Sometimes You Just Gotta—Sunday, November 8, 2015

Sometimes you wake up and go…”I’m tired of the same-o-same-o.  We need to do SOMETHING different!”

Friday was a day like that for Terry and I.

JI’ve been painting in our house for the last several weeks…bathroom, bedrooms, front and back porch; plus all the other things we have been getting done in preparation for the corn harvest. Loading up hay for hay customers, winterizing both yards and pumps and well, the list just goes on an on.

Terry looked at me and asked, “Well, what do you want to do?  Got any ideas?”

Yes I did!  I have been missing Bladen.  It was many weeks ago we saw him.  He didn’t come for Halloween, because of basketball games that weekend. (And, of course OTHER more interesting things 8th grade boys like to do.)

So we called Misty and asked if we could come up for Blade’s game with Baggs Wyoming.  It would be a fast trip as there were hay customers coming the first thing Saturday morning, but we wanted to see everyone for a couple of hours and watch Blade play.

She told us to come on up, but don’t tell the kids…just drive in an surprise them!

So we did!


Three hours up, a few hours there, then three hours back.  It was a nice break!  Even nicer to get to watch Blade play.

Blade-1Breaks…they are very good in the scheme of things…seeing family and grandkids…priceless!

Your friend,

  1. I love the spontaneity of it all! I think as we get older and duty-laden, it gets harder and harder to say, “What would I like to do today?”…it is hard to identify the desire…and it used to be so easy to just let everything go and follow a whim. So, I am proud of you. And thankful for Terry. The work will always be there waiting. But the basketball games won’t.

    • No they won’t always be waiting. And the kids are growing and changing so much, we JUST HAVE to figure out how to see them more. The drive was in a snow storm, going and coming but ever so worth it.


  2. Good for you and did Bladen’s team win??
    I’m guessing that Bladen is either No 1 or 41.
    Has been bucketing down here for last couple of days due
    to severe storm cells – but the great news is that the “outback”
    also is getting a drenching. The farming community is “over the moon
    with joy”. I guess you’d know the feeling, eh?
    Some areas in far outback – the best drenchings for 3 years!!!
