This n That

The past few days have been a mixture of a bad head cold and just not feeling the best and a trip to my mother in laws. Williams mom lives a 2 hour drive from here and she had a holiday get together. Since William is in California and not able to make it he ask me if I would go. My plan was to go early and visit with his mom and leave before the crowd arrived. I ended up staying longer though I tried not to get to close to anyone and give them my cold. William has 5 brothers and they all have grown children with children so there was a big crowd. After getting back home I found Sonya having some pre labor pains. Her baby or babies were moving around arranging themselves for real labor. She was so uncomfortable that I sat with her a couple of hours and rubbed her back. DiDi decided if she moaned I would feel sorry for her too. I spent part of the night sitting in a smelly stall with 2 goat heads in my lap and rubbing their backs while they moaned. Bridie who isn't pregnant decided she would stand behind me and rub my head with hers and chew on my hair. Spent most of the time laughing as Bridie was tickling my neck. Am hoping Sonya will just go on into labor and get it over with. Last year she just popped her baby out with no warning or anything. This year she is whinny and clingy. She wants you right there with her all the time. Christmas Cocoa is now a week old! She is running and jumping and so cute! Hope everyone had a great weekend and this week brings you wonderful blessings. I am off to clear my desk and pay some bills. I also have some soap and calendar orders to get out. I will be mailing the winners of the contest prizes today also. Have a great day!

Oh Peggy...I'm so sorry you're sick. Thanks for the update and new pics on my godkid CC. She's such a cutie! I had to laugh about Birdie because I have one cat who sits behind me on the sofa and gives me hair-dos.lol Hope you feel better soon! Happy New Year!...Debbie

Hi Peggy,
I hope your cold is better. It always is as soothing to me as it is to the animals when I sit and rub/pet them.
Christmas Cocoa is a big girl! and a cutie.
Have a great day.

Hope another day has helped with your cold, and hope sitting out with the girls didn't give you a new chill. You certainly had your hands full with everything this weekend!

I know how you feel about layovers. Justin does the same thing, he wants to talk all day but I have other stuff to do.

Hope you get to feelin' better. I bet your 'baby' goats are precious. My dad brought home a kid one time and we 'kid's' had a blast with him. I've wanted a whole slew of them since.

Oh, little Cocoa is absolutely adorable!! He'll soon have little goat friends to play with! I'm so sorry you had to stay up and comfort your other pregnant goats, but I think you are wonderful for sitting with them like that. You're a good shepherdess!

Christy said...

That sounds so nice, to sit and comfort your goats! I hope you get lots of cute babies.
