The Bag Lady spend the weekend going round and round the field in the tractor. She is hoping the Cow Whisperer is going to spell her off today so she can get some of her own work done - fun and exciting stuff like laundry, vacuuming, scrubbing toilets and grocery shopping!
Here's a little taste of what she did, hour after hour:
Scintillating, isn't it?
She had to slow down to take the video because the tractor bounces quite a lot over the rough ground, but she wasn't going all that much faster, honest!
She had a serious case of tractor fatigue last night, so spent an hour or so soaking in the tub. Being a 'farmer' isn't all it's cracked up to be - she'd rather deal with the animals, thankyouverymuch.
She also thinks that if she could spend...oh, let's say a month or so doing this, she would certainly lose some weight! She discovered early on that if she eats, even a small amount, then bounces around awhile, it makes her feel slightly ill. Remember when you were a child, and went to the county fair/amusement park/whatever, stuffed yourself with hot dogs/cotton candy/sno cones, then got on the roller coaster...that slightly sick feeling in the pit of your stomach? Or, for you exercise-types, the feeling you get from doing one too many crunches? (Although, if you are an exercise-type, perhaps that feeling is what you are striving for....!) The Bag Lady thought she was being virtuous by taking only some carrot sticks and a couple pieces of the Laughing Cow cheese (plus copious amounts of water - it's dry, dusty work!) when in fact, she couldn't even eat those! Her abs are sore from trying to maintain her balance whilst bouncing around (to say nothing of how her back is feeling!)
Take a moment today to be grateful to the farmers of the world who feed us - it's hard friggin' work!
