something to cheer us

I have tried to not get down about our current situation of being a one car family (Brett's Jeep bit the dust a couple weeks ago and we still have not found the right car for the right price) and now we have not had power for the last 18 hours or so. It is 96 degrees out so it would be nice to have a little airflow tonight while we try to get some shut eye. I also have over 240 ounces of "B Milk" in my deep freeze that I worked pretty hard at getting so hopefully the $60 worth of dry ice that we bought this morning will keep it frozen. Anyway, Brett and I went home over our lunch hour and where heading back to work as we were complaining about how the air-conditioner in my car really sucks and needs to be charged when we both saw this truck in front of us and could do nothing but laugh:

Seriously, someone does this??? Apparently they do a lot of it or they would not spend the time to repaint a whole truck with the word "poop" on it. I did a little research and for a low price of $7 a week I could have Debo's poop removed from my yard. MMMM, that's OK, I enjoy going out there once a season and picking up what Debo has not already eaten for for a hot treat. (yes, he is a cute dog but does eat his poop, thus the blog about getting his teeth cleaned, Think how your breath would smell if you ate your poop).
I am in no need of this service but if you are you can go check it out at:
Ahh, thank you Northland Poop Scooping, not for cleaning up the stinkies in our yard but for giving my husband and I a much needed laugh.


Fathers Day Delight

Who can resist a man with a baby??? Not me. I am always running for my camera every time my heart melts when I see my boys together. Brett is a wonderful father and Hutch loves his Daddy without a doubt!!!
Happy Belated Fathers Day to all you good Daddy's out there!!! Hope you had a great day!


I Heart small towns

This weekend we took off Friday from work and headed to my old stomping grounds, Sabetha, KS. For some reason, this is becoming my new favorite vacationing spot. It is not a far drive, there is always great food (I had an amazing steak this weekend) and wonderful time with family.

This weekend I had another couple reasons to love the small town. A few months ago we were told by our vet here in KC that our dog really needed to have his teeth cleaned. I did not disagree, Debo likes to eat his own poo poo from time to time so his breath was out of control. I got a quote from the vet and it was near $250 to have them cleaned!!! Since there are a few other things that may come before Debo having his teeth cleaned such as clothing my child and eating, I thought we would see what the cost was in Sabetha.

The grand total came to:

$60 bones??? What a deal!! They even trimmed his nails for free while he was out. I am forever going to Sabetha for check ups. I had almost a $200 savings !!! Maybe this is a business opportunity for me. I take your dog for the weekend to the farm to wear him/her out and get any vet visits taken care of for a small charge.

The other reason I love small towns so much is because they really help you regain your confidence. This weekend I ran in my first 5K since I got preggers. I just started to run again and watch what I eat so I am pretty slow these days yet:

I got third in my age group!!! Ha ha. Everyone in my family placed in their age groups so we were all feeling pretty good. I may have run the slowest I have ever run but I still got a metal and a bag of dog treats that I won in the drawing ;)
If I could get my friends, Target, D'Bronx, Okie Joes and our church to move to Sabetha, I am pretty sure we would be moving tomorrow;) I love where we live but the small town is the best place to live if you ask me. Go shopping and out to eat in the city but just live the good life in a small town. Maybe someday.
p.s. Dad and Joce, thanks so much for making the weekend so relaxing and enjoyable, you do a great job of entertaining your guests!! Oh, Hutch misses the farm already! Can't wait to come back.
