Wicked Walk 2/4/2015

I slept until 8:00 today.  Well, I stayed in bed until 8:08.  It was glorious.  Until I realized my step-son had turned on the coffee pot at 5:30 and it went off at 7:30 which meant the coffee was cold when poured into my favorite mug.  I can’t stand cold coffee.  I gulped down a…

Rachel~Week Two

Rachel has rapidly gone from small, somewhat defenseless, calf to charging, milk-crazed manic.  I had the pleasure of caring for her almost exclusively this week.  My legs are bruised, my arms are sore and I ate dirt for breakfast Wednesday morning when, apparently, her bottle was insufficient.  I guess by running to and butting me…
