i just need to crawl thru today and then i have 4 days off. not a good night last night, i am tired. the dogs were restless and reactive..hey...just like me! so was it them or me with the problem?
i don't even want to think about that one today...i really just want to go back to bed and sleep for a few more hours.
we were kind of stalled with the stuff going on out at the barn by the snow yesterday..i am happy with how it is going...i like how it it coming together but i am not sure i can stand another few weeks of animals not being able to run around and do what they like to do every day....and i really hate seeing all of our barnyard birds stuck in freaking cages.
i keep telling myself soon this will all be over and we can all get on with more normally living each day again. but i am worried cuz holy shit..that grant we were awarded to cover the costs better see us thru to the end of this very big plan too. and mostly i am driving myself nutz with the stress of trying to plan an appropriate and efficient chicken area when i haven't a clue. can you imagine all of this work and money spent..and i make some giant big planning ooops?
can't wait til this is all a thing of the past...i am tired of obsessing over chicken coops.
so..we brought in a big container to deal with our monsterous manure. i was hestitant to do it because it is another $150 a month just to deal with all of the poop our barn animals put out but it had to be done...that last manure pile we just removed was beyond insane. we had to get rid of it for the new chicken area and i am glad it is finally gone.
the container ain't working so great so we are having to figure out a way for it's use to be easier. it looks like we will have to ramp and catwalk it to dump in from the top and that is another expense i wasn't counting on.
oh well... ripples in the ongoing freaking saga of "our chickens need a better home" pond.
deep breath and keep yer eye on the ball carol...while our birds were safe, well fed, clean and dry..they were still living in a slum..a few more weeks and they will not be living in a palace but they will living in a decent and nicer and easier to care for home so this upside down worriness has got to be good.
i just want it to be happily ever after for all of us soon.
