My life is a lot like my garden right now. And not in a good way.
School started, which is actually a good thing.
|1st day of school photo. That's how we roll.|
|What? That's what my face looks like.|
|So when you give a kid a camera, not all photos will be of the floor.|
|Still seems like summer.|
|Gavin in all his Capt. Underpants glory is in his "space-ship". Again...that's how we roll.|
|Can't tell weed from plant? Sometimes I can't either.|
|I should be getting baskets full of tomatoes, corn, pumpkins, carrots, onions...|
|...potatoes, herbs, green peppers, jalapenos, raspberries, beans...|
|...cantaloupe, watermelon, peas...|
|...zucchini and squash.|
|But I I'm getting mostly weeds. (And that awesome shadow.)|
|Instead, I get this every couple of days. It's barely enough to feed one person, much less my family.|
The responsibilities seem overwhelming. A burden I bear with a tangible weight. I can't keep up with the weeds. They are suffocating my garden and my life.
But what can I do? Give up on my garden? on my life? Cut out something? What? Tell me. What in my life is absolutely unnecessary? (And if you say "this blog", I'll punch you in the e-kidneys.)
