We went to the rodeo last night

I hadn't been to a rodeo in probably 10 years, but I thought Miss Priss would love it. She did. My husband had no interest in going, so we went with my sister and his mother. My favorite part was the Native American dancer. He was probably 10 years old, and he put on quite a show. He did the hoop dance, dancing with rings in the center of a circle of fire. My daughter loved all of it! She wants to be a bull rider/calf roper/bulldogger/barrel racer when she grows up.

Every day is a holiday

My child can turn any day into a holiday. Last night she walked into her room and saw me changing the sheets on her bed. She LOVES clean sheets! If it was up to her she would have fresh sheets every night. LOL When she saw what I was doing, she ran into the living room to her daddy. "Daddy do you know what today is? It's clean sheet day! Happy clean sheet day Daddy!" She is a funny little girl!

My daughter is amazing

Even when I am having the worst day, she can cheer me up. Today we were driving home and she started to tell me a story. "Mommy, do you know that I have a monster? He is really big, and he goes under the ground and takes you anywhere you want to go. And you ride in his mouth. But you don't sit down, you stand on his tongue. Did you know that? And you take off your shoes so your feet don't hurt him." It was adorable. I had to call her Daddy so she could tell him the story. Her imagination amazes me. I am so incredibly proud of my little girl.

I just did something stupid

We have an ice storm moving in, but I really needed to run into town for a couple of things I forgot just in case we loose power. We hadn't gotten any precip yet when I left the house, but before we made it to town five miles away, the roads were getting slick. I didn't even go all the way into town. We turned around and headed home. I knew better than to go out, but convinced myself I could beat the storm. Not a smart move.

I am so worried about Wade today. He drives a truck, and is still 150 miles from home. His company is really good about not sending them out when the roads are bad, unless there is something that just has to be done. I'll be anxious until he pulls into the yard.

Living in BFE

I love that I live in a town of about 60 people. I love that I know every single person within a 5 mile radius of my house. What I don't love is having to drive to three different towns to get a prescription. My husband went to our doctor this morning in a town about 30 miles away. He didn't have time to go get his prescription, so I offered to do it. I drove the closest town, about 10 minutes away, and the pharmacy didn't carry what he needed. I had to drive an hour in the other direction to go get his medicine. It has been a frustrating day.
