Another math equation:
4 nights in a row with not enough sleep + one whole day of hard work = short temper

Well, we got J's room ready for him and got the house cleaned up. Of course it got messy again- but for a good cause. My room is still kind of a wreck although I have seen it worse. Today I will finish the laundry, rearrange the dining room, straighten the whole house, take m to school, make and cleanup dinner and put the kids down early and the relax! Here is a pic of the table grandpa made that m and I painted this am.

Here is the story: I always get crazy craft ideas and then think I can do them for some reason. I never turn out to be as crafty as I'd like. However, I think this one turned out to be pretty cute. It is a gift for a baby shower wrapped in a formula can. I opted for no lid.

They used their manners:

They had great food:

Even the babies got to play and have fun:

Here is my story: our neighbors are out of town. They asked me to take care of things while they are on holiday. No big deal, right? Ha ha. Pumpkin the goat got her head stuck in the fence on Sunday. So we cut the fence and got her out. I found a pipe to stick on her horns to keep her from doing it again but she kept trying to butt me so I gave up and hoped she would not be so stupid as to do it again. Wrong. She is stupid. Monday I go over to check on her and she is stuck. So this time I got smart and duct taped the pipe to her head before I cut the fence. But the misery of the goat adventures is not over. Today I went to feed them and there was a live mouse in the feed. Ack! I'm no country girl but I couldn't leave it in there so I was tough and scooped it up in the bucket and threw it out.  Ack! Oh yeah, I forgot to mention how a horse fly bit me on a left cheek-i won't tell you which one...  But wait! There's more! Somehow in all of that I got poison ivy. I truly can't remember the last time I got poison ivy. Ugh: it itches and I'm going to be horrified if the kids get it from me. That would be miserable for them. At least all the plants and animals are still alive!

On a random side note, I figured out why I love reading people's blogs so much: I'm nosy! Truly I love knowing what people do and how they live. I do. I'm mrs. Lynde, the busy body who watches out the window to see what the neighbors are up to!
