She was compensated!

Mallory had to help me out all day yesterday due to my back.  She helped me unload the dishwasher, reload the dishwasher, get clothes out of the dryer and put in a basket.  On top of all of that, she also helped me by picking the baby goats (kids) and put them in the bucket to be weighed.  She was a tremendous help to me!  I couldn't have done it without her. 

Since Mallory went above and beyond her few "chores" I decided she deserved to be compensated.  I told her she had the option of a prize that I had stored in my closet (it was a future birthday or Christmas present) OR she could get money.  She chose the prize in the closet, not knowing what it would be.  I don't think it was too shabby though.  It made one little girl quite happy.  See for yourself.

By the way, my back is getting much better.  Thank goodness for anti-inflammatories.  When completely well, I will be working on some back strengthening exercises.  I definitely don't want this to happen again!


  1. Hey Ashley...

    glad to hear that you're on the mend.....I hate it when my back 'goes out'.

    I have to warn you only gets worse as you get, your knees ache, your shoulder aches, your hips ache, your feet, in the words of the infamous Betty Davis...."getting old aint for sissies".

    Glad you are better and that you have such a sweet little helper at home with you! I love 'my little pony' stuff.

    I hope none of the goatie girls decide this is their day....sounds like our weather is going to be yucky all day long! What is the kid count up to? What are the general ranges of kids weight? Is that something that Shane will want to know on Annie's little kids, if she has doelings?

    Have a great weekend! And don't get wet!!!


  2. Hey, Ashley. I sure do hope your back gets better. Bless your heart. I am loving the pics of the little ones.......goats, pups, and your precious Mallory and Dillon. Of course, you too, Shane. The Byrds

  3. Time to work on your "core." Steve couldn't understand why his stomach muscles were so important to his back. Like the old song tells us, everything is connected!

    Take care of you, and it looks like you have a new buddy!

  4. thanks everybody....yes, I will definitely be working on the core!


Thank you for leaving a comment! I really do love to hear from you!
