Yes, start spreading the news! And no, I'm not going to New York. I have been doing things my way, but apparently my way is the wrong way. Oh, Frank Sinatra, where art thou?
Have you ever had one of those days when everybody and his/her brother seems to be criticizing you? Today is one of those days, and it's still only 10:30am, so things are bound to only get worse. Yes, supposedly the amended soil I've been using is no good for vegetables (what?), I have to plant that hazelnut bush TODAY or it will die (it's only been there in a pot for 6 years...), and I most definitely should NOT be planting a fir tree there because it will get too big, messy, etc. Yes, family members, neighbors and even passing municipal maintenance workers are all getting in on the fun and telling me how ridiculously wrong I am doing just about everything, because evidently, folks, this crazy American don't know sh**!
Good thing my husband is keeping his mouth shut.
