Home from road trip..

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Hi..we are home from our road trip to was a long day with lots of glitches.

First a cow was calving when we got done morning chores so we weren't sure if we'd go...then she finally calved so we were late leaving...

..We stopped at Plentywood for snacks and then headed to Williston...we did some shopping first then went to hubby's favorite pie place and it wasn't open :( Then over to Walmart where I started shopping and hubby went for a snack..when we met up again he still didn't get his snack..he said the line up was too long :( So with out finding any food hubby was not a happy camper :( So I hurried and finished shopping where I couldn't find most of what I was looking for (well at least I saved money and didn't bring home too much stuff)

Then we popped over to buy some beer and head back to Plentywood for supper... well we went to one of our favorite places and the service was horrible..a new waitress lost our order and then it took least she gave us the salads for free (although hubby's salad came with his meal)

You'd think that was enough but there was the border the agent told us we had too much beer (and have never been told that before...) and the highway home was rough and broken up...we had gone down on the grid roads...'s been a long and frustrating day..not the fun get away we were hoping for!!

On the plus side it was very warm and sunny..Williston has hardly any snow and we did see one farmer out seeding...luckily when we got home no other cows had calved and all seemed fine on the home front..that would have been the cherry on top if we had lost a calf!!

Perhaps just too over tired and stressed to enjoy the get away...oh it just feels like one more thing to cross of the list of stuff to's been one of those years!!

Better run..almost time for the midnight check and then off to bed and I'm pooped!!

Thanks for dropping by and for all your kind comments..Keep on Sparkin'

    Awww...What a day! Doesn't that just figure. Seems like everytime we plan something special something goes wrong to ruin it. You had many things go wrong.
    I'm wondering if the border guys were just wanting some beer to drink. Maybe they were planning a party that night. Seems like a trivial thing for them to worry about doesn't it?
    Hope you have a nicer weekend coming up.

    Maybe the change of scenery was refreshing anyway.

    It seems like you two never have any really "free" time. Did you both grow up on farms? And can farmers ever take a vacation? I know it would mean that someone else would have to stay there and do all the work. It sounds like a very difficult life. Can you at least look forward to retirement? Or do farmers retire? I know there are rewards... like the calving... but even those are stressful times. I worry about you, Donna.

    wish you had a better day life seems very hard lately for all of us and we cant enjoy as much when we are tired sad or mad and especially when we are stressed . Hopefully with a good sleep things will seem better. I had a bad day yesterday and could not find any enjoyment in my life. after 12 plus hours of sleep i fell different but still . hope after a good sleep you find some enjoyment. border patrol way funny bothering people about to much beer and letting terrosrist into the country .
