You know that moment where you’re so busy and scatter brained that you forget to turn your oven off and it runs all night long? — ooh, that’s just me.
Life has been absolutely crazy. I travel for my town job mostly up to 4 or 5 days at a time, and I’ve been doing that pretty frequently lately.
Wife traveling + Husband harvesting + late harvest + moving to a new house= busy, stressed out family = cry baby Nicole (pssst. That’s me!)
I cry for stupid reasons when I get stressed out. I become the biggest whiner and complainer and cryer. If you see my husband, make sure you give him condolences for having to deal with a basket -case for the past couple days.
Anyway.. We’re moving to the country! I’ve been living in town for almost 4 years now and for me, that’s long enough. I’m ready to get out to some fresh air, quiet, and open sky’s.
There are a few barns on this old farmstead so I’m hoping we can get some laying chickens and some broilers this spring. Also.. I’m thinking we need a dog. :) So, if you know of someone who wants to give a dog a great home to a basket -case wife and a calm, collected husband who live on a farm call me up!
When I was in college and still single I felt like I had it all together. I’ve always been a pretty organized person, always have had all my ducks in a row and if I didn’t I would slightly freak out. By slightly I mean have a full out panic attack and eat a package of Oreos. And lay in bed.
But since I’ve been married I’ve lost it all. My sense of organization has fallen to the wayside and I don’t have panic attacks about it. Or eat a package of Oreos. Or lay in bed. Mostly because I don’t have time to do any of that.
Anyway, I’m not sure what I was planning on writing here. I think I wanted to tell you about us moving because I told you I would earlier.
We finally got back in the field after a week of having to take a break due to rain. Andrew is harvesting soybeans here.
Pictures and moments like this remind me of how blessed I am, aside from the craziness.
How do you handle stress?
Have a good weekend!
Love to all- Nicole
