Random Rural Crap

Have you ever felt that you were barely holding your head above water?
Have you ever felt like you could drown in overwhelming stress/exhaustion/sadness?
Just wondering.

I am gasping for air.
Trying to find a deep breath.

Holy Mother, that is some symbolic crap, isn't it?
Excuse me while I vomit.....and drown my emotions in candy.


Jersey the dog is fitting in nicely. He poops alot, pees alot and is quite possibly the cutest little creature I have ever seen.
He is kinda cramping my style though. The potty training thing has just confirmed my decision to never have another baby.
Thank you Jersey.

The cats hate him. But enjoy eating his food.

The view from our front window.
It is harvest here in our farming community and the many workers have been out from sunrise to sunset every day.

The view from our back window.
Fall rocks.

The boys both won awards for showing respect towards their peers/environment/teachers at school. Then they come home and curse like sailors.
And write apology notes when they lose privileges.
Which is great, because I can save them to show at their future weddings.

I hear you on the potty training on the dog- when we did it, it was a nightmare. Thank the Lord for the crate but the whole experience has kept me from adding to how many animals we have.

Vikki -- I know Jersey is a smart pup and it shouldn't take much time to train him. We've even trained our dogs to touch a pair of jingle bells on the doorknob with their noses to let us know they want out. You can do it! Just be consistent. He's adorable. :)
