Holy Goat Turds, Batman!

I have been very, very bad about writing here.  Oh, my!  It’s a bit embarrassing.  I still have many wonderful colored angora goats here at Castle Argghhh! Farm, but because I have a stupid part-time job, much of my energy has dwindled, and I have not worked with my fibers for ages.

This must change.

I have a bunch of goatlings that are for sale, and I also have a bunch who need to be sheared.  We had an awful winter/spring – snow on 3 weekends in April – and that put me far behind in my chores.  Now, it is warm enough, but I’m being scheduled for more hours, for this time of the year is huge for Home Depot – people have been so anxious about planting their gardens, and we have been a full two to three weeks behind, weather-wise, so now the store is jam packed.

Naturally, we have hard -to-please customers, and they take a lot out of someone who works at the Service Desk – at least someone like me. It’s stressful when people are unkind to me or my coworkers, and it’s even more stressful if some of my coworkers are unkind to each other.

Sigh.

Retail has always been difficult.

Happily, we are paid very well for retail, especially for a part-time job.
I would love, though, to be able to make enough money with the goats and fiber stuff that I could once again stop working and stay at home with my critters.  I need to work harder at selling my herd’s mohair and things made from it than I have.

Anyway, I will really, really, really try to be back – for real, this time.

  1. I look forward to reading the ongoing goat adventures…even if they are intermittent.
