I’m back. Been busy. Goatlings are to blame.

We have had 13 kids born here at Castle Argghhh Farm since December 21. Eight of those kids are bottle babies, living in the house, wearing diapers. It has been a bit crazy.

I’m going to start moving them to a pen in the garage (which is heated) today, after I feed them and remove diapers and make sure they are cleaned up well.  (Diapers can make their little tails get a kind of poopy.  Yuck.)

To make things even more interesting, the washing machine broke over a week ago and flooded the laundry room.  We are having trouble getting an appliance repairman willing to come out here when there is all of about 1 inch of snow on the ground.  I got a promise that they will show up tomorrow.  We’ll see – there is 1/2 inch of snow forecast overnight, and I’m betting they will chicken out.

Just when did adults in our country become so pussified? Seriously, driving in the snow is no big deal, or at least it should not be!  We have not had a blizzard or 2 feet of snow.  We have had a couple of 1 to 2 inch snows, the roads have been cleared, and yet, the repair service is all scared about coming to fix something.  Phooey.
