OK so today is a holiday in this house. The first tractor pull of the season (that just so happens to be in our town). Today I am ready to sitt on my ass and watch. Watch the tractors that are just comming out of the field. Watch the tractors that are only for pulling. Drink and Drink and Drink. Next week we have to decide on weather or not we want to go to Kentucky or stay around home and go to a pull here. The Kentucky pull has a better track, different compition, little better payout and really really cheep food. The pull close to home is well not 4 hours a way, well I guess that is the extent of the pros for that pull. In a few hours I will be baking in the sun, drinking a nice cold beer, watching/ videoing the pullers as they try to walk it out the gate. "Warning" lots of pics might follow later or tomorrow.

Scratch and Sniff

I know I have been MIA for a little while. I guess I better catch you all up. I turned 25 Shelby turned 4. We had a party for her on sunday. It went amazing!!!! I started reciving shots in my back for pain. (just made it worse so far) We are living in the brick house by our selfs. (the president moved to the white house). Life has been ok so far this month.

I titled this post scratch and sniff becasue we were outside last night and I had wished that I could send the smells in the backyard to eveyone in the world. Ok just the few who read this. We live on a farm as most of you know from reading previous posts. When I walked out the back doo the first thing I was smelling was a evening storm. I my semlling abilties I think if you take a light rain on a 90 degree day and combine it with the smell of a strong storm brewing where you can smell the electric in the air. The next smell was the corn growing. This is not a smell I can decribe. I will try though. Kinda when you mix a light shower with dirt and a little sugar smell. Not really but something like that. After taking that in for a little while Farm boy burnt trash now normaly I would not stick around for that becasue you never know what smells are going to come out of that. For some reason last night I stayed. I am kinda glad I did. When he lit it first it smelled like burning paper. When it took though it started smelling like a bonfire with some Smors cooking and a burn hotdog. I love going outside durning the summer and smelling things. I am not looking foward to when Farm boy shoots the Skunk that is living in the Hay Shed.

I am getting so excited for this weekend!!!! This weekend is the start of TRACTOR PULL SEASON. Shelby is ready to watch Farm boy haul down the track. I am ready for that but more so for the food. Farm boy is ready to see all our friends drink some beer with them and see what the new tractor can do. I will post pic. on Tuesday of this weekend. I guess I should include Shelbys 4 year old picture first though were going to do a quick look back on this time last year.

That was 2009

Do you see a differance I am not sure I do 2010.
I guess I will through in another just for fun here is the pic I used for her 4 year pics.

or was it this one I dont rememeber

or maybe this one still not sure oh well

For your parting shot Shelby and Farm boy after her birthday party

Have a great day!!!

Our week so far

This has been our week so far. It started out with this.

Then lead to this.

Then this one last time.

After that was dont we started this.

That led to Shelby having to do this for hours.

While Farm boy planted corn Shelby thought she could go out in the field and follow him.

Well she just got stuck so I kept her busy on the grass running back and forth. I waited a while by the seed truck.

Then she went to far and I had to go fetch her.

I love living on a farm. Even if I am sarrounded by Green Tractors. (note to self find red tractors)

I haven't seen Farm boy much this week (when not on a tractor) He leaves for work early comes home and farms late in to the night. Shelby get to see him more than I do. (She can ride in the tractor with him I can't that is where she has taken most of her naps this week). Well I will leave you all with a parting shot I hope you enjoyed my week so far. (We still have to plant beans so you have been warned).

We had a Horrible - Wonderfull weekend. Jon's Grandmother passed away and her wake and mass was this weekend and Monday. She was a beautiful person. Her passing has been very hard on Jon. Lets go to the Wonderfull. Lots of Family time. Little Kevin was home and we got to spend time with him. Jon and I decided what I am going to go back to school for. I am going to go enrol tomorrow. I might be really really old when I get done but I am going to do it. There were alot more good things that happened. Any questions ask. Oh Miss Shelby is doing great.

Fancy Ketchup

What is the deal with McDonald's? I took Shelby there for lunch today because were are going to the park. She gets her usual chicken nugget mighty kids meal and I get a 10 piece nugget with a sweet tea. (I know I am a bad Catholic) The lady/guy ask me if I wanted Ketchup and I said lots please. I pull up to the window the order is right so I pull away. We get home and I look in the bag and I got 4 Ketchup's that's it. Wow that's alot. What is wrong with the world today? I said alot and get 4. If the accidentally gave me 5 would I have to pay for that extra or what. I am pretty sure McDonald's can afford to give away ketchup. Ok sorry I had to go off a little.

Nap time

Here latly it has been a incressing struggle to get Shelby to take a nap. Last week she feel asleep on the floor in the living room. Today it was the same. She fought me for 2 hours to even just lay down. Jon has been home most of the day. All Jon had to do was come in to the house and say "you need to take a nap baby girl" with in 5 min. She was out. How much crap is that? I would like to know when the proper age is to let her not take anymore naps.

Erin and I met when we were in child devolpment class in 2000. Wow has it really been 10 years. Erin and I hit is off instantly. We have had our ups and downs. As does every friendship. Erin has been there for me when I really needed her. I hope I have been there for her as much as she has for me. Erin has 2 beautiful children. I was appart of both of there births it was amazing and I will be forever greatful to her for alowing me to be appart of that. Erin is also a great phatografer. (yeah its spelled worng but whatever you get my drift) Erin is also my web designer. I have computer issues I call her. She just redesigned this blog. I love it!!! I think this is my way of telling Erin (who I believe is the only one who even reads this blog) THANK YOU! As much as this sucks to write I cant wait to see what the next Gulp 10 years are going to bring. I love you Erin.

4/12/10 Henyarita died last night were not sure why. Shelby is very saddened by this. I think life will go on it might be hard for a while but we will be fine.

We have this Chicken her name is Henyarita. We got her and 53 other last May. Henyarita is the only servior. 50 of the others were butcher chickens. The other 3 were layers. 2 of the layers were eatin by our dog. 1 of the layers we think was eatin by a mink. So that left Henyarita, who has become a chicken/dog. What I mean by that is well let me just show you some pictures. This is Shelby hold one of the chicks in May this is how she started.

This is Henyarita now.

And this

and this

and well this she followes Shelby everywhere and anwsers to her name Chick/dog.

Ok I am looking for good blogs to read and keep up with. I have a few on my list now. They are

In no order. I am looking for somemore mommy blogs I have been on the CNN website and serched the best mommy blogs of 2009 but the only one that applealed to me I already read that that was . So if anyone who happens to come across this has a good blog for me to read I would really be happy!

WOW two post in one day holy crap I must be on a roll.

Rain :(

Rain. Somedays I like the rain. Somedays I hate the rain. Today is a hate the rain day. I am sick of this rain crap it is depressing! I am ready for warm summer days with no rain and tractors in the field. I might not be able to be the one in the tractor but I can at least watch the tractors go up and down the road. Or back and forth through the field in fron or behind the house. I am starting to get the hang of this sit do nothing thing. At least not be so depressed about it. Watching Farm boy in the field from the house I can still call him on the radio and tell him that he is doing it wrong. He never should have put a base station in the house and a radio in my truck. Don't get me wrong I love that instead of wasting 20 seconds digging out his phone then another 3 min calling mine becasue I have lost it again. He can now just hollar on the radio I am done in this field moving to this one. Or I am going to town you need anything? On my end I can now watch him work and depending on my mood I can get on the radio and hollar at him that he is doing it wrong. Or Food is ready. Oh wait we were talking about rain not my new radios. Back to Rain. It sucks. In the summer its not so bad becasue a nice shower when it is real hot out can be cooling. But right now its just plain cold. The wind is blowing hard and the ground is really saturated. So in conclusoin NO MORE RAIN!!!! I think I ended on the same subject I started?

Hey Hoosier!!!

This phrase is one of the most used phrases in our house. Usually this phrase is called out by Farm boy or myself. If Farm Boy is the one saying it then either Shelby or myself are the recpient. Yes I myself need to be told every once in a while. I guess I should tell you what Hey Hoosier means.

Hey Hoosier: Your butt is hanging out pull up your pants!

Shelby cannot help being told Hey Hoosier! She has no butt so her pants just fall off. I have yet to find Jeans that will stay up on her that don't require modifaction.

I on the other hand just have gained a few extra pounds so mine just dont fit right I know it is no excuse but what can I say I love food.

So if you are ever around here and hear Hey Hoosier you might want to check to make sure it is not geared toward you :)

Is a salid still concidered healthy when you add Cheese, ham, crutons, and lots lots of ranch dressing? I am trying to eat a little more healthy. So I decided having salid. Well when I make a salid I have to have cheese meat crutons and lots and lots of dressing. Farm boy says I am defeting the prupose I need to stick to the veggies and a some of those salid spritzer things. But then I wouldn't be able to eat it. So I am eating my salid the way I want to because I am the only one in this house that will eat the Rabit food.

My Poppy

In 11 hours and some minets my Poppy (grandfather) will have been in heaven for 9 months. I am writing about this now because I think I have healed enough to do so. Or maybe I need to write this so that I can heal more. Poppy's death was unexpectant then again it was not. He had been sick for sometime. I know I need to start with some background but the background in my family is very very confusing to me. 1 minute you have a happy slightly disfunctional family with Uncles Aunts cousins grandparets, then the next you are to speak to none of them! When you do start speaking to them you are no longer part of "there" family but a outsider wanting in. Poppy never made me feel like that he was the only one that I could go see and still feel the same love the unconditonial love that I had felt before. The day that I herd Poppy was sick I went to him I only left when the rest of the family did weather I was welcome there or not I was not leaving without a fight. Poppy made it threw that frist night and the next day a 9am I was the first one in his room sitting by his bed. talking to him telling him how much I loved him and he knew who I was look dead at me and said hun I dont want to eat yet. I told him that he didnt have to eat if he didnt want to that was fine. I told him I loved him while he was awake and he said I love you to breeann. those were the last words he spoke to anyone. Grandma came in and I held her hand (that is the closest grandma and I have been in 10 years for family issuse reassonsee hey I said disfuncial.) I stayed there all day at 3 in the after noon he took a bad turn and I called everyone and said get up here. a few hours later everyone was there but my dad. I was in bad enough shape as it was I needed my dad there He needed to be there for him. I moved a mountian that night dad showed up he was there. he was with the whole family when grandpa passed the way it should have been. I read something i wote for grandpa at the funral.

For my Grandpa

I know we are all feeling a little bit sad,
That we've lost our Grandpa, our friend and our dad
Together we have cried an ocean of tears
As we feel so empty and hold many fears

But Grandpa would want us to know he's in a good place
And that he watching us all with a smile on his face
As we have made him so proud, as proud as can be
That he has raised such a beautiful and special family

Thinking back now I really must say
I feel lucky and privileged to have known Grandpa to this day
For in my life, you have played a special part
The memories I will treasure and keep close to your heart

For me I am glad my little baby he got to meet
And for all of us, be grateful, his life is now complete
To each one of us he has loved and cared
And a family, be thankful for the good times we shared

Although he has gone we will always be together
And his spirit will live on each one of us forever
When you look to the sky, look for the brightest star
As that will be Grandpa looking down on us from afar

And now I would like to thank the good Lord above
For blessing us with our Grandpa with his kindness and love
Dear God, if it is not too much fuss
Take extra special care of our Grandpa as he is very dear to us

Grandpa if you are listening say a prayer for us every day
Be sure to protect us and guide us on our way
We know when God called you, you had to go
But we want you to know Grandpa we miss you and love you so

I miss my poppy and am having a ruff time with him being gone. I dont tell people this because its not who I am I am tuff. I am not a cryer I am not one to let things get in my way I am one to let things go but I cant help but cry myself to sleep a few night a week thinking about him and what he and uncle J and uncle B and little granda ma and papa Jack are doing I know he is fishing and WALKING with no cane and I cant wait to walk with him and he can match me step for step or go fishing and actually catch something not just lies. I miss you poppy. (still not feeling better it was worth a shot though)

Weather Reports

I think I am going to start doing Weather reports for the recliner. Sounds like a good plan to me. I have a great view of the front yard form the picture window and the chair. So why not start.
March 4Th 2010
Sunny a few clouds
No rain (right now)
nothing is flying past the window so I am going to say no wind either
It looks warm outside (looks can be deceiving)
Please take in the fact that I am in south central Illinois so everything could change in a Minute.

That is my weather report as of now like I said it could change.

My farm Boy

I met my farm boy when I was working at a John Deere dealer (gasp I know I know anyone that knows me knows that the green stuff is against my reglion). I am a Case IH girl through and through. It took my Farm Boy 6 months to get me to go on a date with him. Not that I didn't want to just that I wasn't sure of what I wanted at that point in time. When I finialy did say yes to that date, we went to Knotty Pine in Breese, it was nice and cozy. From there we went to Dutchmans and Pats. He took me back to my truck and I went home. The next night my Farm Boy ask me to come to his shop. So I did we talked and he noticed that my oil change in my truck was about 10,000 over due and that annoyed him to no end. So when I said oh I will get it changed tomorrow he told me that no were going to do it tonight and together. So off to walmart we went. We went out to eat at Pizza Hut and came back and changed my oil together. We have worked together ever scence. He has told me on more than one ocasion that he likes the fact that I will work beside him not behind him. He knows that I have grown up farming and loves that. He loves that he can call me from work and tell me to hook a a piece of equipment up to a tractor and go to work all without him having to watch and make sure I am doing it right. (before I broke my back now I just sit and do nothing) He knows that I am not affraid to ask him any questions becasue if he thinks I already know the answer he will tell me to think about the question and then answer it my self. If I still cant then he will explain it to me in my speak. I think and speak simple! I love my Farm boy. The day that Shelby first me him we were working at the John Deere dealer together and my dad had her she couldn't go to daycare because she was sick. Well Papa needed parts so he brought her in covered in choclate, dirt and some sticky supstance he put her up on the parts counter and ordered his parts. I took every baby wipe I had sent with him and tried to clean her up. In the process Farm boy cam up from the back and needed something. It was love at first site Shelby jumped off the counter and went to the back and wached Farm boy walk in to the shop. She cam back up front and waited the second she herd the door form the shop open she ran and jumped in to farm boys arms. He held her tight and carried her everywhere. I could see form that moment that this guy was the right one for us. He loved us both. Today Farm Boy is working construction telling me that I need to keep my head up that things will work out and my back will get better Shelby is just as much in love with him as the day she met him. She greats him everynight with a hug and kiss and I messed you. He kisses us goodbye everymorning with a I love you and be good for both of us. My farm boy never yells at me or Shelby just gives us a stern look every now and a again when we need it. I love my Farm boy and cant imagain a day with out him.

I am getting new tires tomorrow!!! I am so excited about that. It's the little things that excite me. With the new tires comes new excitement. The tires mean I can go places again. I can't go real far but I can move and go and not have any tire worries. I still will have transmission worries but that just means that if that brakes I will just stop moving. If one of my tires were to blow I would be in major trouble. Where will my first jounery be? Not far its hard on my back. I am just happy that I can leave the driveway. (yes my tires were that bad). I will try and post tomorrow where my new tires will take me but I am not garenting that.

I know I know

I know I know when I started this blog I told everyone who reads it that I would post once a day if not once a week. Well this has been a ruff week on me. I guess I should start out with last weekend. Saturday Jon and I went to Effingham to a wedding. We had a blast!!!!! We stayed up there till about noon on Sunday. Came home and took a nap. I have been hurting all week really bad calling the lawyer everyday twice a day. trying to get something done. Well nothing is happening. So I guess I will just have to be in pain for a while longer.

It snowed about a inch yesterday and so Miss Shelby is stuck inside becasue she has a snot nose and a slight caugh. So she is wound tight. Jon is somewhere not sure where but he'll be home for lunch in a few hours.

I know I am kinda rambling with this post not really sticking to one topic and for that I appoligze.

Well I think that is all for now maybe I will find a topic that I can stick with later.

Here is a pic I took last week of Jon and Shelby Naping.
Thought I would share it with you all.

To much!

Thinking about to many things to pick just what to write about!

Wednesday, January 20, 2010


Well today started out very different. Jon was called off work this morning due to the rain, so he slept in with Shelby and I. That was nice. My alarm went off at 7 to get Shelbers up and ready for school. Jon being off offered to get her up and going and take her. Shelby was very excited about that. So we all got ready and took her to school. Droped her off everything was great. Jon and I came home and made breakfest then went over to the shop so he could work on some stuff and I could work on some billing. Well about 1030 I got a phone call from Shelbys teacher that she had been playing on a scooter in the gym and fell busting her chinn open. So off to the er we went. She was so good in the er untial they brought out the needle. So they had to put her in a little straight jacket it was sad. She ended up getting 2 stiches. They should get to come out next Wendsday. well that was my day. Hope yours was better.

So as most of you know I LOVE sleep!!! My list of love goes

1. Sleep
2. Food
3. Shelby
4. Jon
5. Friends

Yes call me what you want I put sleep and food before my child and future husband. At least I don't hide it. In speaking of sleep, aren't children supposed to start sleeping through the night at 4 or 5 months? If this is the case then can someone please inform my 3 year old of this. Shelby is still waking up at 2 every night. Last night being the exception, she woke up at 4. Woohoo that's 2 extra hours of sleep for me. Now when I say she is waking up I mean that she wakes up from her bed and comes in to Jon and I's bed. Well this year (all 19 days of it) I have started waking up and taking her back to her bed when she does this instead of just moving over. I am hoping that she takes the hint. I have also started making her put her self to sleep with out me laying next the her. Yes call me horrible or what not but I have been making her cry herself to sleep some times nap time and bed time. I think in the long run that this will help her and me as well. If anyone has any advice to offer please I am all ears.

I am still really sick! I started getting sick on Friday. Shelby was sick all last week so of corse I am going to get it. My chest feels like a 400lb person is juming on it. I know I have Pnamoania, I have had it a few times before and know what it feels like. I have no Ins so going to the Dr. is out. unless I am not breathing I am not going to the ER either. I slept on the couch last night for a while Jon didn't what to leave me so he slept in the recliner. Miss Shelbers slept in her room till about 2 and then moved to the couch with me. That lasted about a hour before I went to bed. Jon got up and went to work about 4. He carried Shelby in to me so she might might sleep longer. I managed to get her to stay (quiet)till about 8 now thats a record. My fever is raising 104.3 Great and this day is only getting started.
