Country New Year

Happy New Year! We spent our New Year in the country. This was our first weekend at the new house. After a week of running back and forth getting the electric set up it was finally done on Friday so Saturday bright and early we drove down to "the farm". One thing is for sure is we will need a car with better gas mileage, though I love my truck it will kill us in gas. Just this weekend I put 500+ mi. on it and at least $80 in the gas tank, I'm sure I did the same last week but for the life of me I cannot remember how many times I filled up.

We have alot of work ahead of us but we did manage to get a few things done. Bobby reconnected some wires the electrician forgot to do and went about fixing electrical outlets, prepping the heater, securing his pole barn while I worked on putting up curtains and arranging some of the little bit of furniture we have. Jeffrey and Sierra went with us but Sierra spent the weekend at her cousins which made her day. On New Years Eve we celebrated by sleeping...hehehe some partiers huh? Since we only have the hideabed right now we slept on it and Jeff made a pallet on the floor. With him on the floor I didn't want to sleep without a bra on but halfway through the night I gave in and took it off and stuck it under my pillow.
The next day I ask Bobby if children get money under their pillow when they loose a tooth and put it under their pillows at night; What did I get for putting my bra under my pillow at night? I laughed so hard just trying to ask him this I had tears rolling down my face from laughing so hard, they started laughing because I was laughing, finally after I got it out he said, "bigger boobs!" That's so typical of him to say that......haha I just said, "oh no, I'm fully loaded already, I don't need no more!" Of course someone had to make the snide remark about me being fully loaded after what I had for dinner....hehe they are so silly!

Well there was nothing really exciting to tell about being down on the farm although we did find something interesting. I was standing in the laundry room when I noticed this big round lump on one end of the room and I asked Bobby what it was, so he tapped on it and it sounded hollow sounding. So they pulled back the carpet to find what looked like a sewer cover, he opened it up and said that it was a well. This well was at least 5 feet deep, 7 ft. wide, and 12 ft. long!!! Of course that led to conversations all weekend on how we could hide each other in the well and no one would ever find us!! To think we love each other too....hehe we do, we just joke around about stuff like that. When they pulled back the carpet you could see the sides of the wall where they didn't cover it with anything and if you wanted to stick your hands or arms down in the wall you could reach the crawlspace underneath. This will definitely be a site of contention with me because I am sure every bug and animal will be crawling through that hole as soon as it warms up a bit. Why did I think I wanted an old farm house in the country for? What was I thinking????? Bobby already came in the house with a big red spider crawling on his back, I'd have had a heart attack if I had seen it! Whew!! Country fun! Well, I'm out! G'Nite
