The Mystery Of The White Egg - solved

For the past couple of months we have been getting white eggs.

We have about 8 hens in one coop. The only hens in that coop that lay white eggs are Polish, a.k.a. Top-Hatters.

One of our Top-Hatters, Simone, was curious and squeezed through an open hole in the poultry netting, into the other side that - at the time - held one Araucana hen and five Black Sex-link hens. All the Black Sex-links, including the Araucana, were pecking at Simone and left a big bloody spot on the back of her head, leaving no feathers.

So Monday we put her in the side that doesn't hold any hens at the moment so she can heal. Tuesday we went to go check on Simone's food, water and eggs. It appears that she is one of the hens laying the white eggs. We have two others Top-Hatters, and Mom thinks one more may be helping lay the white eggs.

My life of being feminine

As you have read in the past on my blog, I am trying my best to become feminine. I am looking at every store for long skirts I can wear around the house and about. So far I am not having any luck. But I do have one long skirt that I only wore once at "Southern Blessings'" house one weekend. So right now I am wearing jeans that are not tight, shorts that go past my fingertips (got this idea from the public school's dress code) or Bermuda shorts, and shirts that are not low-cut nor tight around my chest.

In the near future when Mom learns how to sew I hope that she will sew me some long skirts, dressers, or jumpers. But in the meantime I am keeping an eye out for any long skirts that pop up at any store that I can afford. I am hoping to tell the girls in my youth group and the young ladies in the congregation what I am doing and maybe encourage them to start dressing feminine, and maybe share the "Feelin' Feminine" site.

The past week in review

Earlier this week I got grounded from my laptop again. A while back Mom and Dad got me a laptop since I have been helping around the house and really pitching in to make sure the household and family is running well. But ever since I got the laptop it has been first on my list of importance every day.

Yesterday Mom brought back a word that I have not thought of in a while: priorities. I thought about the word a lot yesterday. I also remembered that last year for school in Bible, we went over our priorities. Mom gave me and JJ a sheet of loose-leaf paper. On one side she made us write down everyone's name that is in our household. Then we had to write down what it appeared, based on the time they spent on something, that their priorities were. Then we put a star near what we do almost every day. For me, it was stuff dealing with the computer. Then we flipped the sheet over and we wrote what our REAL priorities should be.

Here is our priorities that we should follow:

Relationship to the Lord




Training to be an adult


Other than that I have been deep in thinking about college. I kept on going back and forth on whether or not I should go to college. When I younger I wanted to be a secretary. Because I am organized, I am good at office work, and I make good coffee, lol. Then either it was Monday or Tuesday that I made up my mind about college. I do want to go. There is a community college that is near both my home and my Dad's work. Which is why right now I really need to start buckling down on my school and start contributing to a savings jar for college. Ever since I have made up my mind about college, I have been asking my Mom questions about college like, "What classes am I going to have to take to get into college?" "Do I have to pay to go to college, and how much?" "What classes am I going to be taking in college to get the degree I want?" Mom was great at answering these questions because, early in her life, she worked on getting the same degree I am wanting and she went to the same community college. I know when I go to college that means I will have a lot of school and homework to do, still have my chores, study for tests and probably not have enough time to spend with my family. But I hope it will be worth it.

On Wednesday my Mom took our oldest dog to the vet. And she had to make the toughest decision anyone would have to make. She had to put our dog down. The vets gave her this decision because they said that Baby's, my dog, kidneys were failing. She was also suffering with arthritis and blindness. When my parents came back through the front door Baby was not on the leash. I was about to ask what happened, then I saw my Mom's face. It was red with tears coming out of her eyes. My brothers and I knew where this was going. Adam ,5, grabbed his favorite blanket and curled up in Dad's lap while JJ and I went into our rooms and plopped on our beds and soaked our pillows wet with tears. Baby knows that we loved her and cared for her. Now she is feeling better in Heaven.

We are now about to leave for Nancy's house. Then at about 11 p.m. we will be on our way to Florida! I just wanted to let everyone know that I probably won't havetime to do many posts while I am in Florida. But when I get back I will do a post of some pics from Disney.
