Confession #1 – I don’t have it all together. Nope, not in the least.
Confession #2 – I don’t go skippin’ through the fields of lavender. Oh wait, I don’t even have fields of lavender. Not yet……..
Confession #3 – I have stepped in chicken piles of you-know-what before heading off to church.
Confession #4 – I have wrestled an adult buck to the ground. No joke. More about that later.
Confession #5 – I have rounded up horses in our humble old Chrysler mini van. Got a flat tire from it too.
Confession #6 – I left way too many tomatoes in the garden this fall.
Confession #7 – I really hate, I mean dislike squash bugs!
Confession #8 – Weeds? Well yes, as a matter of fact, I had more than enough in my garden.
Confession #9 – I don’t make my own laundry detergent. Gasp!
Confession #10 – Yes, we homeschool, but my 17 year old is taking an Anatomy and Physiology class at a Christian school. Another gasp.
Confession #11- I don’t wear skirts all of the time. But, I do wear aprons!
Confession #12 – I drink coffee. Oh yeah.
Confession #13 – We have run out of grain before, and had to give our goats quick cooking oats until the next grain delivery came. I had to swallow hard before I confessed that one.
Confession #14 – I find great pleasure in seeing a Houdini goat receiving a shock from the electric fence. Evil laugh. I’m mean, poor thing.
Confession #15 – My children go barefoot, even in the barn.
And there you have it. My homesteading life isn’t the picture perfect life we all dream of. But, I love it and thank God for this little bit of land He has given us. After all, I guess He figures we are nutty enough to take on this homesteading challenge!
Okay. It’s your turn. Any other homesteader confessions out there? Come on, don’t be shy!
