Just Checking In

Life is trucking along.  The LoML did a run to Aldi last Tuesday and spent almost $300.  The only item on the list they didn't have was flour, of all things.  Really people? They still didn't have toilet paper or sanitizing wipes.  We don't need them but I find it irritating that people are still stockpiling. We will make do.

We were notified Thursday that my company's remote work will continue until June 1.  At the same time our President is pushing to open the economy and send folks back to work.  I feel terrible that so many are unemployed and hanging on by a thread, but I can't help but think, I'd rather be alive and scraping by than employed and risk dying.  But that is easy for me to say.

We received out stimulus funds.  However my 2 recently launched daughters have not.  Both have filed taxes for the last several years and had the funds electronically deposited into our bank account since they were a bit transient, financially.  Then I would just Venmo them their refunds.  But when you check the IRS tool to find out the status it says they can't determine eligibility.  WTF!  We may just give our funds to them if they need it, at least until we figure out if they are getting a check or not.  Ridiculous.  If it gets straightened out my next plan for that money would be to donate to the Food Bank and my favorite shelter that has a pet food bank.

Moving on. . .my veggie and herb starts are doing well.


 


My outdoor early spring veggies and herbs are taking off. The swiss chard, spinach, kale and arugula I planted last fall and kept a row cover on them through the winter.  The peas, radishes, beets, lettuce and peas were all planted mid-March and are progressing nicely.  Well.  That's all I have for today.  Life is stressful and boring all at the same time.  Thank God for plants, dirt, sun and rain.
