To conclude my "cultivating" profession for April I just donated the amount that Operation Smile says will cover a cleft palate surgery. And even with my sore back, I was able to rally the troops and get our vegetable garden planted yesterday. It was sunny after a week of rain and COLD. It worked pretty slick: we split the kids into pairs and every 10 minutes the timer would go off and they would swap from jumping on the trampoline to working in the garden. They got so involved in gardening that a couple gave up their trampoline time to keep at the task they were on. So everything is in except for the cucumbers (but the hills are waiting, thanks to the shoveling talents of GG) and the tomato plants. So the gardening actually got done.
As far as cultivating self-discipline, I definitely took some baby steps in the right direction. I even IRONED! I slept in until 7:50 two of the mornings, but I'm going to keep up with my goal of 7:45 and maybe even try 7:30!! one morning. My DH says that all the action is between 7:30 and 7:45. I don't wanna miss the "action"!
So I'm a professional photographer for May. EXCITING! I still haven't taken my new zoom lens on a true test drive so I'm looking forward to doing that! With baseball and soccer starting tomorrow, I should have LOTS of opportunities.
