advice for the day

If you think your life is so busy you can't manage. You're not getting things done the way you want. You feel like things are a bit overwhelming.

Don't trip over the dog.

How do I know...well, as you may have guessed, I did just that. Medial Collateral Ligament torn on the right knee. A brace, a cane, no driving for a bit. I'm tempted to say life just couldn't get anymore interesting, but then again I don't care to tempt fate so I wont say it.

One good thing is that the Manny, the guy who is coming with his crew to rip out half of our garden and replace it with grass came by. They're starting in two weeks. While I have loved this garden it is simply too much to take care of. I will still have the entire front, both side gardens and the top band of the back garden. But the rest will no longer be there. I am giving away plants to whoever comes to get them and looking forward to less physical and mental stress as I will no longer have to watch the back garden be overrun by invasives and weeds.

The rest of life is still a bit chaotic but hopefully it will come under control soon.

Rest up and get better soon!

I don't have the heart to get rid of any of my gardens and really, I could do without a few of them. I have so many, taking care of them all could easily be a full-time job! I gasped when you said you are seeding yours with grass, but I certainly understand. Perhaps I could learn a lesson from you ;-)

Are you going to have to have surgery on your knee? I pray not! If so, we know a great doctor in KINGWOOD! Mark used him after he tore his ACL...

Hoping things slow down and you cheer up!

Love ya~
