Still maintaining at once-a-decade
My back is messed up. Gardening sucks. Actually, I love it, but my back does NOT. It was so grounding to see Nese this week. She flew out for her gradmother's funeral, and I got to spend a few hours with her. Thursday was Grrrls Night and I got drunk at Akroteri, which seemed novel, although it wasn't. I just haven't done that for so long... but now that I work there and had previously spent 4 years of my life hanging out there... so, a bit novel and a bit 'meh.' The next day, I was hungover, which I loathe being-- and not just because you feel horrible, but for me it's more like I can't do all the stuff I want to. So I attacked the yard anyway and made lots of progress. I weeded4'x8' patch of THICK, CONTENTIOUS BINDWEED and it took me 6 hours. And now my back is all monkeyed-up. There is something I did wrong... go to work that night? Go to work today? Started bartending again (all the half-leanover positions have screwed me up before, but this bar isn't that bad). There has got to be a better way to get rid of these plants, organically. Ideas?
