Home Alone

Dan has left me. For five days at least, then he'll be back. He is at the Midwest Cadet Campout as a counselor. So that leaves me at home by myself with little to do. I dropped Dan off at camp on Saturday morning and he will be there until Wednesday. There are boys there from all over Iowa and a few neighboring states, but they are actually camping about 5 miles from our house. Sunday they had a morning service out at the camp and the families where invited, so my in-laws and I went out there and had lunch with Dan and saw where he was camping. They had only been there for a day, but his boys had already set up a nice camp, built a table, a teeter-totter, and dug a pit for a swimming pool. It seemed as if they were having fun.
Back on the home front, I have been doing the chores - feeding the calves and checking the cows daily. Since Dan fixed the pasture fence, I haven't had to chase cows again. Last week I chased them back into their pasture at least 5 or 6 times. Not much fun especially when you're 7 months pregnant. Not much work has been happening in the basement since last week was mainly focused on keeping the cows in. Which also means that no progress has been made on the baby room either. Some days I dream that I will wake up and walk into the spare room and it will be fully stocked with all the right baby necessities, but I guess it's going to take a little more work than that. Let me know if you want to help!
Four more weeks until I head back to school and seven more weeks (approximately) until our new addition arrives. For those of you who would like to see a new picture of my bump, which is growing nicely, wait a couple more days - Dan has the camera at camp.
