Farm Girl Problems

Farm girls live an awesome life. But it's not without incident. There are things that happen that farm girls know a little too well. Here are some of our favorite Farm Girl Problems:

Seeing peanut shells on my kitchen floor during peanut harvest because you have to taste test.

Having chicken feathers attached to everything even when you think you got them all off.

Finding corn in the washer. Soybeans in the dryer.  Hay in your bra.

Painting your nails to hide the dirt when you are going out in public.

Being in amazing shape without a gym membership.

Sweeping the kitchen floor three times in one day and STILL finding hay and mud.

Having really, really weird tan lines.

Going out of town to pick up equipment and calling it vacation.

Finding hay in your hair.

Having to stop whatever you are doing to chase cows that got out.

Working on holidays because the farm never closes.

Buying boots is a more complicated decision than buying a car.

Thinking you are getting really tan but then it's just dirt that you wash off in the shower.

Realizing all of your clothes are stained.

Always spending more money on your animals than on yourself.

Taking a 'vacation day' because it is raining.

Spending more time with your livestock than your significant other.

Redefining romantic to be a ride together in a tractor or sharing sandwiches in the truck.

Wearing men's work clothes because there aren't a lot of women's work clothes!

Sleeping in…NEVER. Forced to be a morning person.
