I had to switch antibiotics for my sinus infection because I couldn’t swallow the Augmentin. I kept cutting it into four pieces and it was making me really sick at my stomach and making me poo way too much. I would start getting sick about 15 minutes after taking it every time. Yuck. They gave me a Z-Pack instead, but by the time they sent in the prescription and I picked it up, it took a day in between before I got to start taking it. Apparently that day without antibiotics was enough for the infection to come back.
I feel like throwing a tantrum on the floor. I hate feeling miserable. I have laundry, dishes, and toys piling up around me plus people and animals that need to be cared for. I don’t have time to feel sick right now. I just don’t. I have to force my body to keep moving, and that just sucks. I haven’t hardly sat down all day long.
It’s kind of funny. Before I became a parent I would be a tiny bit sick and then lay in bed for hours thinking I was totally unable to function. Now…no such luck.
This afternoon it was 45 degrees and sunny outside so I took the girls out to play. I had to feed the chickens, wash out and refill their waterers, then spray out and refill the duck pool.

Ginny, a bantam Old English Game hen.
Ada’s two year molars are hurting her a lot. :(
Benny in front and June in back.
The girls are holding Silver, who is an Appenzeller Spitzhauben hen. They are Swedish chickens and super friendly.
Refilling the duck pool as evening hits.
Yay, fresh water!
That’s Benny in the pool.
Male Pekin ducks have a curly drake feather on their tails, see it?
They also quack differently–male ducks quack quietly like they are saying, “mwack mwack mwack” and female ducks honk “QUACK” loudly.
I love pet ducks. I highly recommend them! June’s eggs make baked goods extra fluffy and delicious.
This is Dumbledore the Silkie rooster. He’s pretty much the most awesome chicken ever.
Tame and fluffy. Excuse the edge of the coop door on the left. The blue things you see on the sides of his head are his blue earlobes!
