A 40year old female living in New England..... rambling about parenting 4 kids,homeschooling, autism, spiritual abuse, relatives, politics and any other thought that passes through this old brain.
I mostly ramble on "in the garden"
REMEMBER those ambitions of mine to build the teepees by St. Patricks Day??
Well, I am a little behind.
That seems to be my mantra since I have given birth in September......I'm a little behind, I'm a little behind........I'm a little behind.
puffing out those words like the Little Engine that could.
For a woman who HAD to be 15 minutes early or she was late....this mantra is one of those things that I have to let go off.
Was it one too many kid? Was it simply that I turned 40? Maybe I am having some vitamen deficiency since I gave birth. I don't know.
I did get caught up with myself but then it was time to return to work after my 6 month maternity leave.
so now I am behind AGAIN!
I find ways to beat myself.
This time? I planted 3 beds of SUGAR SNAP PEAS. This way I figure I can still replant them or plant more!
We have gathered the poles from our woods. It took some doing, if you could imagine trying to convince the 7 year old that a 10 inch round rotted oak tree that was about 10 feet long- wouldn't quite match the other limbs we found.
Then a pirate fight broke out in my yard, after all the limbs make GREAT pirate swords.
Just when we had exactly the amount of matching tree limbs that we needed, a WAIL from Sam was heard- it was time to nurse.
So the poles remain lined up- ready to go up- today?
