We have lawns. We chose not to have grass in our yard because we're lazy, but plenty of people do. Some houses have cacti, some don't. It doesn't look like a desert in the city, you have to drive out a bit.
We skipped the gym today because my tech felt sick and I really wanted to get home and get to sleep. I didn't get sleep, anyway, so should've just gone. Doing the gym after today's shift, though!! And I'm giving the hockey tickets away for tomorrow's game so the hubs and I can spend some quality time together before I go in to work.
