When garbage trucks unite.

I went to bed a 1am. Awoke at 7:30 am. Did I wake the Hunter or did he wake me? Don't know. All I do know is that God told me I need 9 and 1/2 hours of sleep a night. I realized it was the garbage trucks raucously rumbling down our streets that woke me. Don't get me wrong. I am thrilled that we no longer have to put our trash in plastic bags or cans that we have to drag down to the curb. When the company changed, we were given large, wonderful carts on wheels. Love them. But really? 7:30 am? The trucks will definitely burn in hell for this injustice. Well ok, at least they will melt. But their contents will burn. What's the big deal you ask? There are three different trucks that come by. Trash. Recycle. Yard waste. Then a while later they come back and do the other side of the street. And there are rogue trucks that just drive up and down for no particular reason at all!
Oddly enough, we didn't make it to Barnes and Noble today. But The Hunter is going out drin.....I mean, to lunch with his old drin....uh, work buddies and I will be sauntering over to retrieve MY books. It will be nice and cool outside and I can weed and plant and enjoy.
I did not go to the kid's ball games today but Meadow texted me that she got a home run! Go Meadow! I am excited about the cool weather coming. Rain along with it, but who cares? Did you ever notice that when you are outside with a man and it starts raining,...they start running and yell at you to run!? If I am hot, the rain feels like manna from Heaven. I relish it! "Run! It's raining! You'll get wet!!! Really? Ya think?

That's why I sleep with a sound machine, to block out the intermittent noise... except for the freight train, in the bed next to me. Nothing blocks that noise.

We have three trucks that come by as well, but luckily, for them, they don't come until about 10. I would totally freak!

We have garbage trucks on our street almost every day of the week, because every other house has a different trash company. I'm just glad our bedroom doesn't face the street, or we'd never get any sleep!

Except when it rains. ;)

Sound machine! What a great idea! I wonder if it would work for snoring. My hubby snores LOUDLY. Imagine those three garbage trucks roaring to life right next to you in bed and then you would almost have an idea of how disturbing MY sleep can be! And when he's not snoring, he's trying to grab my boobies! (I feel your pain!)

haaahah...if we would only get rain I think I'd do cartwheels in it...naked !
Mr. Sweet tells me the grass will be fine...and my roses and other flowers are all turning yellow and dying. The city water, without rain mixed in, is so not good for the plants. But...we do what we gotta do and I have bigger worries than my lawn.:)

Instead of having different providers, it is best to have a single Provider for trash collection.

We have the three-truck/three wheeled bins thing, too. Unfortunately, it starts at ~6:30 a.m. - on Monday mornings!!
