Alright, so today I got in a real bad, hurtful fight with my mother. It was real bad, and by the end of it I was ready (and about to try) to rip my hair out. I was shaking, and I couldn't stand still. I removed myself from the situation because I was so upset and shakey, so I went to the chicken pen where my girls are spending their day. I go in, throw a towel down, and just sit and cry. Now usually when I am this upset my poor dog is in a panic trying to figure out how to help me, and then I feel worse because of what HE goes through. Not these chickens.. They kept about their buisness, pecking at the ground, doing their chicky things while I cried like a baby. They didn't even look at me, and I was pretty worked up. Cluck cluck cluck, the sound actually soothed me, and I finally calmed down enough to pay them some attention. Joon, my BR, jumped on my leg and gave me that chicken sideways look like "what's up mum?" I couldn't help but smile even though I was still crying a little. I stayed out there for about 2 hours, just watching and holding my two girls, both of which put up with my blubbery self. I feel better now, it's been a bit and me and my mom have lessened the tension somewhat between us. I am just glad I have the girls, who stay totally nonchalant, and I can just freak out and them just roll their eyes and go about their day. Just had to share.. Not that this matters, but it kept me from doing some dumb stuff that I usually turned to when I have been so upset.
