Just wanted to pop in and say I've returned from my unannounced hiatus! I had a long bout of laptop issues, but now my laptop is back and I feel like it's time to return. I was also a little saddened that I was getting in "trouble" here (note that I'm just sensitive, it wasn't serious and I don't blame anyone) for talking about my job at the farm animal sanctuary, but I suppose I can just be quiet or at least non-specific about that and talk more about my own flock. Don't want to stir the pot too much, internet drama is not fun for anyone, especially not the mods, even though the drama isn't intentional on my part. I'm glad to be back, and I'm looking forward to talking fowl and other things with everyone again! It'll be nice to meet some new people and reacquaint myself with familiar friends. I may not be on too much because I'm working twice as much as I was, and NaNoWriMo is coming right up and that will sap more of my time and energy, but I'll try to keep up somewhat anyway! Excited to be re-joining the flock.
