Things to do when you’re finally not sick

Well,I’m finally not sick. Yay!

So today the Wee Little Miss and I ran some errands. One of these errands included picking up goat feed.

Upon arriving home, I went into auto-pilot mode and backed the car up toward the gate to the pasture, like I always do, to unload the 100 lbs. of feed with minimal effort.

Unfortunately, in my auto-pilot haze, I neglected to think about the fact that we have gotten over 8 inches of rain this week. Needless to say, it. Is. MUDDY!

The mud actually worked out pretty well in keeping with my annual tradition of getting the car stuck in the mud. I’m a few months behind on the annual stuck-in-the-mud-ness, so thankfully, I can consider myself caught up on that front.

The Wee Little Miss, in her teenaged know-it-all-ness, is not amused.

So now I’m sat here, waiting for the Hubbster to get home and pull the vehicle out of the mud.

And THAT, my friends, is what you do when you’re not sick.


On the Road

Things that happened yesterday:

I drove nineteen hours.

Saw several towns called Mount Vernon (where there was no mount to be seen) and a lot of corn (so much corn!)

Had a bug stow away with me in the car all the way to St. Loius

 (I named him Studly Dudley). I am a little bit concerned that I named a bug just during that short amount of time. I’m pretty sure that makes me the person who would find mice and cockroaches in prison and immediately name them and declare that they are my friends.


Ten more hours to go til Colorado Springs.
