My HOA is the pits!

I live in outer suburbia, where all the houses are no more than 3 years old. And I HATE our HOA, mainly because they so blatantly play favorites when enforcing the covenants.

This spring, I had a small bare patch in my front yard. I don't even know what happened, all the grass around it was fine.

Making a quilt for a healthy America
