I’m the worst blogger ever.

I haven’t updated since February, and it’s almost April!  Oops.

Here are some things that happened this month:

- I became hypothyroid again, which came with some fun depression and fatigue.  My doctor adjusted my medication accordingly.  Right after this happened, Miss Lizzy blogged about the “seasonal thyroid drop” – apparently needing to increase your thyroid meds is common this time of year.  I feel much better now that I’ve added an additional 30mg/day.

- I have been working a lot, which goes against my “take it easy” plan, but I’ve been doing very well.

- I started kickboxing last week with a friend.  Terrifying.  I’m going to continue, but I need to buy my own gloves.  I smelled the smell of the shared class boxing gloves and I will never look at life the same way.

- I started planting!  I’m doing much more research this year, so I won’t be quite so terrible at gardening. I did go a little crazy at Urban Harvest.  Here’s what I have planned:

  • Cherry Tomatoes (Black, Chadwick, Gold Nugget)
  • Roma Tomatoes
  • Beans (Tendergreen, Royalty Purple – THEY’RE PURPLE! PURPLE BEANS!!!)
  • Cucumber (Homemade Pickles, Lemon – it looks like a lemon but tastes like a cucumber!!!)
  • Hot Peppers (Chinese 5 Colour, which I literally only bought because they looked cool and the description said “rare” and I’m a sucker)
  • A bunch of greens, including kale, spinach, and some lettuces
I ALSO bought a bunch of lavender plants from Richters, to see what I can keep alive.
I should have started planting seeds earlier, but here’s what I’ve got so far.  I even bought a lamp (TERTIAL from IKEA, with an OttLite plant bulb).

I hope things turn out this year.
