How does my garden grow?

The garden is coming along nicely.  We are having a heatwave and the plants require twice daily waterings.  We don't have a hose, everything is done by hand.  Here are some pictures of the progress.  First picture are our onion shoots, then radish, then our broccoli and cabbage, someone mislabeled the broccoli and we got two broccoli plants and too much cabbage!  The next picture is the main garden with tomatoes.  Or maybe its the other way around with the pics anyhow, yes lots of weeds too!

The week from hell

Anyone that follows me on facebook knows what a week I've had.  I couldn't of made up all this stuff if I wanted to.  My Uncle Jack died on Sunday.  Sunday evening Sarah was messing around with her insulin pump and gave herself a huge overdose of insulin.  She was in the hospital until Tuesday.  On Wednesday I found her insulin pump was missing from her kit.  We searched the house for two days and never found it, so I have assumed it was stolen.  Sarah also got sick at school from high sugar after the principal wouldn't let me give her her Lantus shot at the right time because she was in state testing.  On Thursday, I found out the school nurse turned me in to Child Protective again because of Sarah's overdose and the fact that I didn't "insist" on Sarah being pulled from class and testing to get her shot, even though I was coming back in at lunch to administer it.  I was shocked that even though Albany Med didn't feel I needed to be reported to CPS that Bitch at the school did, and I was the one who told her what happened.  So I ended up calling the principal and complained about her and the way she has been treating me.
Thursday night my brother called just as I went to bed and told me my mother had been airlifted to Cabrini hospital in Alexandria, LA for high blood sugars and vomiting.  Turns out she may have had a mild heart attack too.  She is recovering and hopefully will be out of the critical care unit soon.  I hope I can talk to her at least tomorrow on Mother's Day. 
So that was my week from Hell..
