I got to thinking the other day, and I always hear, "oh, I don't want to work for the man, I want to be my own boss." I know in our situation though, it sometimes doesn't feel like it. It feels so much like a regular job. There's no waking up on a Thursday and saying, "let's skip work today and go canoeing." We just can't do that. 19 lawns are on the schedule every thursday, we just can't miss it. We are so routine oriented, it's crazy. We carry such a full load that there isn't any leeway for taking time off. Honest to God it's like waking up to a 9 to 5 job, we know every day it's the same thing week in week out. Sure, we can set our own prices, choose our own customers for the most part. But once again, we can only "play" boss to a certain extent, because we can't become too high and mighty when choosing customers, or else we won't eat. Anyone else out there that's carrying a full load without employees that sometimes feel like they are punching a time clock?
