Home, Sweet Home!

Oh man is it good to be back home!!! Obviously we had a lot of fun while we were in Branson, but I was very ready to get back home and see my puppies! All of which we did. 😉

We packed up the truck, said our goodbyes, and were on the road by about 1:30 pm yesterday. So we got home around 4:30, which wasn’t bad! But we ha d a lot to do when we got home! First we had to put the chickens outside (they were staying in our spare bedroom since it was so hot and I wasn’t going to be here all day to take care of them while we were gone) and start cleaning up the mess they made. That’s been a super long process that involved having to buy an air filter because all of the dust they created was really bothering my asthma.

But before we were able to do that we had to run to Tractor Supply to get more chicken feed, dog food, and cat litter. After that we made our way to the kennel to pick up the dogs. Haha for whatever reason the lady who runs it wasn’t there so we had to wait for a few minutes, but I was perfectly fine with that because I got to play with her goats again! But she didn’t take long to get there and get the whole dog situation squared away. Haha the dogs were sure happy to see us and didn’t even give the goats a thought as we were loading them into the truck! Pretty impressive for a group of border collies. 😉

After we picked them up we had to run back home, drop them off (but in the backyard because they all smelled terrible), and then we were off to Walmart to get the air filter thing I was talking about and a few groceries since we basically had no food at the house haha. So after we got home from all of that, Luke bathed the dogs while I did more work on the bedroom. I felt like I was in there forever but didn’t get a lot done haha. But it was getting late and I still needed to shower, so I did that and then Luke and I went to bed.

Luckily today though I was able to get that room mostly cleaned out. There is still a bit of a mess in there, but it’s sooo much better than it was yesterday! Today I also had to unpack everything, do a ridiculous amount of laundry and just get the house clean in general. But I got all of that accomplished, and even had some time to dye my hair! Haha it’s been a busy and productive day. 😉 But Luckily that means I shouldn’t have a lot to do tomorrow and will finally be able to relax a bit.

So yeah, just wanted to do a quick little update to let you know that we made it home in one piece and the dogs don’t hate us for leaving them in a kennel for almost 5 days haha. I’ve got a lot more to talk about for tomorrow though, so be on the lookout for that! Some exciting stuff is officially kicking off tomorrow. 🙂

But for now, I’ll wish you a very happy Saturday and be on my way, because I’ve still got some stuff I need to get done tonight. Until tomorrow!

Branson Adventures: Day 4

Today was our last full day here. Tomorrow, probably at some point in the morning we’re going to be heading bark home to Kansas. We’ve had a pretty good time here, but oh man do I miss my puppies! Haha I’m sure they’re doing fine, we haven’t gotten a call from the kennel or anything so that’s a good sign. 😉

Anyway, this morning I got to enjoy my breakfast and coffee on our front porch and hang out with Luke’s mom, before it got too crazy hot. We had a heat warning today and I believe it was the hottest day we’ve had while we’ve been here.

While we were hanging out Luke and my brother-in-law went to Walmart to replace the fishing stuff that got stolen yesterday. Honestly no one is too upset about losing the cheap fishing poles, it’s just my leatherman’s tool that literally everyone is upset about. Haha it kinda feels nice to know that everyone cares so much just because that thing meant so much to me. It still really sucks that some asshole stole it…

Anyway, once Luke and my brother-in-law got back from Walmart we got all of our fishing gear ready and then headed down to the river. I didn’t stay out long though. It was crazy hot out and we were under a heat advisory, and you all know how well I do in the heat. 😂 So after like, 15 minutes I went back up to the cabin haha.

Pretty much everyone else went off to do their own thing, so I was alone for awhile. I kinda started to get our stuff packed but up and in order so we don’t have to worry about it tomorrow, and then I just kinda chilled by myself and read a book. 🙂

Then this evening we had a big family cookout with like, over 20 people. Every one was grilling and hanging out and having a good time. But then a thunderstorm rolled in. Every one had to rush around to get everything off of the grills, put stuff inside, and round up all of the children. But once that was done a bunch of us just stood out in it and watched it. Hahaha we ended up getting soaking wet, but we stayed out in it the whole time!

Once the storm past we were able finish up our festivities. After everyone ate we went down to the river and swam for a little bit. Now we’re back in the cabin and getting ready to play some board games!

Happy Friday eve!
