My computer is broken. So I have wait by the door from the time I wake up until Clay comes home ten hours later. I now know what a dog goes through being left home alone with nothing to do but stare out the window for his master to return. By the time Clay gets home I'm ready to pounce on him, rip his bag off his shoulder and get my fix from his computer. I might even run a few circles around the kitchen island until he yells at me to, "Settle down!" It's not pretty and neither are the Capri pants I'm wearing.

If I had a super power; today it would be laser paint eyeballs.

Remember when we had that big wind? You know, the giant gust, the microburst, the thing that Seth thought was a tornado and after it hit he rushed his baby brothers to the basement? And when I got home I saw our shed had exploded all over the cornfield, remember that?
Guess what I got for Mother's Day?
Here is Sophie, having babies on Mother's Day. I am the proud owner of three new barn kitties. Sophie's sister, Mia, acted as midwife and helped keep the kitties warm. Mia is due to have kittens any day now too. I'm sorry, but I think these are about the ugliest cats alive...sorry girls.
May I introduce to you Tulip and Daisy. Uh, excuse me, I was expecting the flowers that grow in the ground. Hello? Hello? Flowers? These look a bit like pigs to me. Hello? Anyone?

Dearest Darling April,

Oh Mickey your so fine, your so fine you blow my mind. Hey Mickey!
Now, try to get that song out of your head. Not possible.
A long time ago, when I was newly married to the skinniest man on the face of the planet, I worked at an animal hospital. Because I love animals and I fleetingly thought that I might should have been a veterinarian. That thought lasted about five months, then I got pregnant. As a pregnant woman I really didn't want to smell one more animal or their yeasty ears, puss filled abscesses, hot craps or the most gagging thing.....the Lysol that everyone sprayed to cover those smells. Yeah. Good times that first trimester at the animal hospital.

I'm having a terrible time focusing on one task before I start another. I get so distracted. I went out to plant potatoes in my garden yesterday and I did, but it took me twice as long as it should have because I had to stare at the dirt, pull some weeds, daydream, think about rocks, watch a worm and drool before I could get the darn taters in the dirt.

How long has it been since I told you a story of how I hurt myself? Was it the head banging in the basement? Because I bonked my head down there once this week and the same day I whacked it on a low hanging door in our barn. Anyway....
