LOL! at the comments on my earlier entry :) Let me start this entry by saying that: 1. I am the LEAST organized person! My house is a clutter nightmare because of it, and the fact that I am usually too busy playing in the dirt or my kids to care :) 2. I really don't want another child- the thought of getting no sleep and changing diapers again gives me nightmares LOL! 3. I am actually a pretty lazy person who needs a great deal of motivation to get things I don't want to do done. If it wasn't for temps near 100 today I would've been out gardening instead of napping.
I have come to the conclusion already that if I want to get anything accomplished, it will have to be between when Logan gets on the bus at 7:15 am, and Megan gets on at 10:20 am. By the time I get Logan off I am awake, with nothing really to do because I have everything ready to go the night before. Therefore instead of sitting being bored while waiting to get Meg off I should actually do some cleaning or whatever while I have the tiniest amount of motivation :) We'll see how that works tomorrow morning when I try to put it into practice.
Now for the real reason for part 2 of Today in the Garden- TS Hannah. Every update brings her landfall closer to my area. The good news is we don't have a Weather Channel crew here yet LOL! :) It's like the tornado chasing people- you know when they show up it's gonna be bad.
I'm really hoping for the rain though- all my plants are really looking sad, despite being watered. As any gardener knows, nothing beats a good rain for reviving a garden.
I do plan on canning my latest tomato harvest tomorrow- I have a HUGE salad bowl filled with them, with yet more on the way. I'm thinking of stewing this batch to use over the winter, I use stewed tomatoes a lot in my cooking.

I hope Hannah only brings you rain, and no bad winds or flooding! Just HATE HATE HATE Hurricane season! Eventually you will get some gumption to do something with your kids gone. It's like someone knocks the wind out of you, and you wonder if you're ever gonna revive! I understand the clutter and not totally cleaning house. Clint's been gone for 6 years and I finally cleaned his room last year! (It really wasn't that bad)

Yes I too am awaiting to see where and what Hanna does in a few days. Going to go out and put in some potential 'flying objects' today.
I so remember those early days and wondering what to do with those very few hours between pickups of the kids. It was a fun time of life though. Just Enjoy. LB

Gee, my house is a mess and I don't have kids to distract me, lol! I'm hoping Hannah holds off a bit, at least until I get home tomorrow. I have to drive down to Berkeley county for an inservice tomorrow morning and don't really want to drive back in rain and wind.
