The good, the bad and the Ugly

I have so much to say, and yet so little. Does that make sense?

Our year long school adventure has come to a close, and we are enjoying EVERY DAY together. I have missed them. I think they realize they have missed each other as well.

Yesterday morning I went out and found 108 of my four week old meat birds dead in the coop.  Yes 108. I am NOT a fan of whatever did it. I've never been a hunter, but yesterday my mama instincts took over I tell y'a.  So much invested both financially and emotionally. What a loss. That's it. I don't want to talk about it anymore.

I'm missing close family and friends right now. That's all I'll also say about that. Some days I feel surrounded by love and friendships and other times they all feel so far away.  I think it has something to do with not seeing my husband for days at a time when he heads off to his paying job. We have set a date for him to quit and farm full time. We just can't do both for much longer.  We want to farm and that is that, and I want to see my husband every once in a while ;)

I've had my coffee now, my husband is about to arrive home from work, and the kids and I are headed off for a fun filled day together.

Happy Canada Day eh!!!

I understand how you feel about not seeing your husband for days at a time. I went through that when you were younger. My husband was busy traveling and I was left trying to go to work and look after my children at the same time. Hopefully it will end for you soon. You know I am always here for you.
