    Farmsitting

    You regularly accept farmsitter jobs to pick up extra cash. Then, when the dog at the property you're watching gets out and starts running off, you give chase, barefoot, for over a mile through the woods, until the dog gives up from exhaustion but you feel pretty good.

    Our family is only about a week and a half into PB, but so far:

    You're at a barbecue, and your toddler hands you a nibbled graham cracker to go ask daddy for more meat, even though he previously adored graham crackers & you let him have 1 as a treat. He also takes all night to eat about half of the thing & you end up throwing it away.

    At 33 weeks pregnant (and you have been on bedrest for excessive contractions), you show off squats for your non-Primal friends, and your dh says, "Honey, I really don't think you should be doing that in your condition." - but, it didn't hurt or spark any contractions, and you just don't know why he's so worried, lol!

    Your dh tries to figure out just how much land and hay (because we don't have enough ground) it will take to finish a cow next year, and tries to figure out how many meat chickens we will need to buy to get us through until next year, and how many layers he should also purchase at the same time so that we can stop buying 7 dz eggs/week minimum, just to make it enough for breakfast, let alone hard-boiled egg needs. And he is counting down the days until hunting season so he can get a couple of deer for the freezer.

    Your fridge looks something like this: door - condiments/dressings, top shelf - iced tea and leftover meats, 2nd shelf - 8 heads of romaine (we've already eaten 4) and other large produce that won't fit in the produce drawers, 3rd shelf - cheeses and eggs, drawers - various fruits and veggies. Your freezer and outside fridge are full of more produce and meat.


    You can't wait until the baby comes so that you can actually go out to state parks and hike trails with your family.

    You had a breakfast that was light on protein and fat (1/2 cup walnuts, 1 peach, and 1 cup of yogurt), and all it takes is 1 piece of beef jerky to hold you until a late lunch at 1.

    Your dh goes for a fattier steak at the store, instead of wanting a tenderloin/filet because he realizes that the fat really is the best part of the steak.

    Another one. *sigh*

    When the cat's canned food actually smells good to you because it is very meaty & you're really hungry.

    When your (Korgiest Korg who ever did Korg) boyfriend opens the freezer and yells at you because "BEEF LIVERS DO NOT GO IN THE ICE CONTAINER!"

    And yes they do, because there's no other room and you can damn well put your soda in the fridge door to make it cold.

    Our compatibility goes much deeper than what we put into our respective mouths.
