Lack of Communication

After 22 years of wedded bliss
(it was our anniversary last week)
you'd think that we'd be able to finish each other's sentences.
And if my brain worked like a normal person's that would probably be true.

But my brain is not that of a normal person. It's mine.
It doesn't stop, even for one millisecond.
While I sleep I'm still thinking of things. 
It never stops.

Where was I going with this....

Oh yes!

Twenty two years!
You'd think that when I tell him just half of the story, he'd know what I meant.
Honestly, I shouldn't have to explain everything....right?

That's how I ended up with 45 chicks.

Dave loves auctions. Me, not so much.
I'm an over-thinker.
 When you're in an auction you can't think things through. You have to act instead of think it to death.

So we went to the cattle sale a few months ago.
Nothing was catching my eye. (well except the mini donkey, it stayed there.)
So then Dave is like, " Look at all these chicks. Do you want some?"

Me-No, I don't need chicks. We just hatched out a bunch. We don't need any.....
Him-Are you sure?
Me-Yes I'm sure.
Him-Are you sure, did you see the boxes of white chicks over there?
Me-Yes, I saw them, but we don't need anymore chicks
Him-Okaaaayyy. Well if you see something, just write the tag number on this paper.

So I wandered around and then wandered to the chicks again.
Stupid me.
Three boxes caught my eye. 
Stupid me. 
The white chicks.
Stupid me.
So I wrote down the numbers and gave them to Dave.
Since I have no patience and the brain for the auction itself, I went to visit the donkey.

He was such a cute donkey and there was a mini horse also.

I got back to Dave after it was done and he proudly announced that he got all 

Holy catfish Batman!

I only wanted one box.
Didn't you realize that? 
I only wrote the three numbers in case you didn't get the first box, bid on the second. 
If you don't get the second box bid on the third.

But don't get all three!!!

And that's how I ended up with this

45 chicks.

They're mostly grown now.  But now I have to figure out who's pullet and who's rooster.
AND find homes for them since I don't have room for all that.

But in my defense, we've been married for 22 years.  You'd think he would have known that I didn't want all three boxes. Am I right ladies?! 
Help me here!

Have a Blessed Day


  1. rofl rofl... well I can tell you we have been married 32 years LOL and if we had been in the same situation, we would have come home with all 3 boxes of chicks.. its a guy thing I am pretty sure... we have had 45 chickens one time not from that same situation lol but never the less 45... ummm we wont ever be doing that again. Hope you can rehome a few as yup that is a lot of chickens. :O) But congratulations on your 22 years! :O)

  2. Lisa, you made me so belly laugh. The workings of a female mind just doesn't fit into the logic of a male's world. It doesn't matter how you have been married. I'm sure you have realized by now male and female minds are just wired different. It was explained to me like this. A female brain is like a bowl of spaghetti all intertwined and thinking of multiple things at the same time. A male brain is like a waffle. A man can only be in one square at a time and work on one task at a time. Then he jumps into the next square. When spaghetti meets waffle .... well .... yeah. :-)

    Have a great 45 chicks day.

    1. And my mind is even worse than your regular female brain. I haven't been formally diagnosed with ADD, but I'm sure I am. So combine a regular female brain and an ADD brain together and you can get very annoying or funny situations...depending how you look at it. But I'm glad I made you laugh.

  3. Yes I totally got that you only wanted one box lol Men tho, no matter how long you've been married would just get all three if they could. Its just the way they are I think.
    Like when I send my Hubby to the store for a loaf of bread he comes home with 4. Whats up with that? Good luck with your chicks :)

    1. I know what you mean! I sent Dave to the store yesterday for crackers. Two specific kind. The store had neither. So he buys something that looks close to what I asked. But instead of buying one, just in case we don't like them, he buys TWO!

  4. Ha! But my DH would have done the exact same thing :)

    1. Well it's nice to see that it's not just me and my hubby with the lack of communication!


We love hearing from everyone! Please leave a comment even if it's just to say hello!
