On top of getting the camper loaded up and ready for hunting season, a lot has to be done on the farm! We turned water off last week! And 2 weeks before that we got the last cutting of hay off the field! (Thank god lol)
All the hay is stocked up in the barn to get us through winter. We pulled the horses out of one pasture and getting ready to put them in our other pasture. We have been feeding the cow lots of corn from the garden getting him ready for butcher in February. After all that things are cooling down fast we have to still deworm and give vaccinations to the horses, cows, and goats but I’m waiting for the first freeze and with my pregnant mare I have to wait 90 days from her bred date to worm her or give any shots, I don’t want anything to happen to that baby!! We have built more shelters for the goats as they will all have there babies in November.
It’s so hard for me to pull it together and get out of this slump! With my husband gone I just don’t want to do much of anything, he is my everything my inspiration, my passion and with him being gone I just can’t seem to get around to doing anything. The only time I actually pull it all together is 2 days before I head off to see him! He is a big help though he always sends the sweetest texts and calls every night before bed! I know what he has to do to keep us afloat but what I wouldn’t give to be with him and be his helper again, don’t get me wrong it’s hard work but it was worth it to see him so happy When I was with him! Pipeline wife’s don’t have it easy by any means! We have to stay strong minded and strong willed and all the while hold down the fort, pay the bills and keep our chin up when we are hurting inside because we miss them so much. Our welders are not just a paycheck like so many people think,they are our soul mates, our undying lovers and for pipeliners like mine the last of a dying bread who is holding on to a dying industry that is turning into punk kids and flat bill hats! It’s heart breaking to hear him so upset about where this industry has gone. All of this stress on top of missing my love makes for a real sad time. But It won’t be like this forever! God bless the pipeliner and his wife!
