Three Stressful Things
sat 21 may 2016

#1... Day job has become very stressful and frustrating and no end in sight for that mess. Not anything I can do about it, that's just how it is for now.

#2... I quit sending out monthly postcards to my VIP list a couple months ago. I am sad about not doing it any more, but I am ambivalent about going back to my mailings.

#3... But the major stress is about our plot at the community garden... This may be our last year there.

My partner and I are not real gardeners, no matter how much we pretend. And neither one of us belongs in a place with strict rules. But when I found out that they are probably going to kick us out of the community garden at the end of the year, it's like they ripped out my heart and stomped on it.

  So anyway, I am doing all I know to lower the stress levels in my head: Writing in my journal, Playing with the piggies, Meditating, attempting to get extra sleep, and thinking about some art projects.

And when I kill weeds in our garden plot, I try to imagine my life without a place to garden. Maybe I could go out hiking every weekend. I guess we could buy Sun Gold cherry tomatoes and Lemon cucumbers at the saturday Farmer's Market. but how depressing.

So I am going to try to follow their stupid rules as best I can. And maybe they will let us stay.
