As I am in beautiful, hot and sunny Myrtle Beach for the BlogPaws pet blogger conference, it’s easy to know exactly what I’m thankful for. Not only BlogPaws for this great opportunity, and my great friend Sheryl for accompanying me and doing the majority of the driving, but for my hubby – The Dadz – for being willing to “hold down the farm” and take care of the crew so I could come.
We drove through a lot of rain on our first day of travel but by the end of it we were in sunshine and it was much warmer. We left behind temperatures in the 40’s and rainy at home and that dreary weather lingered there until it finally broke on Tuesday. We even saw photos on Facebook from my sister showing snow on the ground! I’m pretty sure if I had seen that in person at home, it would have pushed me over the emotional edge I’ve been teetering on since finding out both my hubby and I will be losing our jobs at the end of the summer.
The Dadz had to put up with all that nasty weather while taking care of one cat, two dogs, and 12 growing chickens. It’s a lot, I know, because when I’m home I do a lot of that care since he works more hours than I do (luckily he was able to take a couple extra days off while I’m gone).
I took some photos before I left of the things he’ll be handling while I’m vacationing and “conferencing”.
Samantha’s job as Mother Hen is now over, so she can go back to hanging out in her sunny window.
That’s because the Dadz sent me this photo this week, and the chicks have moved out to their coop! I’m thankful for that too, it will make life easier when I get home.
