suburban girl turned country

Saturday, July 26, 2014

I grew up in the suburbs of new jersey not really knowing what it was to work on a farm. When we moved upstate to the country, we got horses and had to put hay in the barn. Now iI'm married to a farmer. We've been working on hay this week and I have been away from it for about three years and way out of shape for it. Well I've been working at helping my fil and husband put hay away....boy am I beat! But I feel better about it and like I've accomplished something today, now I suffer with horrible hay fever. Now I remember why I couldn't do it. Oh well we live and we learn! Hubby needs help I'm gonna put my difficulties away and do it anyway. I haven't said anything to anyone about being allergic to hay I'm just suffering in silence on this one. We've still got horses8 more fields to go....I pray I survive it. Hope everybody has a good weekend!

my 2 years here

Friday, July 18, 2014

Time has definitely gotten away from me the last two years. I've been so busy with my babies growing them up that I hadn't realized I've been with spark for 2 yrs. As I sit here sipping my morningcfee watching them wake up I realize I am pretty lucky. All three are happy, healthy, and growing into such fine young men right before my eyes. I guess life's not so bad after all. They could be not as healthy, and not growing as they should. I sometimes get too busy to stop and see what I've been through and what I have overcome. They are such a blessing to me in many ways they don't even know. I honestly don't know where I'd be without them. I realize soon they'll be on their own and don't need me as much. I feel myself welling up when I think about it but know I'll always be there for them no matter what. Anyway, I wouldn't have it any other way. My two years here has gone by too fast. I've lost all the baby weight but over this past winter put 10lbs back on. I don't like myself for it but with all the sleepless nights and stress I know its bound to happen. I still have yet to reach my goal weight but I know I hopefully will over time. Well all my cherubs are awake and demanding attention so I hope you all have a good day!

    The babies are such a blessing - keep working on healthy choices and making them for both you and the kids and you will get to your goal before you even know it. Congratulations on your Sparkiversary

how can I turn back time?

Sunday, July 13, 2014

What would you say to your younger self if you met him/her on a street one day? I would have too many things to tell myself. First I'd say to cherish every minute you can with family. Take better care of yourself, care less about what people think about you, try to find time for yourself as much as you can and trust more then you do now. I've got issues with trusting people, maybe because all my life I've always had someone making fun of me one way or another. In high school, my nickname was goon, why I honestly don't know. My family always told me I was pretty but they were family, they had to right? Many days I don't feel very pretty or worthwhile to anyone. My life's been too wrapped up in making everybody else happy but me. I'm not sure what would make me happy any more. I get tired of being tired and everyone's doormat, but nothing ever seems to change because I've gotten comfortable being that doormat. I've had people tell me you can't have anybody change you, you have to want to change. I've been beaten down, kicked, knocked over, but yet I keep getting up for more. Why? Do I like to be hurt? Maybe just all what I'm used to. On the up side of things, I've got three wonderful boys who love me. Without them my life hasn't got any meaning it seems. Somewhere along the way I've forgotten my purpose and reason for being here. I get depressed then mad at myself for doing so. Wrong again I guess...maybe one day I'll get this right.

    You are worth taking great care of. I'm sorry if this seems harsh, but If you don't make your self-care a priority, no one else will. I have 3 boys, too!

a little bit of me

Saturday, July 05, 2014

Ugh where to start?
Well....favorites I guess is a good favorite indulgence would have to be having a cup of chocolate raspberry coffee along with a couple more tsps of dark hot chocolate mixed in.....along with a quiet morning to drink it in. Which hardly ever happens at my house.

Favorite critters would have to include my long time friend who's now passed my black percheron mare Chelsey. She tried my patience something terrible and she's the one I miss terribly. She stood atleast 17.5 hands high ....I'm 5 ft 7 in tall and could fit underneath her neck without bending over. I'd take and wrap my arms up overtop of her neck and shed just wrap her massive head around my back to hug me. I never rode her too much she was more of a huge pet. I dabbled once a year with her trying to teach her but I'd end up getting frustrated and hurt so she'd get off the hook again. But I loved her terribly. My other two favorite critters were my husband's dog Jetta. She was a rough collie who I fell in love with quicker then my husband. She knew I was pregnant twice before I was the sticker! She wasn't around when I had my littlest. She loved my older two sons something terrible. Along with my dog Callie who i also loved. The last being my cat's Becket. He stayed around for 16 yrs.
Well another favorite is spending time with my kids when they don't annoy me. Sometimes I wish their dad would spend more time with them then he does. I don't like getting dressed up any more. There doesn't seem to be a point to it. When you're married to a farmer you don't get the chance to go anywhere anyway.
Favorite music: well that would depend on my mood. I'm sort of eclectic on that one. I love the phantom of the opera to Shania Twain and Trace Adkins..then there's also Josh Grobin.....hmmm....anyway, hahaha! Let's see my worst memory was when my dad died. Life changed from you can imagine.
Well there's a small window into me....hope you all have a good weekend! Thanks to all who wrote ontmy last blog!!!
