Things I Hate

I've debated putting up this post for a while, but then I figured, what the heck? It's my blog, I can put whatever I want on it!
So, in no particular order, here are some things I hate:
1 - The cows getting out. It really makes me stress.
2 - People talking to me about things I post here or on Facebook. To me it seems that since I posted it, the conversation about it is over. It's out there. It doesn't need to be discussed.
3 - Not knowing the outcome of the scores of games or how a movie or book is going to end. I will read the ending first and if I like it, then I will read the book. It doesn't ruin it for me at all, even though people give me grief about it. I also DVR movies and will fast forward to the end to see if it's worth my time to watch the movie. Sitting at my kids' soccer games and track things can almost make me sick to my stomach...not knowing how it's going to end!
4 - The stupid 'tradition' of buying a 'smash' cake for a first birthday and taking photos of the birthday kid making a mess with it. It's just gross. And sticky and a waste of money.
5 - Dusting. and cleaning windows...nope, not my favorite things.
6 - Not having enough time to put my own house in order because my 'order helper' is helping everyone else.
7 - The days when I feel like everything I do is a waste of time because it's just going to get dirty/messy/dusty/slept in/muddy/whatever again anyway.
8 - When people make a statement and expect me to respond. I wasn't asked a question. If you were comfortable enough to make the statement, you don't need a yes/no/comment from me.
9 - People assuming I'm depressed because I like to be alone. Sometimes I just like my own company. I can read or scrapbook or watch a movie without someone saying "MMMMOOOOMMMMMYYYYY". It's kind of nice actually!

Okey-dokey. That's enough for now.

Shoulder problems

Darn it. Ethan was really looking forward to playing soccer this fall for school! But because he caused some damage when he dislocated his shoulder (several times recently), he is going to be having shoulder surgery in August. Before his MRI however, he and Dallin played in the Summer Scrimmages at West high school.

Fourth of July

Yes, I know today isn't the 4th of July...I wanted to post some pictures of what we did on the 4th...And don't be complaining about me not posting them no later than July 5th. I just didn't get to it! We went to a family friends' place in Hickory and had a BLAST! Even though it thunderstormed a little, at least it wasn't SO DANG HOT you were sweating just sitting still. I hate those days! The kids were able to swim in the Lake (Lake Hickory) and we watched a way better fireworks show than if we would've stayed in Statesville!

Kirsten's face when she jumped in and realized that even with the life jacket on her face still went under the water...

Hayleigh jumping in and floating around. She LOVES water!

Ethan playing with Kirsten in the water - check out those muscles Ethan has! yikes!

Dallin and Ethan playing around

Hayleigh and Kirsten jumping in (once Kirsten got used to the water!)

Kirsten in the water at sunset - love this pinkish color!

NO eggs!

During the warmer months we usually have 8-10 eggs a day. Not so this summer....because of this guy (or girl - I really don't care to find out!).

Before this thing moved to our farm, it was the size of an inch worm. After a diet of yummy farm eggs, this is what it looks like!

Porter Rockwell

Keenan recently went on a missionary field trip in SLC. He and a bunch of other missionaries went to a cemetary where a lot of 'notables' from our church are buried. Tim has always had an interest in Porter Rockwell who served as a bodyguard for both Joseph Smith and Brigham Young.
