This is a series of posts that I wrote back in 2006 on living with less stuff. Check them out: liv011Living #2liv031liv04

Over the shoulder

boulder holder.

Or in my case, small landscaping rocks. April has purchased two new bras! It’s a miracle, a true blue miracle! Well, except the bras aren’t blue. I’d show you a picture, but, um, no. I will tell you that I bought them from Target and they were under $8 on the sale rack. Please, please, I know, thank you, really, please hold your applause, thank you.

In other news….

When it rains it pours my friends. I’m trying to get my life organized enough to leave town for the weekend, but all I can do is turn circles.

Today I lost a load of clean laundry I was going to fold. Just so happens I took it out of the dryer, put it in the laundry basket then put it all back in the washer to wash again. Gah.

The store I need to go to today doesn’t open until 4pm and I’ll be doing one of my little volunteer jobs at that time, then taking my son to his “GOD PLEASE PICK HIM” baseball practice, then picking up my kids from church, then, then, then…..

Clay is conveniently out of town for business and will get home just about the time that I’ve picked up all the kids and started for home. Yeah for me.

I’ve become completely distracted by a potential job that I would love to have, so much so, that I can’t think of much else. And that’s not good, refer to laundry mishap in first paragraph.

The other night I spent a strange amount of time searching for boar semen. I know. We plan to artificially inseminate one of our pigs and I thought I should start researching boar semen now. Who knew there was such a big market for that stuff? Wow. Being a Pig Farmer is not the job I was referring to. I’ll let you know about that later, maybe, if I can remember.

What was I saying? Boulder holder, lost laundry, job, semen….um yeah, I think that about covers it. Oh wait. I forgot to tell you that we have added a new member to the family!

He comes and goes as he pleases. He lives in every room. Sometimes he stays outside, but right now he’s on Ellen’s bed. The boys love him. I, well, I, um, er, I hate him. He causes me a lot of work. I wish he would have the courtesy to stay outside where he belongs. My family doesn’t seem to notice him sometimes. Especially Clay, he just forgets that the little guy might be tagging along with him. Do you know what he is?
