About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

Feeling Pressed, Hockey Pictures

Things are starting to get hectic around here and I don't like hectic. I like a nice slow snail's pace. Seems everyday something is going on.

Today I have to get to the grocery store and feed store because we didnt get there yesterday, because Ian had to work over, because he didnt work over like he usually does on Wednesday, because we went to the hockey game. So now I am going to the store alone, again.


I havent finished my decorating for Christmas, we are going Saturday afternoon FINALLY to get a tree. By the time I get it all up it will all be over. :(

When am I supposed to do the planner for school next week? I usually do it on Sunday. It takes about three hours to do...not a short task.

Know what, I was only going to take the week of Christmas off, but now I am thinking I really NEED the week before the weekend before Christmas OFF so I can get my LIFE in order.

I am not feeling very Christmasy. Oh we havent even gone shopping at all for Shelby.

We will, but good grief.

I am sorry, just not in a good mood this morning, was up half the night with a burning stomach to boot. I sure hope today gets better.

I loaded some pictures of the hockey game, and I have some video to share.

I will put those on a seperate entry...this is just a whine and moan rant..sometimes you got to let it out.

It's always stressful before and after Christmas..SO much to do!  I hope everything slows down for you soon.  Do you know what your getting Shelby besides the doll...were you the one getting that doll??  Sometimes I get my journals mixed up! lol  Have a great day!

I am feeling like you are, nothing is getting done and there is a pile of things to do!!  I have to go to the feed store too, horse & litter!!  You said it best, by the time things get in order and done it will be over.  It is a hectic time of year, take a long, deep breath and know you aren't alone in your feelings!

I have done very little shopping myself. No decorations have I put up yet. I will try to do that this weekend-hopefully. I usually have everything done by this time except the Christmas cooking of course. Have a safe trip going to see your Grandmama. I hope your tummy eases up soon. Hugs, Helen

Too much to do and no time to think!  I tend to get a little crazed myself when things get that way.  So far, so good here.  Praying your days slow down enough you can enjoy them.  -  Barbara

You know, I've discovered that when things don't get done, the world doesn't end. ;)

We haven't gotten a tree yet, either, with moving and all. It does not really feel like Christmas at all...but we are going to be happy once we move in.

I have two chicken questions for you:

I was going to order my from mcmurrays (?)  My husband thinks 25 chickens for a 5-8 member family is too much. Since they are mixed sexes, I was thinking we would probably have about twelve chickens that lay...but we won't kill and eat the roosters, so what do you do? Can you get just females? Is twelve enough?

love, Kas
