Can you miss what you didn't have?

Four months seems like an ample "blogging break" that was a complete accident.
 Happy 2015, Friends! And Happy Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Happy Easter, etc... I've missed a lot of holiday sharing with y'all. But really, what is 4 months time? It's like the blink of an eye in the scheme of life. Also, we went to the Opening Day game for the Indianapolis Indians. They lost, but we had a great time and saw fire works.

Nothing MAJOR has happened. I've switched jobs and now work for a church, which I never ever thought I'd do after getting burned by a particular church camp a few years ago. But, here I am, and I actually do enjoy what I do. It's a combination of all the jobs I've ever been a part of; design, accounting, marketing, logistics, creative writing, and printing. Who knew a church uses the printer so much and so often?

We did find out with the Marine's Career, that we're not going anywhere. He'll retire from this place because they can't find anyone to replace him and his billet assignment, yet  also at the same time REFUSE to promote him. So, how is he ever suppose to be motivated to DO his job the next two years KNOWING that it won't get him anywhere?! To me, it's the first and only time he's been screwed over by the Marine Corps. I guess we can't complain too much. I just hate this particular nightmare he's been thrown into because he's doing a billet assignment for TWO RANKS above his and doing it TOO WELL that they don't want anyone else there. *sigh* He needs encouragement a lot lately. Two more years, two more years!  It's crazy enough that we already have a retirement date!

The garden 2015 isn't planned, nor will it ever be "PLANNED". It's less garden items then the past, but we also have less time to deal with it this summer, too. No more eggplant, nor tomatillos, nor 29 tomato plants all in one space; it was too much.  But we do have strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, onion, garlic, rosemary, lavender, thyme, sage, basil, blue potatoes, cauliflower, broccoli,  and others I can't think of right now. As the frost finally thaws out and stops appearing, the garden will get planted and sorted out. The "old" saying around here is never plant before Mother's Day...well that is in two weeks, I've got time to clean out the garden, de-weed it and amend the soil till then.

Next weekend hits us with a huge entertainment dilemma. It's the May the 4th Be with You weekend, and Marvel Avengers: Age of Ultron Weekend along with the Kentucky Derby. There are so many feels to be had, movies to explore and re-watch, and people to watch alongside.  It'll just have to be an ALL OUT Disney weekend with a few runs thrown in with all the movie watching.
