It's been awhile...

I told y'all I was anti-social! Or busy. Mostly, daily drama involving the teenagers in this house, coupled with multiple loads of laundry, various hours on the Wii, tilling a new garden, planting said garden, cleaning up, working, and sleeping.

I haven't touched my sewing machine to quilt in... months. I did, however, finish the "mending" pile that was threatening to take over the table. I can't convince the people in this house that the machine is only for quilting.

I visit my garden daily... and speak nice things to the very few plants that decided to spring forth from seed. I planted a little early (last frost date for here is Friday), and we had a couple of days of pretty good rain. I think it may have washed out some of the seeds. I purposely didn't plant them all, so that I would have some seeds left to plant at a more appropriate time! So, wouldn't you know, there is a freeze warning out for tonight. So my beautiful peas, beans, strawberries, potatos, and ONE zucchini may not make it through the night. I'm still hopeful though!

Other than that, my truck is in the transmission shop. (Insert really sad face here). It will be about a week and a half before I can drive it again, and I really miss it. I can't stand driving any of the kid's cars, and we have been playing car tag around here for a week already. It's a pain to see who has to be at work at what time, who can drive who where, or pick up who when. And we are all on different schedules. DH and I are at work before 6 am, DS works 10 pm to 7 am, DD is at school from 8 to 2, and my stepson works 4 pm to whenever. So it's been interesting.

So, I guess that's the update on the happenings around here. I'll try not to let it be so long next time!
