Aaaaaaaggggghhhhhhh! My 7 yo is working on my last nerve. He's going through a phase that I assure you, may be the death of me. *deep breath* I feel like these last couple of weeks, he's been testing my patience. We've been so busy around here getting ready for spring and summer, and little man just seems determined to whine and argue about everything. I'm truly blessed though because my mom came over tonight and helped us put up the pool. Afterwards she helped me prepare dinner, and even washed dishes while I ate and put little man in the shower.
I have to admit that I recently became a little envious of friends talking about planting gardens. So I shared with hubby and he tilled up a spot for me and we've been planting all kinds of stuff. I noticed tonight that I'm already getting blooms on my roma and grape tomato plants. My red and sweet white onions are growing strong, and well...pretty much everything seems to be living. Which is a good thing for me since hubby hasn't been able to help much. I think I may have lost 2 lettuce plants, and I didn't get the potatoes in on time. I'll try to get them dug tomorrow just in case one of them survives. My mom told me to plant some garlic cloves and I almost didn't, but I have three shoots that have popped up. Too cool. My herbs are ready to start harvesting so I'll have to find some yummy recipes to share and use my fresh herbs. We started buying our canning supplies and I'm soooo looking forward to fresh pico, salsa, and spaghetti sauce.
And he is asleep!! YES!! Okay guys, I'm off to get some writing time in before I crash for the night. How do you do it? Anyone else struggling with life interrupting your writing?
