Garden Update

I've been meaning to post some pictures of the garden for a while, but I've been forgetting. It's growing so much better than it did last year! 

My gourd and squash plants are threatening to take over the entire garden!! I was out there today prying the gourd plants off the bean fence. I haven't done too much to get them off the back fence, but they're growing over the fence in the back too. Tomato plants are getting huge and the cucumbers are trying to eat the peppers. 

All in all it's growing very well. I just need to rethink my placement for next year. I planted according to how they grew last year and since they're growing three times bigger this year I'm just having space issues. That and Zan won't let me increase the garden size. :)

The top picture is of most the garden. Starting from left to right are peas, green beans, onions (they're under the gourds), gourds, squash, cucumber, peppers, carrots and tomatoes. On the other side of the tomatoes are raspberries and strawberries. (You can see the raspberries in the bottom picture.)



My First Trip to the Chiropractor

Well I finally got my butt in to see a chiropractor. I've been meaning to go for a couple years because my back and neck are always sore. When I read that it could help with motion sickness I was hooked and got an appointment. 

I had my second appointment today where we went over my x-rays and plan of treatment. The spine in my lower neck is curving the wrong way and my spine coming out of my hips is coming out crooked. My middle back is suffering because of this. My left side (shoulders, hips) also sit lower than my right. He said it looks kind of like scoliosis.

I had my first adjustment (that was weird) and physical therapy today and will continue for 5 weeks 3 times a week. I'm so excited to not wake up with headaches and not be so sore all the time. I really don't have a reason for all this pain; it's just gotten worse each year. 

It's going to cost a small fortune, but hopefully I'll be feeling great!


New Bed

I finished the bed frame on Tuesday and since we weren't doing anything for the 4th we got the frame attached to the headboard. Only took a few minutes and it was all done. Man it is so sturdy; I did a good job! :)



Happy 4th of July

I hope you're all having a great holiday. Man it's so hot outside!! Zan's out there with the kids in the little pool. I just can't sit out there for too long because it's just too hot for me. I'd rather hang out inside doing whatever. I finished up the bed yesterday and we've got it in our bedroom now! Pictures later.

For now I have pictures from our trip to Sioux Falls. We had a great time! Weather was so nice too. 

Other than that there's really not much going on here. I got all of Ella's school supplies yesterday! It can be hard to find some of the exact things you need so since I saw Target put them out I went and got them. All she needs is a couple notebooks and some shoes for gym class. I'm way ahead of the game on this one. :)

Here are pictures from Sioux Falls: Lots of pictures!!
