The Lawn Mower Gnomes

Someone mowed our lawn.

We suspect the neighbors.

We don't understand why, and are not quite sure what to do.

We went to the store this weekend, and came back and the neighbors were sorta watching us. So we waved and tracked all the kids down and dragged them inside. McRed made a comment about them expecting us to come over sometime. It was an odd comment looking back.

Today I went to take Drama to the dentist (three baby teeth need to be pulled, one cavity tooth pulled - baby again - and a cavity replaced) and noticed, hmm, the lawn seems shorter. Not only shorter, but, it looks, well, edged.

I don't know what to do. On the one hand, I am certainly happy as I don't have to do it. On the other, should I be embarassed (I mean, it was NOT that bad, seriously, it's been worse -- my other neighbor's is all brown nobody sneaks out and turns on his water...) or just let it go? Should I sneak out at midnight and leave 'if you mowed my lawn thank you' cards at all the suspects homes?

Remember, these are my most confusing neighbors ever. I never know what they are thinking, how to act around them or anything.

Mowed my lawn.

I can't believe it.

Lolrofl...why don't you leave a little jar with some cash in it. Put it in your yard with a sign saying "Thanks for mowing our lawn, here's a tip."

Then...just for kicks...put a little sticky note on that said sign which reads "Here's a list of lawn(garden) stuff we intended to do but never got around to doing so if you would be so kind, could you please complete the list as well? Thanks, oh and here's a pre-emptive tip."
