Mostly dry

Last night we were out of pull-ups. Brother has never managed to stay dry during the night but last night we had no choice. It was late, we were out of pull-ups and I wasn't going to drive a 40 mile round trip to get some from Wal-mart. So I loaded up his bed with towels, promised him he could come get me and I'd go to the bathroom with him, left the bathroom light on and put 2 pair of underware on him.

He came and got me at 2:00, 3:30 and 3:36 LOL and he was dry every time. I woke him up late this morning because I got up late. He was wet when I went to wake him up but I kind of feel it was somewhat my fault for letting him sleep later than usual. I told him I was super proud of him for coming to get me though.

We will get there I'm sure. No more pull-ups!!!

And in other mostly dry didn't rain last night! The first night in about a week it didn't rain. We are no where near as wet as the poor people in Iowa and no where near a river anyway so no flooding but harvest is put on hold until the ground dries up. My dad tried to cut Sunday but he got stuck and it's rained everyday since then at least once a day, sometimes more. I hate to gripe too much because one day it will quit raining and not start again but dang it!! it needs to stop for at least a week or two.

Harvest is here!

Harvest started today!! Woot! Brother was beyond thrilled, he told my mom "this is the BEST day of my life! Papa is cutting's awesome!" LOL I happened to be at my mom's for a few minutes today and saw Brother on the combine with my dad so I snapped a few pictures, here's my favorite. No the cobmine is NOT running LOL He's not driving!

I think I shouldn't quit my day job

Dh and brother both really needed hair cuts recently, but our hair cutter lady was on vacation and she hasn't called me back yet, so they were both looking kind of shaggy.

I had the brilliant idea that I could buy some trimmers and cut it my self! Save time and money, right? The trimmer set was $25 so that would pay for itself in just a few uses.

So night before last we took the plunge! I cut dh's hair then brothers hair. Dh's doesn't look too bad, it's not as short as he would have liked but I was a little nervous since it was my first time and all. I think I will be better next time.

Brother also doesn't look too bad, but I did something wrong with the front of his hair. I can't figure out exactly what is wrong but it just doesn't look right. Oh, and please don't look too closely at his side of his hair is shorter than the other above his ears! LOL

Oh, well, at least it's summer and no one cares, right. And more's not MY hair!!
