During this time of uniqueness I have been so thankful for our farm, my family and our animals. We have been able to tackle projects that we have had the materials to complete for years and we have had some amazing and exciting moments with kiddings and new life on our farm. However, this week in particular I have felt incredibly overwhelmed, and like I am not going to be able to get it all done. Prior to the pandemic I had a routine that worked for me, but for the past 10 weeks life has been anything but routine! We tore our master bathroom out three weeks ago and have been slowly working to put it all back together, and we spent many nights this past week up until 1 AM cutting and laying tile. I am so thankful to say that other than putting up the last of the trim we are done with the remodel and I could not be happier. This coupled with our impending camping trip and all of the outdoor work that comes along with this time of year plus my full time job, to say I felt like I was drinking out of a fire-hose is an understatement.
To top off the chaos, all three of my bucklings are extending and showing the desire to breed, which means I have to separate them from the herd, which makes them unhappy to say the least. They will all be going to their separate
homes sooner rather than later, so I am trying to enjoy the time I have with them. Through all of this, I think, how will life ever go back to normal? How will I adapt and be able to complete all the tasks that need to be done, and the answer is simple. One step at a time. I know many people feel the same way I do and get overwhelmed by managing, work, personal and farm life, but remember the best things in life are not easy, and this hard work gives me joy and a sense of purpose!
