Ever just sit back and watch something get out of control?
I should shave my legs daily – if I am in the shower and graze my leg with body wash and suddenly I am unsure if I am touching my calf or a small porcupine, that’s a problem. I should cut my boy’s hair on a regular basis – it is not okay to acknowledge on a daily basis that they look like one of the lost boys on their way into school. I should fold the laundry I wash right away – not pull things out of the dryer to only sit in a basket for a few more days, to only be folded and sit on a dresser for a few more days, only to eventually be worn and never actually put away.
Adulting is hard. Even these measly tasks can seem overwhelming when our days are already packed to the brim. It becomes too easy to procrastinate.
My controlling personality always leaves me longing to put a check next to the projects I am purposefully pushing away.
Here in the Thome home we strive to make even the most dreadfully daunting tasks a little lighter.
How do we do that, Abby?
I am so glad you asked!
When it comes to our projects inside and out of our home, we make sure to always choose the right tools. Without the right tools you will find yourself going in circles trying to accomplish even the simplest of tasks. You all know by now our love affair with Ryobi Outdoor and when Dan and I decided to stop ignoring the sides of our property we knew exactly where to turn.
To the left of our property we have this very unattractive patch of weeds that we have let go over the past year. If you were looking straight onto our house you would see a well manicured lawn, landscaping and porch. If you were to look to the left or right you would wonder what the heck happened.
Dan and I both pictures hours upon hours of pulling weeds and whacking away at the tall grass. Who the heck would have thought that two affordable Ryobi tools would end up tackling the job in less than 45 minutes!?
The power behind this lawn mower is unbelievable. Don’t let its quiet sound fool you – this guy is a beast and rolled over the tall grass like a monster truck. The bits and pieces that were left straggling here and there were coasted over quickly with their string trimmer. Dan called me outside to check out the job in progress and I was completely floored to see that what I thought would take the hubby an entire Sunday to tackle, only took until a lunch break.
If you haven’t tried Ryobi’s Outdoor products, think about gifting them to your loved ones this holiday season. Not only are they environmentally friendly, they are user friendly too. Have a new homeowner in your life? Or a family member who you know is sick of filling up their outdoor tools with gas all summer long? These tools are battery powered, and that very same battery can be swapped back and forth as you use the tool of your choice. How cool is that?!
Never again will I let the side of our house grow out of control again. In fact, in the spring we plan to plant a few evergreens and turn a forgotten space into an area that we will want to look at on our daily walks!
