I don't think this is normal!

As we head into Spring, I am seeing and hearing lots of commercials for lawn care services and products.

The TV commercials show people sitting on, laying on, and playing on their lawns (which of course are the perfect shade of green).

The thought of sitting or laying on a lawn gives me the heebie jeebies!!  All I can think about is the yucky feeling of the grass on my feet and legs (and arms if I were to, god forbid, lay down).  Then, I think about all the gross bugs that could be in there.  Then, I think about all the bird feet germs and poop mixed in there.  Then, I think of all the critters like rabbits, squirrels, and chipmunks that had their feet and hind ends on the grass (and they poop too!). 

I'd like to rip up my lawn, lay down a slab of concrete, and paint it green!

Normal?  I think not.  Do I care?  No!  Just keep that grass away from me.

It gets so hot here and we have fire ants that will eat you alive so, yes, I think it's normal to see those commercials and think they're insane.

Laura - If we had anything even remotly like fire ants, I'd move into a concrete village and never, ever leave the house!! UGH!
