Re: ****Making A Home Monday****

  • We don't.  Boring, I know.  We will have to get our flag out and hung up, though.  We did listen to Lee Greenwood's God Bless the USA while we were driving home from San Diego today.  I love that song, it's my favorite patriotic song.  
    Happily Mrs. C

    We grill and usually go to the pool. Today we got ice cream and just spent time together as a family. It was awesome!

    I don't get many days off so I spent Saturday and Sunday cleaning. We got the patio taken care of and I planted some veggies in big pots. Hoping to have fresh spinach, lettuce, broccoli, and squash this summer!

    My extended family plants our huge garden together in the morning. My husband is a disabled combat vet (Iraq) and we typically lay low. He's always very quiet and reserved on memorial day, and I try not to push him to talk about it. 
    After two losses, a rainbow arrived! DD born 11.5.11
    Dx with severe Asherman's syndrome after a botched PP D&C (pursuing med mal)
    Hysteroscopy Oct '13, not enough progress 
    Hysteroscopy Jan '14, given an end-of-the-road diagnosis
    Joined International Asherman's Association April '14 
    Not ready to give up yet.
    Hysteroscopy with Dr. Isaacson (an expert in the USA) 6.2.14: Good prognosis, at least 50% of cavity open.
    Repeat hysteroscopy scheduled with Dr. I on 6.16.14. Great progress. Unbenched!!!!
    Discussing actively TTC with DH after the heartache of the last year. We're both reeling.
     
    Please, please, please.

    mbo109, peppers can be hard. I know in Maine if you put them out too early they don't do well. We have everything but our peppers planted. I won't put them in for a few more weeks. Container gardening works well as long as you have the right kind of soil. You don't want to use just potting soil because the nutrients aren't quite right. I start with a bag of promix and fertilize depending on what I'm growing. For basil and tomatoes you should be able to use 10x10x10 fertilizer. Or if you want to go all organic (which we do for most of our stuff) you can use a compost & promix base.
