I beginning to think I am, however my paycheck isn't showing it really. I am only putting in about 85 hours every pay period. That isn't much. It has been the long work days that have been killer. The work that is put into the farm is more than I ever thought it would be. But, I can tell you it has been the most rewarding thing I have done in my lifetime. I can't (and won't) complain one bit. Then you add the kids and the wife, (who is not a bother at all, btw) Speaking of my wife, there is no one on this planet that is her equal. Period. She works circles around me, puts up with me, the kids and everything else that you want to throw at her. She takes it all in stride and there is no one else I would want to be married to.
So work had been going very well, and you can tell when I have a break. I stumble upon such pictures that thought ever existed. and then I post them on here. I generally do not have time to bloviate during work. I just have a break here or there. I am driving a lot again. I don't mind to much. I do find that the whole more choices thing really doesn't help generally. I have the XM radio at my disposal, but I only listen to about 10 channels out of 200 some. Stephanie is right (again.)

This evening Steph had to work at that consignment sale( that's not the right term for it, but you get the general idea) tonight until 9:30pm, so I have some down time now. I just got finished using our new toy. It is a food mill. I juiced a sink full of tomatoes and it came out to be 8 quarts of sauce. It was really easy and fast. All you have to do is wash the veggies, then quarter them and turn the handle. No coring, peeling, nothing. Just turn the handle. All the junk comes out in the end and leaves you with a nice sauce. I am starting to sound like a infomercial. That's all for now kiddos, I will try to keep you up to date a little better than I have, but then again, I have Stephanie to do that too, huh?

OH I am so coveting the food mill! I want one so bad!
Just think, band will start soon and there will be yet another thing to do!
It's a blessed thing to be so needed and wanted but tiring none the less!

85 hours? Not every 2 weeks I hope because that seems like a lot to me.

As for the food mill, those are great. I have an old sqeezo I got from my mom. There are different sized screens to attatch for different sized seeds. Amazing for sauces and jellies.
