Well, it snowed. Again. I'm done with it! Give me at least a peek of sun, please!!!! I'm starting to get desperate here!!!!! I'm to that point where all I want to do is sit on the couch and do nothing. That's not good. I have dishes that need done. I'll do them later. I have clothes that need washed and folded. I'll do it later. I have a house that needs swept. Eh, later. This is getting bad folks. I do believe I am solar powered and my batteries are getting very low. I need some sun to revive me!
What makes it worse is that I can't even sleep during the night. Since I'm not doing anything during the day my body isn't tired and it wants to stay awake all night long. I know this because it was 3:00 in the morning the last time I looked at the clock and I had to get Hubby up at 4:30 to get him off to work. Yes, I went back to sleep at 6:00. But, I woke back up around 8:00. I'm not one to function on 3 1/2 hrs sleep. I'm an 8 hr type girl.
I've had a lot of things on my mind lately too. Big bills coming due and no big money in sight. One of the perils of having a farm I guess. I normally don't worry about stuff like that, but last night it hit me. We have to come up with a lot of money and in just a little bit of time. Taxes, tags, and bills due to people that it was promised too. I don't like being in this position. I like all my bills paid.
I'm not telling you this so that you can feel sorry for me. I know we all have been in this place before. And, I'm sure we will be okay. I'm telling you this because I want you to know that it's not all bunnies and baby goats around here. There's a lot of work and stress that comes with owning a farm. If you're planning on getting your own farm one day, make sure you are ready for these types of stress. It will be there. That and the sleepless nights that come with it. (Question: Why is it that on those sleepless nights the husband can rattle the windows with his snores? I mean, he was lucky he didn't get a pillow pulled tight over his face last night. I'm just saying. :-D )
All in all, things are are going good here on the farm. We are all fat and sassy. (emphasis on the fat). We should be having another kidding at anytime. This birth will be one that we've been waiting on. We want to see how these kids will look. Mom is one of our better muscled does. Dad was our normal buck that we have used. We have a list of people wanting these babies. The thing is, if they are as nice looking, the way we want them to be, we'll want to keep them for our own herd. It's another decision we'll have to make. I'm voting on keeping them. hehehehe
Well, I've rambled enough to you today.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, tired.
