There is nothing I love more than sugar, The Office & yard sales- so when we were out this morning hitting the yard sales- and ran arcoss this little number, you can imagine how hard Trav & I were laughing! (He had the day off and came out at 8:00AM to come treasure hunting with me, what a guy!) The funny thing was their sign of course, but they had no excuse that we could tell, for the misspelling! Now, I admit, I am a horrible speller, and I rarely spell check anything on my blog- but for Heaven's sakes, don't most people know how to spell - Yard??? I understand when people are from another country and are learning English and all that, but these people were definatly from Idaho- not 5,000 miles away. We laughed and laughed and laughed. Honestly, every time I look at this picture I smile, giggle and then laugh until I almost wet my pants. For some reason it just delights my soul and brings me something I haven't felt in awhile. Kind of like the "Mobing Sale" sign I found a few years ago.

So, most of the pregnant comments I hear are about how huge I am or how crazy I am to be on baby # 5, or how I have my hands full, or how I should learn how to prevent it from happening again- but today at a yard sale I encountered 2 sweet ladies who were aparently blind and super great liars! They went on and on about how from the back you couldn't even tell I was pregnant, how great I looked and how my face didn't even look puffy. I thanked them and said I would be hanging out with them for the remainder of the day because the rest of the planet thought I was a ginormous whale. They were cute, but awfully wrong- 30 extra pounds never looks good my friends, and I know it, but it sure was sweet of them to talk so sweetly for a few minutes! It was kind of a nice surprise considering strangers have had no filter lately!

Each year I have good intentions of growing a beautiful garden, but then real life sets in and things don't turn out to be so pretty. We grow stuff, but I don't think my heart has really been in it enough to give it the love and devotion it's needed. I don't even know when to plant stuff. Even after asking my MIL and getting a hand out from Zamzoes, I still don't care enough to even look at it. I made Trav plant today while I weeded. He had the day off so he and Grace had fun planting the seeds (I secretely didn't want to be held responsable for it failing this year!) It was cute to watch them together. I got my tomatoes in my Topsy Turvey and hope for a few this year. I realy love tomatoes. After we were done, we had to cover both garden beds with wire fencing stuff to keep the stupid cats from using it (and everything else around my house) as their personal litter box. They ruin parts of the garden every year- and honestly, I think I might swear in my mind when it happens. Probably even really bad words too. I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY hate the cats- so much that I've been plotting their death for years now. I haven't killed them yet because I just know I'll get caught and sent to jail or lose my kids or have to pay a billion dollars in fines, or end up on the news as the cool pregnant lady who went nuts and killed the neighborhood cats and then blogged about it and then got caught. Oh, how I wish they would stop pooping EVERYWHERE around every inch of my house and yard. I hope the Lord understands my evil thoughts come from YEARS and YEARS of cleaning up mounds of poop. So I pray something will grow this year- we shall see!
