Just busy. It seems like every time I sit down to blog someone calls, or shows up..or the kids start fighting. I haven't been able to catch a break I swear.
So what have I been up to...well...end of the year homeschooling stuff..trying to get the portfolios together and figure out what we still need to accomplish...I'm finding that I'm short on writing...my kids HATE to write...its something that we've struggled with all year. We've made some progress, but not as much as I would have liked. There is always next year, right?
Mike and I attended a military ball a couple of weeks ago. It was a fun time. I really liked the king sized bed and quiet room we had :P The day after that we went to visit an Icelandic sheep farm. I fell totally in love with all of them...they were so sweet and woolly :-P I didn't have my camera and Mike never took any pictures with the camera he had..oh well..next time. Lambing season starts at the end of next month and we're hoping that one of the two of the ewes that are bread to the AI ram Mori will drop a little ram to be the breeding ram for my flock. I'm pretty excited about getting sheep :-D
Mori, the Icelandic Ram
Spring is officially here, and it really felt like it last week..temps in the 50's. This week its been cold again..and I'm really ready for the cold to just GO. I broke out my red crocs and am SO ready for spring to just be here already. I'm looking forward to digging in the dirt and planting tons of veggies...
Ive been dealing with an ill cat. Midgi has FLUTD...feline lower urinary tract disease...basically he has crystals in his urine..and they irritated his bladder and urinary tract so that he got pretty stressed out..and when he got stressed..a muscle near his bladder got tense..making it impossible for him to pee at all...so a weekend at the vets, catheters, testing, bladder flushes...he's finally home. Not 100%. IN fact I don't think Dr. Sally thought he was going to improve at all..but she felt that he had a better chance at home where he was less stressed. Well..this morning he was producing drops...then lo and behold he peed a stream..on the floor..but still. If he hadn't started peeing..I would have had him put down today...and I really thought that was what we were headed for...and I was pretty upset. Let's hope this trend continues.
So a big "Happy Spring" to everyone...once things slow down I promise I'll be back here regularly...now I'm off to help with personal narratives...joy of joys. :-P
