sweeping it under the rug {good luck, nick!}

Right at this moment K-man and Nick are waiting
to catch a flight to Florida.
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

Nick is playing in the
Optimist International Junior Golf Championship

at the

PGA National Resort and Spa.
**Please take a moment to click on the link so that I can have your full sympathy**

I will be holding the fort down at home.
Yes, that is what I will be doing.
I am doing that.

All feelings of resentment and bitterness will be
continuously swept under the proverbial rug, while simultaneously
sweeping the crumbs of real life
from my living room rug, continuously.

But don't you worry about me.

It just so happens that I got me some new rubber boots
that make caring for my chickens
a breeze.
Not a
Floridian breeze, but a breeze, no less.

Although I really should be wearing flip-flops on the beach.

Never mind.

Please excuse me, I have some sweeping to do.

Good Luck, Nicky!!!

Oh Lori, I can so relate!
I hope God is preparing a spa for us mommies - well, I know it will be something better. :)

Go Nick!

Cute boots! But today is Tuesday, not What I Wore Wednesday! :)

I have a similar pair for rinsing show heifers... Such a glamourous life.

Karin said...

Now those are some kickin boots, girl! I suppose they will have to get all gunked up with chicken droppings, but still....

I am so sad for you. {moment of silence} And now for the 'but think on the bright side comment' that no one appreciates... Just think of the jewel you are getting in your crown for this sacrifice. :) Seriously, God DOES see your sacrifice and He will reward you.

Just wanted to send a little note :)
I live in South Florida, and let me just tell you how stinking hot it has been! No breeze at all. And the humidity! And it has been raining everyday, sometimes a couple times a day...you would think that would cool it off...but it just makes it more humid :) Trying to make you feel better!!! :) Hope it is working! :) Praying your son rocks it at this tournament!!

Good luck to your golfer. I know how you feel though... my daughter a high school sr. was selected to spend her summer taking 2 classes at a major college all expenses pd. and when they finished classes they were taken to Washington DC for a week. Still hard to believe I let her go and my only vacation was the 9 hr. one way trip to take her and 9 hr. to go pick her up later this week. Awesome experience for her... for me...not so much!

You should have at least bought the ones w/ flowers or frogs

If FL is anything like PA was this past week, you ain't missing much
