No, I didn't lose my mind. The above title is what Josey called last week. She was very excited when I told her that spring break meant that I got to stay home from work and play with her all day. She kept referring to it as "sping bake". Ahhh, the things kids say. :)
The week flew by, just like they always do. I felt like we were extremely busy, but that we didn't get much accomplished. That's pretty much how my life goes.
We started out the week with a trip to Lake Sommerville. Matt and I took both of the kiddos out on the boat. Josey LOVES the boat and the water. She's destined to be a lake rat. I spent lots of time at the lake growing up, and I loved every second, so she gets it honest. Josey and Cody both drove the boat (it's a pontoon boat) and they thought they were sooooooooo cool and grown up.
Monday, Mom and I took Josey to the Lufkin Zoo. If you are looking for a small zoo with great exhibits, then it's the place to be. Unfortunately, Josey hated it. She loved the "mingos" (flamingos), but she didn't like anything else. The peacocks run loose throughout the zoo, and they especially scared her. The good news of the day was that I found a really cute dress at Rue 21 while she was napping in the car with Mom. :)
I had allergy tests run on Tuesday. They were far from pleasant and I am a total moron to schedule them during a week when I OUGHT to be enjoying myself. Good news- none of my allergies are very serious. Bad news- I am allergic to dogs, dust, and some weeds. Have I mentioned I have a chihuahua and a schnauzer that live in the house? Best news of all- I now have a totally legitimate excuse to rip out the old carpet that has been driving me crazy and replace it with hard wood like I want.
We worked both sets of cows and got rid of some dry cows. It was bittersweet. I know there's no reason to feed something that's not producing, but we got rid of some that I really liked. It's a hard battle when your head and your heart don't agree. I know it sounds like I'm talking about something really major, and you're thinking "it's just a freaking cow", but I love the cows. I really do. Make fun of me if you must.
Lake Limestone was graced with my presence on Saturday, with my honey, Josey, my bestie and her hubby, their very adorable 6 month old, and an old friend I hadn't seen in a while in tow. We had a blast on the boat again. My honey proved to be even more amazing by getting in the frigid (and I mean REALLY frigid) water so that Jos could get in it to pee. He got in. He started to turn blue. Um, not really, but almost. Josey decided to get in the lake to pee. I started to lower her in. She shrieked hysterically. I lifted her out. She got all smiley again. Matt didn't even get frustrated with her a bit. Even though he almost got hypothermia. Just kidding. Anyway, is it any wonder that I love this man to pieces?
Jos was certainly sad that "sping bake" was over yesterday. Her mommy was, too.
Forty five more school days until SUMMER. Wooooooo hoooooooo!
