Just checking in - we are still alive and well!
Really well, in fact.
We're making progress at home - and have stopped calling it "the new house" and now just call it home.
I think that's a success.
Chandler is sleeping much better through the night, and doesn't wake up sobbing. Note - I didn't say he sleeps all the way through the night, each night - but that isn't related to the house, lol. He's also sleeping in his crib - but in the picture below, Clint was gone one night at a bull sale in Baker, and I'd brought Chandler to bed with me since he'd had a tough night. His eye teeth are coming in, and he had a cold - so he got to sleep with mama this night. No complaints here. :)
On the other hand, our washing machine does not like our new house. It's decided that it only wants to work part of the time and not drain the rest of the time. You can imagine how much I love this temperamental-ness! Especially when I have sheets and towels and other laundry to do. :) We think the filter may be plugged, but I haven't figured out how to take the front cover off and Clint has been busy - so until then, I just keep resetting it - and sometimes it works.
And other times - my laundry sits in a pool of water for a day or so.
I started hanging pictures on the walls last weekend. If the wall had an existing hole, I stuck a monkey hook in it and hung up a picture. I figured I wasn't creating any new holes, so I'd see how I liked things, and then if I didn't like them - I wasn't creating any more work for myself and could start over. I have a ways to go - but at least it's a start.
PS - If you haven't used Monkey Hooks before (or the generic brand of them) - you need to! They are awesome. And cheap. And can be bought at almost any hardware store/Walmart/Home Depot type store.
The spring AI season has officially started for us!
We went out to Ione last weekend to put CIDRs in a group of heifers - and I didn't get any pictures while we were putting them in, but I did after we were done and tearing down. I've basically come to the realization that taking pictures like I used to just doesn't happen as easily when I'm trying to do a job and take care of Chandler.
