(Please ignore the unsightly pallets in the background, just another project in the works!)
More and more often I am finding myself confronted with the question, “Are you really gonna be able to do it?”
“Yes,” I say with determination. Yes. We will eat the pig.
But in the back of my mind I realize that it’s so much easier said than done. I do realize this. But, if you know me at all, you know that I am one who does what she sets out to do. Though tempted at times, I am not a quitter. I am stubborn and persistent.
And I am determined to follow through with the plan.
I am, however, afraid that there is an even harder question that I must face…
Are you gonna be able to do it? Or, at least, watch me do it.
I’m a little concerned that you guys are growing a bit, well… attached… to Mrs. Porkchop!
Com’mon guys, you knew what she was for when we got into this mess to begin with! You gotta be strong with me!
If you are going to live the homesteading life, even if only living it vicariously through us, you gotta take the good with the bad!
But I have to admit. It’s gonna be hard. Really hard. I mean, just look at that face! She’s like a loyal dog… just a lot more trouble.
Boy, I hope I don’t cry like a sissy!
We still have a few more months to go though, so you softies out there have a little more time to prepare yourselves.
This is life. Just don’t hate me when it’s all said and done! 🙂
