Oh man, this trip has really snuck up on me. (Is "snuck" even a word? Should it be "sneaked"? At 6:25 on a Sunday morning, I'm just not sure.) Anyway, despite everything else that's going on around here, things that normally would keep us pretty close to our new home, Jim and I are off to Mexico for the next week for a family (his side) reunion of sorts. I have been non-stop busy for the last three days trying to get the house (and property) in order for our houseguests.
You see, my mom and step-dad, with hearts of gold, have agreed to "babysit" the farm while we're gone. I sure hope they're still smiling when we get back. :-)
I wish everyone a wonderful, sunny and safe week. I'm off now to say goodbye to my 12 chicks. Hugging each of those 12 little feathery bodies will be difficult. They probably won't tolerate kisses. And Roxy, my pup, well, I'd just like to scoop her up and stick her in my carry-on bag. I'm just no good at saying goodbye!!
