I was planning on doing a post on the whole moon shuttle thing. I am not so sure what is happening with all of that though. Lawn Kid has a job that he can’t get to and of course he waited to tell me until he was already late on his first day. Le sigh. Teenagers are difficult. And the drama is continuing as I type this.
Well, it looks like it is not going to happen. The two astronauts are already on the ship, but it was called for weather. Wow. The next day it is supposed to happen is May 30th.
Elon Musk had somehow figured out a way to send two men to space on a PRIVATE mission. Is he insane or a genius?
Are you going to watch? When I lived on Saint Simons Island, Georgia, we ustacould see the space shuttles launch and it would always rain afterward. At that time my mother swore that every time a shuttle launched it would rain. She was correct. That has nothing to do with today, but it always rains afterward. So we can pick up this post on Saturday.
Anyway. How are you guys doing? I hate going outside to touch things other people have touched. But I am waiting for something to come in the mail soon. And it was trash day. So I ventured all the way to the sidewalk. lol. Got the mail (just junk) and took the trashcan in. Then since I was in my garden gloves already (because I don’t want to waste my final few latex ones) I decided to brave THAT ONE TOMATO PLANT. I don’t have a well tended garden. SHOCKER! lol. The tomato plant closest to my door is a strange one. I cage all my plants when I plant them. Then I can just ease them in to the crate as they grow.
In Other News Lazy Mabel Is Tryna KILL ME! ( I suspect she is in cahoots with the rats)
Well, Lazy Mabel just wants to lay down during the pandemic. She produces really big tomatoes, but apparently she would rather leave hide them for the hoodrats. Like literal hoodrats so she keeps them covered up. Lazy Mabel just wants to spread out and cover the fruit with her big fat fucking leaves. So I went in an picked what was there to ripen in the window. Whatever is eating them and THEY TAKE RAT LIKE BITES waits for them to be all red and juicy. Anyway. I got some sort of poison ivy or something on my wrist searching for what is underneath all that stuff. The rest of the plants are complying with the cage. More on Lazy Mabel later.
Lawn Kid Update
In other news lots has been going on with Lawn Kid (AKA I am raising a teenager). He was to report to a new job today and has no transportation. He waits until he is already late to tell me this and seems to forget I am on quarantine. The thing is he has no shoes. He has a pair of Tommy Hillfinger prison shower shoes and sneakers with holes. I noticed this last week. So I ordered him shoes that have not arrived. He will be working in a warehouse if he manages to keep this job. He did not ask for shoes but I wish he would have brought it up in conversation because it took me a while to notice. We have gone through this at least three times with him getting a job and no way to get to it. So I had to put my foot down and tell him I am not his chauffeur. At least I think I got rid of the girlfriend so he can’t get her knocked up.
He still shows up asking for something to drink while cutting yards. I finally got some Gatorade for him. Raising a child is expensive! LOL. I told him told he needed his own gmail, his own paypal, his own Uber account and that he is a grown ass man who needs to handle his problems.
FINISH LINE SUCKS!
ALSO DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING ONLINE FROM FINISH LINE. He would have already had fucking shoes but I got an email that just said, “Sorry we cancelled your order.” WTF? Are they going out of business? I Googled and this seems to happen a lot with them. I reordered via Champs… fingers crossed that they are okay but they probably are not as malls are closing left and right.
