Turns out 5mg Lorazepam isn’t enough to euthanize a chicken. It just makes them high AF.

Thursday after I gave her the meds, I stayed up with her until 3:30am and she was still alive. I put her in a kennel and went to bed. She rallied and spent a warm weekend out in the yard with the other girls. Even laid on the deck in the sun.

Today I went out to check on her and she didn’t leave the coop this morning. She was laying on the floor.  I brought her in and gave her a warm bath and a blow dry. She ate a few kernels of corn but won’t drink. 

She’s laying in my lap and won’t open her eyes. 

Waiting. 

Poor woman’s standing desk

messy desk with a cute JRT under it
Elli is a big help. (Please excuse the mess. Cluttered desk, brilliant mind, yadda.)

I’ve been having a lot of sciatica pain and finding it hard to work more than an hour at a time. I started looking at “standing desks.” $500-$1000+?! Um, no.
Four 12″ high concrete blocks from Menards for $7.58. BOOM. DONE.
P.S. My desk is a 3’x8′ table that a church was gonna throw away. Works just fine. Bonus: loyal dog that sticks to me like stink on shit. Comes with $2 rug from The ReStore.
I know, sitting on two 12 packs of soda stacked on a bar chair doesn’t do my back any favors; so I did invest $74 in a good ergonomic drafting chair from Amazon that’ll arrive tomorrow.
But $7.68. I’m pretty damn proud of myself.

(from the book of faces) All couples – make this your status and answer honestly!

I love you, Tom. You mean everything to me. You’re my person, my rock, my home, my ollyollyoxenfree and you will be forevermore.

Who’s older?
Him. 47 on 1/14.
Same high school?
Nope. Him: Solon High School. Me: Coldwater High School. 377 miles apart. And somehow we found each other. ??
Most sensitive?
Flip a coin. He’s more outwardly sensitive, and I’m more inwardly sensitive. We’re both a little paranoid and tend to overanalyze social cues. I’m worse.
Eats out the most?
Him. He loves restaurants and trying new things. I like comfort food and eating what I’m used to.
More social?
Him. Emphatically, him. He has to drag me out of the house.
Most stubborn?
Flip a coin. I might say he is and he might say I am.
Who’s the funniest?
He is definitely more witty and funny. I roll my eyes a lot, but he really is.
Most temper?
Flip a coin. He goes off like a firecracker but then he’s done. I let it fester until I blow up and then hold a grudge an hour. Ok, sometimes a day.
Wakes up first?
Him. He’s an early bird and I’m a night owl.
Bigger family?
Me. But only because I’ve got extra parents.
Said I love you first?
I honestly can’t remember. Probably him.
The hoarder?
Me.
Better driver?
He’ll say he is and I’ll say I am. He’s more fast and decisive. I’m more careful.
More Siblings?
HIm.
Better cook?
Him.
More talkative?
HIM. Thank God. He does all the talking for us.
Shops more?
Definitely me. Amazon and I have a close, personal relationship. God bless Prime shipping.
Best dancer?
Him.
Pet lover?
Both of us. He’s happy with his dog, but I want a barn full of rescue animals.
Who’s taller?
He used to be 5’7″ and I used to be 5’5″ but I think we’ve both shrunk in our old age. ?
 
I love you, Tom. You mean everything to me. You’re my person, my rock, my home, my ollyollyoxenfree and you will be forevermore.
