Crazy, Crazy and more Crazy

I swear that our clients at work are crazy. They are nuts and are acting like they have no common sense. Rules, so what. Guidelines, oh well. I just want to go in my office, close the door and never come out again. Doesn't sound so good for the manager to hide does it.

I'm praying the craziness goes away.

It's all about Golf

I'm so proud of my nephew. He has made it to the state golf tournament again this year. He is young in for his age group and played against mostly high school students. I have watched him grow up playing golf and he has become an amazing golfer. I remember when he was about 2 years old, he would walk around with his plastic golf club saying, "I'm Tiger Woods". (pre-tiger woods scandal). He has practiced alot and played alot to get where he's at. Great news is that he is playing at a course near us, so we will get to see him.

Where the Universe spins out of control.....

I swear that the Universe is off it's axis (is that even the right term). Everything is absolutely crazy this week and some of last week. I'm getting so annoyed with having to deal with crazy people that being a greeter at Wal-Mart is starting to look very appealing. It almost like everything that is happening has to be just a little crazier than the next.

Observant Dad

My dad told me that on Saturday afternoon Cowboy was laying on the living room floor with Sadie and he heard snoring. He looked on the floor and saw that Cowboy had his mouth closed so it must have been Sadie snoring. Dad then told me that one of them must have passed gas because he could smell it.
The next morning, Cowboy and I were laying in bed and he said, "Your Dad is sure observant. I was laying there and let out the quietest gas possible. " "Your dad got up and left the room. He sure is observant."
How funny. My poor Dad. I know how stinky Cowboy's butt can be. He always says those are just little butter bean farts that don't smell.

Cowboy is so particular about his truck. It's spotless. He takes such good care of it.

Today, I had him meet me at work so he could spray the weeded around one of the home's we run. He was walking around the yard with me, when I noticed a car had hit is truck. We went over there and a really young 19 year old girl was caught up on his bumper. Normally, Cowboy would blow a gasket and cuss and yell. I was braced for the wrath of Cowboy to come pouring down on this poor little girl.

Instead, he calmly helped her get the vehicles unstuck and then let me go about the business of dealing with her insurance company. He was very fortunate that she had insurance. Actually, that was the first thing out of her mouth..."I have insurance".

Later, he flagged her down and apologized for getting so upset.

He did so good. I was so proud of him for containing his anger and looking at the situation just a little bit differently.

Weekend on the Farm

Cowboy and I went to the farm for the weekend. It's been a while since we have spent the whole weekend on the farm. So for father's day, we headed down to the farm.

We met up with mom and dad and then headed to town for dinner. Town is about 4 miles away and has a population of about 50. But there is a cafe there. It used to be the store and the restaurant was a couple of doors down. (I worked at the old Town and Country Cafe in high school.) A couple came in and made the store into a cafe and moved the store part next door. They serve a great dinner. I decided to pick up the tab--it was a total of $28 for all four of us. Bargain!

Saturday morning, Dad, Cowboy and I headed out to the golf course to meet my brother and nephew for a big golf challenge. We got there at 8a and no one was there to rent us a cart so we started playing. (Golf courses in the city open at dawn.) We had a blast. I did win a couple of holes outright from the "boys". We threw in a game of bingo, bango, bongo. Cowboy and I were the big losers of the game and on the score card. My nephew is 14 and is an amazing golfer. He beat us all.

Saturday afternoon, mom and I went grocery shopping. Then it was home to make chocolate chip cookies for dad and potato salad for Sunday lunch. It was a lazy evening at home.

Sunday morning, mom and I ran to town to buy a few birthday gifts for her great-granddaughter. I finished fixing lunch for 18 of us. Country style BBQ ribs, baked beans, and jello salad. It all turned out very yummy. The most of the family was there. The day was loud, crazy and a lot of fun.

It was good to be with my mom and dad for the whole weekend. It was good to be around the farm and get re-centered and relaxed.

Happy Father's Day Dad. You have done an outstanding job of raising an amazing family.

Randomness to catch up

I sit down to blog and have a little case of writers block or actually I have so many things that I want to write about that I write nothing, no filters. So I'm just going to put my randomness out there.

I was bored out of my mind this weekend. We didn't do anything and I didn't have any energy to do anything. I laid on my couch a lot and watched TV a lot. I was such a slug.

Our garden is growing but we've had to re-plant part of it three times that I'm not sure what is where and now the damn deer think it's their salad bar. Where is Cowboy's gun when you need it.

Our basement had water in it yesterday. All related to the freakin' rain that won't stop. Bummer was that although we have tons of storage, I had three boxes that were in the room that got wet and they contained old scrap books, pictures and other stuff. I spent two hour going through old emails from boyfriends and pictures when I was stick thin. Oh to be skinny again.

I went to the eye doctor on Friday. My eye doctor is so hot. I seriously thought about asking him to have an affair. I did call Cowboy and told him that if anything happened to home, I would be okay since I would be a doctor's wife. I wonder if it would be wrong to ask him to be the father of my baby. I'm serious about that. He asked be to look at his ear, he had nice ears. Where else do you want me to look, Dear Doctor???? Yum-yum.

We're headed to the farm this weekend and I can't wait. It seems like forever since I've seen my momma and daddy.

Cowboy and I are doing really well. I love that man. I was telling him the other day that I was amazed how we just seemed to get on the same page more and more as time goes by.

I have all these crafty ideas rolling around in my head but I haven't done to make them come to life. I really worry that sometimes that I have a few bi-polar symptoms--periods of mania and bouts of depression--all very mild.

I continue to be very frustrated about my weight. I am going to the doctor on Friday--complete physical. I can't keep gaining weight or I'll weigh 300 by the time I'm 50. UGH

He's learning

Just a same recap in case I haven't talked about this lately. Cowboy has OCD and he is meticulous, especially about our vehicles. He also has a short fuse and likes to rant and rave, at me.

I picked up a 31" used TV for my brother and didn't get it unloaded before I went to work. As I was driving, it tipped over and left a little scratch on the window seal. Really, barely a scratch at all. Most people wouldn't have even noticed. But Cowboy did.

When I asked him to help me unload it, he started his ranting and raving. I told him to stop and he did for a second and then started again. I told him not to start on me. He said fine and then added, "don't talk to me before you leave."

I then sat a box down in the garage. Cowboy asked what was in the box. My come back, "you told me not to talk to you". I went on into the house and started watching TV. About 20 minutes later, he came down from the computer room and was civil to me.

It is really the first time, I didn't listen to his ranting and raving and told him to stop and he did. He thought about it and apologized about it later. Maybe he can learn. Maybe.....

Another Good Weekend

We had a great weekend. My friend, Dr. T and I went to the movies. Sex in the City 2. Loved it, but didn't think it was as good as the first. It seems that I see those movies at the right time in my life to fit what is happening to me.

It was really good to get together with her and spend time with my friend.

Saturday, we went garage sale-ing and then came back to the house to clean it. We got a little sidetracked when Cowboy bought a new bike. I'll have to post pictures. He can't decide which motorcycle he will keep. The boy cannot keep them both.

We got all our flowers planted around the house. We got 1/2 the house cleaned. Laundry done.

Today was beautiful out and we hit the golf course. We played with a couple of guy that weren't really that fun. That's twice in a row we've had bad luck with our golf partners. However, I played so much better. My goal is to shoot in the 90's on a regular basis. I've done it twice in a row so maybe I'm getting there.

Right now, Cowboy is watching a chick flick with me. I love that man.

Ding Dong

I was in the shower this morning and Cowboy heard a door bell. Ding Dong. Ding dong. He comes downstairs and check the front door, no one there. He checks the back door and looks out the windows, nothing.

When I get out of the shower, he asked if I heard the doorbell. No, I was in the shower. He said it was really weird that heard the doorbell but no one was there.

On my way out the door, I picked up my phone and saw that my co-worker had called. Her ring on my phone is a doorbell.

Mystery solved but funny that Cowboy was so stumped.

Morning Send off

Cowboy walked me to the door this morning, said good-bye and watched me get in my car.

I turned to wave goodbye and he was standing in the door, drawers down waving good-bye with his weiner. Really, big wave good-bye.

He makes me smile.

Awesome Weekend

Oh my gosh, the weekend was just what I needed. I came home a little early on Friday and took off my watch. I didn't want to be tied to a time schedule and I didn't want to make grand plans.

Friday night, Cowboy and I jumped in the car and went to FiveGuys for dinner. We love their hamburgers. On our way, we saw a deer crossing the street (4 lane in town) and honked and slowed down to watch it cross in front of us. Only to see the car coming at us, slow down and hit the deer. Cowboy was pissed. It was senseless and so sad.

Saturday, Cowboy and I bought a great used car for his cousin's girlfriends daughter. We discussed keeping it if they didn't like it. It was fully loaded and drove like a dream. Cowboy started detailing it when we got home and I watered the garden. It was then off to the golf course. The first six holes were great. Cowboy and I got to play by ourselves. Then we joined the two guys in ahead of us, as the play slowed down. They were not fun to play with and we didn't enjoy ourselves very much. We have been pretty lucky that we always get to play with such nice people. Not so much on Saturday.

Cowboy grilled on Saturday night and we had an awesome dinner. Brats, pork chops and chicken on the grill along with crab stuffed mushrooms and fresh spinach. Yummy.

Sunday, we took the car to Cowboy's cousin and his girlfriend. They were thrilled with the car and loved it. I got to drive it. Sooo nice. We then went on to a friend of Cowboy's, Fred and Sue. Freddy and Sue are very simple country folks. They stopped all they were doing and provided us such a warm welcome. We sat in their yard in the yard swing and drank beer and visited all afternoon. They then grilled hamburgers and hot dogs along with homegrown asparagus and fresh salad from their garden. It was a perfect afternoon.

Sue said that Freddy had commented to her that he wasn't sure why Cowboy was his friend but he was grateful. There is only a simple answer to that. Freddy and Sue are great people and Cowboy is a great judge of character.

Monday, we got up and went to breakfast with our neighbors and then played golf with the son and daughter-in-law. I played great. We played on a beautiful course and it was a great afternoon.

I was so sad to see the weekend come to an end. I need more time with Cowboy just like that.
