yahoo! I got a job

After 2.5 months of being unemployed, draining savings to move and pay for the new house I finally got a job! It is part time for the moment, and doesn't pay much, but it is positive cash flow. I am still babysitting almost every weekend, and looking for a second job to fill in the gaps. Despite everything I am just SO glad I didn't have to go to New Orleans to find work.

I had recently lost my half pygmy half fainting goat during birth in August and to tell you the truth it was hard to go into the building where all the goats were staying, but I'm so glad I did.

Today I got to bring home my first Nigerian Dwarf twins. Both are Males that have recently been wethered. Thanks to Dianea and her sons. From my first visit… Continue
