Is Wicked Witch is under there?

So craigslist has an array of things for those who are looking, and I was so blessed to find a Free Shed! I thought how wonderful, I could put my rabbits in there instead of the garage. I contacted the woman, and went over to look at it with my husband in tow. Didn't look bad, hand built, didn't look heavy ....we'll take it.
So the next day we rented a trailer from a reputable rental company, got a couple of people my husband knew, and headed over there. We had the time of our life getting this thing on the trailer. First we couldn't even get into the back yard, we had to unhook the trailer and 4 of us pulled it through the gate. Then we all heave hoed it onto the trailer, and pulled every muscle out of our back imaginable.
Well apparently it was taking to long so my husbands friends ditched us, so we were left with me, my husband, the owner who is disabled, and her son, who had a cracked rib. YEAH! Haha.
We managed to tip it on its roof, to fit it onto the trailer so it wouldn't fly away. We had no tail lights, and it was now 6:30 and dark, so the lady had to follow us home.
I have never been so tired in my LIFE, I went to bed at 9:30, I haven't' done that since I was in high school. JK.
I parked it in the back yard so my nosy neighbor wouldn't see a shed in a trailer in my driveway.
My husband and i got up early the next morning to unload this massive (way bigger than it looked on the ground) shed.
The kids helped us heave it up, and guess broke. HAHAHa, So now I have this huge shed, on it's side and I'm looking for the feet of the wicked witch of the east under it. Now what do we do?

Baby Update

Unfortunately we lost one of the would have to be my favorite one of course. It crawled out of the nesting box and froze over night. I have to say it's amazing because I cried when we caught a mouse in a trap that didn't die right away and I sobbed like a baby because it was suffering, but I didn't cry about the rabbit. I guess I'm getting to the point where I realize it's just how life works.

Yes it might be gross, but I let my three year old pet the dead baby, because he was curious and wanted to hold the poor bunny. That all stopped when he gave it a bath, and washed him in my tub...ewww. Then the bunny had to go. LOL.

Also, to all those of you who are interested in raising rabbits or getting into any type of hobby, make sure you follow your gut. I had a lady interested in my blue baby, and I found out she raised holland lops as well. We got to talking and I asked if she would be interested in trading my rabbit for one of her baby rabbits. She said no because she had got burned before, but then she wanted to trade two of her rabbits for my doe and all the babies except one. Well it sounded good because she raises them for show, but I wasn't sure because my gut said NO!

Well long story short come to find out she wanted to trade me a female that just lost all her babies, and she changed her mind when she found out my rabbit has some really great colors in her line. So thank goodness for Janice the 4-H lady who said keep my doe if I like her colors, and I do so I'm keeping her.

I am expecting more babies from the Lionhead this week, and hopefully my Mini Rex, so stay tuned.
