The goat meets the sheep

Farmboy's family does a big pumpkin patch every year. Complete with pumpkins, gourds, corn mazes, corn tanks, and animals. This weekend we moved the sheep over from FB's brother's place to the pumpkin patch. Elvis the goat already was there, so we just added Tootsie Roll and Charlotte to his space. Elvis got a little territorial, and the sheep thought he was fun to play with. Here's my first attempt at video uploading... we'll see how it goes. I tried to edit the video with my imovie, but I got frustrated. Instead you get the unedited version, please ignore the conversation I finished with Glamorous Newlywed and whatever else I said. I couldn't help but laugh at Elvis acting all tough and big.

Sick at Home

This is the second sick day I've had to take this school year. I don't know if it's moving back from a different climate/environment. Or maybe it's just this year everything seems to be getting passed around. Whatever the reason that I'm getting sick more often is, it stinks! I hate missing work, it messes my kids' schedules up, they don't get the extra help they need, and I have to find people to cover my recess duty. Oh yea, and I really don't enjoy being sick. However, I did enjoy not getting dressed and ready, and watching all the morning shows. What's your take on sick days? Have you noticed an increase? What's your fav/least fav thing about them?

Thank you Cee! Cee was sweet enough to award me with the Kreativ Blogger Award. She has a super fun blog, Curiosity. Go check her out along with two of the cutest puppies ever! The object is to come up with 7 facts about yourself that we probably don't already know.

Here are the exciting rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people may not know.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they've been nominated.

Weird fact #1
I am typically quite the rule follower, but occasionally I get a very strong urge to break some rules. I should say written rules. Like today we were at Silver Dollar City in Branson. While there we saw a sign that said "Don't look in this hole" Of course everyone is going to look just out of sheer curiosity. Instead I didn't look in the hole. Maybe that makes me a crazy rule follower. Back to the original point.... When I see signs like stay off the grass and other signs like that I have the very strong urge to run in the middle of said grass and roll around in it.

Weird fact #2
About 75% of my close friends and family are in education or were at some time. Both Farmboy and I plan on staying in education our entire careers. Every household of my extended family has at least one educator.

Weird fact #3
I would rather watch Gilmore Girls on repeat for the rest of my life than be subjected to any more reality shows that play matchmaker! Yes I know there's a whole bunch of you crazy bachelor/bachelorette watchers that are gasping right now. I'm really NOT a fan.

Weird fact #4
I love to bake, but would rather not have to clean up ever again. OK I don't think that one is so unique, nobody likes to clean up. I really do love to make cookies though. My pumpkin cookies will be coming up shortly... YUM!

Weird fact #5
Never really thought of myself as that great at video games. Then FB wanted to play Lego Indiana Jones on XBox, soo I played along. Who knew I'd like it so much! We got addicted to it there for a little while, then his XBox went on the fritz. Guess we'll have to wait to get it back to see what other video games I can get into now.

Weird fact #6
I tie my shoes differently than every other family member. This always leads to the question... who taught you how to tie your shoes? I honestly don't remember. I would've thought my older brother would have tried to help me learn, or for sure my parents. How I picked up an entirely different technique... I dunno!

Weird fact #7
I grew 2 or 3 inches in college. Usually girls are supposed to stop growing by their sophomore year of high school, but I did not. Now I'm 5'8"

I tag everyone who would like to be Kreativ and share some weird facts with blogworld. If you take the award, comment on here so we know to go check it out.

Labor Day weekend recap

I'm a little behind in my blogging lately, so I'll do a recap of the long weekend. Farmboy went on a weekend outing with the guys in my family. FB, Dad, my brudder, and my uncle all went to Arkansas and canoed 23 miles in 3 days. They're crazy, but hey they had a good time.
While the boys were gone, the girls had lots of fun! Saturday my mother hired a manicurist and a masseuse to come to her house. My mom, my aunt, my sister-in-law, her mother, her friend, and my 2 nieces all got super pampered. I LOVED getting a massage, it's been a very long time! I liked it so much I scheduled another one for the end of this month.
Sunday was just as enjoyable. My best friend from high school and I had lunch then hung out most of the afternoon. I also got to have dinner with a few work friends. Then to top it all off my best friend from high school came back over with another friend for a little slumber party.
Overall it was a great weekend, I even got a couple hours of farmboy time Monday. I picked him up from my parents, after a fun filled day of laundry. Hope your weekend was great as well.
