its time to get out there and mow and landscape!!! However, in about feb. ill start the advertising and getting the customers from lastyear who havent signed up yet, signed up. But we still have about 6 or more plowable events to come this winter, so I mine as well just keep my eyes on the snow instead (have 20 snow accounts). I like the income of the mowing and landscaping, but I like the thrill of plowing and not knowing when your going to be working, espissally getting up at 3 am

Anyways, is anyone else excited to get out there and start mowing!

Meanwhile, Im thinking of new business ideas, looking at getting more equipment, building an office next week with tile, drop ceiling, walls, 6 electrical out lets, 2 cable outlets, and 2 phone outlets. Its 10x16, not giant, but big enough for what I want it for. Oh and im putting in a recessed area so I can put in a TV and then put the drywall around it to make it look like a flat pannel, so while im doing paper work I can watch tv. Also, im going to put an L shaped desk in, 2 or 3 filing cabnets, a few chairs, computer, phone, bunch of other stuff, and maybe a couch for those times when I feel I need a nap and to lazy to walk to my room. LOL. It will be so nice though finally having my own area, and someplace where I can go in it, lock the door, and not have ANYONE bother me. Oh thats heaven right there, when ever Im doing paperwork of anykind, people always bother me (brother, mom, dog, house phone).

Anyway, I needed to get that out, all this energy to get out and mow, so instead I build myself an office. LOL.

Who else is excited to get out and mow and landscape for 2005!???!

Happy NEWYEAR!

that looks like it. i'm getting from sports authority, delivered and installed for like $750. i hate to use anything but free weights, but my biggrst problem is, i'm too strong. i need to do shoulder presses with like 120-140 lbs, and getting it from the ground up to excersising position, is bad on the back. also, doing bench presses with alot of weight and no spotter, is just asking for trouble

Really? Dang you got ants in your pants.

I definitely CAN wait for the season to start.


There are a few other things, however, that I can't wait to start;

My next Pina Colada.

My next nap.

My next DVD movie

My next playtime with my kids

My next vacation

My next trip up to the mountain to play in the snow

The next new release to hit the movie theaters (I've already seen everything worth seeing that's out right now).

My next good book

etc.
