We did not go to Payson as a family, as planned for this Wednesday my husband took off work. Instead, we bought a riding lawn mower off Craigslist and I traded Jed Clampett, my 7 month old Nubian buck for a 7 month old Nubian doe off Craigslist. And, most scandalizing of all, I took my boys to an arcade for an hour!
I’m bummed we didn’t go to Payson, but seeing my husband with his John Deere hat on, riding his steal-of-a-deal John Deere X320, and getting a nice doe to breed with my buck made me happy.
I am just loving having goats! Jed and Duke were fun and playful. I was a little sad to see Jed go. Darla, our new doe, is so small and sweet. Duke and Darla. Sounds right. Can’t wait to have kids!!!!
Expectation is a problematic thing. Life would be dull if I didn’t have times of anticipating something I desire. But with expectation comes the high likelihood of disappointment. The solution, I think, is not to exclude anticipation or expectation, but to be willing to receive whatever comes as for my good.
