So I've just been told by Steven that we have NO propane left in our tank...no propane=no heat!!! We're trying to get our wood burning stove ready to go, but two pieces of pipe are backordered (go figure) so we can't use it yet, and another tank of propane will cost about $300.00. Hopefully, we'll get the rest of our pipe soon!! BRRRRR!!!!

I guess I should probably start by updating y'all on what's going on with Steven and me.
We just celebrated our first year of marriage on November 10th! I can't believe how the time has flown by.
We don't have any kids yet, but we have a lab mix puppy named Shadow and to me taking care of him is like taking care of a baby...getting up in the middle of the night, cleaning his messes, making sure he doesn't get into anything that will hurt him...it's good training, anyways.
I work in Montgomery (an hour away from home) as an accountant, and I really enjoy it. The commute leaves a little to be desired, but being able to live in the country makes it worthwhile.
Steven and I now live in the house he grew up in. His parents moved to a house in town, so now we take care of the farm, named the Dangling T Ranch (I always wanted to live on a farm that had a name). We raise beef cattle and grow corn and hay. We have 4 horses: my old arabian, Buddy (that's a story in itself), his mustang, Tanto, his quarter horse, Daisy, and her baby, Cowboy.
We stay busy between our full time jobs and running the farm. Steven's always working on building some new contraption or fixing something that's broken; he amazes me with the things he comes up with (we probably should patent some things). He's a wonderful husband, and I enjoy every minute I get to spend with him.
