And I'm shocked at the amount of poopy stuff we've had this past year!! I've had emergency surgery, twice! One would think that as stuff comes out, an added bonus would be losing weight - nooooooo. Unfortunately, that just doesn't happen.
A coyote got one rooster (the other ticked us off, so we got him). Two of our lady chickens have died, with random symptoms, if any.
DFIL passed away. DMIL lives next door, and I am so thankful we are right here.
One of the two wells sprang a leak, DH had to rent a backhoe thingy to dig a giant hole to fix it - in the process cutting the generator wire and power to the chickens.
DH has a different (more stressful, demanding) job although it is more $$, has health benefits, and vehicle.
Spending all day Saturday pressure canning winter squash, it looks as though 6 of my finished 13 quarts are not good (cloudy gelatinous liquid) - argh!!
Sorry about the rant, but gee, do we get a break anytime?
