While drinking my tea early yesterday morning, when the house was still quiet and nearly everyone was still asleep (except for Rod who had already left for work), I realized two pretty important things:
1. It was the 14 year anniversary of the day Rod and I met.
2. There are now twelve living creatures in this house. That seems like a pretty big deal given that we started with just two. Fourteen years, two children, two dogs and, now, six chicks. It's been busy.
If only I had remembered the anniversary a couple days sooner, I might have insisted on eight chicks just to make it fourteen beings in fourteen years. But, I think we would all agree that twelve is pretty much enough....for now.
