Another Holiday Monday! It's raining and there no such thing as a holiday on a farm - lol
What an education this all is, this tiny farm. Life. Up with the roosters - no sleeping in with feathers & fur relying on you. Keeping busy is good for the sole & mind & body. I'm always stiff in the morning - with age let alone arthritis... not until Im up and active & loosen it all us does the pain of stiffness subside. Use it or lose it!
Farmers deserve more respect than they are given, feeding humans - is lots of work.
I do NOT consider us farmers' - this is a hobby.
I'm learning to pickle eggs! I give eggs away too.. chances are they have faces on them.
I can't imagine drinking to the point of a hang over and having to deal with animals... they don't care if humans are hung over. I hate hang overs so much I am grateful for having experienced some "doozies" in the past.. lessons learned - it took a while.
I just won't anymore. It's not worth destroying braincells for a "feel good"... is it feel good? Compared to cannabis the more I think of it- the less I think alcohol makes anyone "feel good". Sure it relaxes the body and mind - too much sometimes.
It's sad when you understand, Alcohol is the number one date rape DRUG.
Think about it for a moment.
Some drink to forget. I use to use that escuse myself, a few times. Ha.
It might make you forget for a bit, until it makes you wallow & get stuck in exactly what you were trying to forget about. I remember my mom crying a lot drunk, aways talking about the same stuff. Her past pains passed on to me during drunken stupors - because I was there to listen. Told so many times and then left to ponder, I bet my mom has no clue as how much I remember of the details... coats, bundle buggies, curtains being closed, sibling rivalry (I was not raised with my siblings so I don't know about it) all on how she suffered. Who cares.
That's part of the problem.. not many do care. Then or now. I get it. I think Melania was kinda right. GASP - yuk but... yep. Not many really care. They are distracted with their own lives. AS life intended. Throw in Covid... big distraction going on.
The only thing anyone should care about NOW is breaking the cycle.
RECOGNIZE & don't repeat what YOU did not enjoy as a child/adolescent. How about that? It's a holiday!
Does that mean you're going to get 'shit faced' (term for getting drunk)?
Sure go ahead! IF YOU don't have kids you are responsible for.
They don't need to listen to your past pains I think as parents we should be trying to make their path easier - even if it means sharing not pleasant topics by talking, educating (not impaired) the more the tiny humans know the better they will be. They are smarter than most realize. Id rather a child be taught early about "molestation" than to learn by having it happen - because they did not know - to say "NO!"
? Tuff call.
Tomorrow is a tuff call for many parents... back to school during covid - as it slowly creeps back up. Pray for strength to get through, because life has to go on.
The hamster was my 16th birthday gift, my friends wanted to take me out for my sweet 16th I was told "NO, come right home, we are celebrating" YAAAY!
I spent the evening alone, no special dinner, no cake. I was waken up around 2:00a.m. and given my birthday gift... which I loved. I guess she got side tracked. I was use to it.
Teddy died a couple of YEARS later while eating a McDonalds french fry, he was so old and arthritic he could hardly walk. He was a wonderful, adorable pet & tiny companion.
With THC & TLC I hope you have an alcohol free holiday!
Break the cycle. Life is not all cracked up as were led to believe.. hee hee- egg jokes.
Oh- My chickens count how many eggs they lay! They are mathemachickens.
lol Heard it on the radio, canoe.
