...and other fun things.
It is so much fun listening to Ellen as she learns the English language. She generally pronounces things well, but some words just don't come out quite clearly. Like the word "clock." She doesn't pronounce the letter "l" clearly yet, so she talks a bit about her "c'ock." I have to giggle at that one.
Things dairy-wise are going pretty well. The prices may have bottomed out, but we are still hanging in there. If we had any kind of debt load things would be different, but so far it hasn't affected us TOO much. All the dairy magazines that we get have hard luck stories in them and talk about trying to rectify the situation and how to survive. Hubby says we don't want EVERYONE to survive, especially the huge factory farms, because if they all did we will just stay in the same situation. If some of these huge farms would go out of business there would be more $$ to go around.
We have decided to take Ellen to a different doc for a second opinion on the hernia situation. In all of our research we haven't found any urgent need for surgery as they all say these hernias generally heal up by age 4 or 5. Since the actual hernia is only a centimeter and isn't causing her any trouble we aren't too hot to have her operated on at this time.
