Being Sick, Business Plans & Chicken Surgery

How’s that for a mess of a title?  Sadly, the first two are dominating my day.  Here’s a copy of my FB post from this morning:

My little school only has one student, but I managed to get sick from him. I knew there was a good reason not to touch that biology book!

Mr. Fix-It noticed last night that one of the chickens was limping. Farm Boy says, yah, it has been limping for a while, i figured it would get better. Cowgirl goes out this morning and gets the chicken. She has the string from a feed bag embedded in her ties and around her foot.


I helped Cowgirl set up a little surgery for the chicken and she started snipping the string off the chicken’s foot. And all of a sudden, my student’s sickness washes over me and I’m struggling to stay upright and not pass out or puke during chicken surgery! I ended up on the bathroom floor and Cowgirl freed the chicken. 
It wasn’t even a gross surgery!

Fortunately, I don’t have the flu, just a bad cold that has settled in my chest and sinuses – where all colds seem to settle to cause lots of misery.
Cowgirl told me yesterday that I could only have the one day off from business.  Nearly fainting during surgery has garnered another day to recuperate.  Of course, I’m looking for a business bank, racking my brain for questions to ask the accountant, and researching what we need to file with the state to be a legit business.  Cowgirl has been business planning like a boss with her two days off from Quarter Horse Congress.  I am so proud of how she is running with this.  She can’t put it down!
Me?  I am over being sick (I’m on day 2) and ready to be able to function without bricks on my chest.  Vick’s, Gypsy Cold Care tea and orange juice.  What a combination.
And That’s What’s Happening on the Hobby Farm!
