The Thing about Taking a Break…


Of course, wouldn’t you know the week of our break I would get sick?!




It’s just a cold, but it’s making me really unhappy. I don’t want to be sick. I want to have fun. I want to do productive things around my house. I want to accomplish a lot of things, none of which coincide with coughing up my lungs or blowing my nose copiously (on a sidenote: do you know if it’s a good time to plant tomatoes? I’m directing this mainly to Abbey, our resident horticulturist). ALSO, I have to go to a hockey game tomorrow – my first- EVER hockey game. And how in the world can I go to a hockey game if I don’t have a voice for screaming? That’s an obvious prerequisite.

But anyway, NOW, I’ve got to come up with ways to diagnose myself and enact a very, very fast cure. I’m thinking perhaps a hot shower and some Chinese food. That sounds like an excellent cure, wouldn’t you say?

  1. Yes, it is tomato time. Our average last freeze date is March 15, which means today is the first day to plant tomatoes. A lot of people, us included, risked the potential cold weather and put our tomatoes in a few weeks ago. To make up for lost time and harvest fruit sooner, I suggest forgoing the traditional the six pack of transplants and buying the biggest transplants you can afford from the nursery.
    Enjoy the hockey game. It is one sport I really enjoying seeing live, even though I have no idea what is going on. With all of your sports involvement, I bet you’ll be hooked.

  2. Oh no 😦 Colds suck. It’s the energy flagging, the constant yuckiness. This is gross but… nasal irrigation. Hope you’re feeling better…
