One of the big splurges we indulged in after buying this home was a nice lawn mower. Not the most expensive kind (like a riding one), but one that is really well built. We got a Honda with a great blade and motor, and some safety features. I was adamant about getting a push mower even though our lawn is big, because lawn mowing is some exercise I like!
I'm all about efficiency. Anything that combines exercise, frugality (something some people pay for someone else to do), sunshine (vitamin D), and something that needs done is good in my book. It's like super-hyper multi-tasking! Love it.
And...since I was the one who insisted on having a push mower and insisted I would mow the lawn, I have kept my word. I have mowed every week but one. I love the feeling of satisfaction it brings!
What chores do you enjoy?
