I’m not going to apologize for my long absence from this blog. I’ve said it before, this is for me, so I’m not going to feel any sort of guilt about my life getting busy and not spending as much time here.
There’s also not a real point to this post, I figured I’d just brain dump some of what’s gone on in my life since March when I last posted.
So, we made it through tax season. Andrew survived another busy season, and our home and lives didn’t fall apart in the process. We owed lots of taxes this year due to some poor planning, but we’re planning better for next year.
NC voted at the beginning of May for a Constitutional Amendment defining marriage. I’m disappointed in our state. We need to do more to educate people on legislation that they’re voting on. There were a lot of people who said after the vote that they didn’t fully understand the amendment.
Emma was sick last week. She’s way better now, but last week she was a pitiful mess. She spent Wednesday at the Vet’s office (we LOVE our vet) and has a collection of medications now. She’s almost back to herself.
This weekend Andrew and Emma and I went up to Richmond for our friend’s birthday. Another friend also came up, and we had a great time hanging out with them. On Saturday, we went to the River Rock festival on the James River in Richmond and we got to see the Sylvan GO camper trailer that I’ve wanted to see in person. And y’all, this thing is as cool in person as it looks in pictures. I figured that they probably used a really wide angle lens to take their stock photos, and that it wouldn’t be that big. But I was wrong, it’s really that big. Very cool, I want one, but I also want the time and energy to use it.
Andrew also survived spring semester of Grad school, and summer classes are well underway. He’s only taking one class this summer, and I think we’re both ready for the break that begins at the end of June.
This coming weekend includes the 2 year anniversary of my mom’s death. That day is also Andrew’s birthday. I don’t know yet what our weekend plan is, it’s a hard one to plan. We want to do something with my dad, but I also don’t want to totally monopolize Andrew’s birthday weekend.
My garden is growing, except my bell peppers aren’t doing well. I can’t really figure out why they’re not growing. The plants are still about 8″ tall, but they’re flowering. Hopefully they’ll shoot up soon. My squash and tomatoes and herbs are doing really well. Even our lettuce and spinach is still doing well.
