To make matters worse, my neighbor helper is taking a week off this month, just before my inlaws AND great-inlaws arrive for a visit. We have three family birthdays to celebrate in September, meaning gifts and homemade cake, at a minimum. The meat birds are going to ice camp, etc. AND for some reason, we now have a newly hatched chick (singular...no friends) chirping in my ear at the moment for my 5 yr-old to scratch her (fingers crossed that it's not a damn rooster) head. Oh...and my newly 2 yr-old daughter needs weaning and shots. Insert curse words and beer here!! Come on winter, I really can't wait to sit down!
