The HCG diet.

Have you wondered where I've been? Well I'm afraid if you want update you just have to read our family blog or our new HCG blog.

Since starting the diet I haven't had my normal energy and therefore have wanted to go to bed earlier. Also, school has been crazy for my love so she needs a couple hours about everyday for it. That leaves me a couple hours during whole week to do mine.

I am getting more confortable with the diet. (if you ask me around 11am you may get a different answer) I am also happy with the weight that has been going down. I feel better about myself with less weight and feel healthier.

Chickens have also been crazy. Been trying to teach them to roost in the coop. So far it has been on the tree, on the fence, on the coop, on the door, and anywhere except the coop. I did realize tonight that many of them cannot fly the high yet. I need to build them a ladder of some type. Also I need to build another roost for them.

Well I am tired so good night and hope to see you soon!

My birthday and other happenings...

First of all, thank you who all voted on my rooster problem. And for those of you who haven't voted yet, get your tush in gear and vote! :) Just to let you know we have found out there is a good chance our Golden Laced Polish is a hen and not a rooster, but we shall see.

Life Happenings...

Last week was a blast. Hiking, dinosaur foot print hunting, site seeing, horse back riding...all in one week. Actually all that was in two days.

We got our next shipment of chicks last friday. We had ordered 3 more silkies, 3 black Marans, 1 Production Red and then Eriks chicks which was 25 white Leghorns. The company sent us 4 silkies, 1 bantam cochin, 4 Marans, 2 Production Reds, and 27 Leghorns. We gave Erik his Leghorns, but also a Maran and silkie. I wanted my brother to have a little variety in his chickens. It was sad one of our silkies ended up getting weak and passed away today.

Our other chicken problem was our golden laced polish got prolapsed. Basicly it means, stuff that is supposed to be inside started sticking out side. We worked with her for 4 days and yesterday she seemed better. We ended up having a appointment at best friends who said that would look at her today and they said everything was looking better. So today she was finally able to rejoin the flock. I'm glad I don't have to play chicken doctor anymore.

More life...HCG diet. We started shooting up yesterday. The first 3 days of this diet it great! Bacon, sausage, cheese, hot dogs, cake, candies and far so good...I think I can handle the diet...I guess we will see Friday evening how I am doing. :)
