Hi everyone!  By the way the Brisket my husband made was excellent and there's more for another meal, it will be tomorrow night when my daughter comes again. She bought it and he grilled it.  The end of this month she is moving to her new house she just purchased, it's 2 miles from us.

Not only is she a Hospice Nurse but a Massage Therapist too, and she will have a nice massage room there to give massages, she has quite a bit of clients yet from when she had her business.  

I never had a pancake sister, I loved all of them, two are in Heaven now, how I miss them. They all were very good to me growing up, I came a few years behind and lived on a farm.  Anyone here lived on a farm growing up? It was lots of fun.  Lots of good memories.

@cowboy sam : Thank you. Enjoy your visit with son and family.

Grrr..... Cell phone was in my city this morning at 6 a.m at the UPS distribution center. I have the UPS My Choice delivery that I paid a premium for. I tried to change the delivery for today. Was informed that QVC deliveries with Surepost can't be changed. Package was transferred to the post office at 4 p.m today.

@Yahooey , nope. I probably have some "bald" spots on my head from pulling my hair out, though. MIL WAITS on FIL hand and foot and it drives me CRAZY! Every. Single. Meal. She makes his plate, gets his drink, sees if he LIKES what she SERVED him, then CLEANS his mess up. He would rather STARVE than do it for himself. AND he would if it was up to me. 😖

Cowboy Sam - just was wondering how your son is doing? Is he in remission now?  Hope and pray he can kick that cancer.  My brother in law had cancer of the prostate, and he went to the Mayo Clinic, and now after chemo treatments, he is cancer free.  

 

Yahooey - sorry your pancake sister is only civil since your Mom died. Hope that relationship will get better, but glad it wasn't always that way.  Our farm was 180 acres.

My cousins and I loved playing in the hayloft swinging on ropes,  they lived in town and loved coming to the farm to play with me.

holy moley - 180 acres - i can't even fathom the math

did the farm sell to supermarkets? you cant consume all the food ...

what did you grow? animals? i wanna know everything

i find it fascinating... i watched many a homestead youtuber

showing us their way of life - usually, i wanna learn gardening tips

if you dont mind... pls share more

 

i was so angry w/pancake bc i was caring for mom - it was exhausting

 

she lives 10 walking minutes away - 

i'm civil bc i'm a better person - i can state that for a fact

when a person answers - i dont want to

the question was - can you take mom to radiation

i dont give a flying hoot - if u dont like hospitals - dont like seeing sick people etc

 

i also ask if she can watch mom during the day - 1 day so i can go away for a weekend - brother was going to stay the nigh and the weekend

she say no - i asked her daughter and she came - 1.5 hr subway ride away

 

i have to stop writing... gets me angry all over again

sorry...

Yahooey - We grew corn, some years instead of corn, Dad planted soy beans, also oats. We had pigs that ate corn, also chickens, he sold the soybeans,

Hay went for the cattle, we milked cows. 

I just remember how I loved our corn fields, the spaces in them I made into pretend houses, and my cousins and I would play house in them.  When my Dad was plowing, and it was time for him to have a coffee break and Mom's homemade cinnamon rolls, I'd climb up the windmill and see how far he was to the road, and when he got closer I'd drive my bike there and give him his lunch.  I did that alot.  Always my dog would go with me.  Of course we didn't use all the corn ourselves, he sold what we didn't need. We had a building called a corn shed, which held our corn for the pigs. I used to feed them and also the chickens and get eggs, with Mom. We had big gardens and Mom canned alot. Did a lot of pea shelling and bean cutting.  Life on the farm was work but lots of fun too.  When I was twelve, my Dad got lung cancer, he smoked, and he couldn't farm anymore, so we lived there, but he sold the lifestock, and we had 3 bandy hens for eggs, and a dog and cat.  We lived there until I was 18, after I graduated, he sold the farm and we bought a house in town. 

 

Your sister sounded very selfish, in helping you. I can understand how you would feel.  Just forgive her, and let that baggage that makes you angry go. God will help you.   I had to do a lot of forgiving in my day too, not easy, but peaceful.

Thank you for responding to me.  Getting to know you is a pleasure.
