back on my feet

I'm feeling better, but not back to 100%. There is still some residual yuckiness going on in the pipes. Remarkably, I was out last night moving fences, rabbit cages, and hauling water like I was never bent over with the flu. It amazes me how the body can take hits like that and right itself again.

I am in the final countdown of a seriously stressful writing deadline that's been hovering for months. (A wonderful thing to have hovering, but none the less stressful.) Soon as I hand that in I will be updating this blog like a crazy person. Updating with things like this special report: in a few weekends I will be driving Gibson and I to Esperance NY to pick out his future flock of Scottish Blackface! More son!

Hope your body is ready for all the coffee it is going to get meeting that deadline. Glad you are feeling better, Jena. I missed your posts. Can't wait to hear what Gibson thinks of his new buddies.

I'd edit that to read "...the 20-something body..." But, being a scrappy farmer, you'll probably have a bounce-back body longer than most of us.

Glad you're on the mend, and looking forward to some crazy-person updates!

I know what you mean! A farm or acreage can't have chores put off! Fortunately, your age allows a speedy recovery. Good luck with the assignment

I'm glad to hear you are on the mend. I wanted to let you know that doing farm chores while horribly sick is great preparation for motherhood. I recall feeling as you described and still needing to get up and help the kids. One thing I got from the experience (and I'm betting you will, too) is a wee bit of awe at what we can do when we have little ones (two footed and four) who depend on us. It's rather empowering, don't you think? ;)
