The hill is gone!

When you become a home owner, you take serious pride in all the little projects you FINALLY get done. Yes I realize this is a silly thing to blog about, but this hill made me angry every single day, and the like the tree that was growing out of it at one point, I wanted it gone! ( The tree was removed shortly after we moved in with the only thing 2 things I had- a dull ax and a hammer. Yes I removed a ginormous tree using the back of a hammer. It took several days and lots of hours, but I finally removed that ugly thing) So, this huge hill remained for many sad months, until the 4th of July. I don't know what got into me, but I went to town digging/leveling the darn thing. About 5 seconds into it, I thought, What in the world am I doing? I need to get ready for the BBQ, I shouldn't be worrying about this right now. But the horribly determined part of me won, and for the next several hours, I sweat my guts out, getting rid of all the dirt. Our wonderful friends gave us their left over sod even! I am SOO glad the tree and hill are gone forever!
