What Am I doing?
This last week was a short one, but a good one. We went to the county fair with our little guy to share with him the joy of being a redneck for a day. We saw all the animals and even had him pet a baby pig! We stuffed ourselves full of onions rings, burgers and ice cream and stared at the millions of hot tubs that we can’t buy. Overall, I would say it was a success!
Yard work has ceased for the next few weeks. If you thought I was just taking a few days to relax and sleep a bit, YOU WERE WRONG! We’re taking the next few weekends to help my mother-in-law re-paint and re-roof her house. No one in the world is more deserving and we are extremely grateful for the chance to help her out!
Also, my sister is awesome and made me a keychain…uhh…thingy for my website. I also have 2 identical bumper stickers for my cars. We might give one away, I’ll let you know soon. For now, here’s a pic of my awesome iHB swag:
No Carnivals again this week. I need to get on this!
