What's The Heck Is Goin On

In the last 3 1/2 weeks... we've been busy to say the least. Hubby is getting ready for another deployment and with that comes my Honey Dew/Do List.

This is what we've done...

1) Bought 16 tons of sand and Hubby and Daughter #2 have spread it in the round pen where I work the horses.

2) Hubby has went out to breakfast with his church buddies exactly three times.

3) We went to the Grand Ole Opry.

4) We saw Kenny Rogers... Kenny don't look too good. But his voice is still the same.

5) We went to Bass Pro Shop.

6) We spent money at Bass Pro Shop 

7) Hubby bought a pair of Crocs for deployment. Who would have ever guessed?! Color: Jungle Brown.

8.) We had a flood in our home.

9) Exactly one year ago we had another flood in our home and I'm getting a little worried about this annual flood thing.

10) Parts of our house are a mess and discombobulated.

11) I like order, so am seeking help for this disturbance in my life.

12) We ate dinner with the Sheriff of our county last night... he's our friend and we love him.

13) We had 2 tons of mulch delivered. This, I will have the pleasure of spreading because we've ran out of time, again.

14) We had to replace the dishwasher.

15) We found out why our appliances are failing.... too much water pressure.

16) Had pressure gauge installed.

17) Refrigerator is not working right.

18) Had repairman out and he thought he fixed it.

19) Refrigerator working a little better... but not good enough.

20) Dutch our gross shovel licking dog, ate a piece of a lightbulb.

21) I'm not worried about Dutch because he eats all sorts of nasty things and still lives. Once he ate a Decon killed mouse and he just looked like he had a stomach ache for about 50 minutes.

22) Daughter #1 had to have a Root Canal.

23) Daughter #2 got a great job doing what she loves.

24) Dad re-screened the porch where Dutch had bite through acting like he was super dog.

25) Porch took a lot longer than planned, because of the flood.

26) We went to a funeral for a sweet church member.

27) I started teaching Sunday School.

28) We had one Leprechaun siting. (photo below)

 And so the story goes... why does time fly by so fast? And as I get older, it moves faster and faster.

 Celeste being her usual silly self.

 Bet you didn't know that we have free range horses. Out of all the acreage they have to eat.. they like to be up by the house.

 Celeste is wondering how she got so lucky to live here.

Daughter #2 is setting up a cat duel. These two nut heads love to get on the fence and box with each other. 

William our nephew wondered if there had been any Leprechaun sitings... here you go William. I didn't know that we have a Cowboy Leprechaun!

Until Later,

A Poopy Day

If you are reading this blog right now.. that means you're faithful, because I have been so bad at keeping in touch with all of you that I wouldn't be surprised if you've dumped me. But I have a good reason... my Hubby! He's home and we've been busy before his next deployment.

WARNING: The contents of this blog today.. are not beautiful, pretty, proper, fragrant (good), lady like or necessary to share. 

But I'm going to anyways.

Here's what's happened only today....

1) I woke up with my oldest telling me that her kitty can't go poop and that he's in a lot of pain.
2) The Plumber came to check our sewer.
3) I gave the cat something I concocted to help the cat go poop.
4) The cat is 14 years old and I wondered if he was going to live past today. Maybe he's just pooped out and wants to pass on to the other side. 
5) I watched as the Plumber and his son, opened our two sewer lids and saw more poop than I wanted. 
6) The Plumber said that's a lot of poop and grease.... and he called the sewer company to come pump out our sewer.....
7) I said to myself, Self.... didn't his advertisement say that he pumped out sewers and self said, "Yes, he did"
8)  Then plumber man asked for $100.
9)   I looked at Hubby.
10) Hubby didn't look happy. Hubby never looks happy when he is watching his money fly away.
11) I go back in the house to check on kitty and he's not doing well... 
12) So I go and prepare a kitty enema.
13) I try to administer it.
14) Bad news... kitty is blocked.
15) So plumber leaves with $100 in his pocket and we wait for Sewer man.
16) Sewer man is a special person, because I don't think you could pay me to come and take away other peoples poop.
17) He was polite and nice and did his job well.
18) Kitty report is not good, but we are not sharing the kitty news with Dad until he's done with the other poop. 
19) Daddy has a flashlight and is helping sewer man.
20) The dogs decide to lick the poop shovels that have been used.
21) I decide that dogs are the most disgusting creatures on earth.
22) I look out on the pasture and see every horse poop that is laying in the pasture.
23) I then remember that we had a mystery pooper that would leave a present on our driveway every morning.
24) We used the game camera to find out who is was.
25) We only saw small bunny on the camera... there's no way he could have done it.
26) Sewer man leaves with $165, but I feel he deserves a $100 tip.
27) I don't tip him.
28) Because I want him to get his reward in Heaven.
29) Dad looks at Kitty.
30) Kitty goes to Vet with a price on his head (If you know what I mean)
31) More poop at the Vet.
32) More talk about poooop getting out of kitty.
33) Game plan set in place.... laxative, cream, pills and time.
34) Daddy calls to ask if Kitty gets to live.
35) I drive to the store to get Kitty supplies for more enemas.
36) I'm tired of poop.
37) I then end my day... by going down to the barn, shoveling poop and then walking through poop to feed horses and water them.
38) I'm pooped out.

Then End,
Java Girl

PS- Turn in tomorrow where I will tell you about some more stuff.
