First up, if you haven’t already, check out Her Green Life’s snazzy new Facebook page. I’ve resisted creating one for awhile, but I decided to give it a trial run, as another way for you to stay up-to-date on posts here. Simply “Like” the page to stay in the loop!
Employment, or lack thereof
I’ve now been unemployed for over nine months. Unlike the results of nine months of pregnancy, nothing special happens after nine months of being unemployed. However, if we did have a fourth family member, we would qualify for food stamps on our one-job income. Interesting, no? (But definitely NOT incentive to have another child!)
That said, I have a job interview on Monday — fingers crossed!
Regardless of what happens with the interview, Sir will resume part-time child care starting sometime in June. It’s something I’ve been pondering for awhile. It should be good for his social development and my sanity. The hardest part for me is giving up control of nap time, meals, etc.
Prior to that, Sir will travel with Baba (grandma) to Florida. It’s bittersweet because I’ll miss his first time in the ocean, but it means I’ll have over a week child-free! Look for some long-overdue posts that I’ve been meaning to write.
In the garden
The cooler, rainy spring means slow growth for most everything. Our pea plants (snow and sugar snap) are quite stunted, and, in general, most everything (other than the weeds) is behind given the cooler, rainy spring.
However, after a crazy weeknight gardening blitz, we have seventy, yes, 7-0, tomato plants in the ground. Grow, babies, grow!
And, last, but certainly not least, sometime in the next few weeks, I’ll be embarking on an exciting bike-related project, as well as a new phase in my bike-commuting journey. Stay tuned!
