It's been a full week around here. The living room and dining room carpets are green, and I know this because they're clean, yippeee! Zach's feeling better but James has the nasty bug now and he's so busy in the fields with harvest that he's trying to fight it off or at least live till it rains before he sees the doctor.
There's a LOT of stuff that has to wait for a rainy day or winter time around here.
The Chick is trying to cut back on her passy addiction with help from her Banny and Mommy. This old broad called the passy fairy keeps taking her passies and only lets her have them after a nice, calming, bath when it's time to sleep. On Thursday, Banny was telling me about a conversation she and the Chick had about that bad, ol, fairy.
Chick: I can't find my passies, I laid them right here.
Banny: It's not bed time so the passy fairy must have taken them.
Chick: (sobbing a little) But I just took my eyes off them for a minute, and now they're GONEEEE!
Yesterday Jerri was telling me that the Chick was crying and having a passy craving moment on Friday and she told her she'd need to ask the passy fairy where it was. I guess Jillian decided she'd had enough of that ol fairy being mean to her big sister so she went and found a passy and gave it to the Chick. That's love huh?
Jerri had a coed softball tournament yesterday down in Elaine so I dropped Zach off at the farm on the way and drove down to watch her play. Banny, the Chick, and Jillian also came and we really had a good time even though it was plenty hot and dusty down there. Jerri's team ended up in second place and I thought that was most excellent because she had only played with one other girl on the team before and didn't even know the others before game time.
A Basset hound was wandering around at the ball park all day so Jerri asked someone who the pup belonged to. No one knew, they said the dog had been dropped off by family members at an old guy's house and he wasn't able to care for him so the dog just wandered around the little town and didn't really have an owner. Jerri, being the critter lover that she is, told them that she and Bubbie had been talking about buying the girls a Basset so she told them she'd give him a home.
Trisha called last night to tell me that Jordan had also played in a tournament yesterday and her team came away with a 1st place trophy! She said those girls dug in and played hard after a couple of early losses in order to win the tournament later in the day.
Well, that pretty much sums up my week other than the conference with Zach's teacher on Wednesday, but that's another post. I hope everyone had a delightful weekend!
