Home again, home again, jiggity jig

(And we even came back with fat pig: some leftover ribs from Dreamland! Mmmm.) Back! Home! Tired! Surrounded by piles of dirty, sandy laundry! And wired-for-sound kids! And a very happy dog, bounding from person to person to insure we're never EVER leaving her again!

A better and more thorough update to come (including Things That Were Bizarre, Yet Seen Nonetheless! and Funny Topics That May Not Be Funny When You Have 100 Miles To The Next Rest Stop And Your Brain Is Malfunctioning! and my personal favorite, Things I'd Do Differently, Including Gas Station Snacks I Shouldn't Have Eaten!) and the post will have pictures of a

MIRACULOUS BABY HORSE THAT WAS BORN HOURS BEFORE OUR ARRIVAL AT THE BFFS*

and an amazing book I hate to recommend (based on who wrote it) but will rec nonetheless because it elegantly and eloquently laid out bare all the things I've tried (clumsily) to articulate about religion. But first I must pour myself some water, stretch my legs, and begin sorting through laundry and newspapers piled at my front door by the dog sitter.

<3 <3 <3 <3 (If I missed something important that you want me to know about, now is the time to link! Speak now or...) :*

* miraculous because Caroline wasn't known to be pregnant! Didn't appear pregnant! Has been living with a toothless gelding for 11 months! In conclusion: a new religion based on the foal starts now. We meet whenever, and instead of sacramental water, there's juice for the kids and cocktails for the adults. :D

... a new religion based on the foal starts now.

Finally!
A religion I can get behind - except not too close, because I might get kicked ...

Hahahahaha! No, no, the stepfather (ha! We'll change Doc' name to Joseph STAT) is maybe the one horse in the world that you can run up behind and play drums on his hinter without him batting an eye. The calmest (and sweetest) little family.

There will be required nose-bags filled with oats for the yearly feast commemorating Baby Miracle's birth...

Does the new religion need any priests. I might know some. But I do NOT clean up horse poo. Not even for miraculous foals.

p.s. MISSED YOU SO MUCH!

No, no, see, the horse poo becomes One with the Earth, so we let it fall where it may. Om.

YOU DID?!?! D'aww!! *bats at you* I hope you and Essene are well!! *heart heart heart*

And when we die, we move to the next life, Coltopia! (Not to be confused with Fillyopolis, which is the highest plane of existence that can only be achieved through peaceful nuzzling.)

HI LYNNE!!! *hug squish smooch*

Hahahahaha, you pretty much described me and the fam staring at that cute little guy. Geeeeee, when he nibbled (toothless - a baby's mouth!) on my fingers and I could feel his fuzzy/furry leetle chin??? <3 <3 <3

I JUST sent you an email, actually! hahaha. I'll post a more thorough description come Monday morn, with pictures, too! Oh, I hope you have fun in DC! Pack sunscreen! And drink lots of water! My folks just got back and had a terrific time. (There are some wings in the Smithsonian that are closed temporarily while they rebuild some things. THis was two weeks ago, so it may be back to normal...)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
