My Life in a Photo

I was going to throw this photo out because it was blurry and had no meaning, but then I took a closer look and I couldn’t stop laughing.  This photo says more about my life than I care to admit.  Let’s look at this case study of April.


1. The barn cat.  Annoying as hell-o these cats were on our porch waiting for us when we pulled in with our moving truck two years ago.  My children went ga-ga over them.  I was too focused on making sure none of us had a mental break down so, of course I said we could keep all of them.  These cats lay on my porch cushions all day, they make huge messes in the barn and they beg for food constantly even though they have food in the barn.  I’m pretty certain they are the cause of all my poison ivy rashes and if they aren’t, I’m blaming them anyway.

2. The porch floor.  It’s old, well, not really, it’s actually not that old, but it was built out of old wood flooring and that flooring is starting to rot from all the exposure it’s had from rain and snow.  We’ll get serious about replacing it as soon as someone we love falls through it and breaks a leg.  If it’s someone we don’t love, then we’ll need a lawyer.

3. The toenails.  I don’t remember the last time I had a pedicure or bothered painting my nails, it’s not high on my list of priorities until I slip on a pair of sandals and then I’m all Oh CRUD!

4. The chicken poop.  Should I be concerned that it’s on my porch or that I’m standing in it?  I’m obviously not very concerned about either right at the moment.

There you have it.  Life on Coal Creek Farm, it’s messy, disorganized, rotten and itchy.  Wanna come over to play?
