Taking some time NOW to enjoy these two whenever I can! Hanging out in the tower on their new “park”.
One of many harvester’s mottos is, “Whatever It Takes”. The addition to our fleet could be the definition of this motto for the Z Crew for harvest 2017! I think after last summer with just the two of us loading and unloading the miscellaneous necessities from the back of Frank and my level of frustration with the whole process may have played into the reason we now have a longer car trailer. AND a new storage area for the miscellaneous stuff. THANK GOODNESS!
With each harvest, another year has been added to these old and getting older bones! Without the girls to help with the loading and unloading, it was a little tougher on just the two of us. I never thought he’d actually do something different but when he suggested purchasing the new trailer and his idea included the storage box, I was all in!!
Shelves needed built. Jim thought it should take about a week to finish but more likely two by the time it was completed. He was right – it was closer to two weeks (thanks to the weather).
Jim was telling me what still needed to be done before it was time to start the loading process. I am impressed! But I know Jim and whenever he does something, he does it right and it always looks good!
And once this unit is loaded…it won’t have to be unloaded. My head, arms and back will be forever grateful for this change! The area behind the storage box will be where one of the pickups will be hauled on moving days. Some may view this as being silly but in my eyes, it’s the best update we could have ever done for our operation! When it’s just the two of you, you can’t chance having one of us under the weather; therefore, whatever it takes!
More time with the family…Jenna and I watched Eli “play” soccer on Saturday morning. Jen came prepared and it simply made Eli’s day!
Lookin pretty serious about what he’s supposed to be doing.
There is now a deadline in place for the times I’ll get to be involved with the kids and I’m not liking the thought of leaving. Another “whatever it takes”. The sacrifices we make are real and real hard on my heart! So, I will take advantage of being where I can with them and hope I’m not being a pain in the butt! In about a month, I will be really missing my time with everyone!
