Catch Up

Y’all would not believe this last month we’ve had! My oldest got swimmers ear from our pool. That turned into an infection that led to a badly swollen abscess on the outside of his ear. Bless him! It’s been horrible! We actually ended up in the emergency room that landed him in the hospital for 4 nights. Finally after 4 doctors, an ER visit, 3 surgical procedures, & a hospital stay……I THINK we are finally on the mend. He was able to go back to school on Tuesday. The stitches will dissolve on their own, and we have a checkup next week. He’s still on two antibiotics but, over all we have hope in healing.

He’s a tough country boy. He’s rodeoed and worked cattle like a champ. He’s been through a lot this last 30 or so days but, never whined on complained. He kept up with his chores feeding and helping us out when needed. I’m very proud of him. We’ve almost caught up with all the makeup work from missing 5 days of school.

I hope you are all doing great! Take care.


Busy Boy Mom Life

Please, tell me you Momma’s out there have a cabinet that ends up like this?!

I went back to work last year and this is the result. Lol. Today, I finally took the time to make it manageable. Sure, I’ve tried organizing it since going back to work. It’s just those nights unloading the dishwasher after the kids go to bed….. I find myself just tossing stuff in, slamming the cabinet fast before it all falls. Don’t judge me, people. I’m a busy lady. 🤪

Anyways, who’s ready for their kids to go back to school? Not me! (I know, according to Facebook, I’m the only mom not ready.) I’m so not ready. I like having all my ducklings safe and sound at home with me. (See? This is why my cabinets are unorganized! Ha ha!) I love where they go to school. It’s a small town. I know the teachers and all the administrators. Shoot, most of them taught me or my siblings! I just like lazy summers. No schedules or rushing to get to school by 7:50 etc. Oh, and I still have shopping to do! It’s so expensive!!! I did find some really cool Tupperware bento trays for lunchboxes. I’m excited about them. (Except the pink. This boy momma doesn’t need pink. ☺️) I think it’ll make things easier. They will give me more options for my picky eaters. Now….I need to buy the new lunchboxes. 😩🤷‍♀️😂

So, how’s your back to school shopping going for you public school people? I do admire my sister, the homeschool mom, every year around this time. Her kids don’t need a completely new wardrobe, adorable Nike shoes, name brand backpack, and lunch boxes! They can stay in there pjs until noon if they want! Who’s going to know? Their chickens and goats that’s who. Lucky people, I tell you. 🤣

So help me out. What’s your go to lunch ideas for your picky eaters. I need ideas before we conquer back to school next Monday!

Friday!!! Friday!!! Friday!!!

I love the weekends! It’s nice to sleep in. My husband is home so, no alarm clocks. I’m actually laying in bed, thinking of all I need to do, as I type. Lol. I have zero plans as of now. It is tax free weekend so, I need to decide on whether to fight the crowds or not. My children do need things for the dreaded back to school. Is it worth not paying taxes? The tally is still out. ☺️

Thought I’d share some farm pics. I’ve got broody hens hatching chicks left and right still. They are so sweet and adorable. I’m weaning my last two bottle calves. I should have them completely off the bottle before the weekend ends. Our hog pups are adorable and growing so much. I captured a real life dog pile. (My favorite photo!) And….the smartest pup, eating out of his Momma’s bowl instead. Lol

My parents are in Florida so, I’m fish sitting. He’s a beta fish named, Blue. My youngest refused to eat his fish sticks on Monday. He said it might upset “Little Blue”. (Adorable and rotten. I know.) Blue is in my kitchen and quite nosey. You can find him following me, as I go about my chores, or as I sit down for a cup of coffee.

I snapped a picture of three of my herbs. They are really growing! Look how tall the peppermint is! I trimmed it after this photo but, it was really growing.

I hope you all have amazing weekends! Thanks for reading and following! I got my 100 followers notice this week! May God bless you all.
