Tuesday again, time to get all random with the Un-Mom...
Holy Moly, I had 4 (count 'em!) participants in yesterday's Garden Monday! Thanks, Sheila for sending everyone with a garden over here. It will be fun to see what we can all grow by the end of the season! I may not be planting anything outdoors yet, but some of my warmer climate Bloggy friends have already planted and even harvested a few garden goodies. Go check them out by following the links at the bottom of yesterday's post.
It's rainy and cold here today so the greenhouse cart is once again in the shed under the faux sunshine. Some days I feel that summer is never going to get here. Remind me of this when I complain about the heat and eventual lack of rain in a few months.
Recently a letter was sent home from Mae's teacher requesting parent helpers to go along on the field trip to the zoo next month. Since I don't work, other than the dairy farm cow shit fest twice a week, I volunteered. A few days later a letter was sent home from Binny's teacher with all of the info for the parent-child kindergarten picnic, on the same day! Fuck! Luckily (or not, depending on how you look at it) the Gardener is still laid off from work so perhaps he can go to one or the other. Just stinks that they scheduled it all on the same day.
I never knew that there were so many people born in the month of May! Seriously, Binny has been invited to 3 birthday parties in the last month and we're having one here at the house for her in a few weeks. And what the hell is up with goodie bags? Seriously, after each party she comes home with a bag full of candy and cheap plastic, made in China throw away crap toys. I know it's all about the kids and kids love candy and brightly colored plastic toys but I can't bring myself to go to all that trouble just for high fructose corn syrup and the possibility of lead based paint. Without being one of those moms that only allows all natural ingredients and buys all of her kids toys from handcrafters on Etsy, what's a parent to do? Any suggestions?
Enough complaining for me today. See what this rain and cloudy weather does to me? Be sure to stop by Keely's blog for the whole Random Tuesday line up.
