I haven't, didn't get a ahold of them when I called, I will try again tomorrow before we head out, though it seems a bit pointless by then. I see that you went back in, I hope all goes well for you and that you are feeling much better soon.

Nooooo, I didn't. It has been a long, hard, exhausting, and stressful week. I love my kids, but trying to get anything done with them in near on impossible. I am sure if I had ever had just a few hours to work on it by myself, it would have been done in no time. But no, instead I get two screws in, and someone has stepped in chicken poop. Or needs a drink. Or stubbed their toes. Can't find their underwear, which was on their butt last I checked. Needs their bike helmet on. Need their bike helmet off. Peed their pants. Wants to change their clothes.
And Kaia chopped her hair off while I was working on it yesterday. All those little curls! She went in to pee, and when she seemed to be taking a bit too long, I went in to check on her to see if she needed help. There she sat with her little "child safe" craft scissors, with her hair all around her. *sigh*
Anyway, I am almost done. I finished the frame this morning, got the floor in the coop, and the doors cut. Made a ramp and got it all painted this evening. Then I spent an hour looking for the blasted staple gun to put the chicken wire on, which soaked up almost the entirely of the movie I'd put on to keep them occupied so I could work for a minute. It's a pretty nice electric staple gun, but it still didn't drive the staple all the way in, so I had to hammer each one in as I went. I got one side done, and by then it was really too late to be making so much noise, and I was being eaten alive by mosquitoes anyway. I stretched the wire as tight as I could, but it went all floppy anyway, so I am really frustrated with that as well. Kind of ruins the nice job I was doing! I was rather proud of myself up until that point.
So in the morning I need to get chicken wire on the other side, and the end, then cut the tin roof to size and screw it on. I would have called you for help, but this week has been so crazy and sucky that I was not about to let anyone in my house, and trying frantically as I was to finish the ****** tractor I couldn't take the time to tidy things up and make them presentable.
We were supposed to leave tonight, but I haven't even packed, so I guess we'll leave tomorrow, which I am not looking forward to. We normally make the 3 hour drive at night, so that the kids sleep through it. Ugh. I too exhausted and upset about everything now to care.

Sorry, I didn't hear the phone! I was probably outside baptizing the tractor with tears.
