Mom's on the Computer

I'm not sure who the author is, if you find out let me know so that I can give them proper credit...

Mom's on the Computer (to the tune of Cat's in the Cradle.)

My computer arrived just the other day,
It came on the porch in the usual way
So many blogs to read and games to play
My child learned to walk, while I twittered away
And he was talkin’ for I knew it, as my friends list grew
He’d say I’m gonna be like you mom
You know I’m gonna be like you

And mom’s lost on the computer, lettin' dinner burn
Little boy wanders, he just wants to learn
When you getting off mom?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then
we're gonna have a good time then


My son turned ten just the other day
He said "thanks for the wii, mom, come on let’s play"
"Can you teach me how it works?" I said “Not today”
"I got a blog to write" he said “that’s okay”
And he walked away while the computer never dimmed
He said, “I’m gonna be like them, yeah”
You know I’m gonna be like them

And mom’s lost on the computer lettin' dinner burn
Little boy wanders, he just wants to learn
When you getting off mom?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then
We're gonna have a good time then


Well my son came home just the other day
iPod in his ears, while he texted away
"Son, I'm proud of you, can you sit for a while?"
He shook his head and he said with a smile
"I'd really like to Mom, but talkins' not my thing"
"Check my status, for what's happening"

And mom’s lost on the computer lettin' dinner burn
Little boy wanders, he just wants to learn
When you getting off mom?
I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then
You know we’ll have a good time then


Well my blog's retired and my Facebook out-of-date
My son texted, “Hey mom, I just can't relate"
I said, "I'd like to see you if you have some time."
He said, "I'd love to mom but skype if you don't mind."
"You see my website's down and my workload just grew."
"but it's nice texting with you, mom"
It's been sure nice texting with you."

And as I typed “c u later” it occurred to me
He'd grown up just like me
My boy was just like me

Monday musings

Our weekend was full. We spent most of Friday at Big Sandy for the last day of the ATI regional conference. It was a blessing. We met many new people and got to visit with many friends. It turned out to be a wonderful day.
Saturday was pretty busy.
We went and picked up 4 more hens and 2 lamb. We also ran several other errands.
We finally got home and got all the new animals settled in.i even got to do about an hour of sewing.
Sunday we woke up to get ready for church and we take the lambs out of enclosure so
They can graze in pasture. However one dog (great pyrenese) gets excited and wants to herd them back in. Instead he scares them clear across to the neighbors yard (about half a block away). The other dog gets so excited that he pulls one whole wall of the chicken coop down with his chain. And out we go trying to gather them up with the the 2nd dog (also a great pyrenese). Soooo by the time all that's over we have to head to home depot to buy cement so we could redo the posts. Needless to say we didn't make it to church. Bummer!!!!

How was your weekend?
