Murphy's Day!

Hahaha ... 'Murphy' is such a funny guy!  He tried to hi-jack Mother's Day on me and he did a pretty good job! Before 8:00am this morning and about 5 minutes before my husband was done ... 'Murphy' cracked the rim on the sprayer and sent my hubby for a ride down the hillside!  This will be fun to fix tomorrow!

Shortly thereafter, he decided that this lil' heifer should have trouble calving.  All fine and dandy but she didn't really care for the situation.  Hence, I spent a good hour riding through the bush before getting her back to the corral.  Even tonight her lil' eyes were as big as saucers!  Hopefully she calms back down.

Then it was off to load flax seed and calibrate the tank and drill to FINALLY get to the field!  Once that was done, I had an enjoyable 2 hour drive to get parts, all the while missing my lunch!  :(

I returned with parts and the boys finally made it to the field this afternoon!  Alas, 'Murphy' stuck around and tested my husbands patience just a bit longer!  Murphy thought it was funny to plug some of the runs, mess with the run monitors and all and all, just give my poor hubby a few more grey hairs!

Despite all of that, no 'Murphy' can EVER hi-jack Mother's Day ... especially with my crew around!  Yes, it was a crazy, messed up day but it was still filled with love, believe it or not ... some laughter, and family time!  I have the best boys and the most wonderful husband and even if it takes screaming "Geez Louise" in unison at the top of our lungs when stuff goes wrong at least we can make ourselves laugh!  The treasures my children made tugged on my heart strings and their hugs and kisses topped my day!  I hope everyone enjoyed Mother's Day!
