this is the part i hate....

Classes ended last week with final exams due on Tuesday. All I can do now is wait, which is the part I hate the most.

Grades for the final still aren’t posted. My final grade depends on how well I did on that test and I hate not knowing!

*drums fingers on desk*

Patience is a virtue I am NOT blessed with!

trying to turn my black thumb green....

Going green seems to be the catch phrase of the moment. In my own personal effort to “go green” I have started a container garden.

Now, gardening is something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve had some luck with flowers, but I’ve also killed my fair share of plants. I did a lot of research on container gardens and decided I was ready to take the plunge.

Sir and I went shopping and spent about $20 on pepper and tomato plants with some basil and lettuce seeds. I planted everything except the basil right away. So far, so good! I have a teensy little baby pepper on one plant and everything else is still alive! Yay me!

This is the test before we get the new house built. I’ve been asking for a garden and Sir has said I can have one. I figure I can handle it if I can get things to grown on my balcony. The difficult part is going to be deciding WHAT to grow! I’m not going to have a lot of space and keep thinking of more things to add to it. Strawberries, cucumbers, cantelope, peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, asparagus (for Sir, of course!), carrots, oh, my!

At least I have some time to plan it all out. And I’m more confident I won’t kill it all!

needing some ideas....

Sir’s birthday is coming up soon and I’m at a loss. When I ask Him what He would like, He says things like, “dinner at McD’s” or other minimal activities.

I know He doesn’t like to have His birthday be a big deal. I get that! I really do! I’m not big on my birthday either, but I do want to do something nice for Him. When I’ve tried to explain WHY it’s important to me, He just shrugs it off and tells me to let it go.

I’m looking for ideas, here. Can any of you think of something that wouldn’t seem like I’m making a big deal about His birthday but would allow me to show Him how grateful I am to have Him in my life?

i know..... i know....

I know it’s been ages since I’ve been around. It’s not that I don’t think about all my friends here, it’s just that time is so difficult to come by these days.

I’m traveling again for work. *sigh* Fortunately, I’m managing to keep it down to once a month. This year, it’s Boston more than Chicago. The last three trips I’ve been on have been “team” trips. A group going to one city or the other for meetings and presentations. I don’t mind the Boston trips so much, though. It’s so much easier to take the train than it is to fly to Chicago. One of these days, though, I have to stop on my way home. I pass right by Providence and that’s pretty close to a very special lady I still want to meet! (Hint, hint, Foulmama!)

Sir’s house is on the market, but no luck in selling it yet. There’s a part of me that tries to stay serene about the situation and another part that is chomping at the bit. Once the house is sold, we can move forward with our lives and our plans. I want that so badly, but I also am very comfortable with the life we have now. Isn’t it silly? I want it both ways....

School is, as usual, time consuming. I have a final exam to take this weekend, then no more classes for a couple of weeks. I’ll be so glad when this is all over! Another year at this rate and I’m already just so tired of it. There are days when I am convinced I am just an idiot for even trying to do this right now.

All in all, life is good! I shouldn’t complain, because things are just going so well for me. So feel free to smack me! lol
