Some observations from the past couple days...

--The brakes on the minivan are great...and Steve's reflexes are excellent. We avoided hitting those two deer on our way to Tractor Supply Company...with room to spare.
--When dogs are quiet, they are getting into trouble. Deja the foster dog ate all the valentines treats received for the dogs and for Sam that were left on the kitchen table. Luckily, Sam doesn't know any better yet. I figure this is about the time he's going to start realizing when things go missing, so I'd better learn to police the dogs a little better.
--We are experienced farmers now. We notice when the price of any of our farm supplies goes up or down by even a few pennies. In case you're interested, the price of pine bedding went up by almost a dollar a bag!
--We can lay a laminate floor but are clueless how to fix a garage door.
--No matter how cold it gets, if your husband is too stubborn to buy a propane tank the barn heater isn't going to turn on.
--There is no rhyme or reason to hormonal mood swings when you're pregnant. Everyone should just forgive you and stay the heck out of your way. It's only the polite thing to do.
--There is nothing better than snuggling in bed with your two-and-a-half-year-old son and watching Blue's Clues. I know what you're thinking...Blue's Clues? Really? But I'm telling you, if you invest in a tape with four episodes on it, it runs long enough that it doesn't seem all that repetitive. And you can't match the joy on your son's face when he proudly points out, "That silly mailbox is being a crazy monkey."

Glad to hear the brakes work well!

And what a nice Blue's Clue's moment. :-)
