Holidays are upon us....

Category: Random Gardening Thoughts | Posted: Wed Nov 05, 2014 1:17 pm

I work for a shipping company and this time of year is a nightmare! It gets so busy and crazy that we put in days that seem never ending. The only consolation I get from it is that I get overtime and can afford to buy Christmas gifts for my family. I like working hard. It always makes me feel accomplished, but more than once I have thought that maybe this isn't the place for me. It is not busy all year around and I have a desk job, so it can be boring and slow in the off season. I have been put into a new position and feel that I am a little more respected than I was previously. These people seem to care about you when they need you, but if you can't do anything for them, they are quick to discard you like trash. They pay enough that someone like myself without a degree cannot go into another position without experience and make the same thing, so for the sake of my family, I stay. It is not all bad or I wouldn't have been there as long as I have. I came here just to explain why I haven't been on Garden Stew recently and likely won't be for some time into the future until after the holidays, then ended up pouring out my thoughts. Then, I feel bad for complaining when some people don't have a job at all...

On another subject, it got cold here the last few days, but temperature is rising again. It never really is very cold here, but we had some pretty cold nights. I was thinking my plants outside would be fine until we actually get some frosty weather, but I have one that is wilting. It makes me so sad. I just don't know what I am doing, but I am trying. I moved her inside and hope to revive her. She seems already to be doing better, so we shall see.

Home life is not great right now either, but that sad story is to be saved for another day. Off to work! I really hope to see you all soon!
