boys & tractors

Hi there!
Yes, I'm still here.

remember a couple weeks ago (a week ago? who knows anymore) when I said Rob was going to be working long hours. That was a lie... and tiny accidental lie, it ended up being too warm for them to lift (sugar) beets for a whole week after i said that. Now he is really working double time!! On the weekend he's doing noon to midnight and during the week, 6am to midnight. It will be over very soon. On Sunday we followed him out to the field - because otherwise we'd get really lost, my skillz with directions are not good when there aren't any landmarks other than stop signs and dirt roads - and Devin and I got to go for a ride in a red tractor. Up until last weekend when my little sister's boyfriend brought him a toy red tractor, he Devin thought all tractors were green. He thought it was totally cool that dad was picking the 'vegetables' and putting them 'up there' and in the truck.
Here's D last year driving tractor:

So while dad's at work, I'm on my own getting us up and dressed, and out the door. I am usually the one to drop D off in the morning, but it's harder getting out the door {on time, the most important part} without an extra set of hands. Same goes for getting home and eating supper - the kid hates supper almost every day. And I hate enduring it alone, I hate getting into bed alone too, especially now that the weather is cooling off and the sheets are cold when I get in. We've been keeping it fairly simple and it's been going pretty well, even if I have to let him eat supper like a doggy, haha.

Also this week, I joined luvinthemommyhood's Carefree Cowl Knit-a-long. I got some sweet yarn from the yarn shop! That place makes me happy, I don't go often enough. I'll come back and tell you about my project this week.


  1. I agree, and not because I know anything about farm equipment, but just because I prefer the color green to any other color haha..


what do you think?
