The truth is I should be in bed. Unfortunately I can't sleep because I'm worried about this dumb test that is at 8:00AM tomorrow morning, not even a big deal, except I don't know the information well enough. Now that I think of it, I'm not sure I've taken one test in PA school where I've felt prepared.
Why am I worried now? It's no different from any other test...I don't know! Probably because it's late and I'm tired.

I should be asleep but instead I wanted to say HI!

Home improvements

We have been spending a lot of time working in our little backyard lately; you've seen our grow box, and now we've added a porch swing! It took pretty much all weekend (and then some), and my fingers and knuckles are all mangled, but it's finished, and it looks pretty sweet if I do say so myself!

As soon as we got it up, we went and sat out on our porch for almost 2 hours just hanging out enjoying the weather!

We had a few... setbacks... namely one of the support beams broke in two while I was hanging on it, trying to see how strong it was. Apparently, it wasn't very strong! It was pretty scary because I was hanging directly underneath an 8-foot long 4x4 which came crashing down right next to me!

Our grow box experienced a little setback of its own; I thought I would go and do a good deed and put fertilizer out there because some of the plants weren't looking so hot. Well, apparently you're not supposed to bury your wife's favorite in steer manure, I guess they don't like that sort of thing. So yeah, a bunch of our plants died, especially the flowers. Natalie was very sad, and I got in big trouble! Thankfully, our food plants survived for the most part, and now we have a few little green strawberries growing in our back yard!
