As we age our energy lessens. No matter how we take care of ourselves. I have noticed this greatly in the last year. I workout, eat really well, sleep more than anyone I know and still can't seem to rake longer than an hour. What is up with that? And darn if I don't have a big yard.
Moving to a condo would take care of the dilemma, but I really like this house. So I need to find a way to hire it out. When there's a will there's a way. Take it from another budgeted item and pay someone. It will be worth it!
