What a weekend! Busy,busy,busy!!!!!Hubby got to come home for a whole 3 days. I'm glad he came home, but I just wish we didn't have to stuff everything we did into just 3 days. Imagine everything you do in a week. Now do it in just 3 days. Next weekend, he will only be home for one and a half days. He doesn't get to relax at all. I try to do as much that I can through the week, but there are things that I just cant do. Anyways, I should at least be happy he has a job.
Last week I posted a question about if you would change your lifestyle if you had money. The reason I asked this question was, Hubby had a chance at a job where he would be making quite a bit more than we have ever made. Instantly I was thinking about the things I could buy. Better furniture, curtains for the house, new truck. Would I have a garden or just buy organic foods? Would I still want a milk cow, or would I find someone that would make the butter and cheeses for me? Do you see what I mean? So, I put the brakes on all of those kind of thoughts. I sat back and looked at the reason I was living like I am. I come up with the answer," I like the way I live!" We might get a newer tractor, or have the money to actually have the money to HIRE someone to finish the house. Or, we might build a bigger garage.(Hubby would need it to put his new tractor in. lol) But, I would still try to be self-sufficient. I could afford to buy that milk cow. I could buy fruit trees. I could afford to redo all of our fences. I might buy things, but it would be so I could have a more self-sufficient lifestyle.
Oh by the way, Hubby didn't make the cut for the job. Hehehehehehe. I guess I won't have to worry about it now. lol
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, poor, but happy.
