Believe it or not, I didn’t cry when they left. The lady, who is a hygienist at our dentist, her husband two children came to get them. The kids were petting and holding the chickens. They were scared of the man and lady but took right to the kids. They picked dandelions for them and everything seemed fine. They had a big cage and the chickens were loaded into the cage and put in the back of their pickup. I gave them all the food, treats, watering cans . . everything. They tried to pay me and I said “No . . thank you for giving them a good home!” They assured me over and over that the chickens would be well cared for. They heat their coop in the winter too so I was happy to hear that.
Nicole was here and they all knew her and she assured me they would give the chickens a great home. I guess that’s why I didn’t cry — I know they’re going to be fine. I had my camera with me but didn’t take pictures and I came inside the house before they drove away. I was too afraid to watch them leave but . . no tears! YAY!!
Now, if we can just get this house listed by Monday, everything will be much better. We hit a bit of a snag with the relocation company but I think we’re back on track now so hopefully things will move along and at least by Tuesday or Wednesday, our house will be on the market.
Thank you all for the encouragement, for the assurances that it’s ok to cry every now and then and for confirming that root beer floats do solve most problems. I already knew that but it’s so nice that others know it too! 🙂 And . . Chad went to the grocery store this morning and they had Homemade Vanilla ice cream and he brought home a half gallon so . . things are definitely looking up around here.
