got hte house nice and clean,
had a nice short visit with mommy (too short :( it makes me so sad she doesn't get to spend as long here anymore)
feeling good about tomorrow, and all the planting we'll get to do, and maybe shabby sheep too!
i forgot to eat dinner, but maybe we can do something fun when mark comes home, to celebrate finally having a day off.

kelsey is getting married.
we got a new tv. it is nice and big.
i beat the 2mil challenge on katamari.
it snowed two days ago, and i really want to garden, but i've just been so much busier this year. it just makes me sad, because i know that even the little bit of time that I will get to spend gardening won't matter, because it won't be enough, and everything will do badly, because I'm not there to take care of it every day.
it is so hard not to be able to garden. really, right now, it feels like that is the only thing i want to do, ever, for the rest of my life. i've begun thinking about career options that would support this ability, but i'm not sure, because i know eventually i will just be a stay-at-home mom and get to have a garden in my back yard, and then i will be happy. getting to that backyard is the issue.
i don't know what to do with my compost heap, if i should let it take up room in my garden, or if i should ask to be allowed to put it somewhere else.

so far in the garden i've got mint, onions, and blackberries.
sprouting, i've got basil, chamomile, zucchini, green beans, marigolds, and in pots i've got chives, parsley, more basil, rosemary and something else i can't remember. some assorted flowers.
i want to also do: peppers, hot and/or green, cucumbers, potatoes, tomatoes, and garlic. possibly more onions around the edge, if there's not enough garlic? and maybe some poppies just because i love them so much.
