StorkBrokers... What a great idea!

Ok why is that all these wonderful sites come out after my kids are teens! If you have little one's or are a grand parent you have to check this out!

A great one stop shop(here)     Because we all know how quickly they grow! So instead of storing all those old gently used items or worse yet tripping over toys your child no LONGER plays with( you can forget about ebay or worse yet preparing for a garage sale) and list them here! .

You can also put in an item you are searching for and they will hunt it down for you... SO easy.. So try it out today and let me know what you think. As a BZZZ agent I like hearing back so I can report according to your experience.

One Of The Hardest Things I Have Ever Done

Last night I had to stop playing country gal and actually become one. You see I am the kind of gal that if I can catch a bug in glass and put it outside I will. I hate seeing things suffer so last night I had to make a decision as hard as was to put my sick chicken down. 

I have been nursing her for the last  2 weeks in my kitchen. 
Trying everything I can think of to make her healthy again.

I tried medicine, vitamins, feeding her a personal diet that I made her daily, hand feeding her and giving her special little treats, forcing water down her. Holding her and separating her from the others in my kitchen and nothing worked. She would look good for a couple of days and then look just as bad or worse. Finally I couldn't watch her suffer any longer and had to put her down.  Both my brother and husband let me know they would do it for me if I needed them to(though neither wanted to do it)  Doing so was one of the hardest things I have ever done. But I did (not someone else)  heart broken and all. She no longer suffers and I proved I can do what I need to do. 

 But sometime it just breaks your heart while doing it.
Bye my little Ruthie I will miss you

Confession Good for the Soul

Well here we have another Friday to let it all out. The good, the bad and the ugly

I confess..... today started off horrible. I went out to check on Phoebe (my sitting hen) and hopefully today my new baby chicks to find she destroyed the nest. Almost every egg destroyed by her. 3 weeks of babying her and bringing her treats to destroy all those eggs! Maybe she wasn't ready after all.... Boo Hoo... my sweet baby chicks

I confess... then I came in  to check on my sick hen that I have been nursing inside for almost a week. Hand feeding  and babying in everyway possible to have her bite me. Seriously now she is biting me!!! UGGGH

I confess... that I also discovered that my sweet girls overslept this morning and I don't even care!!! Girls welcome to a day of vacation! Enjoy the day off.

I confess... that there is laundry that needs to be done, a room that needs to be vaccumed and dusted and I SO DON'T CARE!!!!!

I confess... that today I am going to enjoy the beautiful weather God blessed me with. I am going to ignore my house and enjoy my girls. And hope that next week is better!
