We managed to shovel some muck off the edge of the patio, spread several bags of topsoil, and throw down grass seed. It's supposed to rain over the next couple days. We didn't have the energy to pick up the raked grass, though, and some of that is sitting where I need to put more seed. Fuck it, do that later.
The heat has me completely wiped. Our air conditioning is not keeping up at all, even though the house is somewhat cooler than outside during day. Still no word on getting the damn thing fixed either. >_<
