The Pause Button

I didn’t realize before owning a farm that my worst enemy would be the pause button. What precisely is the pause button? Things that prevent the work from getting done. What I didn’t anticipate was how many things would set mine off. I am normally pretty low maintenance, but since moving out here I’ve had a series of bad luck fit to rival A Series of Unfortunate Events. I will not be as verbose as Mr. Snicket though.




My pause buttons:


  • Rain
  • Excessive Heat
  • Excessive Humidity
  • Allergies (I’ve always had them but something in my field is giving some of the worst reactions I’ve ever had)
  • Other time obligations
  • Tractor failure


And lately my pause button has looked like a dang strobe light.
