Unfortunately I’ve never been an organized person. I think it would be a great thing to be organized and I’ve given it a shot but I don’t have staying power. It’s one of my weaknesses. I go gung ho in the start and then dwindle off…my husband is thankfully much more organized then me..so when he’s home everything is so nice and you can find things and there are no worries. When he’s gone we wing it…if we are really desperate we call him and ask him where things are…Thomas has wanted to start wearing his dad’s clothing…he feels he’s big enough now…(probably a couple feet to short but….I won’t be the one to bring him down) So he’s been calling his dad asking where this is and where is that…
I’ve been alone with Thomas this weekend and I can’t say I’ve gotten a lot done. He’s not exactly the best kid about helping out. We’ve butt heads a couple times because I’ve asked for help and get that annoying deep sigh from him. With five dogs and a kid who doesn’t want to help much it’s been a somewhat difficult weekend then usual. But we’ve managed two dog shows which went ok, no big successes. Birdy was 3rd best female and Nanna got only an excellent each day. Below is a photo of Nanna and I in the ring..I HATE being in the show ring but am figuring I just need someone to show me how to show and I might be more comfortable with it.
Sometimes when I speak with my kids I forget they are kids and I just say what I am thinking without thinking how old my public is…well yesterday on the way home from the show I was noticing the size of Thomas’s feet- they are GIGANTIC. I told him it will be nice when the rest of his body catches up with his feet. Then I said..”you know, girls say that you can tell the size of a guy’s you-know-what- by the size of his feet” to which Thomas laughed and laughed…I said, “so are you packing a size 40 in those pants Thomas??” and he started laughing even more and then got real serious and said, “heeeeey, 42!” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I started laughing til I almost cried and he was laughing along with me and then he started making other jokes about shoe sizes..so I realized he didn’t have a clue what he just said or what I was saying too him…which is great considering I shouldn’t have said it in the first place…but his answer was just hillarious…such a guy!!! I know, I’m a weird mother…the things that come out of my mouth sometimes you have to wonder how the heck my kids are turning out as good as they are…but exchanges like the one above..are hillarious for many reasons and also a nice confirmation that my baby isn’t growing up quicker then I’d like…even though he wants me to think so.
I have a lot of work to do in my gardens…the snow blowing has also blown the rocks in our driveway up into the gardens and yard…so there is probably several tons of rocks to be removed…on such a large property you can imagine how much I’m looking forward to that job…which is probably why I didn’t find time for it this past weekend…maybe next weekend??
I’ll close now and promise a more exciting and regularly updated blog to follow in the future…have a super day folks!!!
