Today the kids and I went over to my moms to help her go through some of her horse and vintage items she was ready to let go of.There are a few items I still have in my moms garage that I can't wait to come across,like my Ewok stuffed animal!However,today was not the day to find that....Yes,I am a Star Wars nerd.I proudly admit it.
Instead we came across a box of my old Breyer horses that kept Heidi and Wayland entertained while my mom and I worked.When I first opened the box I saw my moms old horse from the 50's and had to pull it out so Heidi wouldn't try to play with it.My mom said I could use it for Wayland's room decor so just another reason I can't wait to get to Alaska and set up his cowboy room!
Ollie got to come out and play too which was nice.I always feel bad about leaving him.He never did this before when I would left him but ever since I moved into my dads to help him out he cries and makes the most god awful sounds when I walk out the door(he much like my daughter I think are equally unhappy here and I'm working as hard as I can to get us up north asap).He could be happily snoring on the couch but the moment I go out to say get the mail he runs to the back yard and sits at the gate and makes this chattering dolphin-esque noise which I'm sure the neighbors think I'm torturing the poor guy!We didn't want to bring him over to my moms before because of this guy right here:
That is Fox Livingston and don't let his size fool you he is a stone face killa!Seriously he has killed a few dogs that have come onto the property.I think its because his dad,my old Corgi Bandit was attacked and killed by dogs that had come up to the ranch 10 years ago and Fox takes no chances now.Poor guy,he has issues.Fortunately him and Ollie got along splendidly and no blood or fur was shed.
Today also marks the 10 year anniversary of my fathers death.I can't believe its been that long already.I really wanted to share some fun photos I have of him as a kid from the 40s and 50s but they're packed away so I thought I'd just leave it as an honorable mention on my blog.I could probably ramble on some more but I promised myself I'd get some listings done tonight and its almost midnight!Yikes!Eh,who needs sleep anyway?
