How early is TOO early to go to bed?

 This sounds completely crazy, but I think I'm going to go to bed now. It's only 7:00, but I'm super tired (I haven't been sleeping lately) and I took an anxiety med earlier, which always makes me tired. I've been feeling so much pressure lately (hence the anxiety).

Jerry has a three day weekend, so we are going to try to get as much done as possible around the house. We need to finish the porch, pull up all the grass that was next to the landscaping, build Noah's desk, *possibly* pull out the Asian pear tree in the front yard (I've had it for like six years and have never gotten fruit, so I give up), level out all of the dirt to prep for new landscaping, and several other things. It's going to be a LOT.

Is this even an Asian pear tree?

I looked it up before and it looks like one, but I ain't never seen an Asian pear on that tree in six years. Our apple tree (on the other side of the yard) has only gotten a few apples that get eaten by birds before we can even pick them. I've always wanted a fruit tree, and an Asian pear tree would be my DREAM. But I just feel like it's not meant to be.

Remember this funny story with my dad?! Hahaha!

But anyway, I did great on Day 3 of Cookies Fall Challenge, so I'm happy with that!


  1. Don’t pull your tree! It’s still a teenager. Give it more time. Does it blossom at all? It may need another pear tree nearby to pollinate. Possibly some judicious pruning.

  2. It's never too early for sleep in my opinion. I would read or watch TV in bed and sleep when sleepy. Hope it all goes well.

  3. I wonder if you need a crabapple tree or some other pollenating tree that will help the pear tree and apple tree produce fruit. We were told we needed one or two other sources for pollination to make sure our apple trees produced.

  4. Good luck on all your weekend projects! I go to bed at 8:30 every night so I would never judge someone for going to bed early! Haha. I wish I could help on the Asian pear tree but I know absolutely nothing about plants. But its a pretty tree!

  5. I have a black thumb and no experience. . .but I think your Asian Pear tree might need a mate:

  6. There is an amazing free app called Seek that can help you--you either take a picture or just hover over the leaves of the plant (or critter!) you want to identify and it tells you what it is! I found out I have hemp (!) growing in my hard...and poison ivy. :-/


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
