And thus our yearly birthday bash begins! Tonight we celebrate with my in-laws for my father-in-law's birthday. Tomorrow we celebrate with my mom for hers. Tuesday we celebrate for mine!

Every year I post about my birthday, and it never gets old. My mom and father-in-law share a birthday, and two days later I share a birthday with my father-in-law's dad. We were birthday presents for each of our parents! I celebrated early with my father-in-law because we were only going to be in town … Continue reading Celebrating Our Joint Birthdays
My father-in-law caught a deer! No photos included, ya'll, because yuck. We went over on Sunday to see him, and he was in the porch, deer hung up, butchering it. It was pretty gory. Which, I thought it would be harder than it was to see the deer. But it really didn't bother me other … Continue reading Chickadees Eat Meat?
My in-laws were hit by the same storm, and thankfully my father-in-law was in town, not at home, or he would have lost his vehicle and been trapped. All photos taken by my husband.

Clogs on literally NOTHING, takes three or four tries to flush, overflows, runs continuously until you jiggle the handle... the works. No amount of additives or plunging has helped. My husband … Continue reading Behold! A Toilet at Last!
