Waking Up To The Sound of Lawnmowers
April 20, 2017 7:59am CST
Even though I probably should have been up already, the landscapers had their mowers going right at 8am on the dot. Can't complain cause 8am is the time when noise is acceptable here. However, I really wasn't ready to get up and it would have been nice to sleep a little longer. Having the grass mowed is worth the money I paid into my HOA fees (along with snow removal). With all the rain the grass is high but beautifully lush and green. The dogs were having a problem with the grass being so high so now they should be happy and can go out and sniff to their hearts content without having to wade through high grass. Now that I'm up, showered and dressed there's only one more thing to do.....HAVE COFFEE!!!!! Sending smiles to everyone and hoping it's a good day.

@marilynda1225 It poured rain, so no grass was cutting around here. But my grass cutter cut my grass a few fays ago and even surprised me and cleaned up my yard of leaves and other debris. I was so happy! Glad you had your grass cut and your yard looks beautiful!

I guess we have earlier times for noise to be acceptable there. Even though it's country I live in a community so I assume they have schedules to keep and then move on to the next customers. Since the grass was so high they were here for hours doing the whole complex.

I shower first because my bathroom is part of my master bedroom and my coffee is downstairs, If I didn't have to come downstairs I'd probably have my coffee first but just the thought of having to go back up to shower and dress is too much for my knees.

I don't like it when the neighbors mow their lawn early either, although I don't think he does it quite that early. When it really bothered me was after I'd worked the midnight shift and was trying to get some sleep before heading out to the second job. Course, my neighbor never knew all of that. I ended up using ear plugs a lot and only recently began trying to sleep without them a bit more. My husband can be a noisy sleeper so sometimes they are still necessary even though I'm not working the midnight shift since last summer and I'm not back to work yet after my surgery.
Our HOA finally fired the guys who did the public areas because they'd try to start as early as 6:30 in the morning. This went on for a year before they finally did something about it. The new company comes around 8:30-9 now. We have to maintain our own lawns though, which I think is kinda dumb for the insane amount we pay the HOA.
