Well, it's been a heck of a day and a heck of a week. I got my associate's degree in the mail on Tuesday. The degree is for classes I'd taken a few years ago but if felt really good to finallly get the paper in my hand. Thursday I found out my Dad has been hospitalized for congestive heart failure. He seems to be doing a bit better since he's been in the hospital. We're not sure how long he will be there or how severe everything is. Our fridge decided to quit working properly. We had to replace it today. We have a used one that my mother in law had. It's not the greatest but it works, and it was free. We also got a sheet metal roof put on our chicken coop today. I haven't had time to go look at it but I'll try and take some pics soon. In a few days my six black star chicks will be arriving. Tomorrow I have to finish setting up my brooder. Construction is also underway on my chicken tractor. My husband will probably finish the tractor sometime this week. I just figured I'd share my crazy week with everyone. Some bad, some good. Lots of chicken related happenings.
