I’ve been doing a swell job of blogging less. And I’m pretty surprised about that because generally, eight times out of ten, when I decide to do something different, I don’t follow thru.
Anyhow, I’m blogging today because I have things to be excited about. Unfortunately I’m not allowed to go into reason number one. But, eight times out of ten I will go ahead and go into things I’m not supposed to. Therefore, I’ll go ahead and say it: I’m looking forward to Wednesday thru Sunday. There. I said it. For those of you who know what’s going on this week (which, granted, aren’t many because Coie goes beet red and cringes when I start alluding to it) you can snicker and wink wink along with me. But I shan’t name any names, nor shall I post any pictures, nor shall I say anything more about it. Except this… I am glad that there are godly families raising up godly children who grow into very neat-o adults for our adult children to get to know better. Isn’t that right, MammyPie?
Ok, the second thing I’m excited about is that I won a contest – yes, me! And I actually won something that I want. Now how’s that for good news? Thanks, Chickadee for hosting such a nifty contest, and thanks, Katrina, for such a great gift!
I’m also excited because three of our goats have had little babies. Poor Daisy, after being forced to take a kid that wasn’t hers, she had her own little sweetie a day later. And then on Sunday Willow had two more. All four babies are pure white. Emmiko also discovered a mama-hen who hatched nine of her own little fluffy yellow chickies. It is spring at the Ig Farm.
Reason #3 to be excited… Emmiko got her tonsils out and I have about six months worth of ice cream treats to share with her. She’s a weird kid. All she has wanted to eat is chocolate malt shakes and Chicken McNuggets.
#4 Me and Coie are leaving for OH in a month. I am so excited about all the friends we’re going to be able to meet up with. Our pals from Home School Enrichment are planning to be there and we’re looking forward to hanging out with them again. We’re also all set to party with Julie Park, Spunkarella, Marshie-mellow, the Heart of the Matter girls, Maggie the Magnificent and Kim Wolf just to name a few. And even my profound friend is making plans to drive up. I cannot WAIT! And it all happens on my birthday weekend. How’s that for marvy?
#5 My entirely excellent son, Bo, is turning 12 in a week. This boy is so marvelous that he defies description. I am one lucky momsie.
Lastly, here’s a video that made me laugh. You have to admit, even if you’re a Dem… this is funny:
