Knolltop Farm Wife

Welcome to my blog! I'm a wife, mother of four and a self-employed freelance writer. I live on a dairy farm with my family and I enjoy sharing our life with family, friends and anyone else who wants to visit the farm. There's no telling what the I will write about from day to day, but hopefully you'll be enriched when you stop by! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

It's Time!

This is ridicules that I haven't posted a blog since April! Ahhhh!

I guess that Dairy Agenda Today blog gets all the attention. Not that I haven't been compelled to post something here, almost every day there is something that occurs to me to post, but I just keep running out of time.  And of course I have a gillion pictures that I want to post but it seems whenever I post pictures here, they take forever to upload and I get frustrated! Boy does it feel good to get that off my chest!

Now, onto the matter at hand, why I'm blogging today. First off I need to get my jump start, it's a sunny morning on the Knolltop! It's going to be a beautiful day, just the kind of day I needed to get the mowing done since my grounds crew has gone back to school.

My fantasy football team, The Hart-Throbs is off and running and is the cause of upheaval in the family. I'm not sure it's worth it.

I must have the dream team and don't even know it.  Luke wants two of my players and the other night when I told him "NO, I'm not giving you Greg Jennings," he sat on the couch and pouted. An 18 year old pouting is not a pretty site. All the while I'm receiving texts from my nephew who wants Larry Fitzgerald. He thought I was going to be a pushover for his sweet messages, "I love you Aunt Lissa" and "I love your red hair Aunt Lissa." He soon discovered I'm not quite the soft touch he wanted me to be, but I will admit, he's getting to me.

If that's not enough, Jake is standing around coaching me on who to trade and who to keep. I trusted him until last night when he said, "Don't give Larry to Adam, trade him to Luke so then Luke will give me Michael Vick."

I would ask my football fanatic brother but he's got a team in the league too, so there is no way I'm asking him for advice. I feel like I'm inside the beltway where every deal comes with strings attached!

Consequently it's a delicate balance between keeping peace in the family and winning fantasy football. Now for the rest of the week I have to mull over keeping Larry or trading him and how will I get Michael Vick from Luke, although I have to admit, Peter Rivers is doing quite well for me.....
