This will be short but sweet:

On Valentine’s Day, my husband Eric and I took my parents, two of our kids, and one of their significant others for a fabulous meal in Nowheresville. As we ate, I kept having to go to the bathroom. There was just this incredible pressure feeling across my mid-abdomen. I was beginning to get worried, although it didn’t stop me from having cheesecake with strawberries for dessert.

On my last bathroom visit, I looked down at my skivvies. I’d worn cute ones, with a little button and bow in the BACK, but now I realized they were without a doubt in the front. I kicked off my boots and reversed the undies, and WADDYA know but suddenly I didn’t feel a “pressing” need to tinkle any more.

Eric told me that they say the mind is the first thing to go.

That’s all I’ve got.


p.s. Maybe that’s not all I’ve got 😉 The picture is of Eric with Maisie, the bottle-fed calf my parents are raising. They borrowed a horse trailer and brought her to Nowheresville because she gets a bottle three times a day. She thinks she is a dog, and once ran off with two of the dogs when we weren’t looking. We ran all over creation looking for that calf. I had visions of coyote-food in my head, but I ultimately found her in the forest in a clearing, happy and calm. She is a cutie!

  1. Oh, how I love these posts! They make me feel so much better about some of the silly things that I do! 😀

  2. As soon as I read the title to this one I figured Eric must have done something crazy again……..I was surprised. Hahahahaha, I hope you and “the General” are doing great. You need to bring Maisie here to visit our donkey, Moonlight Poet sometime.

  3. I can’t wait until you’re running around chasing that soon to be 800 pound “dog”! Our bull is over 1000 pounds and thinks he should have his head scratched on a regular basis. One of the 800 pound calves loves to butt Leland not realizing she is no longer a tiny thing where it was CUTE. They sure are entertaining, aren’t they!!

    Second time I have had a good laugh about this one.
    The third time you made a trip to the bathroom at dinner I was definitely getting worried about you!
