I’ve solved the Christmas gift exchange problem

November 30th, 2007 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

We get together on Christmas day every year with Ed’s family and long ago determined that we were all spending too much money of gifts for every single person so we began the Gift Exchange.  Every participant spends $20.00 on a gift and then we draw numbers for the order we’ll proceed in selecting from the pile.  […]

My cow is such a delicate dainty flower …

…. or a retriever.  Just look at her When snapping pictures I noticed a definite pattern – She’s not walking in these pictures, this how she was standing.  And look at little Sparky trying to get water from the handpump. Sparky is almost as big as Moo!

I was the embarrassing obnoxious parent last week

November 27th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Lest there be any doubt in anyone’s mind why my nickname is Loopy, this will finally resolve the issue.  Last Tuesday morning I was at the school at 7:00 am for a parent advisory committee meeting {I KNOW!  How funny is that??} then rushed through chores after arriving home and went on a long ride with Jen.   We […]

We now return to your regularly scheduled programming

And we’re back in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 – Hello there!  Welcome back.  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and gained 10 lbs from all the fantastic food.  I’ve got so much to talk about that I’m literally restraining myself so I can dish it to you in small spoonfuls rather than overwhelm […]

A Thanksgiving break

November 21st, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

I’ve got a cheesecake to make, Ed’s on vacation, and the kids are out of school starting this afternoon so I’m going to take a holiday break to concentrate on the “must do” list.  It’s positively out of control and needs tackled. I’ll be back over the weekend.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Off we go, riding into the wild blue yonder

November 18th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Once Lisa showed me the trick for getting Buck to take his bit, we’ve tacked up fully each day.  Yesterday I got him all around the scary objects and he even walked right next to the guys as they were mixing concrete and using the power saws.  Today we put Ed’s saddle on him and […]

My day began at 4:00am

November 17th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

I have no idea why my eyes suddenly popped open at such an ungodly hour, but I went with it.  After coffee I worked for several hours then prepared for My Damn Brother In Law Nathan to arrive.  The men are setting a foundation or pouring concrete or stacking rebar or just playing in sand […]

I’m am such a clueless wonder. Again.

November 16th, 2007 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Wednesday when I worked Buck he was like picture perfect and I was like a proud mama.  Seriously, you could have videotaped his performance and sold a perfect training how-to – we were that  good.  At one point he was loping around and I thought  I wonder what he’d do if I stopped suddenly and […]

I hate to be a nag

November 15th, 2007 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

Contrary to Ed’s opinion, I really do hate to nag but I don’t think I can let this go any longer.  I’ll have to put a nagging plan in action fairly soon and it will drive the proverbial wedge right down the center of the rock that is my marriage.  Ed will fuss and complain […]

My day was split in two

November 13th, 2007 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

The first half was spent fall cleaning.  Do you do this?  You should.  Don’t even concern yourself with the infamous Spring cleaning because that’s not the time for anything more than a big spruce up.  No, fall cleaning is where you really get down and dirty.  Literally.  All spring, part of summer, and fall you […]
