One Thousand-Two Hundred and Eighty-Eight Posts
This post is all about not wanting to see my last post at the top of the blog. Otherwise, I am way too busy and tired to be sitting here and posting to Chickenblog. Alex and I are just back from a high school open house, and we are hoping more than ever that they pull his name from the hat in the lottery. What a great school.
Last night was another school meeting to go over field trip details for Max's class. He is not looking forward to the field trip at. all. Poor guy.
Robotics. Wow. Very busy, which we knew, but now we are in the middle of the process and making the schedules work and doing drop-off and pick-up and kind of putting a lot of other things on the back burner. It's worthwhile, but intense.
Geoff is still at work. I miss him.
William is an awesome, reliable, patient, tender, attentive babysitter and I owe him a little more than just my praise and gratitude.
All 3 hens are in full on egg production and I actually have an egg surplus. Is it time to learn how to make a soufflé?
Fantam is a pretty hen. So, I guess it's kind of obvious that I like chickens and all, but seriously... they make me very happy. And yes, I know it's kind of ridiculous, but how lucky am I? I can tap into joy.
Did I say I have no time to post? Oh man. I have been cleaning and moving furniture and making donations and driving and shifting and sorting. And I am tired. In about 15 minutes I am going to herd all these children to their beds and turn off all the lights, and then I am going to sleep. But first I am going to listen to them and admire them and laugh with them.
I have been enjoying your comments, and I feel an apologetic post coming on... in person, I am quiet. I am a listener, attentive, reflective. But quiet, which does not translate well in a blog or email... unless I remember to write my reflective, attentive thoughts. I am sorry that I do not reply to every comment, but believe me I read every one and smile or feel bolstered or encouraged. You make me feel like a part of a community, like a friend.
Okay. Time to turn my attention to WAMMO.
