I won't bore you with too many details, but the basics are as follows.
- I am an Air Force brat who grew up on the east coast and went on to serve 6 years on active duty with the same branch, followed by 3-and-a-half years in the reserves. I'm trying to motivate myself to get back into shape so that I can go back to active duty; I never should have left.
- I live with the love of my life...let's call him Fordski...who is himself an active duty member of the Air Force for the past 6 years. He is my number one guinea pig for my recent kitchen shenanigans, and as far as I can tell, he enjoys every minute of it.
- I am unemployed at the moment, and getting ready to start a part-time job. It sucks not having money, so I try to cut corners and save us some cash where I can. For example, I made laundry detergent yesterday, rather than going to the store for some expensive pods. This is why I'm only semi organic; going full organic can, unfortunately, be pricey, so I compromise.
- We have animals.
- I have a garden. It's my first garden! And it's out of control. It's a 4' x 8' plot, and we could have planned it a bit better, but otherwise I have no complaints. I just wish I'd known how much room pumpkin and watermelon plants require...because WHOA. I'll dedicate a separate post to my gardening shenanigans.
