What's Been Taking My Time

Every night I have good intentions of sitting down to blog. Honest! Then I remember I have to go close up the baby chicks for the night. Make sure the heat lamps are on in both brooders. I check to make sure Buttons is settled down for the night and not in labor. Also check to make sure baby monitor in her pen is on and working. I come in again thinking I will blog but see the supper dishes waiting on me. I do the dishes and when I finally sit down to blog... I fall asleep on the sofa. Here are some photos of what has been taking up my time.
Checking on Buttons even though her due date is April 4th.

Getting a squirrel out of Stanleigh's cage because I forgot to latch the door.

Checking on Buttons (even though she isn't due till April 4th)

 Trying to figure out out to be a bird whisperer like my brother Don

Checking on Buttons because you know she is due to kid April 4th.

Getting the squirrel out of Stanleigh's cage again because I forgot to latch the door... again.

Checking on Buttons because even though she isn't due until April 4th she is going to pop if she gets any bigger.

Playing with the baby bunnies so they are nice and friendly when they go to their new homes at Easter.

And playing with more baby bunnies.

And another baby bunny.

Making fruit and dip for a baby shower.

Still trying to figure out how to get the birds to eat out of my hands like they do my brothers.

Writing to my grandson.

Quick trip to the mountains to see Skyler, go to a gala with my oldest daughter, and celebrate Kristine, Melody's and my birthday.

And check on Buttons because even though she isn't due until April 4th she is having discharge,losing her ligaments, and her babies have dropped.

I'm exhausted just reading about your evening, but it does seem to be a busy time of the day here too. Looking at poor Buttons it looks like she's ready to pop. How the heck will she make it that long?

PS It sure is hard to leave a message now. Lots of hoops to jump through.

Maybe it's Stanleigh unlatching the door. (I could've taught her) Better go check on Buttons. I hear she's due April 4th. Is that this year?

Haha. Stanleigh gets so mad and stomps if I don't give her the slice of bread first. Doesn't matter if I have greens carrots or apples. She wsnts bread first with every meal. I think the squirrel opens the door. I now have a bungie cord across the door.

I thought I had comments set where anyone could comment and no verifying. Will check and see what I can do.

Peggy Lineberry said...

LOL I am thinking she won't go but a few more days. She is so huge she can hardly wslj.
