Happy Mother's Day and Happy Birthday Hubby

Happy Mother's Day everyone!  I hope ya'll like my mother's day gift.  I've been looking for a special pair of Wellies as the English would say, forever!  I finally found them when we were at the Spring Fling.

Aren't they soooo snazzy!

If it looks like I'm sucking in my belly it's because I am!

 It's also Hubby's birthday.  We had won a 6 foot long sub from Subway.  So we thought we'd use it for this occasion and we invited a few friends. It was great!  I couldn't believe how big it was. It was not only 6 feet long but it was also wide like 2 subs.

This is just a 3 foot section of the sub. It comes in 4 sections.

Things are always changing here. You never know what God is going to chuck at us next.

Well Dave got hurt on the job months ago.  He kept working through the pain but finally couldn't anymore. So the doctor made him stop.  He's on so many pain killers and sleeping pills that it would probably kill an average person.  It's still not stopping the pain completely, but he's living through it, as we all are.  But here lies the problem.  The insurance has not come through, we are being given a hard time through some people, the specialist hasn't made an appoitment yet, we are living on just my salary for the last month and the forseable future.  He can't do anything here on the farm and we can't afford to hire anyone either.  J. and Tomas (our international student) are helping a lot, but they can only do so much.  My hours at work have changed, so I am now working a lot more (which is good in the financial dept, but not the farm and home life).

So we are downsizing. Cindi Lou is sold. She's going to nice home on Wednesday.  Tundra is gone to another home also.  When all is said and done we will be down to one goat and a buck, plus the donkeys. It may take awhile but by next spring (maybe sooner) that is our goal.  Some days I'm so tired that I want to get rid of everything.

So that's how things are here now.  I hope I don't sound to depressing for Mother's day...but blogs are not always about happy things.

Have a Blessed Day.
