I haven't been on here to update in a while, but I have some good news and bad news. I will start with the bad so the good news can brighten it up haha. My doctors are 90% sure I have endomitriosis, and the pain is so bad at times all I can do is lay in the fetal position and try not to scream. So I am trying to find ways to deal with the pain, as well as trying to give myself the realization that I may never have kids thanks to it. It makes it difficult to work sometimes since grooming is a physically demanding job, and I am the only one in my department, it can get frustrating to everyone when I have to call in. On the good news, my husband and I now are the proud owners of 1 acre, and a 3 bedroom, 2 bath mobile home! It needs work, but it is ours! The house will be getting moved to the property as soon as it dries up a bit. We have already picked out paint colors haha. There are a few places where the drywall needs to be replaced, but it is not a big deal since the roof is not leaking any longer, and we can do that one piece at a time. We also want to redo the flooring, at least in the kitchen and bathrooms. I would really like to pull up the carpet, but my husband wants to leave it for now haha. We also will have to figure out how to install window units in some of the rooms, since we cant afford a central unit. We will also be turning the central ac/heat closet into a pantry since we won't be using it haha. Super excited. It will still be a while before I am able to get back into chickens again, but I hope not too long. :) I plan to build a 12' by 40' building for my poultry that will have 8 4' by 8' coops , and two storage rooms. There will be one coop for turkey, one for muscovy ducks, then six for different breeds of chickens. I also plan to convert an old camper trailer into another coop for a large layer flock. :) I cannot wait.
Both my daughter and daughter in law had endometriosis. Both had to have hysterectomies. But there IS adoption. My son and his wife adopted a little girl last year, what a joy! There is ALWAYS hope. Don't give up!!
