good morning and all that jazz
Well today will be the day that I hit fifty thousand hits... So, scroll down and check the sidebar out to see if you are my fifty thousandth hit.
There won't be like a prize or anything...
Oh, quit yer bitchin'...
So, this weekend was crazy fast for me. I had to work on Saturday and then came home and took a nice two hour nap. Who says you can't make-up sleep?
Afterwards, I took Amanda, Emilee and The Cake Lady's two older kids to the rodeo (pics are, of course, on flickr). It was a s-l-o-w rodeo as there was a much bigger one in a neighboring town. Only like three or four bull riders but I was cracking up when they had some guy from New York out there riding for the first time.
He ate it two seconds out of the shoot.
Amanda saw her first ever crush there. Now the mere mention of this kid's name two years ago made Amanda's face turn bright red. That has mellowed into a nice "girliness" consisting of giggling and teasing.
The boy is a cute kid and I swear must have some serious American Indian in him. And he was the first steer rider of the night. He didn't win but he stayed on a helluva lot longer than he did a few years ago.
Sunday we made a trip to Sam's Club and to Wal-Mart with Fairy who I think now hates me. We are cruising through Sam's Club and she keeps saying, over and over, "I can't believe you never brought me here before..." as she added more things to her cart.
But, we love her, just as we love any one with whom we shop who buys more stuff and therefore spends more money. There is just something nice about dropping a hundred bucks and have the guilt be quashed when your shopping buddy drops twice that.

I have been getting quite a few emails over the last few days since this post with some very interesting guesses :)
Keep 'em coming!

Last thing to mention... On AMC they are showing a two part movie thing called Broken Trail. The first part came on last night at 7:00CST and was pretty fucking good... They will be playing the first part again tonight followed by the second part.
Watch it, it is good.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
