Crappy Week

This last week hasn't gone so well.

My father had 100 percent blockage in one artery, 95 in another and a heart attack while he was at the ER. Thank God he was already at the hospital! He's out and recouperating now. He already had a quadruple bypass quite a few years ago. ~sigh~ He really needs to take better care of himself!

To top it off, my husband found out his plant will be closing down come summer.
Where the hell is he going to find another job? Mine went bye-bye years ago and there aren't any to be had.
When they walk out of there for the last time, he'll be less than a month away from 15 years at that place. Ugh!

I think my Uncle's farm is going to go under. They've been trying to keep it afloat for quite a while, but with busted machinery, price of fert and seed, vet bills...blah, blah, blah. When are our reps going to start helping out the Ag industry in this state? I've forgotten how many farms they said have gone out in the last 2 years, but it was pretty close to hitting half of what the high was at one point, if I recall correctly. I'm too exhausted to look it up right now.

With everything that's been going on, I was late getting my toms in. The way I tend to push plants, maybe that's a good thing. We'll see. The bright spot - summer is definitely coming.

Like I keep saying, "It has got to get better, right?"
