Hey farmgirls! I was looking to see if there was any ladies out there 35 and under. Would love to see which farmgirls share the same age range as me. This can be a place for us to come together and converse about what is going on in our lives. Come join me!

Krista

Erin - you are so funny! The nice thing about being over 50 will be my children will be a little older, so perhaps I can finally sleep through the night ;)

Krista - my niece is pregnant and getting married. My oldest daughter will be a teenager this year. My hubby will be retiring this year. Yup feeling old ;)

ahhh yes Alicia... we are now showing our age.... sticking our tongues out at one another ;)

Krista - you are so young, lol. Many many years before getting to the 50s group ;)

So now that I actually feel half human, with no headache, and a normal temperature, I really do not feel as old :) There is something about sickness that just seems to drag you down, both physically and mentally! Anyways, today my hubby gets home :) So very very excited! The medical board decided they still want to medically retire him :( Soooooo we are appealing to the secretary of the Air Force. It is so frustrating that he has had the same issues for the last 5-6 years, and yet it has only been the last 6 months or so that they have tried to kick him out. I swear I think it is a money thing! If they kick him out, he only gets about half his retirement, whereas if he hits his 20 years, he gets the full! It is not like we can live off the full retirement, so them wanting to take half by kicking him out less than a year before he retires is just not okay! Not counting any vacation days he may have at that point, we need to get to October 2nd... then he will get his full retirement! That's it! Silly government! On an upside, my dd turns 7 tomorrow :) She has given me her menu for the big day... yorkshire puddings with honey butter, snowman pancakes (you put two pancakes on top to make the snowman shape, use a strip of bacon for the scarf, chocolate chips for the eyes, nose, mouth, and buttons, and mini marshmallows along the bottom of the plate for the snow), and sausage for breakfast. For dinner she wants spaghetti, salad, and garlic bread. :) Then on Monday we are hoping to go to the zoo as a family, to celebrate :)

That sounds like a wonderful birthday celebration! Can you send me a picture of the Yorkshire pudding? I am curious, as I have never made these! I am still getting over a sinus infection (remember when I was pregnant with Sawyer and had one and they put me in ICU, Shannon?) Brad retires THIS year, right? Ugh.... You know it is always money with the government... :(

Oh Alicia! I hate that you are STILL getting over a sinus infection! I do remember that other one :( I'll try to send a picture after we make them... they are a very English bread, often served with a roast and roasted potatoes. Not sure why she wants them, but hey, it works. I have some tallow in the freezer to use for them :) The hardest part for me, is I use einkorn flour with them and still haven't gotten the flour to liquid ratio quite right! Brad does retire this year! His official 20 years would be October 22nd, but they give you 20 days of leave to find a house, so we have to get to at least October 2nd. He SHOULD have about 30 days of vacation, which ups it another thirty days, but we are not counting on it because who knows what could happen between now and then! It generally takes the secretary 6 to 8 months to decide whether to medically retire or return the individual to duty... That would put us to the middle of July to the middle of September. If we get to the middle of July and he says to medically retire, we can buy a little more time by getting reevaluated for benefits by the VA. There are times I wonder if it is worth the stress and aggravation, but I think that is what they are counting on - us giving up!

And I know you won't!! Not much longer to stick it out!!! My sinus infection is a WHOLE lot better than it was a few days ago. At that time I was considering getting "sucked out" HA!!! That's what they had to do 3 years ago!

Wow, Shannon that sounds awful. I'm so sorry you have to deal with all that. I saw a headline on drudge today that reminded me of you... About a neighbor suing someone for having to listen to their kids playing outside. You haven't had good luck huh? I'll pray for your situation with the AF to work out to your advantage.

Alicia I'll pray for your sinuses too. I'm glad they're feeling better.

I'm starting to feel like I'm getting sick too. :( sometimes if I just take extra vitamins it'll hold it off. We'll see.

Shannon, I am so sorry to hear your situation. I hope everything works out for the better. I feel that it may be a pain to go through all those issues but you should stick it out. To only have to make it to October to get a full retirement will be that much better on your family. I have come to learn how interesting the government can be. My husband just got a job with them in November. Some things that go on just make my jaw drop.

Happy birthday to your daughter. I hope she has an amazing day. Enjoy the zoo and all the wonderful food.

Alicia, I am so glad that you are starting to feel better. Being sick is the worst.

Erin, get feeling better. I hope your extra vitamins with help kick your sickness to the curb.

I am 36... that is close to 35. I get to 37 in May but I have thought that 50 and up group sure talks a lot. Maybe you will let another old timer talk in your less that 35 group ;o)

Shannon, I feel like so many things are heading toward the "let's make it hard so they give up" method of dealing with people. Whether it is insurance, work, or even the satellite tv company my husband dickered with for 45 minutes last week just to get our bill down to a reasonable rate. I think it is so sad that they can't just help you for all the service and effort that you guys put in.

Hahaha Emily! I will be 37 in April.... Thankfully it looks like they will let us older people hang out too :)

Erin - oh how I feel for the mother of the children not allowed to play outside! I miss my old house at times, but my goodness is it nice to feel safe! How are you feeling?

The government/military is definitely "interesting". I guess in some senses of the word, they take care of their people.... Sort of. My cousin was kicked out at about 18 years due to his knee... They kicked him out, not even medically retired! He lost all of his benefits! Sure they gave him a severance check, but you pay that back out of your VA benefits over time! It is heart breaking! I just found out, though, that the Army does not do that to their guys.... If they are at 17 years, and injured, they let them stay in until they hit 20 and put them in a special squadron. Why then does the Air Force kick people out... The branch of the military that supposedly takes better care of the family unit?! Okay..l done venting ;)

I don't know if there's any straight answer about why the government does or doesn't do something. I'm not sick, yay! But my son and husband are. Boo. Last week I took them to a McDonalds play place after a round of dental appointments and I'm pretty sure that's what did it. Although I guess it could have been the dentist office. They only get fast food maybe 5 times a year, and it was so cold out I thought I should let them get out some energy there, kind of as a reward too for being so good at the dentist. Makes me think twice about doing that again. :(

Of course Emily! Please join us!

Shannon- That is so terrible. I was just sharing your story with my husband and found out that he is a part of the civilian part of the air force. He is hoping for the best for your husband and hopes all works out.

This is the worst time of year for sickness. I hope everyone gets feeling better. Get your vitamin c!
