Why the Radio Silence

Last week was a long and frustrating week for us all here at Casa Leipprandt - hence the lack of posting.

A combination of pregnancy hormones, a 14 month old's sudden penchant for crying and evening arrival times of 7:30 for B Daddy (8:45 on Friday night!) had me in tears by the end of each long day on Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday/Friday and Saturday.

On top of all that - no eggs from the girls. Seriously. Two weeks in to the Great Chicken Experiment and these moochers have not laid a single egg.

AND... to add insult to injury - on Saturday morning I was feeling extremely Betty Crockeresque (in spite of my fragile emotional state!) and decided to make blueberry pancakes for the men in the house. Upon searching the refrigerator I realized I had one measly Store Bought Egg left...and of course two were required for my recipe. If looks could kill we'd have had a nice roast chicken for dinner Saturday night.

So after several discussions on how to make our daily lives run more smoothly during this hectic time (B Daddy and I now have our very own chore charts!) I'm going into this week with a decidedly optimistic outlook.

If you don't hear from me for the rest of the week, send up a prayer or two. The chickens and I will be needing them. 


  1. From one hormonal woman to another - I can totally sympathize! If you need to vent, I'm here. Oh and thank you for your sweet note and gift - you are too kind! (And it sure is nice to know I'm not alone in all my pregnancy craziness...) Hang in there!

  2. I've thought about a chore chart for myself. It would help keep me organized I think. That, and a list titled "things you need to get out the door with two kids" :)

  3. Thinking about you Katie! Don't worry it will get better...the hormones I mean. Good luck this week and let me know if you need any good chicken recipes...hehehehe.

  4. Sounds like we may be in need of an AM iced coffee date? (we can do decaf!) Lets pick a morning when its either way the heck too hot or rainy and gather some sanity!
