not a very exciting post.

So here's your Sunday update on Annie and I. I'm in the process of painting Annie's room for her birthday. This is the first room I'll be painting in this house. Not sure I'll do another. The sanding alone is a lot. Our dear Aunt Leslie is sending Annie curtains and a bed spread from one of her rooms she recently updated. To say I'm excited is an understatement. Leslie is known for her great taste and beautiful things, so I can't wait to see it. Annie's Aunt Debbie is supplying a beautiful bed frame and a mattress to go in it. It's unbelievable to me sometimes how generous and amazing people can be. There's no way I could afford all these things for Annie. Her room is currently unused. Annie doesn't like to even go in it. I'm hoping this update will change that. As it was I didn't like going in there either. Imagine Flesh toned walls and grayed flesh tones on the woodwork. With dark wood furniture and a dingy old carpet. Pretty much the whole house is like this, but we've managed to hide that fact somewhat downstairs. I kinda ran out of things to make the upstairs look nice.
We have an injured chicken staying in our den. She was scalped by a turkey. Who knows if she'll live or not. Things are looking better since I got her inside away from the turkey. We may be eating turkey sooner than I thought.
We tried to go on a walk to let the chicken rest (Annie insists on staying right by her side). It ended with me carrying Annie and her bike while holding the leash that Banjo was trying to pull my arm off with. It was the kind of walk where all I wanted to do was cry because I had no help and no other way to get home. I did try leaving the bike and Annie lost it. She fell at the playground and refused to walk. Grrr.
Lord, please send me a husband. No joke I really want one.

That's it for today.
