Farmwife - I bet you'd be watching the tv if Cow-tipping was an olympic sports!
I can just watch my US congress in action and get the same affect!

On a lighter note, my half-brother came by yesterday afternoon - he lives about 3 hours away and had to go back up past Watertown (another 4 hours past me) to get his boat which he left there after his vacation last week when he lost a wheel hub/bearing.....

Anywho- he got here in the afternoon, in time for the rain to have disappeared, then I grabbed my Mom and daughter and we went out for a nice 2-3 hour ride up and down the Mohawk River!.....then he spent the night before heading out at the crack of dawn....

Nice visit!

ps - hope Sarah is ok!!!

Hey girls! Got some downtime on vacation and thought I would get caught up.

Paso and Ang: can your kids get any cuter?

Who carries money anymore? Debit or credit! I want pretty money.

Bully Aussies! Beat USA in womens 400 realy in swimming!

Dusty: heard on the Olympics broadcast today the Australians hold the world record for longest and I think largest pub crawl...could you get behing that?

Catherine: glad sarah is feeling better

My baby turned 18 today...she can't drink legally yet but to celebrate she bought a lottery ticket (legally)(didn't tell her our religion frowns on gambling...but sure if I hit the jackpot and tithed the winnings that would be o.k. with them) and drove her sisters for the first time (previously had jr license so couldn't). Damn I am getting old...quiet farmwife.

Check in with you guys in a few days. Stay well!

Late response, but yes Amy does have a great sense of humour and she did get some stickers. When we thought her tummy ache was simple constipation she called it Bob in hopes the hard stool would turn into a blob. Now she talks to him, telling him to leave her alone. Lol

Crohnsinct- Tell your baby girl a late happy B-day from me.
I'd rather have my kid buy lotto tickets than liquor!!!
Of course that could untimely lead to a life of a gambling addition.
You know, never mind!!


On to the fine art of Cow Skiing!

It's way more easier then cow tippin.
RULES

1- No liquor should be involved. EVER
2- This works best in the cement poo covered barnyard.
Go just after the cows have been their awhile.
One cow can poo 100 lbs. a day.
3 Walk to a cow.
4- Grab tail of cow.
5- Hold on to tail as long as you can
6- KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!!!!

I've never done this because I like to keep clean.
My hubby does not do this because I do his laundry!!!

Thanks Dusty but the 18th birthday was gaby's (one of my non Crohnies), Olivia's older sister. I know...hard to believe I have other children!

Tess: She is going ot college in CT but they posted all the room assignments and roomates etc on the kids school pages so we were stalking the page at midnight. She got in a very social and cool dorm. She is in a suite with 4 double rooms a bathroom with two showers and toilets (like that accomodation for our Aussie friend) and a common sitting room. She is totally psyched and I guess since she is shy (just like mom) it is good because she will meet lots of people but am I really paying all this money for her to meet people??????? I might be quite happy with a studying hermit

OMG! I knew I was confused when I was reading through all these posts but that just goes to show how mashed my brain really is! I wonder if having kids with Crohn's gives you shit for brains? You know, like when you are pregnant you have placenta brain. Well that's my excuse and I am sticking with it!

Happy Birthday Gaby, the lost child of crohnsinct...well one of them anyway!

Aww, but they are soooo cute! Trying to convince my husband to get a second dog but he's saying NO! (But, to be fair, he does almost all the poop & scooping, walking, training, etc. so I can't argue too much! )


Dusty - I don't think it's having kids with crohns that gives you 'shit for brains'; it's just having kids and a husband that does it!


Crohnsinct - Gosh, I wish I were going to university now! These dorms now are incredible... Emily chose to stay home (because she didn't want to eat 'junk food' every day! Farmwife - either my cooking's not so bad OR it's sooo bad that it creates its own 'portion' control! ) But, the dorm we looked at was pretty nice! Huge, shared entertainment room, big screen tv, x-box, playstation, etc., tons of couches, a small gym and laundry room on each floor, etc.!
