Funny how perfectly that fit me, as I was feeling sorry for myself and all my problems. Funny also that everywhere I look on my blog reading list, people are posting about enjoying what is around us and not worrying about tomorrow. It's like everyone knows what is going on in my life and they are writing their thoughts and advice for me. Maybe we're all connected on a subconscious level. Maybe I'm reading way too much into this. Maybe I should get to the point.
My point is, work interferes with life. And it seems to be especially irritating right now.
Were it not for work, my husband could actually enjoy a campout with the little man this weekend. We could plan that trip to Washington and go see Les Miserables in Seattle in August. The up side to work is the money, I guess. I do like to have a roof over my head and without that money, rent wouldn't be paid and I wouldn't even have a car to live in because money pays for that too. Of course, the car isn't running right now, which calls for even more money, which means even more work. That also causes us to apply for even more jobs and then wait to see if we even get a call. Yep, work totally interferes with my life.
To distract myself from all those depressing work/money thoughts, I headed out to the garden. It's doing well, despite me and my monster and the crazy weather. Yesterday, as I was on my way to the grocery store to spend money, it started to rain. No problem there, we're used to rain this year. Then, it started to hail and I realized that my poor plants were out there getting their heads banged around, so around I turned and headed back home to cover them up. Of course, by the time I actually pulled into the driveway, the storm had passed but I covered them anyway just to be on the safe side. I think most everything is okay. There are a few sad looking squash plants, but all in all, it's good.
hoop house of last year. I strung a few little ropes to secure them and I'll be adding more as I go. This is just for starters.
Well, off to check the wanted ads... :)
