A lot has happened in my world since my last post, but I’m sure it has for you as well.
Let’s start off with how I fell off the blogosphere…
A few months ago it was brought to my attention that I could be doing more around the ranch. A few other things were said to me and it really got me down. It was a huge blow to my ego since I really felt and still feel like I am doing as much as I physically can.
Besides, I wasn’t raised doing physical labor and it’s definitely not something you can learn overnight. I truly believe with time, I will feel more comfortable working around big pieces of equipment and animals that weigh more than me.
Looking back I realize I took it way too personal, but at the time I began to feel like a failure so, I backed off the blog for a while. I started to think maybe I hadn’t earned the title “Rancher’s Wife”. It took me a few months and a few good pieces of advice from some good friends to realize that I have.
Because I’m here, I’m trying and it’s working.
So, now that it’s been decided (at least in my world) that I’m not a failure I want to tell you about some recent successes!

Not bad, eh?
