"Yes, what is it?"
"Mom.. I can't sleep. Can I watch TV?"
"No way, it is a school night. You get back to bed."
"I can't sleep, can I sleep in your room?"
"Sure but be quite and go to sleep."
6:00pm: "Big Cowpoke go to your room, you are in big trouble!"
"Okay........MOM......COME IN HERE. Look what happened in my room last night. I don't know what happened."
"What the........oh my goodness........why didn't you tell me you got sick last night?" Puke all over his pillow and bed.
"I didn't know I was sick."
6:45pm: Little Cowpoke was standing at my garage door, "Momma, I just poo pooed."
"Yeah, good for you, where are your pants? Where did you poo poo?"
"Momma, Iz just poo pooed in da mini van" Really big smile.
"You did WHAT? You better show me."
Followed Little Cowpoke outside and to my van, which was parked in the middle of the driveway. And sure enough there were three big poo poos on the floor of my new mini van. Oh, that boy's bottom was still bare and he had the biggest grin on his face like he just did the most wonderful thing ever. But don't worry, that smile didn't last long. And soon he was running for the house door.
7:30am: I was in the barn finishing up feeding horses. I have two that I keep inside and feed twice a day. Ozzie had finished eating and I decided I had some time to do some showmanship work. I worked on some showmanship for about 5 minutes. We had trotted off, set up and done a 180. Then I was about to trot off again when all of a sudden Ozzie freaked out . He did it so fast that I didn't even move. All I saw was dirt and a hoof right in my face. It was so close to my face that I got wet barn dirt in my right ear, in my hair, and in my eyes and mouth. Not yummy. Then when Ozzie got to the end of my lead rope, he simply stopped, turned and looked at me like, "What?" Yeah he so got lunged until his veins were big and sweat was coming off his neck. I would say he was feeling a big frisky this morning. Too bad I was not quite up to his energy level being that I was awake at 3 am.
Now if I could only get Mr. Cowboy to come home and tame some of these wild Cowpokes I would be in business. I am grateful that two of the three are in bed and I am about to hit the sack my self. Now I did not include that Big Cowpoke had a half day of school today. He was home at 12:30 pm. Little Cowpoke has been suffering from middle child syndrome and is arguing with everyone. So, I was the referee today too. I had many times today when All four of us were sent to our rooms. I am just happy that my van doesn't smell like poo poo. Thank goodness. At least Little Cowpoke told me and I didn't have that just sitting in my van, in the heat, cooking, for a few days. That would have been lovely. Now in no particular order, here are the culprits of the day's events.
