    I was just talking to my DH, who has a new job starting up and talking about how we could afford to possible actually get a house where (more) animals are allowed to be.

    DH: I thought we had enough animals.
    Me: Probably for here, you're right, but it doesn't keep me from wishing for some goats and pony for the kids.
    DH: THE LOOK
    Me: Come ON, there has to be some kind of compromise here! You knew I was like this well before you married me.
    DH: I did compromise. The chickens are a compromise.
    Me: The chickens are a COMPROMISE? I thought they were a GOD-GIVEN RIGHT!!!!


    At that point we both lost it (laughing hysterically), but geez. I canNOT infect this man with animal-fever!

    LOL! I wish! Probably because he's the breadwinner he always gets what he wants. :p

    We're not exactly zoned for horses, but I figure no one will mind a mini my my backyard [​IMG]

    LOL! I've done that and he very passive-aggressively makes everything with that animal a living hell.

    He's a nice guy, but he gets his way.
