DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 06 May 2013

Dear Scale,

It's been 5 days since I last stripped down to my birthday suit and waited with anticipation for you to tell me something good. Mostly you only tell me bad things. Lately you only have something nice to say once a week. I think until you learn to say something nice every day well then you shouldn't say anything at all. Maybe a month without you will teach you a lesson! Or.. You'll keep saying nasty things and laugh at my attempt to teach you a lesson by giving me a big ol nasty message at the end. Please be nice to me! Sorry again about putting you on the bottom of a basket full of dirty clothes. And sorry about putting the 9 yr olds dirty towel on top of you yesterday morning. Oh and sorry about that thing.. this morning.. that well. Probably shouldn't be mentioned or I may be turned into the scale abuse line.

Sincerely yours.. please don't hate me,

I SUCK. Yesterday I was tired, sore, sunburned, tired, my hand has a welt the size of a vanilla wafer. I know this because I kept sharing lil man's vanilla wafers with him. My weekend eating.. SUCKED. I decided to finish things off with pizza and wings last night for a grand finale to my suckiness. Seriously though.. I mowed lawns, painted milk cans, went on a 2 and a half hour trip to get parts and found out lil man gets car sick 1 hr into the trip, helped fix a chisel plow.. where a wrench fell off the frame and smacked my hand (luckily the pipe wrench missed my head), cleaned calf stalls, mowed more lawn (we need more fields, lawns are overrated. Seriously.. plant corn in the front yard! I don't care!), put finishing touches on garden boxes, and alot of other stuff that I can't remember because I'm brain dead.

Today.. I'm going to kick some serious butt till the end of this month. I will eat right. I will stop eating my sons snacks. I know.. I've said this before.. but I have to. Lil man's b-day is at the end of the month and the woman who kept calling me twiggy is coming. At this point I want to lose weight just to peeve her off. Plus I have to take 9 yr old to see my family at the end of school. I want to amaze them. They haven's seen me in a year. Last time they saw me I was in size 18s and I weighed about 195 lbs. They haven't seem me this small since I was a kid. I'm going to do this. Thynes.. if I start to slip. Smack me silly.

Cursing.. I put 9 yr old in charge of my cursing. You realize you may have a problem when you're screaming "What the hell??" and the windows are down.. and then you realize the neighbors can hear you! The very religious neighbors.. who are probably thinking things just as bad as the amish. Heck the amish are less than a mile away. They might have heard me! So.. for every curse I pay 25 cents.. in a month the kids should have the funds they need for a swingset. Well Saturday was 1.50. Sunday was .75 (Hey... a giant 1-1/2 inch wrench fell from 3 feet and hit my hand!) Today.. I'm up to .25 so far because of the morning commute.

Tonight it's barn chores, mowing the lawn some more, finishing the milk cans, dinner.. them hopefully 30 minutes on the eliptical. I may be up till midnight getting everything done but I need to kick things into high gear to undo any damage.

You are my hero. Perhaps I should borrow your 9 year old in charge of cursing. By the end of the week, their college fund may be set. LOL. JK.

The curse jars!! That's too funny! If I started one around my place I would be swearing and laughing way too much especially during hockey playoffs!! Lol Great uplifting journal.

Losing weight just to spite someone; I like it. It should be some good motivation for you. :) I hope your hand is feeling better today, and you don't injure it further with your chores!

I understand what you mean about planting corn in the front yard. Even an alfalfa field would be great. Both commodities have sky rocketed so the way I look at it, it makes PERFECT business sense!

I am a pastor's wife and I just giggle when people apologize for saying a bad word in front of me. Like I make a difference. If you feel guilty about cursing in front "religous people" shouldn't you feel that way all the time?

Wow!! You probably burned a lot of calories with all those chores! The wrech on the hand had to hurt. I hope it gets better soon. My kids tell us that we have to put money in the cuss jar whenever we curse, but the jar is imaginary. I don't curse too much, I do use replacement words though, but the hubby can let a lot slip.

I worked in a warehouse and drove a forklift. Seemed apart of the job to cuss. I cringe when I hear myself say f&*k more than anything. Thats how I usually know its time to real it in :)

I am sorry but I am laughing right now. Not at you, oh dear me no, but you write very well and it is very amusing, to one standing on the sidelines, whose children are grown up and who doesn't have to work that hard any more. I feel your pain. You have a wickedly busy life and you seem to work terribly hard. I hope you have a better day today :) You sure deserve it.

Re swearing - I find it very therapeutic. You have to be careful who you swear around, that's for sure, but there is something very cathartic about 'that' word - you know - the f-bomb. So go ahead and swear if you need to, I'll send you a dollar, have a good time! :)

I wish these comment had a "like" button, like Facebook - I agree, Sarahsmum, even when I'm home by myself (especially then lol) just letting it fly can sure make you feel better!! and Petuniak, same situation several years ago - I worked in a distribution warehouse, forklifts, electric pallet jacks and cussing went hand-in-hand :P
