A week ago, my husband took a vacation from work. It's unusual for him to take vacation days, unless we are going on a trip - but since we decided not to do Europe this summer, he had some extra days and thought it might be nice to work on landscaping the yard! (Thank goodness for handy husbands!).
When my husband and I have conversations about things like sprinkler systems, I think to myself, "Oh I get it! How hard can it be? You put the sprinklers together, lay the piping in the ground, and call it a day. Right?" Wrong. Inevitably, he'll say something about laying the sprinklers in "zones," and I'm suddenly reminded why I'm so thankful he's in charge and not me. Thank goodness I'm a good middle school teacher, because I'd be a horrible landscaper!
