6 days ago
My days are so very different from before we moved here. Two years ago, my day would start around 9 or 10, maybe. I'd run 3 to 5 miles, feed people, usual happenings. Rinse and repeat. Today, I woke up around 6Am. Lounged around a second with coffee, then went out to check the chickens and fed the furnace. I have an afternoon shift for the call center and the usual happenings in the evening. (Basically morning tasks reversed.) I'm in bed by 9 if I can be. The burden of having to do certain things, every day. Twice a day. Can feel daunting at times. Things are really in a period of transition, and it's a lot. I look back at pictures of the farm just one year ago and I am so wicked impressed by how much we did. I thought I'd have more animals but that was just a foolish dream. I really am still not adapted to the homestead lifestyle I guess. I really feel ... I just want to hangout and watch the great British baking show in my pajamas.
