  1. Must Rant Again

    Ok, MIL wakes me up at 4:30am because she can hear the coyotes yipping. And she swears they are in the side yard messing with the chickens. The coyotes have been yipping for the last 6 months that we lived in this house, so that is nothing new. They were across the road in the ravine around the neighbors cow barns.
    What makes this woman, who has to have the TV on so loud you can hear it all throughout the house, think that she can determine where the heck the coyotes are yipping from?!!!! ...

  2. Animal Rant

    Ok, next. LOL
    Well, we moved into the house. I have 3 cats, 2 dogs, a rabbit, and my chickens. The cats, dogs, and rabbit are all indoor animals.
    My MIL has 2 cats that she used to let roam outside when she lived in Missouri previously, but kept indoors only in Texas.
    Well, about 6 weeks after moving in, I started noticing an odor. I knew what it smelled like, but couldn't figure out who or where. Yes, I knew it was cat urine. My MIL started blaming it on Georgie, my 4 ...

    Hi, My name is Lisa. My husband is Pat. And my MIL is Nancy.
    My husband and I have been together for 9 years, but only married for 9 months. We recently bought a house on 3 acres in rural Missouri so I could breed and show my bantam Silkies (that's a type of chicken) without our neighbors complaining.
    We lived in Fort Worth, Texas where I could have 12 chickens according to city code. That didn't seem to matter to our neighbor though. He would call code compliance or animal control ...

  4. Is it me?

    Am I being too sensitive?

    That's a hard question to ask myself. I'm getting furious at the Mensch because he won't pick up his clothes or complains when he has to do dishes. But this is nothing new.

    I want to slap my youngest daughter, Lulu, who has always been difficult. She is getting cranky with me. I know she's worried about her sister and is caring for her, but I don't deserve her venom.

    Tonight, I called Birdy at about 9 p.m. She didn't ...

  5. Im trying to not be cranky

    But ... I’ve been cranky lately, and my mama tiger claws are tungsten steel and razor sharp.

    For once, I have a “good” Great Facilitator and Eel story. The moment I sent out the email to let everyone know, the Eel called, very concerned, and asked if there was anything she could do to help. Good wishes, prayers, etc. She and the GF are in warmer climes at this moment, so there’s not a lot she can do. I do appreciate the good wishes, as does Birdy. The only “sour” note was when ...
