I keep telling myself it is a good day.  We have had fun this afternoon.  We have visited with friends.  Lilly finished ALMOST all of her school work. I really have my fingers crossed for tomorrow being her last day of school but since I planned on the 13th, then the 18th, I am not setting a date anymore.  When the work is all done, school will be finished.  I predict that not all of my students will finish on the same day.

So why the bad day?  I am in full PMS mode for sure.  Grandma's visitation is tomorrow and the funeral Saturday, that is not something to look forward to.  Although, I should be celebrating a life instead of feeling so sad.  I'll try to get there, but for now I just miss her.  The next two days will be very difficult.  Tomorrow is also Erik's birthday...time marches on, doesn't it?

The weather is bad today-GRAY and raining-but my garden needed a good watering and then the sunshine that will follow it up.  We have lots of lettuce and spinach.  We have tiny baby squash and zucchini.  We have the beginnings of pea pods-but the kids usually nab those as soon as they mature and eat them on the spot.  That is why I plant them.

Tonight, I plan to hibernate and read.  I need a time out.  Thanks for allowing me to share my bad mood with you, hopefully it isn't contagious!

I am sorry for the loss of your Grandmother. It is a fine line between being happy for those who have achieved their reward and knowing that we are going to miss them like crazy!

Happy Birthday to Eric.

...And Go, Kids, Go! Onward and Upward to Summer vacation!

Thanks for sharing your garden...we love salad! I plant the peas for the same reason, but for some reason my kids have forgotten this year that they love them. Bother!
