I was still really too weak to get away for the weekend, but it was the best I had felt in many months, so we headed to the Northeast region of Oklahoma to check out this property.
Wild Woman, on your stinky bed of death, did you forget you had already found a place? You know, the Prairie House with wild mustangs and views that made your knees weak?
Um no, I did not. I suppose I owe you an update. Someone else came along and bought the Prairie House before we could sell our ranch. We had a buyer, but we could not come to terms. Not even close.
I might have cried.
But I didn't.
The Paxil wouldn't let me.
Seriously, I'm okay with it, though I do still think about it. I mean, wild mustangs!
Anyway, back to the trip, we did a little junkin' while we were there. My goal was to find a few vintage items I have in mind for my Christmas decorating this year. Since the nest is empty, I am going simple. The kids have always been the ones to drag the trees out of storage and decorate. My job was to unwrap the ornaments. No ornaments this year, only dump trucks and tomato cages.
The highlight of the trip was seeing our son, Jonathan. It was so good to see his face and hold him close. To hear his voice. Sometimes I still see him as a little boy. Thankful doesn't even begin to cover what I feel for our relationship. To be accepted despite the calamity, I do not take it lightly.
Okay, let me wipe my snotty nose and move on. MM took our picture while we were waiting for our burgers at Steak n Shake. Not exactly Paleo, but I was weak and needed those skinny fries with mustard. As most of you know, I have photographic issues. What is up with my head tilt? I could have sworn we were cheek to cheek, not top of head to cheek. I swear, maybe I need to practice these things. Is there a course I can take? Basic Photo Pose 101: Learn Not to Embarrass Your Children on FB.
What you cannot see are my baggy britches. During these last few months, they went from skinny jeans to Snoop Dogg drawers. It was ridiculous. I was walking around holding them up, because they literally were threatening to drop to my ankles. Honestly, how's a brother do it?
It was worth all the stares. I had a glorious weekend.
And because I have been watching The Polar Express for the past two days and cannot get this tune out of my head, I leave you with this. You're welcome.
HOT! HOT! HOT! WE GOT IT!
Just in case you don't already know, we have some wonderful books of poetry available this season from our fellow Xangans. Check them out.
Aww, I hate to hear that about Prairie House. I thought maybe you two had just changed your minds and decided to stay put.
I love Zakiah's book. I've lost count of how many times I've read it now. I have to hold off on ordering John's until I know for sure where I'll be living in the next month or so. The postal service sucks around here, especially when it comes to forwarding mail to new addresses.
And I completely relate to the saggy jeans. I dropped about 40 pounds this past month. Turns out I can't eat when I'm stressed.
It's always wonderful to feel closer and much loved by our children. Especially when we have overcome obstacles we didn't think we could. You both look happy, and I'm doubly happy for you. And you, my dearest cowgirl... Look breath-takingly beautiful!
I have that same trouble; belts don't help. It's good to see the two of you together. I'm pretty sure you're the only person who really minds the head-tilt. : ) It makes me feel better about the world just to know there are people like you in it.
That picture of you with Jonathan was worth every mile you traveled and every smile you smiled.
The video was wonderful. I have never seen that before and I sat here with my mouth open. Thank you for the plug about my book Tamy. You are such a dear friend. Another sweetheart of a friend posted about my book, and made me cry. He lives in Indonesia and I cannot begin to tell you how he made me feel.Here is a link of @roudyhou...http://rudyhou.xanga.com/769803691/personal-thoughts-amorous-words/Please check it out if you have a minute to spare.
I think you should just get some suspenders and rock a different look. You look cute in your baggy shirt and flippy hair, next to your handsome Jonathan! I've thought of you alot lately, especially on Thanksgiving when my college girl ended up somewhere near Oklahoma City. She'd probably love to help you on your ranch! (If she could move!) Anyway, I hope everything works out for you to get a new property...also that you'll continue to feel better before you wither away to nothin'!

I came here yesterday but It was too late for me ( more than midnight and I was tired ) . So here I am . I am sorry your dream of the house in a prairie gone away bought by someone else .I imagine your deception.
But what surprised me is your youth on the picture : a nice young woman and It is hard to believe you are weak. So I understand Tamy you have low spirit at this hard transitory time but I can reassure you ,you are young and beautiful and have no fear to go ahead .
Christmas : this is in the hearts this is happens and not too much in the vain decorations . Do not worry with that .
