Oops, I'm here.

Whoa!  Where did the month go?  I'll tell you where I've been....in the yard.  Every. Single. Day.  Until past dark.  But I'll tell you what...we've made some good progress.  I'll get pics up soon.  And I'll tell you what else....working your you-know-what off in the yard, is good for your you-know-what.  Those last few pesky pounds have melted off the past couple of weeks.

The May Challenge has been going really well, despite not having any time to blog about it.  I have a pile of receipts next to me that I am going to tally up in a minute and add to my sidebar.  I'm thinking I'm under $400 spent on food for the month, and we only have a little over a week left.  Shouldn't be a problem.

As of today we are officially on summer break.  Emma worked so hard and finished her last second-grade book yesterday.  Biniam will be done with 11th grade on Friday, and then we will all celebrate the official start of our summer.

Noah is going through a phase where he is destructive and slow to obey.  The phase has been going on for three years, so it's due to end any day now.  I write this so that years from now, when Noah is a little angel, I will look back and remember that it wasn't always like that.  Speaking victory.

My sweet hubby just emailed me and asked me out on a date.  Date?  What's that?  Do I have to shower?

Yesterday I played in poop.  Horse poop, to be exact.  I guess if you think about it, I have my hands in poop every day.  Moving on....we got a load of poop from our neighbor's pasture.  Have I mentioned how much I love living out here?  I had a smile on my face the whole time I was working our neighbor's horse poop into our garden.

I guess some of you probably call it manure.  Whatever, snobs.

Off to tally up those receipts now.
