Sitting here this morning doing bills, checking chickens and getting the kids started on school work for the morning. I look at my facebook page and start reading posts and I realized that I have absolutely nothing in common with pretty much everyone I know. Most I have known for years and year since high school and my first job. A very few like 4 are current friends. Even the current friends I have little in common with but at least there is something. Old friends that I would say were close enough to be sisters are soooo totally different from me. Manicures twice a week! That would severely cut into my time and money for interesting stuff. date nights, shopping, ladies retreats, spa weekends I cannot relate at all. Now ask me about going out with the hubby for a hamburger, shake and a trip to the feed store and I can relate. Or talk about going to peddlers malls and looking for vintage glassware or old straight razors and we can trade info on the best places to go to. Ok so I have not found time for a trip to the salon in 6 months and currently yes I let a couple gray hairs show. But I did have another baby, get 2 coops done, brought in 26 new chickens, started renovating our house to get it ready to put on the market and moved my family permanently to the farm. I think all that outweighs my hair being a bit longer than normal. right. I get such odd looks when friends hear that we are selling our house in town and going to build our own house mortgage free at the farm. I thought not having a mortgage was a great idea. Others just think I am being extreme. I thought it was pretty cool. It makes you feel kinda lonely. Its like being the ugly duckling. Man I need to go find a pond of swans or something.
