I have been wading through the shit and trying hard to maintain but today I said fuck it and just stayed in bed all day. Tomorrow is another day. I'm grateful for you all.

Fingers crossed for the garden plot and the potential work. The idea of a mushroom farm is fabulous and exciting!

It sounds like you are managing admirably in the face of past, present, and future chaos. Far more pulled-together, I think, than most would be. Hang in there...and thank you for keeping us posted.

Congratulations on home-grown kale!

Grief makes no sense. Sometimes there seems to be no rhyme or reason to when it hits and when it misses. It's real when you feel it, and it's right to give yourself time to process it. I'm sorry this one hit you hard. *hugs*

Kind of topsy-turvy here. I finally dug myself out of my depressive hole, and my dad had a bunch of health issues culminating in a strangulated hernia that landed him in the ER, so I had to go help my mom take care of him. So far so good (I'd been isolating hard for a week but had to go up earlier than I'd planned because of the emergency, so the following week I wore a mask everywhere in the house and kept distance from both parents, sanitized constantly, and generally worried) but I hate the rock-and-a-hard-place this pandemic puts all of us in. If I hadn't come up here, my mom would simply not have been able to manage even getting him to the bathroom on her own. But if I got either of them sick I would not be able to live with myself. No testing here if you're asymptomatic, so I couldn't get that reassurance either. It's a pile of shit.

Anyway, he's improving rapidly and even managed to make his own lunch today, so we're out of the woods for now. I don't know what I'll do in the next emergency.

In other news, my lease is up at the end of June and I have no idea where I'll live but I know I don't want to keep living with roommates but it's a ridiculous time to move so...argh. Argh.

I have one. And did not pay good attention to the carbon/nitrogen/wet/dry balance, and it got stinky and full of flies. No bueno. It's been unused all winter and I'm going to dump it in a corner of the back yard and maybe start over. I think sawdust or dead leaves or even torn-up cardboard to soak up moisture and add carbon were necessary additions that I overlooked. Should research it; still haven't. And now people tell me you're supposed to have *two* so one can fill up and make compost while you add new scraps and leaves to the other... *sigh*

I'm now feeling very happy that I have not yet encountered a rotten one in my Duck Egg Adventures.

I FEEL YOU on taxes. Not just corporations and trillionaires, but the military that works for them! *seethes*
