The other man in my life

We're having a thing or two done around the house lately, and this week's project was some landscaping improvements. This will be the third time we've called Terry in to dig in our yard for one reason or another, because this guy is the triple threat of landscapers!

1. Shows up on time.

2. Does amazing work.

3. Sticks to his (very reasonable) estimates.

Apparently, though, my infatuation with him is showing:

Me answering the phone: Hello?

Terry: Hi, Christine. Just wanted to let you know we'll be back today to finish the job.

Me: Okay, thanks! That sod you laid yesterday looks great, honey.

I wonder if there's a hole left in the yard big enough for me to crawl inside...

Oh no you didn't!! I caught myself almost saying "I love you" before hanging up the phone after talking to my boss. Not a freudian slip I assure you, just a habit from talking to the nephews/boyfriend. If I would have said it, I'd have quit my job.

I've heard about the Pool Boy thing but the Sod Layer thing? :)

I'm always afraid one of these days I'll sign a business e-mail "Love, Mom."

Well, is he cute or something?

Monica (I'll be laughing at that all day and being careful what I say...)

It's kind of like at school, sometimes a high school student will call me "Mom" and then get so embarrassed. Anyway, that is hilarious!

That's precious, I mean priceless.
And Happy Birthday. rw

Ha ha! I guess he feels appreciated!

Say, you don't live in the ATL area, do you, 'cause I could really use that honey.
