DS leaves this morning to go down to the Keys with a group of scouts for Seabase. They will be swimming, fishing, sailing, snorkeling, and just having lots of fun in the water. He will have a wonderful time. It'll be strange around here, though, with him not around. I'm really going to miss him. But, DH has taken the week off work so it'll be nice spending time with just the 2 of us.

My day:
Get DS up at 5:15 a.m. and to the church by 6:00 to meet up with the others
Call and make follow-up doctor appt
Get circle journal info out in the mail to Mazda
Wrap friend's birthday presents
Update checkbook/pay bills

Have a wonderful day!

07-06-2009, 07:16 AM
Okay, I'll bite, joyah, what's "cattle software?"

My day...
Up (kind of)
Work all stupid day
Stop at the library and pick up the pass for the zoo tomorrow
Keep my fingers crossed for a nice day tomorrow!

Hope everyone has a great day!

DIT, have fun with just DH! ;)

My husband has been dabelling in raising beef and it's getting to be more than I can keep up with in my homemade excel sheets and desk calendar. So we need something that really will keep a herd record. Basically an individual record on each cow and calf, heat cycles. We ( he and my dad) want to go to AI verse having a bull year around. by doing that you're mixing lots of lines and since you shouldn't interbreed so therefore I (being the computer savy one) need something to track all this in! What a process this will be. I also found out that we really should have the ear punch testing done. I will be leaving the farm that day, think giant ear peicer but bigger hole.

Holly hanging in there.
Nancy I'd be running the other way if my Dh ever even looked at stuff. I have to force him to look at what I've done total nother world
Buffy look out for the bowling game just about threw out the shoulder bowling with the Wii have fun.

07-06-2009, 02:51 PM
Ah, makes sense now Joyah!

Happy Birthday 13 YO DS of BAMB!

Yes, Holly, we are going to Roger Williams tomorrow, unless it's not the best weather day and we go to Mendon instead (I have the pass reserved for RW, but the radio station sells 4 packs of tix to Mendon for $25 or so). We'll see how it goes.

It definately isn't for everyone, but I know where my meat is coming from and so it's a trade off. Since I can't afford to go to and organic farm (dh self employeed and me unemployed at the moment) it is cheaper to raise it. I'm sick when I do go to the grocery store (once a month) and hear people complain about the price of meat. If they had any idea how much work farming takes they'd never complain again. To us raising our meat and veggies is a way of life. I grew up on a small dairy farm (my parents both worked besides the farm) with just a few beef cattle for our own use and my DH grew up with first calf heifers on his grandparents farm. We both always had huge gardens and canned the veggies. It definately is a way of life that is dying, We also make maple syrup and keeping up with that industry is going to drain the bank account.

The one thing that makes us the happiest is showing other people what farming is all about.

have fun Jennifer. i love that place!

my dh would totally love that. it seems like a ton of work. but like you said you've done it your whole life. i give you a real lot of credit.

07-06-2009, 03:32 PM
BAMB~ enjoy the teen year!!! I've got 4 in them and one to go!!!

Got the 18 yo w/ the attitude who thinks because he is 18, he can tell us how things are going to be... Uh, remember you want us to pay for college...so you will be abiding by our rules or since you are 18... you can pay your own way... choice is yours.. (right now, I'm all for the latter! LOL)

15yo who thinks because she can legally drive w/ an adult, I should no longer be allowed to drive.. UH, sometimes I want to get there and get back w/o using the invisible brake!

14 yo who believes he is "IT!" Enough said with that one...

13yo who just is the life of the party.. actually was awaken about 3am to his cell phone vibrating on the floor due to some "slumber party" girls prank calling him... they were a little shocked when mommy answered the phones and offered to call and wake up their parents if they didn't stop. They called back this morning about 9am and apologized.. I told them I've BTDT but 3am is not acceptable...

9yo that wants to be the teenager and has forgotten that it's okay to be the kid; he'll be wanting these days back when he is an adult....

07-06-2009, 04:13 PM
Your not that far away. I'm half way up VT on the Nh border. So if you ever come north let me know.

07-06-2009, 05:00 PM
Well, the stuffed cabbage recipe is also from the fix it and forget it light cookbook... got good reviews from a friend... but as much as I want it, I made lasagna today instead. I don't think the kids will eat the stuffed cabbage, so I'll take it to the beach and make it for Dh and myself this weekend.

Glad to see SIOH and PO3 on the boards today :banana: Miss you guys!

BAMB- Teenage...grrrrrrr...nuff said... but HAPPY BDAY to DS!! Have fun with the Wii :)

PN96- Holy Mother, do I know what you are talking about!! Both with the Step part, the DH part, AND the 18yr old boy part :hug:

Joyah- very cool! I wish I was closer, I would love to come over and see what it's all about!

DIT- Brief empty nest...how's it going? I got a pang this morning, out of the blue, just hit me up side the head...wow, just a couple more years... DS21, DS17...both so grown up now :guilty: HOWEVER, going to the beach alone with DH has been eye opening...who knew after 25yrs we still sould have stuff besides the kids in common? :confused3

AWM- bet those pups are getting big!

MM2000- Hope it's great weather! Have fun!

flyingbabyb- Oh, I so need to get my BR done...

RLW- Hope your anniv was a good one! And that you are feeling all better...

I miss you guys!! Dayshift is good workload wise, family wise, but I miss my DIS time, and I miss my friends on evening shift!

Tomorrow I get to do the bubbie squish... It's been 3 years, but I'm being good and getting the girls zapped :crowded:

07-06-2009, 07:40 PM
DS13 says thank you to all the Birthday wishes from his DIS Aunties!!

07-06-2009, 07:50 PM
Debbie if you ever decide on a new england leaf peeping tour look me up. Nothing better than Vermont fall. Other than a vermont winter (did I just tpe that?? Heat must have gotten to my brain.) I actually love winter, just not the ice.

Unless you have cleaning fairies, the mess'll still be there in the morning! Hate that, sometimes those messies bring their friends too!
