Ever have those days when you feel like you've got it all together? Like nothing can stop you and you are truly Superwoman? I've been having a month like that! Up at 4am, housework and chores done by 5, workout finished, dressed and ready for the day by 7. You feel like nothing can stop you....
and then you AND your spouse come down with a cold.
The next thing you know there are Kleenex's (well toilet paper, cause I'm too cheap to BUY Kleenex!) all over the house. The bed goes unmade, cause there's always someone in it. The house doesn't get it's daily vacuum and you are all discombobulated.
You're sleeping til 7am all the while you toss and turn realizing that the chickens need out, the cats need fed, and the bunny is dying of thirst.
Then you laugh at yourself saying 'and you wanna get a cow'.
On mornings like this I'm sure her teets would have burst before I'd
have the gumption to go out a milkin'.
You lie in bed realizing that this is the day school resumes after a nice three week break.
You've forgotten how to divide fractions and break down sentences.
You hear a chicken in the kitchen, ya, the one that you gave a bath and a blow
dry to last night, cackling for her breakfast.
Helen's hungry, and she wants company.
I didn't tell you Helen was in the house?
Oh yes. I've made her a diaper (she hates it).
She's had a bath and a blow dry.
She's on antibiotics.
I heard her 'rattling' a little in the coop over the weekend.
Seems she has a cold too.
We've had some good talks over hot tea.
She wants to start an advice column.
Would you take advice from a chicken?
