My wife is simply AMAZING -- in case you didn't already know that.
As mentioned earlier in the blog -- in early February, I became ill with some type of virus that put me in bed for several days. During that time, Laura took over all the chores inside and out and the farm ran as good as it does even when I am working at full speed -- and I was amazed. Not surprised, just in ever growing awe of a woman that shows me daily what she is capable of.
We laughed about it because one of the things Laura had told me in the beginning was I was not allowed to get sick on the farm. Didn't seem like an unreasonable request at the time, since iy had it been years and years since I had been sick. Well, at least we got that out of the way quickly, now back to farming.
Then, this weekend, I woke up in the middle of the night unable to put any weight on my ankle and could not move it even slightly. After visiting a few highly paid professionals, they all seemed to agree that I had torn a couple tendons in my ankle. I have been on crutches and once again Super Woman has been taking on all of the farm chores inside and out and once again -- everything is running great. She does this with two helpers with her at all times, often riding on her back. These helpers no doubt add many things to the experience -- but ease is not one of them. She is amazing!
I could not imagine a better life than what we are creating for ourselves and I could not imagine doing it without such an amazing partner.
