Yadda Yadda

You've got a lot of choices. If getting out of bed in the morning is a chore and you're not smiling on a regular basis, try another choice. ~Steven D. Woodhull

Not much to say today. Yesterday was busy but uneventful, and hopefully today will be the same. The dog is miserable with allergies: runny eyes, rash, and SUCH bad itchiness. I bought a pile of new medicated shampoos, tea tree oil and oatmeal spray, etc., that we'll try. I despise steroids with an all-consuming passion (which is what the vet suggested), so we're just going to have to stick it out until it freezes (which considering it got down into the 40s last night, might be sooner than later).

My garden is pretty well done -- the chipmunks are eating the few tomatoes I have before they even get more than a blush of pink on them, the cucumbers are doing their "fat butt" game where they are bitter and full of seeds, and the squash borers did a number on my summer squash. My eggplant never grew one blossom. The butternut squash is still going gangbusters, but the rest? Finis.

Six days until school starts, and I'm ready to go back to homeschooling.

I've decided that the stores have figured out that people are coming in to buy their loss leaders only and have quit offering the really amazing deals. I haven't done much couponing the last couple of weeks because the bargains just aren't there.

So are the days of my life.



You Are as Laid Back as They Come

You are a risk taker. You love to roll the dice on everything.

You are surprisingly easygoing. You like to keep everything as low-pressure as possible.

You like to be in the middle of the action, although you don't purposely seek attention.

You are an easygoing person who feels very comfortable about others.

Mostly right.

Busy. Tired. Insomnia having fun with me.

But, I wish you were closer. The gardens are bursting.

I hope your dog feels better soon! It's been chilly here too, so maybe allergy season will wind down.

Wishing you a peaceful day.

Our garden was mostly a big flop this year, too. We still have a watermelon plant that it over 12 feet long, but only one watermelon on it and a blackberry plant that never bore fruit but that is trying to take over the entire garden, too. Sorry to hear about your tomatoes and the chipmunks.
Aww, Poor Dakota! I hope she feels better soon.
I hear you on the lack of sales. I just wanted to buy each of my kids one pair of jeans. WHY? Do they want you to pay more than $30 for a pair? WTHeck?

Quiz: You Are a Nature Child
At your core, you are individualistic. You are most comfortable flying solo.
You are always keenly aware of your environment. You notice every sight, sound, and smell.
You are unconventional and even a little weird. You refuse to conform.
You are trusting by default. You think people are basically good.

Pretty spot on actually.

I hope you have a good day!

I'm tired and that's mostly work-related.

I hope your day was pleasant.

Our garden never really got started.

I hope Dakota feels better soon!
