I'll admit it. I broke down and cried this afternoon. I am just feeling so overwhelmed with trying to manage the garden and finish the chicken coop on my own. The garden is rapidly disappearing under a blanket of weeds and the chicken coop remains unfinished.
The tears? I was already tired from a really busy day at work. I was trying to put up the last bits of siding on the way high up parts of the coop. THINGS were not cooperating and pieces measured multiple times before cutting didn't fit... and I was running out of siding so every cut mattered. I was FRUSTRATED!!! And everything seems to be happening so slowly. I couldn't put the wire over the windows because I realized that we don't have the trim pieces ready. I ran out of nails... and now it's storming again.
But, V came and held me and let me cry for a bit and then helped me finish the siding- so the world seems a bit brighter... but it's still raining... and the chicken coop isn't finished... and I STILL don't have my vining crops planted... and the garden is a mass of weeds... and I still haven't planted the comfrey plant that J17 brought home from work... or our new kiwi that arrived to replace the one that didn't overwinter... or a couple of other flowers... and I have a huge mountain of laundry... and I feel incredibly guilty because I promised our friend Jim that I would till up a garden space at his new house and I have failed miserably at that. Oh, and I have a bunch of huge onions to chop and freeze (my brother brought them on Sunday- more later on those).
So, I remain overwhelmed. But, I have Friday off since I worked last Saturday (and it's my birthday).
Tomorrow is another day- I'll see what I get done.
Thanks for letting me whine. Maybe I'll try to make some cheese to go with it some time....
