    Ho-hum, working from home today. I'll just turn on the computer to take a peek at BYC 'Stories and pictures of your chickens' section, oh it's my favourite! Click, scroll, that chicken is sooooooooooo cute! Click, search for updates on the adventures of Barbara...oh, she's a good writer that one, so funny!

    Goodness, 1 hour later. Better go get a cup of coffee and get serious about work. Before that I think I'll go outside and check on the chickens. Change water, clean out coop. Sit and watch chickens. Good gracious, that took up another hour!

    Guess I should get a coffee and sit down in front of the computer and get that work done. Hmmmm...has anyone responded to my post about Blossom? Hmph! Why not? Click, scroll....that chicken is SO CUTE!


    It's a wonder I get anything done, ever!

    I'm the same way! I am on here constantly. I took a 6 month break because my friend got a super incubator and I was told no more chickens. I knew looking at the posts would be too upsetting to me. Six months later and I've got 2 babies in the brooder with a 3rd on the way. So much for no more babies. It was actually my landlord's (boyfriend's mom) idea. Who was I to reject her generous offer! [​IMG]
