No, we don't have trash pick up. Yes, I grew up with it and I'm annoyed with the piles of stinky trash that outline my garage. Yes, I nag my husband constantly about it. No, we probably will never have trash pick up again. If we have a truck, why waste 20 bucks on pick up (right Babe)? It's really not that bad and I appreciate the money saved. I try not to complain, but sometimes it's hard to load the kids in the van. However, my kids LOVE to go to the dump with Daddy. Seriously, they do! I hope my kids always stay this easy to entertain. You know, when they are 16 and 14 I'm sure they will still love to ride in Daddy's big blue truck and go to the dump! Maybe I'm living in a fantasy world, maybe one with trash pickup????
