Chicken Intermission

Jan. 11th

So sorry it’s been a while since the last chickendiary.  Big doin’s at the B’games!  I stupidly let my teaching license expire, so the state of Alabama is requesting that I go back to school (after 25 years) to get six graduate hours in English to renew it.  Yikes!  My first day was yesterday and quite frankly it scared the chicken feed outta me!  I’m the second oldest scholar in the class (Thank you, nice 62-year-old lady who sits behind me!)  We have a list of eight books to read (including Moby Dick) and numerous other outside reading, papers, quizzes and such.  Yes, I’m whining.  Yes, I know lots of people go to school, work full-time, raise young children and keep the house running.  My hat is off to these brave, industrious souls, but I am not of that ilk.  I’M A VERY LAZY PERSON!  Some of you are NOT shocked.  Anyway, this scholarly endeavor will no doubt kick me in the butt-hocks (props to Forrest Gump).  I will not have the free time to devote to my beloved chickendiary, so I must say adieu for now.  As I write this, I should be reading some scintillating essays by Thoreau, Hawthorne and Emerson.  HELP ME!!!  In the meantime, the girls will continue to grow fat and happy, destroy my yard, provide hilarious entertainment, and make my breakfast. 

We will miss you.

If I should happen to have a stretch of free time, (spring break perhaps?)  I’ll get out there with my camera and document the latest on the ladies.  Until then, I thank you for your readership and wish you all the best of everything in 2012.  Farewell *sniff* for now.
