Forcing It

There are days when, from the moment you wake up in the morning, you know you are not going to get anything done. Oh, you'll be busy all day, but at the end there will be nothing to show for it.

I am sure you have had days like that...we all do.

There's cows in them there hills

This is going to be one of them I think. Everyone else is up to something is like a bee hive around here, the young men working on the John Deere tractor, the boss off to the doggy-wog amusement park dump with the trash, Liz toting stuff to the men with Peggy's help, and Becky at work down in town.

I started out to write a Farm Side about the new methane emissions regulations for dairy cows in California, but I tabled that about 200 words in. A job for a quieter day.....

 I am grateful to have men who can fix major problems with important tractors, a guy who will get the cleanup done, a cute, if slightly under the weather baby to keep things interesting, and her mom to do the goferring....but is a madhouse around here.

I am not going to even try to force myself to concentrate on writing something complicated today or tackle any big jobs. Just go with the flow, enjoy the excitement, and walk the doggies every now and then.

Aw...hope Peggy is feeling better soon.

I'm having one of those days also...hopefully tomorrow I can get CAUGHT up! :)

It seems like more and more of my days are like that.

Cathy, guess she is mostly teething, cutting upper back molars, but she is just miserable and so sad. I hurt for her and there is so little you can do to help. She is usually such a little smarty firecracker girl, but now she is just hurting. Poor baby.

Linda, teething, but what a misery.

Jan, Ackk!! Drives me crazy. I got up a couple of hours before the sun today to get at least some writing done. Those Wednesday deadlines keep coming earlier every week. lol
