Wife Takes a Farmer

So I was talking to my grandma the other day and she said something like “You are liking this whole being a farmer’s wife thing, aren’t you?—You are taking to it so well.  I just never would have thought you would have, I don’t mean that mean honey, but just never thought you would.”  Now my grams is a wonderful woman, and I know she didn’t mean it badly, just knew I had lived in KC for a long while, then moved to a farm in the middle of nowhere.  And not only did I move out there, I’m cutting down hay, holding calves, feeding chickens, brushing the horse, etc etc.  I do notice there has been a shift in my life, I used to watch a lot more TV (that’s also in thanks part to my BFF who loves reality TV), go to museums with girlfriends, whatever.  Now I get home and the TV versus  getting outside and playing with my animals and seeing the seasons change, and watching things grow.  Hmm—doesn’t sound like much of a competion.  I would rather get outside.  Now I do still have my TV shows I watch, but it’s that I don’t rely on that to entertain me.  Going outside and talking to all my critters is entertaining enough (for me and for them I’m sure—LOL).  Its like that question—what are the 5 most important things in your life?  Hmm—TV is not one of them…my farm life definitely  J

  1. Asking what are the 5 most important things in your life are is very important. We all need to do this. Glad you've identified them for yourself. And for the record, TV is definitely not one of mine. I like a few shows (2 or 3) but if I miss them, so what? Being in nature is life!
