I really Never Thought My Life Would Be Like This, I always saw it going in a different direction. I grew up on a farm in Lewis County, KY. it was a cattle farm.
We raised around 100 head of beef cattle, at one time we had 500 head of hogs too.
We raised 40+ acres of tobacco one time and a few acres of corn but a whole lot of hay. I was on the tractor doing most of the farm jobs at the age of five.
Dad taught me to drive and operate the tractor enough so that he trusted me. Enough to do the jobs safely and without him watching over me.
When I was about 20 years old. I found out that if anything ever happened to my dad that my mom would sale the farms. The one reason I had stuck around and worked so hard for was the farm.
Now I found out it would just be sold off, so I didn’t stay around after that. It was kind of like a slap in the face because I could’ve after high school left like everyone else did, but I didn’t.
I had made my plans to take over the farms and the plans had just suddenly changed.
It made me mad and upset and I couldn’t get away fast enough. I ended up marrying and moving around the country quite often for different jobs.
I became a truck driver and worked for 18 years doing the best I could to provide, I never had to rely on anyone.
The irony in my marriage as we were together as long as I was a truck driver. In other words, we were apart a lot and likely was the reason it went on as long as it did.
The reason I stopped driving a truck was that a job-related injury prevented me doing the job requirements.
Never Thought My Life Would Be Like This Now what do I do
My marriage lasted a couple of years after being hurt and being home 24/7.
I’m not sure if it was because of the lack of money or just being in contact with each other was the demise of the marriage.
I had been married for 1/2 my life what was I to do now?
Certainly being in a bad marriage makes a person gun shy to ever do it again. But I think it has to do with all the health problems I developed over the years that I am still single.
I guess myself and Mutt will just live out our days together. I just wished my life had turned out differently.
