Taking a Break

Except for a few ski day it has been almost 2 years since Dave has taken a day for himself.  He went from a job with shift work where he was in charge of a multi-million dollar project, where he had a few trips to Toronto and Texas, straight into a hands on, smack in the middle of busy season job.  We will be eternally grateful to Mike for letting us know of the new job.  He spends his days at work, doing church stuff, or at the farm.  Every holiday is spent at the farm, which he loves, but is long hours.  Not complaining, this is a choice we made just stating a fact.  He says he has been living in this limbo so long he feels like he no longer has any hobbies or people we hang out with.  And now we are going to throw in build a house on top of it:)  I was starting to get a little worried about his health and immune system.  For the few hours a week he is home he either crashes or spends hours working on budget for us and the farm. He tries to stay awake to spend time with the kids and go to Blake's games but is so tired.  He seemed to be just living day to day and trying to get it all done. Thursday morning he slept in.  I was getting concerned about him getting to work on time.  It was 6:20 and he hadn't stirred, when he said he had taken the day off.  Excellent!!  We started the day with these amazing Raspberry Muffins.

You are right Natalie, many times I have thought about going back to peach just to see, but can't do it.  He then took the kids to school.  He fixed the breaks on his car, cleaned the garage, got our budget up to date, walked to the post office to see me quick, and made some calls about our well.  He seemed so relaxed and happier then I have seen him in a while.  It was a much needed break and everything he did was on his own time.  We watched a movie with the kids and were in bed early.  It was a great day.  Now back to the grindstone.

  1. I'm glad Dave took a day to recharge! It's a balancing act isn't it.
