There. I said it.
I hate being sick. Whether it is just a cold or whatever. I hate it.
I hate Nyquil. I hate not feeling like doing anything. I hate coughing my head off.
So I talked to Doug last night about going on our annual Farm Tour trip. It is always the first Saturday in October. We started going when Keira was three and we've gone almost every year since. The kids really enjoy it and it is fun to see them having so much fun.
We usually get to pet some farm animals and go on a hay ride. Last year we got to sample some deep fried turkey from the turkey farm that we ride bikes past on the trail. It was yummy. One year there were little mini tractors that the kids could pedal around on. And there is always fun stuff for the kids to do.
Anyway, I slept until 9:30 this morning, got up because I had to pee really bad, and told Doug that I wasn't going to be able to go on the tour, but he should go ahead if he wanted to. I didn't really know if he would take the kids or if he would just go to work early, which was what his original plans were for today.
But then I heard everyone scurrying around downstairs, getting old shoes on, grabbing bottled water and warm jackets, and heading out the door. So I got out of bed to say goodbye. I gave Doug the map and info on the Farm Tour and the pocket camera. I asked him to please please please take pictures for me. Or let Keira take some. Or Nick. Or all of the above.
So they left.
And then I remembered Alex was supposed to pull the name of my giveaway winner. But he's not here. He's Farm Touring with Daddy. And I didn't want to wait until they got home because, frankly, I might forget by then. So I wrote all the names on pieces of paper and threw them in a basket. And here's the name I pulled out ...
My good real-life friend, Laura, is the winner! She writes over at Life Happens and Girl Talk. Here's what she wrote about her strangest gift ...
I'm going to have to go with kitchen utensils. This may not seem like it is that strange but anyone who truly knows me would not walk through a store and look at the kitchen utensils and think "Hey. Now that would be a GREAT gift for Laura!" (I hate cooking... and the kitchen in general.)
So there you have it. Laura, let me know if you want a Target or a Walmart gift card and I'll get it out to you right away. Well, as soon as I feel well enough to go buy it. :) Which will hopefully be soon. I don't like being a couch potato.
Now I'm going to take advantage of no one being here and go soak in the tub for a bit. I never get to do that anymore.
Hope ya'll have a great weekend!
