I'm Being Falsely Accused

    Saint though I am, Anne is claiming that it's my fault that there is peat moss on tables, lamp shades, and pretty much everything else in the living room and dining room. Just because there's peat moss in the brooder box that I have in the living room doesn't mean the peat moss dust isn't coming in from an open peat package that's out in the front yard. It seems like everytime I do something wrong around here, I GET BLAMED FOR IT!

    LOL I'm in the same situation;)

    DH blames ME for the shredded newspapers ect. Just because I have newspapers in the brooder! The nerve! How does he know that we don't have paper shredding faries that just happen to scatter them in front of the brooders! [​IMG]

    I got blamed for all the chick dust from the pelleted bedding in the camp trailer. Just because I had two brooders of chicks in there, too!

    We all feel your pain, joe!

    Maybe it is time for the brooder to go outside with the peat moss.

    Quote:I'm dancing as fast as I can to get the coop(s) finished, but it has been raining almost daily. Last night and today we had a flood; ten inches of rain fell this morning. For the first time ever my pond overfilled and the creek flooded the east field; normally it goes only into the west field because the banks are lower on that side. I have never seen a spring with so much rain coming down practically every day. It really outdid itself last night and this morning. It was like a river was falling out of sky.
    Seriously, don't buy a used car from Indiana for a very long time. I've seen thousands of them today totally under water.

    Right here with ya in Indiana. We'll never get our run finished at this rate.

    My DH chipped in and helped with the housework this morning and earned a gazillion brownie points... couldn't hurt to give that a try.

    I just learned that my ducks could have gone outside a long time ago. I even heard one quack today instead of peep. This means I have to get my act together and build a pen for them. What I'll probably end up doing is juggling all the chickens around so the ducks can have the tractor.

    I feel your pain.
