Today I decided to embrace my new reality. So my patio has had to be removed and is now a dirtio (that's a patio made from dirt). I may not love my new situation but I can somehow deal with it and use it to my advantage.
For lunch today I took my salad out on my "new" redneck patio and sat down to eat while my pups played.
Can't get much more redneck than this.
My hubby and 2 of our sons put in an underground invisible fence on Saturday so now the girls can play outside without me chasing them around and worrying they will get hit all of the time
