We made the decision not to put in a garden this year. I'm sad about it, but the reality is, we just don't have the necessary time to devote to it. Compare last year's schedule to this year's:
Jen (last year) - no job, no youth group, at church on Sunday mornings, part-time helping out with farm animals, taking care of our own 3 animals
Jen (this year) - job 9-4 monday thru friday, youth group sunday nights 5-9, youth group tuesday nights 4-9, at the church everyday except (most) Saturdays, part-time helping out with farm animals, taking care of our own 5 animals
Quite a difference, huh?
Now check out Bobby's...
Bobby (last year) - work at WVU June & August 20 hours a week, July's off, no classes, no youth group, at church Sunday mornings
Bobby (this year) - work at WVU June & August 20 hours a week, July's off, 3 summer classes, youth group (see hours under my section, plus more), office hours at church once/twice a week 9-4, studying for ordination, at church several days a week
So I'm sure we could have squeezed in the garden, but when would we have time for blogging, playing guitar hero, reading, watching tv, and responsible things like cleaning?!?
