On the other hand, I think people deserve time off. We didn't take vacations for about 10 yrs after we got married and once we started, we realized we like traveling. But I don't think that just because we like it, we shouldn't have a farm. If we milked cows, then yeah-that's pretty much a vacation-killer. But not just general livestock. We have a while to worry about it-we probably won't go on vacation again until next August. Up until this year we've done a vacation every year (sometimes only 2 or 3 days). We may just start with every other year since the price of fuel is so high anymore.
