I havent blogged in so long I forgot my password. Truly. I had to log in again 4 times. I havent had to do that EVER. I was about to start a whole new blog over it.
Where have I been? Enjoying my husband! He was home for 2 wks on leave from Iraq. He has left us now, we took him to the airport monday morning. We left at 3:30 a.m. and dropped him off in Kansas City and then drove the 2.5 hrs home. It was solemn.
We had a wonderful time while he was here, I didnt take nearly as many pictures or videos as you would expect as I was just too busy enjoying him! We did a number of things, completed many projects and had a lot of fun. We built a new lean too in the fence that was finished, made a new 10x6 ft sliding door for the front of the barn, the old one had been screwed into place with scraps of plyboard and 2x4 by me as it was falling apart...
I got a new compressor, yes its mine, it is my self proclaimed mothers day present. I could have had anything I wanted-anyone who knows my husband knows that, I wanted my husband and I got him the day before. That was perfection. The compressor, well that was icing. I needed a small compressor because I cannot move the large one. This one can go WITH me into the barn yard(s) so that I have use of the nail gun, pneumatic scissors (borrowed-I NEED A PR OF THESE THEY ARE SO COOL!) etc.
We did a lot of other projects including putting up the pool and working in the gardens. We went to the zoo, went to the movies, ate junk food, hung out and generally had a wonderful time working and playing. I am glad he came, I am sad he is gone and I am grateful we have only a few more months before he is home. I do have a lot of pictures and would have taken pictures of projects today but it is raining so that must wait.
I am off to bed early because I have to rise before the farmers tomorrow in order to be at one of their barns to pick up straw before he leaves for the fields. By the way, the farmers rise while it is still nightime. Yes my friend Amanda in California, you can call it morning because is is A.M. However, it is nightime when it is dark out.
