Yard Work...Yuck!!!

I couldn't believe it when I looked out into the back yard and saw how tall some of the grass has gotten.  It's still March and it already looks like it is time to break out the lawn mower to take care of the yard.  Now if there is one thing that I can honestly say that I do not like doing it is mowing the yard.  I dislike it so much that I bought a riding lawnmower even though my yard isn't too terribly big just so that I could get it mowed faster than if I push mowed it.  When I do mow my goal is to mow it faster than the time that I mowed it before.  (I've timed myself and compared before)  I guess that's the racer in me.  If it were up to me and it wouldn't embarrass my wife (and if it wasn't so hot) I would probably suit up into my riding gear before I started to try and get the whole racing effect.  Hey, if I have to do something that I don't like I may as well try to make it somewhat interesting.  I'm also guilty of putting my race gas in the weed eater so that it smells like a dirt bike running while I'm trimming.  It's about the only thing that I have found that keeps me somewhat willing to do that part of the yard work.  The weather the past couple of weeks has been absolutely awesome, but I have to say that it's not so awesome that it's time to start doing yard work again.
