cutest little balls of fluff ever. The kids are all obsessed and I
don't think the chicks have had much time on the ground. Anyway today,
violet was mauling them as usual and left the cage open. I walked past
it who knows how much later, and the cage was open and Flutter was
GONE! After a brief search of the house, I realized that the outside
door was open and that my cat who was obsessed with the chicks had
most likely taken it. I ran out side and heard a faint chirp from
below the deck. I looked under and saw the tail of the cat. I screamed
and stomped the cat away, but the chick was frozen with fear and
possible injuries. I got a screwdriver to disassemble the deck, but I
couldn't get even one of the 12 or so screws required to remove the
board to budge. The cat, meanwhile, was still lurking close by and
made several attempts to reclaim it's prize. About this time, my
school aged kids came home. Hazel was a wreck. I had tried to crawl
under the deck, but couldn't get my butt through (this was one of the
saddest and most surprising developements). I begged Thomas to help.
After much convincing and crying, he went for it. He was crying for
the chick to come closer, while I was poking blindly with a giant
piece of rebar trying to urge it closer to Thomas. After a very tense
few minutes he cried that he had it, and tossed it's cold, fightened,
slightly mangled body out to our welcoming arms. He braved slugs and
mud and darkness to save that baby. He's my sweet hero. I've never
been so proud. Anyway, that chick better make it, or I'm gonna be

I've been doing lots of really boring stuff that is most likely not going to get me any comments, so I am going to leave that stuff out, and stick to shock and offense. I am pregnant, and I am going on my third day of no showering. Now only one of those things are true, but which one? Also, none of those might be true...
Notice no pictures, not yet. I don't think you guys are ready for them.

This is just a preview. I have about 4 months of pictures to update you all on. Aren't you excited! Don't try to hide it, I know you are. I am going to just start like I never left, and only read past posts if I get really bored one day. I am there for you all now. Ready to let you all know what I think about what you have going on, because you need it, and I need it.
Until tomorrow. That's when I am really going to get started.

garden in a while. We've been eating peas, green beans, carrots,
green onions, chives, spider covered lettuce, and thus is our first
zuchinni. It is so worth the effort. It's like giving birth
everyday, but then I eat my babies.

in bed all day feeling sorry for myself, but I was caught completely
off guard by this massive thunder storm. I get the feeling she
doesn't want me to be sad today.
So, to brighten everyone's day, including my own-a gratuitous shot of
my fore mentioned praying mantis.

it didn't make it. The truth is, I was shocked that it lived the four
days that it did. Just moments ago, Atticus brought me a handfull of
the things he had collected outside (it is quite normal for him to
bring me bugs and other gross things). Wedged in his hand, between
the cable plug and the grass he had pulled, was this baby bird. Not
living, obviously. And that is what brought me back to blogging...

She is prego, you guys. I tried to leave a comment on her blog, but
I'm having issues, obviously. So, I thought I would use this stage to
congratulate her. Amanda, I am so excited for you!
I'd make you a blanket, but it sounds like you're set.

that promises to turn me from flab to fab. I have put on about 10
pounds over the past year, and feel myself heading in the wrong
direction, health wise. I feel tired, depressed, and although I am
still squeezing into most of my pants, it isn't pretty. Flesh all
over the place, grossness. My sister let me borrow her pirated copy
of p90x. She said she wasn't quite ready to start it.
So I popped in the into disc. It was a lot of before and afters, and
a lot of "bring it". Then onto disc one...ab ripper. Oh. My. Gosh.
I got about 8 minutes into it before I started siezing up. They keep
saying it's not for beginners, so if you're a beginner, just take
breaks. I took a bunch of breaks the first 8 minutes and then a 9
minute break, there at the end. I think I'm going to have to start
over tomorrow. Or maybe I'll bring it later today? Getting ripped is
going to be hard, you gize.
