Bad day gone good...

Early in the day I had a customer come in. He went on and on about how I am not my mother. I do not have her beautiful smile. I do not have her great personality. I don't even look like her, unlike my sister. He really did go on and on about how much NOT like her I am and about how he hoped that I would be able to keep the store going.

Needless to say, this was a less than stellar start to my day. Add in PMS, deadlines and decisions being made, and my day, I thought, was just shot to shit.

Then, when going to pick up the kids, I have teachers I don't know coming up to me and telling me to check Moosie's bookbag. - Honestly, I never know what I'll find.

My day got much better. Much more "leaky" as I call it, but much better.

Welcome to my head...

Things that go through my head as I drive to and from work/school/home each day...

Oh shit, what would I do if a bird flew in through the windows?

I really need to leave a bit sooner as to not speed quite so fast... Are there ever any troopers/law enforcers on this road anyway?

We really need to pack Mom's house up.

I wonder if an intruder were to attempt intruding, would I just shoot to maim, or kill?

Wonder what kind of flower that is?

I really need to remember to charge my ipod.

Am I really going 70 in a 43 year old car?!

And the list goes on and on...

Here's some blog fodder from recent times. Enjoy.

-- For those of you not in the know (as I was the DAY before this was due) the above character you see is Flat Stanley. Moosie was in charge of dressing him and apparently we were supposed to be taking him with us for the previous few days. This did not happen, so we rushed around, got him clothed and took him sight-seeing. More photos can be found on the Gives Thanks blog.

Not so catchy title...

OK, hang on. It's been a while since an update and truthfully, I really don't feel like doing now. I would say that I'm probably still not much on communication these days. Some days are better than others. This is a better one, so I'd best get busy.

Yes, I really do knit. This is a scarf/headband that I started on this past winter. This is the second one of this pattern that I've made. If you need more info on it, let me know.

Yes, we still have horses. I was able to get this shot the other day as the two horses were really cutting up - running, bucking and generally enjoying the great weather.

The kids did great at the local science fair (Moosie got 1st & Rokimus got 2nd) sending us on to the regional fair. Moosie again won first in her age group and we have done our best to tell Rokimus that it's great he made it this far on the first science fair attempt!

Spring has sprung here in the south. All the lovely flowers and trees blooming out in glorious colors. All that lovely, snot-forming pollen just coating the earth like a gently laid blanket warming our souls with sneezes, watery eyes and sinus infections.

Last, but not least, racing season has started. Kind of. If we can keep drive shafts, bell-housings and the like from tearing up. Rokimus starts racing this weekend, weather permitting.

Take care - Me
