This is how I have felt lately, except the things aren't stupid. You all know how it is when you have way to many irons in the fire! Poor Todd, after this weekend he will probably feel so neglected. Well, at least he will have clean socks and underwear!!!

Lindsey and the girls worked really hard getting their steers cleaned and ready for the judging. We were there at 5:30 this morning! Lindsey and Raynie's steers did not classify with the Santa Gertrudis class, so they will show in the morning with the All Breeds. (another 5:30 morning) This class will be much more competitive because of so many steers. I learned alot there yesterday and today. It is a big gamble because of the classifiers and judges. Lindsey is learning lots of responsibility and patience though. We may be headed for Houston in a few weeks. I'll miss her showing because I had to come back for work. Bummer!

It's almost showtime! Lindsey and Mr. Hendricks worked Saturday getting him all clipped and ready for the San Antonio Livestock Show this week. Lindsey will show Thursday and hopefully make the sale on Saturday. If not, we are headed to Houston. Todd is rubbing some Mane and Tail conditioner on the steer to make him shine. They will leave at 2:00 Tuesday morning.

I haven't painted much since Christmas, but last week I was asked to paint a rocking chair, 3 good sized paintings of construction vehicles for a little boy's room, a mirror, a bulletin board, Mason's board which is pictured above, and a boy's bedroom set! The boards pictured are just plain ceiling tiles. Looks like I will be painting again between supper, exercising, and grading papers. I taught myself to knit from youtube over the holidays and made one scarf. If you want to see shows that you watched growing up as kids, youtube is the place! Anyway, knitting will have to be put aside for awhile! Pictures will come later.
