My hubby has magic hands though, and he has been kind enough to give me great massages, which has helped to ease the pain immensely. Thank you honey!
Anyway, because of my back, we have not done a whole lot of anything this week, except for lots of last minute school shopping, because I am a terrible procrastinator...I am still not done with it! Poor Bo, Waska, Amber and my kids. They have all lacked attention from me this week.
On Friday, we did go over to Amber's, took the trailer to get new tires, got a load of hog fuel for the flooring in the horse's shelters, brought the trailer back, washed it, painted any rusty spots on it, and unloaded the hog fuel. Well...the kids and Amber unloaded it. I sat there like a toad and watched!
What could possibly be more fun than riding in the back of a truck full of hog fuel??
Here they all are, getting ready to unload the truck. For those of you who know us, look at Jake's-Amber's 14 year old Aussie-coat. He just had it all shaved off last week, and he now looks like an old, saggy dog. He feels much better though!While Amber pulled forward and backed into the next run, Eric posed for this "Built Ford Tough" shot. That's my little redneck! Complete with Ropers, Wranglers, and a Mack truck t-shirt! My kids are both great little helpers, and Amber says that she cannot wait until Eric is around 16, because then she will hire him to do everything! Hey...wait a minute Amber! I am the one who labored for 38 hours with him, so I should get first dibs on him...heeheehee!!!As previously mentioned, I did not help unload the truck, but I did help wash, prime, and touch-up the trailer. My kids were more than a little bit bummed that I did not feel up to riding, but they settled for grooming and playing with the horses instead.
Don't you just love Katie's pink socks with her brown tennis shoes??? She had been wearing her flip-flops, and didn't want to put her boots on. The hot pink socks make a lovely statement with her plaid capri pants, don't they??
Tomorrow should be our last day of school shopping, orthodontist appointments, dentist appointments etc...and I should continue to feel better, so things are definitely looking up. Hope that all of you have had a nice weekend!
