Then on Sunday the power went out. Right in the middle of cooking breakfast for The Farmer and Little Farmer. The Farmer had just come in from chores and was eagerly waiting for breakfast and Boom! No power. So he had to go and hook up the generator and check the robots to make sure they were still working. Well, about an hour later he noticed that the cows in the holding pen weren’t leaving. The exit gate for the robots weren’t working. Great. So he called the local service guy and was on the phone for about 2 hours trying to figure it out. When the power went out, it fried the electrical in the box and caused a whole lot of problems. But now the power is back on and the smart gate is fixed. Welcome back to the 21st century. Truth is, sometimes technology just sucks. But when it does work (after 3 hours of fixing it) we can let The Farmer take a nap. I’m sure the robot will be calling him soon to wake him up.
On top of all of that, there are snails in my garden. Eating away at all my hard work. Last year it was the dogs that were a problem, digging up my garden and nothing grew. And Little Farmer is working on his molars, drooling away and chewing on EVERYTHING he can get his little hands on. He, of course, doesn’t like to take naps and goes on a nursing strike when his little teeth are coming in. Poor little guy. I’m going to snuggle with the Little Farmer, but I hope this coming week is better than last!
