Like I said barn is clean by 12...so that leaves me all afternoon to do what I need/want to do around the farm/barn.
You said grain farm - correct? I grew up on a grain/hog operation. Busy is seasonal.
I get up at 5 - throw a load of laundry in, feed the cats, clean the litter box and then head out to feed the barn cats, dog, cows, grain, hay, turn out, clean stalls, sweep, put the dog back, then head up to throw the load in the dryer, do dishes, scrub (yes on hands and knees) or vaccum, THEN shower and head to my 40+ hour a week job. BY 7:00 a.m.
Get home at 4:30, change and head out to teach, train, mow, weed, fix fence, shovel snow, etc etc etc
Wash, rinse and repeat. I get a lot of comments on how clean and nice things are (we have a boarding operation). I just expect them to be that way. Boarders are supposed to clean up after themselves, but most to a semi sorta kinda job.
