I said it, and I mean it, all Fred has to do is leave the house for over twenty four hours and everything goes to shut.
Jill said I was yelling at Jake in my sleep. "I told you to shut up, boy...!" Half the night.
Jake says he dreamt I came in his room and yelled at him that he was supposed to bake a cake before he went to bed, so he got up and wandered around the kitchen half the night looking for a cake mix before he realized it was a dream.
I told you the power went off, well apparently at some point Bear got mad because he couldn't get water out of his water nipple so he busted it off.
So when the power came back on his water line was spewing water and he had more than he could drink, until I went out there at ten a.m. to feed the momma pig.
I cut the water off and capped the line but when I went to turn it back on...no water. The points were fried. So I had to rush to the hardware store and buy a new pressure switch and a new pvc set up for Bear's waterer. Got the pump fixed and just as I set in to fix Bear's waterer the sky opened up and tried to drown me.
Jill had to be work at eleven and she asked if she could take my truck.
"It's gets through the mud better mom, it's bigger." I know this to be true, so I let her.
When I discovered that I had to go to the hardware store I went out to get in her truck and find the gas needle pointing straight at empty.
It was not about mud, it was about finances. She needed my pusholine, not my truck, but borrowing the truck was the easiest way to get it.
So I raced to the little mexican store where I was informed that due to the power outage last night the computer for the gas pumps had to be reset and only the owner knew how to do it or some crap so I had to drive seven miles to town with my heart in my mouth expecting at any second for the truck to start coughing and burping and leave me sitting on the side of the road.
I made it, got my gas, got my parts and all is right with the world again for the moment, but I shudder to think what tomorrow holds.
