The backyard would be a multi-day job anyway. I can't get it all cut in one go. The yard is too big and the grass is too high. The mower chokes on grass taller than a few inches so it's literally a battle of moving the mower forward half a foot and then back half a foot, forward, and back, forward and back over and over to get through just one mower-width strip of grass. And forget about using the bag. Just get it cut down and move the hell on - who cares about the piles of grass hay that will coat the yard afterward.
Just as I was finishing editing some commentary I got an aura. And instead of showing up and then going away like they typically do it's blossoming into an actual headache. So now the grass cutting I wasn't looking forward to in the first place is feeling like more and more of an impossibility. Which is just crap because it was my sole goal for the day, something I busted ass on my report all week in order to be able to do today. Nothing like feeling like the day is a waste before 1pm.
