I DELETED MY BLOG BY MISTAKE!! I had set up another Google account since I could not leave comments on some sites and I had found out that I am a no-reply comment blogger. When that didn't help I went back and deleted the new account and low and behold it deleted my blog and my original account!! My stomach dropped and I literally was sick. Then the tears started..lol I know I know its just a blog.
However, when I got sick I realized how horrible some people are. I would try and talk to "friends" about my garden and they would give me the whole well if you are well enough to have a garden then you aren't that sick. I honestly wish with all my heart that was true, but it is not. So I just never talked about my hobbies with anyone besides my parents, family and of course the hubby. After seeing countless friends posting about their hobbies and gardens on facebook I felt horrible that I couldn't do that too, so I thought I might start a blog.
I have to say it is one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I didn't start the blog so people other than myself would read it, but It does make me immensely happy that people do. I have found a whole community of smart, caring and funny people. It is nice to not feel so alone anymore. Its nice to be able to be proud of my accomplishments. It is nice to not be so afraid.
Oh I don't know maybe people will read this and think the same thing about me as the people at work and that is fine. I am sure there are millions of healthy people out there that cannot garden. I'm a not a great gardener by any means. I am not out there early in the morning tending my plants, sometimes I forget to water and most of the weeds are 4 feet tall. I have only been gardening for 4 years and I don't know 98% of what most gardeners know. But I try and if it is the one little thing that I can have some control over in my life than I'll take what I can get. Plus its really quite easy to garden. Plant seeds in soil, water, watch things grow, harvest...lol
Sorry about the rant. I just didn't realize how much this blog meant to me till I thought I lost it. I also just wanted to thank everyone for being so nice.
Long story short....The amazing people at Google had it back up with in minutes of my tear stained e-mail otherwise this post wouldn't be here...lol
