Our garden

I have so many pics of the garden but I'm unable to upload any pics from my camera. I hope to fix that soon. Stacey and I are co-farmers. We technically were co-farmers last year but as I was 8-10 months pregnant last summer, she did all of the gardening herself while I hid inside with the A/C cranked full blast. Although I do think I did a tremendous job supervising. This year we are planting: lettuce, peas, cabbage, corn, beets, brussel sprouts, leeks, radishes, strawberries, tomatoes, green peppers, and jalapenos. Hoss built us a fence to keep the dogs out and tried to cut off his thumb in the process. He probably could have used a couple of stitches but instead he just super glued it shut. Ewww. He asked for my help with the surgery and I promptly refused. I did however offer to drive him to the Dr's office, he politely declined my offer and muttered something about how "real men don't need no stinkin' stitches". Anyway, it's snowing lots and lots right now so I brought in the strawberries and tomatoes last night. I hope what we already have in the ground survives this storm. Keeping my fingers crossed. Speaking of all the snow I think I'm going to ask for a snowblower as a gift this year. Hoss is usually gone when it snows and the kids aren't much help. They don't have much upper arm strength, they are such weaklings. Eli lasts the longest outside but he spends most of his time shoveling designs in the culdesac. I am sore for 3 days after shoveling the walk and driveway. And my favorite chiropracter has moved to Panama. Darn him, following Gods calling and all that jazz. Hoss says it's better to shovel early, even if it's still snowing, makes it easier to keep up with. I think it's better to wait till it's done snowing then shovel. Doesn't that make more sense?

Cheap home security system

Found this, thought it was funny:

Here are some instructions for installing a home security system yourself.

1. Go to a secondhand store and buy a pair of men’s used size 14-16 work boots.

2. Place them on your front porch, along with a copy of Guns & Ammo Magazine.

3. Put a few giant dog dishes next to the boots and magazines.

4. Leave a note on your door that reads:


I went for more ammo and beer. Back in an hour. Don’t mess with the pit bulls - they attacked the mailman this morning and messed him up bad. I don’t think Killer took part but it was hard to tell from all the blood. Anyway, I locked all four of ‘em in the house. Better wait outside.

I am a Mixed Chick hopeful

I have never liked my hair. Never. It is so hard to take care of. My dad is mixed black and mexican. My mom is a redhead with freckles. I have naturally curly hair that is very course, kinky and tightly curled. And I have LOTS of it. I have tried so many styling products, I usually end up mixing a few together to get the best results. I don't like spending too much time on my hair mostly because I know the end result will mostly look the same. I just found out about a new hair product called Mixed Chicks. It looks very promising. So promising that I ordered some online today. I am hopeful after seeing some of the before and after pictures and reading a few of the tesimonials but of course that is on the company's website so who knows? It should arrive in about 1 week and I can't wait to try it.
