Thee Farm Wife

Saturday, August 14, 2010

Sitting in a hotel - eating Taco Bell Nachos Supreme - KFC chocolate parfait and watching Transformers 2 - redneck vacation - we came to Osceola to pick Jaima up - she has been in Arkansas with Grammy and Papa all week - I forgot how much this girl can TALK! We swam in the hotel pool for awhile and will try to sleep in past 7 tomorrow haha then we will breakfast at the casino buffet - and head home- I wanted to go to the zoo or Living History Farms but the Farmer can't be away from his cows that long - so no time to visit our dear relatives in DM either - I will just have to drive myself down next time!

one more thing...

tomorrow i will post an awesome recipe for Peach Parfait - that's "parfay" for you non-frenchies!
Oh my goodness, I think my blog is sooo boring compared to the ones I've read today - I used to read this blog when she first started The Pioneer Woman- and John Deere Mom reminded me of the blog today in her post. I originally started reading PW's blog back in the day when I was a frustrated-I have no idea what I'm doing - farmwife. She sure is AWESOME! Calls her husband Marlboro Man - I call mine Cooter - you know from the Dukes of Hazzard? She has a big ranch and horses and talks about manure and castrating calves. I have a big farm and lots of bulls**t and manure and castrate calves also. See, we have a lot in common. Only she has an amazing blog - she wrote a book and got to be on the Today Show - just because she's a farmer's wife! Heck, I can do that! Me and John Deere Mom are going to wear our JCP outfits and joo-ler-rey and impress more young women with our country knowledge - yeee ha!

Trying a new way to blog…

Windows live writer…we’ll see if it increases my blog rate :)

i only have a second to type because the girls just pulled in the yard with Papa! Cody shows steer and heifer for the last time tomorrow - my hand is healing - but it hurts ALOT - i have very limited range of motion - the good news is most of the feeling is back in my hand and thumb - today, i did too much and right now fingers are tingling - so off to bed i go...NOT - still have to recap days with my princesses and give them baths!
