A Thought

The fact that there’s a highway to hell
and only a stairway to heaven says a lot about
anticipated traffic numbers

Okay, blogger thinks this format is good and won't change it. My longtime sweetie called and will be back in Huntsville for a year. He asked me to come up for a few days. He has a washer and dryer I can use for the piles of laundry I cannot afford to wash at the laundry. Plus, carrying them hurts me soooo.

I can take a shower every day. I may take two a day. And, I can wash my hair. I will shower and wash my hair as soon as I get there. AND, I will be able to wash it in a few days instead of waiting a week and having to hide in the house the last three days. YAY for friends with water. Plus, his apt won't be so cold.

The hens have been taken care of. They will be confined 24/7. Since they don't like snow, tomorrow will be okay. They will be antsy by Monday.

I have to pack food for them--3 bags of oats and corn, 3 pbj sandwiches, 3 chicken thighs, and 3 bags of vegetables. I only plan on being gone for Sunday and Monday morning feedings, but one day extra for just in case. I trust Tony because he loves animals and he grew up with 100K chickens.

Maybe I will check in. Okay, I will. Keep your fingers crossed that I don't get into any icy spots as I drive.

Your turn
Do you have someone trustworthy to feed or care for your pets/livestock/animals so you can leave home for a few days?

  1. I don't do stairs well, so I suppose that says where I am going.
    Have fun with your sweetie, and revel in all that water.

  3. We are lucky that we have neighbors we trade chicken-sitting with. We watch theirs when they are gone and they watch ours. When we had a milk goat it was a little more difficult. There aren't many people that want to milk a 150-pound goat twice a day. :)

      That is a great trade. Yep, milking a goat would not be on my list of trade skills.

    3. Wean,
      You are so funny! I never thought about it like that. Hey, they both approached me. These are two guys I met on the internet, much better quality than most I meet in real life. Of course, exbf did not want to be bf anymore.

  6. "longtime sweetie* Have I missed something?

    I have just come back from a couple of days house/dog sitting so it seems that I am that *someone trustworthy to feed or care for your pets/livestock/animals so you can leave home for a few days* person.

    I'm hoping my husband and son between them will be that person for me when I am away for 3 weeks.

    Enjoy your hair-washing.

    Barb.

      He is a guy I have loved for years who lives out of town. He is back for a year with his business.

      I would hope son and husband would work out.
      Thank you. I am going to wash it again in about 30 minutes.
