Right now, there are a ton of problems at our house.
Know what our problems are? The BEST problems. Every one of them represents how much rain we have had in the last three weeks.
We can't go over thirty miles per hour down our road.
Our drive resembles a swamp.
We are pulling each other out of the mud every other day. My floor is a muddy mess. The dogs are filthy. The pens are sludge. We got kicked out of the line at the car wash for having too much mud.
The arena is too wet for practicing. The horses are leaving LARGE prints in my yard.
Between the water in the terraces and the green grass, there is no reason for the horses to come into the sludge and mud pens. We have only seen them from the road for over a week.
The pigs wallowed their way out of the pens.
The yard looks like it needs a swather. There are wind rows.
I have to admit, it's a foreign feeling to have so much water. It does come with a few issues but, the good far outweighs the bad. Next person who complains to me about the mud is going to get THE MOST annoying pep talk about giving up complaining and embracing the positive. That's right, I will make it RAIN happy news on you. One person at a time, I am turning the complainer's tide.
** I can name about ten people who will avoid me like the plague in order to avoid being subjected to my cheerful nature. Im'ma hunt you down.
