My life....as compared to others I know

I am married to a cowboy.  He makes our living by farming and he is a great farmer, but in his heart he is a cowboy.  I have friends who are married to professionals:  doctors, CPA's, and the like.  Our lives are completely different.  They schedule their lives, vacations, educational plans, activities atleast a year in advance.  I'm lucky to get to know what we might be doing this afternoon.  You see, at any time, the weather may change, some farming or ranching "emergency" (all the cows getting out) may happen.  Who knows.

Last night was one of those whimsical nights.  Somehow our whole family ended up at a friend's house.  They had some roping calves and some smaller beef calves in their arena (the ones just right for little boys to ride.)  And we had a rodeo of sorts.  The little boys found a rope and a bell and became "bull" riders for the night.  Even after coming off on their heads a few times, they still wanted more.  And the older boys did a little steer wrestling with the roping calves.  If I was a really good mom, I would have taken pictures, but alas I can't find my camera.

The whole thing just sort of makes me laugh.  Our life is whimsical, a little hectic looking, and often unplanned.  But sometimes we just end up doing really fun stuff.
