This and That

You know those days that you are a crazy lady, yelling at your kids, overwhelmed by laundry, dust and piles, you've been to the grocery store but somehow don't have anything to eat, flipping out on your dog, husband and feel like ripping your hair out?


That's me.

Ugh. I hate that feeling. I haven't been much fun to be around lately. I realize that. My poor husband is afraid of me I think. :) Not really....but you know what I mean.

It's a terrible way to be but sometimes I think I just have to snap to get myself back on track.

I've snapped.

And today, I'm back on track.

Blech....good to get that out. Ok...now onto some nicer things in life.

We have been so busy lately.
Here is a glance into what has been going on around here the past week.

A local girl scout troop visited the farm.

 Lilly is such a sweet girl and let all the scouts pet her.
 Chase stomping through the field.

Spinning demonstration for the girls.

Saturday morning beach sweep with Garrett's cub scout den.
It was a beautiful morning and a perfect way to start our busy weekend.

 The waves were full of surfers bobbing around.

  Dalton was elected to student council at his school. 
One of his duties was to help out at our school craft fair.

Football season is OVER. Phew. We made it. What an exhausting sport...and I'm just sitting on the sidelines!!!!! My boy was DONE with practice. This picture was taken right after his last game.
The boys played their hearts out and won the last game. Nice way to end a season.
We're blessed with an amazing head coach and I'm going to miss seeing all my mom buddies at the fields every night.

 Fall has arrived. I love the crisp air and pretty colors.
I finally finished my book, Cutting For Stone.
Wow. What a book. I don't know why it took me so long to finish.
Oh yeah...maybe all that stuff I complained about in the beginning of this post!

 My kids begged me to get some Halloween decorations. This guy hangs outside and scares the heck out of me every night. I keep thinking a person is outside.

And this guy has a new favorite chair. This little rocking chair was mine as a girl. Uncle Mayo made it for me and now Chase loves it. It warms my heart to see my kids still enjoying Uncle Mayo's handiwork. 

I feel better already. 

Meeting a friend for coffee this morning and I hope to get more knitting done.

Have a good one :)



  1. We must be operating on the same wavelength because I am feeling just like you in those first few paragraphs. It's awful! I hope it passes soon and glad to hear you are back on track!

  2. Welcome back to a more peaceful state of mind. My hubs has been in your part of the country for a week enjoying beautiful weather and great music.

    You are one busy lady, and it's hard to keep your equilibrium all the time.
