Welcome Larry!



Kurt did great on his Histology test! And I slept until 2pm. I know that comes as a surprise to those who have known me for a long time- you're probably thinking, "Helena? Sleep all day? That doesn't sound like her AT ALL."

Once I was up and showered, we went to Ikea and got a plant! I named him Larry. Kurt hates that name, but until he comes up with something better, Larry it is. He is a Majestic Palm. We got him special palm potting soil, and rocks to go on the bottom, for drainage (After we got home, we noticed that Larry didn't come with any instructions. So I looked it up online). He is pretty spoiled.

We also got light bulbs. And when I was scooting behind our Ikea chair to put one in our lamp, I got a splinter in my butt! Through my jeans!!! It hurt like a mother. It went into my skin like a half an inch, and bled all over the place! It was pretty funny (And pretty painful). When Kurt was helping me with the band-aid, he was all, "You should take a picture and blog about this!" Hahaha, I know you are all disappointed I didn't post a picture of my butt on here! I wish I had taken a picture of me walking around Lowes, where we went to get the soil. I spent the whole time clutching my sore behind! I didn't even realize I was doing that until we were at the checkout, and I noticed someone giving me a funny look. Oops.

Congratulations about getting Larry! I am excited to see how long he lives...

By the way, I think Larry is the perfect plant name!

Also your apartment looks really cute in this picture, nice job!

So Helena! I love your blog! I just found it and its absolutely awesome! I have to say that I wish you the best of luck with Larry because my palm plant died shortly after I bought it. But don't worry. I still keep it around and admire its brown dead leaves. I've tried to revive it so many times. Either I'm cursed at killing plants. Maybe you have some suggestions.

I have found that for people with a black thumb (such as myself) kind of FORGET about the plant it does better than if I remember to water it all the time. Strange, but true. Maybe my plants are just afraid of my attention or something....
