Rainy Sunday

Rainy Sundays just make me want to curl up with a cup of coffee and snuggle!! But...I had a Marykay event so off I went in this nasty weather. The roads were wet and grey and the sky was grey and the trees even looked grey..gee my car is even grey, Yuck! But of course when I walked into my Mary Kay Training center I was greeted with smiles and laughter...YAY! My director and a guest director were pretending to do surgery on another director. It was quite entertaining! It was like a magic show. I don't know how they pulled that pink phone out of her! So I settled in for an hour or two of girlfriend time and it was warming to the soul! So now I am back home and am fixing to grab a cup of coffee and sit with my boys and watch football..which I am not in the least interrested in, but if they like it, I will use it for snuggle time!! Praise God for snuggling!

This day was far from normal...My husband and I had to take one of our goats to the vet. Apparently one of my fat, clumsy horses stepped on her and she has a broken leg and a nervous system problem so we had to make her a tiny stall and prop her up between two bails of hay. Why do I have goats? Oh yeah someone said that they would eat the weeds and it would be a time saver.....who ever said that doesn't have goats. It cost $40 for a vet to look at her and say "Yep, she can't walk, prop her up and wait, that will be $40, Thanks" Gee, Really? I couldn't tell she couldn't walk when I had to carry her 60 pound butt to the trailer!! Go green with goats...I don't think so. They cost more than a weed eater!

Supper time?

Can they hear me? I feel like a ghost in my house. Dad keeps grabbing the kids and running around! The boys are squealing with delight! Meanwhile I keep stressing louder and louder that supper has been done and now is getting cold. The boys paused long enough to look at it and start laughing and take off again! So do I play bad guy and spoil the fun and make them sit and eat? hmmm It sounds like a herd of elephants running in my house!!! I can only watch and stay out of the way!
Wow, where to start is a good question! I can hear my boys arguing over a garbage truck toy.....I don't remember wanting to be a garbage truck driver when I  was little! Why can't they want to be doctors or something clean!
