The Girl Who Blogs About Goats (and Foxes and Mommies and George Clooney)
We went to a pumpkin patch... but didn't see the pumpkins. Instead, we fed goats. And did some other stuff, but the pictures weren't that great. I have an inordinate number of goats on this blog. No time to search them all out now, but I think I will be adding a goat label soon.
So, as I have mentioned in the past, there is not much even-keeled in me, this life. I love it or hate it, all or nothing, black or white. So my absence is also in part due to my diving headlong into the Events Manager position for a local (but part of a national) mothers' group. It's called Cincinnati Mommies. There are other mommies groups all over the country- and it's a pretty neat place. The idea is, you get to meet people on a forum and figure out if they are friend material, and then you also have many opportunities to meet up in person and make new real-life friends (as opposed to make believe internet friends).
If you are a mama looking for other mama friends and you are in Cincinnati- go to here, if you are elsewhere, go to here. It's for working mums as well as SAHMs- and even if you don't have time to come play, you can still get a lot of helpful q&a on the forums.
Back to goats. I was going somewhere. We also went to see Where the Wild Things Are. And while I'm not sure it was fair to have marketed it to children... it was a really great movie. One that takes a bit of chewing on, though. It was there that I saw a preview for another movie that I really must see- The Fantastic Mr. Fox (based on a Roald Dahl book). And George Clooney. And Jason Schwatzman. And, did I mention Wes Anderson directs? What could be better?
NOW... for the goats, the other movie I want to see is The Men Who Stare at Goats. George Clooney+Goats. See? There is a theme here.
Happy Tuesday, anyway :)
