Today I am off work!! Whoo hooooo!! I then thought what a great day to blog. Yet I couldn’t really think of anything to blog about. I then proceeded to google, “what to blog about”. To my amazement, there are blogs on what to blog about. My favorite title was, “make your blog sizzle”. I opted to not view that site. I decided to forgo the ideas from dear ole google and just write about what is going on in the Norris household.
Well today started with a bang as I tried to use Scott’s weed and feed on the back yard. I had the perfect set up. I had the little green cart thingy that spreads the weed and feed evenly over the yard. I had 2 bags of weed and feed and was ready to go. I decided to mow the yard first and the spread the seed. After mowing I read the instructions and it says to never mow prior to spreading the weed and feed. Oh well, I’m putting this stuff down today like it or not Scott. I try to open the bag and the bag explodes leaving little left in the bag and lots on the ground. Let’s just say that spot should have no weeds and abundant grass if the grass feed really works! I then open the second bag, less eventful as the first, and cover the remainder of the yard. I then water the yard. Then read remaining instructions and it states to not water the yard after spreading the feed. Ahh, I’ve violated 2 rules according to Scott. Let’s hope this turns out o.k.
I was then thinking, why do I need to “feed” my grass. Shouldn’t it just be happy it gets watered frequently, that we don’t have any dogs to leave ‘surprises” on the grass and mow it regularly. Let’s face it, this grass is more high maintaince than I am.
My grandmother, Nana, has a great theory towards her plants and grass. She refuses to water her plants. She states, and I quote, “it makes them weak”. I think Nana is onto something! If the plants never get watered they become strong or die. She is weeding the weak ones out and the strong ones survive. Believe it or not she can grow any flower, anytime of year, anywhere. All because she gives her plants tough love. No watering for those flower, no sir’ee.
Brad is working today. He has an interview with the Rad. Tech program at UMC tomorrow! I am so excited for him. He has a business degree from La Tech and is looking for a change of pace. He has really put his career on hold for me and I am so thankful he is finally pursuing his career. He won’t tell anyone this, but I will. Brad is amazing. He has totally put me first thus far in our marriage. He applied to rad. Tech school last spring and got accepted into Delgado in New Orleans. That was the same time I found out that we would be moving to Jackson, MS for my residency. Did he pout, complain or blame me once? Not for one second. He was thrilled for me and got ready for the move to Jackson. Now it is time for Brad. I just hope I can be as supportive and understanding as he has been for me. So Gooo Brad, I’m proud of you and know you will knock their socks off tomorrow!
