For those who blog, do you find yourself thinking “oh, I could blog about this…and this…and this” throughout the day? I do that a lot. Especially, for some reason, when I have a bad day. I think it’s because bad days around the farm are usually so ridiculous they’re almost funny. I’d like to think I have a knack for weaving together stories of woe that make you laugh (like the one about the midnight chicken rescue) but those stories are probably only funny if you have the same sense of humor that I do. I must be a little bit twisted.
So here’s a few highlights from today:
10:17 PM (last night): dog whining, likely has diarrhea, I just got to sleep!
2:00 AM: dog again, I said a prayer thanking God for preparing me for children and wrote Brian a note saying do NOT feed Bear, then spent 1/2 hour trying to fall back asleep
4:15 PM: Home from work, found a repeat of the other day’s lamb delivery, aka one stillborn one live, this time they’re very big lambs and the live one has a bent over front ankle that keeps him from getting up on his own
5 PM: I’m crawling around in the lambing pen trying like heck to milk mama while my phone beeps low battery and the FIVE dogs bark loudly as though someone’s pulling in. I crawl out of the pen and check the driveway, no one here. They sound alarm again once I’m back in the pen. I finally call Brian for backup before my battery dies. We get some milk in the lamb and do some other chores.
7 PM: Thinking how good dinner’s going to taste as I turn off the oven and finish cooking the cheese sauce… go to stir in the noodles and realize I didn’t cook any yet!
Let’s hope that’s it for the day! How was yours?
