needless to say the last few days have been difficult...just watching rob's sister and her family soak up all that has happened and realize now is the just the beginning of life without Luke.
we're thankful we live close enough that we could just load up the SUV and drive...and THANKFULLY we work with people who "get it"...that some things are just more important BUT, for us, mainly rob, his wheels hardly slowed down in that little brain of his. rob's "to do" list continued to grow while we were in atlanta - at the top of his list, the lawn.
the lawn is not a priority because we are up for yard of the year in our neighborhood association...or because we just had our landscaping done...ha. rob knew our jungle needed to be tamed. PLUS we JUST got an invisible fence and mowing would be quite an undertaking because he would have to take ALL of those little marking flags out of the grass and then replace them (must be about 75 of them AT LEAST).
yep, all 5 hours back in the car he knew he wasn't going to get back in time to jump start that lovely broken lawn mower....and then we pulled up to our house.
it was as if angels were lining the driveway....someone mowed our yard. someone moved ALL those stinking invisible fence flags and put them back (sorry, i bet they didn't count on that when they drove over with their good intentions...) SOMEONE didn't leave a note or message.
i'm assuming we'll find out who came to our rescue...but for now, know that when you have one of those crazy ideas of "gee, what could i do to help"...make sure you drive by their house first and see if they just got one of those invisible fences...then just send a nice card.
thank you lawn ranger.
