6:00 Eyes pop open and brain sizzles. Realize that the two-year-old is still asleep and you don’t have a headache, for the first time in two or three weeks. Try to go back to sleep but your brain is on now and you can’t. Try to get out of bed. Lay there. Your neck and Carry on!
A Day in the Life of a Farmer 6:00 Wake up to alarm. Try to sneak out of bedwithout disturbing beautiful wife or two year old who’s snoozing between us. Am largely unsuccessful. Sneaking is not my forté. Grab a cup of coffee to down while putting on my coveralls. It’s 15 degrees on the Carry on!
When my oldest was approaching school age and when she was in early elementary, I was obsessed with looking up the schedules of homeschooling families. I did find a book which had a compilation of different families’ days and whose name I unfortunately can’t remember, and here and there I would find a blog post, but Carry on!
It was a nice day finally! I even wore flip flops and got a teensy bit sunburned on my neck. We went to a few garage sales today. I snagged a dehydrator and a CD player (with a tape deck!). Five dollars goes a long way. I am thinking about perhaps making placenta pills one Carry on!
6 a.m. Kevin’s alarm goes off. He has to go out and load cattle he’s selling today. Last calf finally born in the night. 107 lb bull calf. Helped it get nursing. 6:15: Hear 20 month old Elivette. She’s at the top of the stairs crying instead of just coming down to our room like Carry on!
Ahh. I have been a little concerned that I’ve been getting depressed. Like, seriously. But I think what I really needed was to just get out of the house! The children were doing better healthwise today, even Elivette (who wanted to snurse all night, and if I pulled her off the breast she complained. Loudly. Carry on!
This post is just for me. I share it with you because sometimes the mundane is oddly interesting. Perhaps what goes on in my house may encourage you to know that you are not alone in the mess and mayhem, the scurrying and squabbles. I do this a couple times a year, in a notebook. Carry on!
It’s so good to feel good. I have been getting back to normal–we went to church on Sunday (my first time for several weeks) and I even took the kids to story hour yesterday, and on an outing today–pick up milk, grocery shop and a reward trip to Goodwill. The girls didn’t find anything they Carry on!
Dark. Bad. Quiet. Good. Apple muffins: YUM! Shredded knuckle: Not so much. School started promptly at 9:00. First interruption: 9:20. Not bad! Denton actually says Ga-Ga. I want a friend in Alaska. Brielle’s sunflower sprouts are amazingly resilient. B: I don’t want to help Tadrian! He always drools on my hand! Why do I not Carry on!
What a day! Maybe it’s the being off sugar and God is blessing me for it–but I have been chock full of energy all day today. I was up at two with my sweet four year old who just can’t seem to get used to her big bed and new bedroom upstairs. I had a Carry on!
