Hitting the Road

I’m finally getting around to packing up for vacation (nothing like leaving it to the last minute, as always). Outer Banks, here I come!  I’m pretty excited, having never been there before.  The downside being that my favorite guy (don’t worry dear hubby, I am referring to YOU) won’t be joining us, as he is staying behind to take care of these lovely ladies for my mom instead.  (Ain’t he just a sweetheart!)

I will try to control my jealousy 🙂

Vacations are pretty hard to plan when you’ve got a farm in the mix.  Can’t really just turn on the tv softly and set up the automatic food and water dishes.  Something I will need to consider further with the arrival of the chickens this spring- who will I get to care for them when we want to go away? Hmmmm….

    I hope you love the Outer Banks! We go there often in the summer, but this time of year will probably be much nicer — tourist-free!
    Critters do complicate even the shortest trip. The nice thing about chickens will be that you can bribe a friend with the promise of free eggs every day you’re gone! 🙂 Just leave good notes — my parents had a friend housesit for them last summer, and even after several “training seminars,” my mom still got at least three phone calls a day from him, most of them chicken-related. A single sheet of instructions could probably have answered 90% of his questions.
    You don’t have to worry about that yet, though. Enjoy your vacation! 🙂
