Those followers that are horsey people please check out my other blog dedicated to my OTTB.
One nice fall day about 2 years ago I was mowing the grass. Two years ago mowing the grass was heaven. I had a 1 year old, 2 year old and 4 year old and I couldn't hear anyone cry with the mower running, ahhh peace and quiet. Opps did I just say that out loud? I would never ignore my crying babies, no, not me. Anyways, that is neither here nor there. Beautiful fall day, me, peace and quiet, and thoughts actual thoughts were going through my brain. "Wouldn't it be so cool to have a pumpkin patch?" (this is me talking to myself, just incase you were wondering) . "It would be so fun! Someday the kids could help out and it would be a little family business! That is such a great idea! I mean we have the land. Even the animals. What fun! I want to do that." Can you hear the excitement in my voice?
Well that is the begining of the end. If I get something in my head, no matter how hair brained it might be, I have a habit of following through and making it happen. There are some that may consider this a good thing. For my poor poor husband he would have to disagree with those people, strongly disagree, I might add.
So that is it, that is why that sign is sitting in my front yard. That is why my stress level is through the roof, my to do list has reached and all time record length and well my home, my childrens schooling and many other things have been placed on the back burner. I am going with the explination that my children seeing first hand either how to or how not to start a family business is more education than the public school could ever offer. An entrepenurial education. Yeah that one sounds good, right??
Come, come to our pumpkin patch, take a pony ride and pet the goats, swing on the tire swing, pick out a pumpkin and take a hay ride back to the corn maze, wander the corn a maze, eat a caramel apple or a personal pumpkin pie or both. Make some memories with your family.
Please otherwise it will be a lesson in what not to do :)
