Tidbit Thursday

Just another sloppy/unedited installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head…

Feeling discouraged as I sit here looking at all the things that should have been done – bills to pay, appointments to change, call to see about a new insurance policy, dirty dishes, spider webs in the window .. I could go on but let’s just say that I’m not getting things done.

First week of summer vacation isn’t over yet and we’ve had several arguments, slammed doors and episodes of disrespect and defiance – looking like a long summer. I thought that the tween/teen years would be easier this time around since the boy is (well, has been) quite different from the girl but it feels like a repeat of her early years.

Part of the problem is that the hubby and I do not agree on certain things and had/have a hard time coming to agreement  on how to deal with those situations. I’m not sure how it is going to play out this time but hopefully we can do a better job.

We have had more rain again this week and it looks like it isn’t over yet.  The weeds just keep on coming. It is hard to see any progress and that is discouraging. On the other hand some of the new bulbs I planted have bloomed and they were quite nice. I ‘m waiting on the lily – it has buds but they haven’t opened. I’m afraid that the anchusa azurea I got is dead. I couldn’t plant it right away and I’m afraid it just didn’t make it. On the other hand the tree peony which I thought had died appears to be sending up a shoot – I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will survive. The sweet peas look lovely growing up the lattice.

Guess that’s it for now – hope you are having a great day wherever you are.
