I bet none of yall ever had this conversation...

..with your teenager!

Teenager: "I'm going to bed as soon as I am done with supper." (6:30pm)
Me: NO WAY! You'll get up too early.
T: Oh please Mama, I am so tired!
Me: Seriously, stay up until 8 at least because I don't feel good and I'd like to sleep at least until 5 in the morning if possible. (He might get up before 5, and he might not, but I didnt want to risk it.)
T: I CAN'T! OH please, don't do this to me. I have to go to bed NOW!
Me: OK, I'll compromise. You can go to bed at 7:45.
T: ***Wails softly...** I can't do it!!! That is just way too late to stay up!
Dad says in his deep sickly voice: You can do it.


Erinn and I got her goat clipped. He looks HILARIOUS! Like a skinny little poodle puppy. She took a picture and will probably post it on her blog tomorrow.
I got the hardest part done on Mooky's goat - his head and neck. Mooky couldn't help me much because he felt really sick, so we stopped at that point since I wasn't feeling so great either. Tomorrow we'll put him on the milk stand and finish him off. At least the weather is supposed to be nice again!
Kris has the most terrible chest congestion, and is very sick. Praying that he doesn't have to start on antibiotics...

I know you're not feeling well, but when you get the chance...go to my blog and comment on just what your day includes when getting up at 4AM!! ;)
P.s. I would LOVE to see what the entire day's schedule includes, but will be very thankful for whatever you write down :)
