The weekend starts early!

Friday has not only arrived, but Mike is home early and it seems our weekend has begun. Micah and Jamie are both napping, though Micah should be awake soon. He is still not well, but is in a good mood most of the time nevertheless. Today is day nine of his saga. I will not say any more on that subject.

I have a clean living room, and a half-clean kitchen so far, plus I have my diapers in the wash so I feel good about the progress I have made so far today. It's a beautiful day outside and once again there is a fresh breeze blowing in the house. Ironically, just as I typed that, a huge cloud of tractor odor wafted in the window and now it stinks in here. Gross. I just can't get used to that smell. Blech! Hehe. I guess I might end up closing all the windows for a while.

Mike is going out to pull the old barbed wire fence that is laying on the ground on the outskirts of our property. We don't know how far around it goes, but it is definitely a hazard for horses, so if we do get one here we have to get rid of it. Besides, it's just more junk that I want off our land. I also called a scrap metal place this morning and a guy came and took one of our three old junk vehicles away. We have two more, and I think he is coming back for them this afternoon. He said he would be doing three trips. I assumed they would all be today, but I may have been mistaken. I guess we'll find out. Anyway, they are located in what will be our pasture, so we need them out. I thought we might need our fence done right away because I had a horse to look at tomorrow. He is a buckskin, five years old, green broke and a registered Quarter horse. Anyway, he got sold yesterday, so I guess it was not meant to be. I am kind of sad. I love buckskins, and I was wondering whether perhaps he was the ideal horse for me, but I was obviously wrong. Oh well. Maybe we won't get one yet. I have no idea.

Cody's attitude is remarkably improved today even though we were out until 9 p.m. last night. Oops. He has been way better today than he has been in a long time. Weird, but I'll take it. My iPod still got stolen once today, but it was by Jamie. He stuck it under Cody's fitted sheet. I found it when I went down the hall and heard loud music playing in their room. TobyMac. Oh well. At least he has good taste.

So, this is not an exciting post, but I have to go. I forgot to pull out some meat for supper tonight so I have to do that right away. It has been a difficult week, particularly with Micah and also with Cody's attitude issues, but I see light at the end of the tunnel. Perhaps soon I will even post some pictures of our fence-building ventures. That would be fun. I'm off for now. Probably going to start my homework this afternoon.
