Early Morning Phone Calls!

My little sis called this morning at 6:30 am...

She sang me the Happy Birthday song! Tee Hee! Well, actually, she sang it to my adorable daughter, thinking it was me... So she had to sing twice... Thanks Sista! OH... and she gave me the heads up to stalk the UPS man! Today a very important package is arriving!!!! Chirp Chirp! A cricket is going to be in the house!

I am so excited...

Remember my Big Shot win? It has not arrived yet! It hasn't even shipped yet!! Bummer...
Thank goodness for crickets...

OH.. Then early morning call #2 was received at 7:30 am...

This one was from the Department of Ag. The INSPECTOR is coming to check out the meat freezers (for our natural lamb and beef meat sales business)... He does this every year.

Oopsy... That means I have to get out of my PJs!!!! DANG! I so wanted a PJ day!

Interview Recap:

I got home late after my interview last night... The interview was at 8pm, and I left here at 7:40 pm.. Keep in mind ON A NORMAL DAY it should only take 10 minutes MAX to get to that itty bitty town that is 7 miles away.. BUT TWO HUGE A** Tractors were in the road! And I mean 'in the road' . The don't take one lane... They take them all... So, after I finally got around them (very trick dodging the disks floundering in the back) I BEAT CHEEKS at close to 80 mph...

All for not. But I was on time!!!!!

They were running late, a half hour, and suggested I go to the BAR and get a soda... Excuse me? THE BAR on a Monday night? And me all dolled up and looking 'hot'??? I don't think so! I live in a rural area.. Where everyone knows your name...
Had I gone in that BAR the rumors would have been flying! So...
I sat outside in my car, thank goodness I had a scrappy magazine (Scrapbooks Etc.) and my cell phone! I chatted mostly with that silly sista I mentioned above.. Oh the jokes we came up with regarding the 'upcoming interview':

Things like:
Does this mean I can arrive at work 30 minutes late?
Or, oh don't worry, remember, I'm interviewing you too! And taking notes!
Or, heck, that soda at the bar? Yeah.. As in Jack and Soda!
Or, ya know, you never shoulda sent me to the Bar... Too much temptation there!

(It got worse.. she asked 'whata mean you have an interview and your at a bar?')...

So, in the interest of keeping it clean, I'll end it right there!

BTW: The interview was actually a lot of fun! Great people! Lots of laughing, chatting... All women of course... I like those gals! My Sista really got me in the mood....

Well, I better get ready for Mr. Inspector... Hope he's ok with the box of lambs in the garage!!!

Off I go. Gotta work... Well, I take that back... I've been working since 5am!

The ususal...

Breakfast and lunches made starting at 5am...
Kitchen cleaned
Fed the Bummer lambs at 6am (OK girls, I HEAR YOU! Photos are coming!)
Then the 'kid's chores' that they did not finish before catching the bus...

Water to the chicks
Free'd the chickens from their house
etc. etc. etc.

Get this! A storm is coming! Little bits of snow were pelting me in the face!

Crazy ol' Ranch Life!

Hi, Andi! A Cricut AND a Big Shot? Whatever will your family do when you become a Scrapping Diva and can't leave your new toys for a week? (heehee!) Sounds like the interview went well! :-)

I remember snow/ice storms in May in UPstate New York, but I don't ever remember them in Oregon.....oh, wait.....I was just toddling around then! :>

A Cricut?! Now that is a package worth stalking!! I love my chirping little bug! I'm itching for a Big Shot, but budget's been tightened and I don't see that happening for awhile...even with a treasured coupon! Have a chirpin' Great time with your newest toy!!

Up since 5am??!!! My alarm goes off at 5:40am and not only do I think that is an obnoxious hour, I beat the thing for fifteen to twenty minutes before I defiantly arise!! You always amaze me at how much you are able to get done!! :>

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDI!!!!!!!!
