These are my Confessions (3)

We have a garden.
A very neglected garden.  This year was my first attempt at gardening since the house we bought had a built in planter box on the side.  I had big ambitions - 8 tomato plants, peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, cauliflower, broccoli, and chinese cabbage.  The first to die was the chinese cabbage - those poor plants didn't have a chance.  The rest did fairly well.  However, I didn't know what to do with the harvest.  I had never made anything with a zucchini before so I picked them off the vine and they sat on my kitchen counter until they went bad.  Terrible.  Patrick asked me why I planted something if I didn't know how to cook it.  I don't know?  I guess I just wanted to see if I could grow it?  Once Claire was born, the garden went downhill.  I didn't have time to water or pick the veggies.  I knew it had gotten bad when my neighbor lady Gloria knocked on our front door to tell Patrick to tell me that I needed to pick my tomatoes before they went bad or the bugs got them. Oops!  Maybe I'll pick some today...but probably not.

Claire's nursery is still not finished.
I had all these big ideas and grand plans about the look and design of the nursery.  But once she came early, I haven't done an ounce of work in that room and it is not used at all since she currently sleeps in our bedroom.  It's kinda embarassing when people come to visit and want to see the nursery and it is still in shambles and unfinished.  Maybe I'll spend some time in there today...but probably not.

My thank you cards are still sitting in their box.
Remember three weeks ago when I confessed that I was still working on them?  Well, I haven't made much progress.  And now I just picked up 100 birth announcements to mail out.  Let me repeat myself - 100 birth announcements.  Am I crazy or what?  I might have all this done by the time Claire turns one ten.
