So hubby and I had agreed to no more hatching eggs after my next shipment comes in. We're being careful with money and while he knows I'm happier with chickens, he also knows I tend to go overboard with all my hobbies. It sounded reasonable so I agreed. THEN I saw an auction that I couldn't pass up and, well, I figured a dozen more couldn't hurt. I mean, they could all go into the bator at once and I'd rather have 24 chances for fuzzy butts as opposed to 12! It sounds reasonable, right? Anyway, as soon as I pressed the bid button I felt guilty. When I won, I felt even worse. By the time he came home I felt just awful because I knew we had made an agreement and I had acted like a selfish little kid and gone against it anyway. I was cooking dinner, nearly in tears and feeling awful (I'm pregnant and hormonal anyway), when hubby walked in. He was worried that something was really wrong and I blurted out the whole story and apologized. He just laughed, asked if that was really all that was wrong, and told me that as punishment I should have to fry up and eat the eggs when they arrived. He was kidding, of course, but I think that's the end of my egg buying this year!
