Hubby does his own chicken math (and devises meanest punishment ever)!

    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!

    I thank God for him every day! It's funny- in a moment of exasperation my dad once said "It will take a man with the patience of a saint to marry you." I thought he was kidding, but right after my marriage he told me "I can now die in peace knowing that you have such a patient, kind man to look over you when I'm no longer there to do it." Luckily Dad is still in good health and here to keep an eye on me (not to mention take my calls any time something wonderful or horrible happens), but since he isn't an overly sentimental man his comment means all the more. I'm a very lucky girl to have two such amazing men in my life!

    Now for the good stuff! lol I ordered a dozen Black Copper Marans from Ebay first and then won a BYC auction for a dozen of hinkjc's buff orp eggs! I'm in egg hatching heaven!

    If I saw a preggers relative (n'mind spouse) crying like that I'd freak clean out... finding out it was something that small and I'd do a happy dance... totally see why he didn't go nuts... relief will do that to a person.

    Glad it worked out... but yeah, maybe tilt those nesting instincts into a less expensive direction. [​IMG]

    lol I guess I'll settle for a different kind of crazy! I'm normally not much of a crier so I always feel so silly when I tear up!
