Trying not to get in a panic here ... I was supposed to pick up my ducks today but haven't heard from the seller since Saturday. I left two messages and then stopped calling because I don't want to be some crazy stalker.
The ad is still up on Craig's list so I don't think she's sold them all. She had a lot of different breeds of ducks to sell and did promise to hold the 4 Khakis for me. I offered to pay her right away with Paypal and she said no need, she would prefer I bring cash. I offered to drive down that night but it would have been 7pm or later when I arrived and she said not to worry, the ducks weren't going anywhere and she would prefer Tuesday around 5:30 so I agreed ...
... but she hasn't given me her address yet and no responses to my two calls.
.............................really trying to just wait patiently assuming she will contact me when she can and hopefully I will still be picking up my ducks tonight (or another night if something has come up to make this night no longer possible). I'll be sad if she sold them to someone else after telling me she would hold them for me.
I bought them a kiddie pool yesterday, a watering thingie and food thingie, organic layer feed and bedding. I cleaned out the old chicken coop and found pails for nesting (even though I think the stress of moving to a new home will halt any egg production for a while). Now I'm sitting here fretting like a hen on eggs LOL! I want to go pick up MY ducks ........... wahhahhh. *cries big alligator tears*
Please send some good vibes my way.
ETA: I was worrying for nothing. She just called (she had been texting my work phone not realizing I wasn't getting any of those messages because that phone has to stay at work). I pick them up at 2 today .. eeeeeeeeeeeee .. picks to follow.
