I have some sort of disease. The symptoms include never knowing when enough is enough, being draw to doing something new when the old stuff works just fine, and getting stuck in the middle of a project I wish I hadn’t started…
Do any of you have that disease? Is there a cure?
My latest brainchild idea was to enlarge the chicken run. Keeping in mind, I’ve already enlarged it TWICE. But three time’s a charm, right?
This time, I just enlarged it a tiny bit. It’s only about 5 foot square (square-ish, as I’m not so good at stuff like staying square). I landed on that size simply because of the supplies I had on hand. I didn’t want to BUY anything to do it. At least I had THAT sanity working for me!
My rational, aside from the disease that I have (which I think there is no cure), is that the girls have been out for hours every day this summer. WAY more than I’ve ever let them out before. But, since winter in the Pacific NW is mostly a continual downpour, their recess time is going to shrink considerably. So, I figured, even a little bit more space is better than nothing.
But I forgot, momentarily, that I don’t know what I’m doing. And I forgot that I have to chip down through 8 inches of asphalt to dig post holes. And I forgot that I don’t have any wire cutters besides my tiny jewelry making ones. And I forgot how cross projects like this can make me.
But it’s done. THANK GOD!
And I think the girls like it. They hang out in that area a lot. Yay. Now, the promise to myself: NO MORE HAIR BRAINED IDEAS THAT INVOLVE POWER TOOLS…at least not for the rest of the year.
PS I also realized I forgot to announce the winner of the drawing on this blog. I tracked her down and let her know the good news, but I forgot to share it with the rest of you. So, congrats goes out to Mokihana of Boring, Oregon!
