the pig leaves for the fair today. i am actually fighting back tears right now. pathetic, i know. i've been pretty good so far today. we all had dentist appts. so that kept my mind off of the day. we are trying to get things together so they can leave around 3:30.
what's really funny is alex is totally fine with it. here's the conversation we had yesterday:
ME: well, you know that half the money you get will go into your savings account. at least half.
Alex: conrad said that pigs brought like $500 at the auction last year.
Me: don't count on it. you don't know for sure how much you will get, so don't get your hopes up.
A: well, she has really big hams, and they are really all muscle. just a little fat, so that should be a good thing right? not too much fat, but enough to make them taste good. grandma says fat makes the meat taste better.
Me: STOP TALKING LIKE THAT!!!! i think i'm going to be sick.
yeah, i think he's going to be fine. i'm going to be the one crying hysterically in the corner.
we are taking some pictures today, so hopefully i'll get some up soon!
