Back in the real world

It turned out that Steve had read the dates wrong for the Pinal County Fair. It was last month. Oh, well. The Pima County Fair is going on until Sunday, so we'll attend that.

Driving home today, I was thinking about how we had such high hopes for gardening and raising chickens and so on here. Instead, I'm working five days a week downtown and driving 45 minutes each way to work. I feel kind of like a rural failure, because while I'm glad to be succeeding professionally, that's not what I moved out here for.

The most I can do is keep track of the seasons. The temperature is dropping into the mid-70s tomorrow, and saguaro flower season is coming soon! All the saguaros, including the Old Man outside, are putting out green buds, so they will all be wearing white flower crowns before long.

Work has switched into stress mode, with a nasty trial on the horizon for my attorney. I feel like I did something wrong and it's my fault, but I know intellectually that's not the case. I just have to keep my cool and do what's needed.
