1. The Lock-In
The Good: The girls had fun. Much laughter and giggles and line-dancing, and whipped cream pie in the faces, and rainbow looming, and silly movies, and all the little things that girls love to do.
The Bad: The heat was not working in the gym at the church. We were cold to say the least.
The Ugly: The Day after and MamaHen. Ya'll, if I wasn't asleep I was complaining because I wasn't asleep. It was not pretty and for some reason my left hip got a catch in it and it was not a pretty site seeing me limp around. I have done my duty and any other lock-ins will have to be overseen by those younger and in much better shape than I am.
2. My house.
The Good: Due to me sleeping all day Saturday and folks coming in and out all day Mark called a cleaning day Sunday and when he is here the children get busy and get it all done. I did eight loads of laundry also and Abbie and I even got it all folded.
The Bad: My house is clean as of 7:56 AM. If you don't get here in the next 30 minutes you will have missed your chance.
3. Annabelle, the goat.
The Good: She is pretty. And that's really all I can muster about her right now as far as good goes.
The Bad: She is having contractions, and doing everything in the book that says she should be when having the kid. But no kid.
The Ugly: Mark says I need to stay off the internet because I have diagnosed her with every possible goat ailment known to goats in the last 24 hours. I have to be gone quite a bit today so I am naturally worried about her. I read that goats like to wait until the least capable person is left at the house alone and then have the baby. So, I am trying to decide which one of us is the least capable for assisting in a birth. James, the seven year old, is the most likely candidate, but I don't want to get hauled off to jail for leaving my seven year alone at home to birth a goat.
So, today will consist of running children back and forth to lessons, checking on the goat, and tonight James and I will tour a fire station with his Tiger Cub group. I think this will be 15th fire house tour in all my years of Scouts and homeschooling. I think they should make me an honorary fire-woman, don't you think?
