Better day today :D

Not SO much laundry today. I got it all done and the Auditor comes in and he says. You kick ass at laundry LOL He's bummed that I don't work the next few days. Anyhow, I have another baby that hatched so the tiny one has a friend :D AND the third egg is pipped and complaining in the shell. I'm hoping to have another baby in the morning. The other two are out of the incubator and eating and drinking well. I can rest knowing they will all be ok now :D That one is just SO tiny! She is a bantam and the other chick is twice her size. It's just adorable. They are very nice to each other though :D Tomorrow is a clean day for sure. I have LOTS to do around here. Yesterday and the day before I did nothing but spend time with Nic and the chickens. He loves going out to the hen house with me. Although Steele (my cochin rooster) has kicked him twice now on the back. I told Nic the second time he did it to kick him back (not hard but enough to scare him) so he knows who's boss. He hasn't done it since. I do NOT allow Nic in the hen house without me becasue many kids get hurt around roosters. Nic is so jumpy I can see how Steele sees him as a threat to his hens. He's VERY protective with them. Nic now knows to move slowly around the chickens and to go in to get the eggs and move on out of there. Steele just ignores me totally. He never tried that sort of thing with me. I can pick him up and he's totally fine. He's my big baby for sure :D
Well, I better get my butt to bed. Nic is up early in the morning and I can see already I'm going to be VERY tired tomorrow! It's already 1:30 am. OH BTW Kallie...I DO work this weekend both Sat and Sun :( Otherwise I would have taken a ride over there. It's been a LONG time since I have been there. Whats going on that you are there this weekend?

Glad you had a better day :) I am glad Steele isnt being too aggressive with Nic. None of mine seem to have that tendency to be aggressive, wonder why Steele is. I am glad the babies are going to be alright now. I got cleaning to do today too, along with the usual chores outside. Have a good day off and enjoy it. :) Love ya, Kelly

Congrats on your baby chicks!
And so sorry about your bad broody :( That's heartbreaking after 3 weeks of waiting.

I changed the name of my blog. I took my name out of the title. I didn't want anyone to be able to find me so easily by just typing in my name.

New name is: A middle aged mom's upside down world.

New address is:

If you're a follower you should get updates as you're all still listed, but to be on the safe side, you could delete and re-add yourself if you just have me in your favorites and follow that way, you'll need to add my new address and delete the old.

My aunt was here from TX. So we went up. It is so funny we saw several people we hadn't seen in a long time.

Hopefully we can get to see eachother one of these days. Steph's having a candle party sat but you are probably working - call me at work emailing you #'s

Love ya
