It's hard to be a frontier woman....

My son is so brilliant! We went out for pizza tonight and Mark got a pitcher of beer, so I had a few, which is rare for me. I was feeling a little buzz and we were getting ready to stop at Dairy Queen for some ice cream and I was complaining about still needing to milk the goat when we got home. Mark always refers to my farm stuff as my frontier woman stuff. He was saying well the frontier women did it, and I was saying I thought it was easier for them because that was their life. They weren't trying to balance frontier life with "normal" life. I was trying to explain to him why I thought it was harder and Logan came up with the perfect way to put it.

"It's hard to be a frontier woman when Dairy Queen is 5 miles down the road"

I love how kids are so astute and can really say it like it is, without getting bogged down in the details.

Yes, Logan, it is hard being a "frontier woman" or even just a regular, old, suburban homesteader when Dairy Queen is 5 miles down the road ... and Papa Johns pizza delivers ;).

Your son is most definitely brilliant! That's exactly how I feel...I'm pretty sure if I didn't have computers and digital cameras and endless sports, farm life would be a lot easier!

You know you're officially a redneck when you followup a few beers with a trip to DQ, don't you?
