Postpartum

15 Aug

It has been very strange not having to check up on the bees everyday. In some ways it has been a bit of a relief for me. I recently quit my job to take a new one in a different industry. It has been very demanding so far and has definitely limited my capacity to think about many things outside of working, eating (which I do too much of), and sleeping (which I don’t do enough). I’m also in the middle of taking a macroeconomics class as part of the MBA program I am in. Summer session is very intense because it is a semester’s worth of material crammed into a month.
Meanwhile, Mike and I are still trying to maintain our 30 gallon fish tank and keep our cat Mooch from slipping out the alley door every time we open it. We’ve gone from 12 to 4 fish in the few months we’ve had the tank. The ph and ammonia levels have been way off the charts so Mike cleans it our frequently. While I was doing laundry this week, Mooch followed me out, went upstairs and was found on the deck a half hour later. So while I am very disappointed that I failed as a beekeeping this year, I think it probably wasn’t meant to bee.

    I think Thomas Edison said something like “I didn’t fail 1000 times. I just found a 1000 ways it didn’t work.”. I probably shouldn’t put this in quotes because I don’t remember if that is the exact wording but you get the message. Don’t give up and keep trying. You’ll get there in time. Love you for trying, A.P.
