    well after a gooood nites sleep i'm ready to start again. last time I went to the dr's I told her about the back spasms I have when I try to walk far or even stand to long so she gave me some muscle relaxers and last night was the first time I took one. I can tell you that it knocked my socks off. took it about 9:30 and by 10 I was sliding out of my chair I was so limp. had been trying to text dstr#4 and couldn't focus my eyes or catch the letter keys on my phone. went to bed and didn't get up till almost 9 this morning. note to self, next time take half a pill, if there is a next time. i'm just not much of a pill taker.
    and @Baymule I plan on taking my camera to sl's today and taking you some pictures of the ducks for color reference. how is dh's shoulder doing. i'm told that the shoulder is one of the most painful surgeries you can have.
    @Devonviolet just remember falina's heart is thru her stomach. she knows that her world has turned upside down and she is freaked out about it. and they like all kinds of treats. I've given them everything from animal cookies to fruit and veggies. greed is your friend. and don't work dh to hard, don't want to wear him out.

    Know just what you mean about the muscle relaxers. A couple years back I took one and thinking it wouldn't be that bad, I came to work. Big Mistake! I couldn't focus on my computer, I darn sure couldn't drive. Good thing I have a great boss - I told her I'm taking the rest of the day off - but I can't go home until I sleep this pill off. Literally slept in my office for about 4 hours before I could function well enough to get home...Geeze!

    Half a pill for me too from now on...and like you...I don't take them very often.

    Yay for duck pictures! LOL DH's shoulder isn't hurting like it was. It is still painful, but not the horrible pain he had to start with. Yesterday I was on the tractor all day and he had to watch. When he couldn't stand it any more, he'd come outside to tell me in minute detail what and how to do. I laughed at him, which made it worse. I put the tractor on High Speed, running from a mulch pile to the garden, which intensified every bump. I shook myself plumb to exhaustion and self medicated last night with boxed wine. Not a muscle relaxer, but it got the job done! :lol:

    Wine does a body good! It's my first "go to" for muscle relaxation and sleep enhancement, lol. I find that regular use gives me quite a good result!

    I'm not the one working him too hard. He does that on his own! I sometimes have to just about drag him inside to rest.

    This morning he said he was hurting after yesterday. So, I said we should take it easy and work on some other projects - like building a milking stand.*** :celebrate So, he went in and took a nap. 2 hours later, he woke up and sat in his chair, holding his cat. After about 20 minutes of that, he told the cat he had to get down, because he couldn't sit around, doing nothing.

    He then went out to the feed shed to move things around, so we can free up a metal (30 gallon) trash can, to put the 100 pounds of Goat Ration, that we ordered, which came in today.

    *** Speaking of building a milk stand, I got an amazing deal on an expanded metal platform, for the milking stand. Last week, we went to a local welder to see if they had a piece of expanded metal. It turned out, when we were looking in their scrap pile, I found a 2x3' framed & painted, expanded metal platform. It gets even better! The guy sold it to me for 20 buck$!!! :weee

    We use an Inversion Table on a regular basis and it does wonders to shoo away back pain.

    @Devonviolet you got a deal on that platform! you'll love that it doesn't get slick, if they would happen to poo on there (of course my girls don't do things that uncouth) the berries will fall right thru. good on you. I hope falina is settling in and calming down for you. I am sorry that she is acting like that.
    took some fresh goats milk over to sl's yesterday for her doe with the tummy issue and took some pictures of her ducks for Baymule while I was there. I have decided duck math is like chicken math or goat math or any other kind of math and I plan to blame this math problem on @Baymule! I came home with 2 new drakes and 3 new hens. yup, just what I needed more ducks. got a mostly coal black drake and 3 black hens and a chocolate barred drake for my chocolate girls. Sl asked me If I would like some duck eggs too. well of course I would, the price was right, free! she had just delivered 700, yup you saw correctly, 700 eggs to the Asian market in fort smith and still had plenty so she packed me up a box with over 8 dozen fresh eggs in it. I was thrilled, shared with dstrs#1 &5 and jb, the gal who let me borrow her computer and I still have 4 dozen left. and for those of you who have never eaten fresh duck eggs all I can say is yumm-o. sorry the pictures are so lousy but they refused to stay still.
