My recovery is going well. I tire out MUCH faster, but I am pushing myself as hard as I can because there is way too much to get done!
The Darlin' Man left on the 23rd and I miss him so much. We stay in touch by email and phone, but it's not the same. Our new motto is *Onward and Upward*....both of us have things we have to do to get to our goals and we are both determined to get everything we need accomplished.
I have been down-sizing.
We are now down to:
4 chickens and 1 rooster
5 goats (Lilac, Champagne, Clarabelle, Charlie, Nip and Nora) Nikki has been sold (deposit on her with the rest to be paid when they pick up)
That's it. I hope to sell Nip this week.
Our feed costs have gone way down. I had to buy hay this week and after a gazillion calls, I finally found someone that would sell me 10 bales. It will be around the middle of April before hay is available again at a decent price.
Packing starts this week. I plan on going room by room, packing up all non-essentials. Also, I am going to toss out all the accumulated *stuff* that no one has any need of. The trash man is gonna hate me!
Also...doing LOTS of laundry. I want to wash everything before packing it. Do you have any idea how many uniforms a guy can manage to store up in 23+ years of military service? ACCK!
Well, back to it, I guess...Onward and Upward!
