Why is peace so hard? she said & I said peace is easy.
Keeping our mouths shut is hard.

not so rambling...

Apparently, I don't have a whole lot to say after all. Of course, what's the point if you feel like you're just talking to yourself anyway.

I hate gardening....

Or maybe gardens hate me. I'd give it up if I wasn't so stubborn. (Don't tell my husband that - he thinks I suck at it, too, and doesn't like to spend the money on my endeavor.)
I planted like 35 peas. Six, yes six, came up. WTF?! (Yes, I may have occasional potty-mouth. But at least I use (mostly) proper grammar and punctuation.) I planted a ton of carrot seeds. Um... let's see 12 per sq. foot and 7 feet.... 84 seeds. And those damn things are tiny! Three kinds. The longest to germinate is supposed to be like 3 weeks max. It's been a month dammit - where's my carrots?!? I *think* I see some sprouts. Assuming that isn't grass. No, my soil isn't that great but that's no excuse!
It's an emotional roller coaster. You plant your seeds... ooh, the thrill of anticipation. And you wait. Sometimes not so patiently. Finally.... a sprout! Woohoo!! I just gave birth. It's it adorable???? Then you have to wait for it grow up and be productive. Try and nurture it along the way. And hopefully it will be a productive plant after all the work you put into it. Sometimes you don't get a sprout. And you are so sad. You really wanted sprouts. You have to try again. Time is running out. The biological clock is ticking. And you start again, crossing your fingers.

If all else fails you go and adopt from the nursery. You will care for your new plants just like they were your own but you missed the thrill of giving birth. Of starting out with that tiny seed and seeing it makes its way in the world. But you will give them love, and hopefully, after all is said and done, they will be productive and give back to you.

That is why I still keep trying. Because the rewards are great.

Change - part 2

I try to not make more than one post a day. I don't know - like maybe people don't want to come back for a second one. Or they won't notice it. If they even come here at all. :p But I just had to come back and complain. WTH is with all the change lately?? FB is forcing people into their new timeline. Which I hate. Another friend just fell victim and she's not happy about it. Then I come to the blog the other day and they changed it. So there I was, trying to find my way like the blind mouse who's tail was cut off with a carving knife! So... I just went to the Weather Channel's website to check up on my local weather. And lo and behold! THEY CHANGED IT! When will it end????? I may have to hold off on my underwear for a few days just so I can adjust to all this upheaval. Just kidding. I can handle the changing of the underwear. As a matter of fact - I had bought some new ones recently. LOL But I wish they'd stop springing this other stuff on me!


That's the word for the month. For good or bad, life isn't static. It's constantly changing. Sometimes though, when we want to change, our old habits keep getting in the way. Or we sit in a rut because it's easier than expending the energy spinning our wheels trying to get out. I'm still working on that 'get healthy' thing from February. LOL
