My Babies Have Arrived, Now We Can Cruise!

My sleep schedule is so goofy since we got here!  I’ve been waking up in the middle of the night and struggling for half an hour to an hour to get back to sleep and then  waking up much too early for my liking. This morning I was awake at 4:47 am and finally crawled … Continue reading »

Travel Day: Nordheim, TX To La Marque, TX

The ‘Itch’ Is On!

We’re just plugging along.  Michael’s been doing the majority of the time at the shack but I’ve been trying to give him time off 2 or 3 days a week. They are still trying to finish up on the 2nd well but seem to have a road block every time they turn around.  Hopefully by … Continue reading »
