    Oh,,,my....gosh.....my mother is already driving me insane. She does this every summer...it's like I'm her beckon call girl. She just called, first day,off, so I slept in a bit, and am enjoying my coffe (sans beaver butt) surfing the net, DH working, it's all nice and cozy quiet.....I pick up the phone, she never says hi just starts the diarrhea mouth about NOTHING!! Ugh!. It sounds very silly....but my whole relaxed mood has just been shattered. I JUST wanted to be left ALONE for a few minutes!! ( this is the reason I couldn't have handled children of my own!)

    Not only that, I don't know what she is doing to Rainn.....I asked her a few days ago if she would help put the skin lotion and spray on in the morning. She was gracious enough to do so...although not comfortable. I go to do Rainn yesterday, and instead of standing quietly allowing me to apply the salve, she turns back and forth on the lead. ( we don't have cross ties, and nor DID we need them). So...my mother has allowed her do get away with something. This horse is the most mild mannered thing.....if my mother is afraid of Rainn, she has no business being around horses!

    Errrrr, I think she is just currently on my short list right now.....generally she and I are very close, but she also drives me insane the most!

    Enough complaining, I need to start packing aNd head to the barn.

    Thanks for listening to my silliness!

    The mom is probably just overly excited because you have some free time.

    Stan, I guess you read all about beavers and their vanilla anal glands?

    Hunter, I just love the de-barked things you have created! Gorgeous! And your video, shows you need to not only close the door but lock it. Never thought they would just come along and open it like nothing, .

    Nicker, glad your school year is over and you get some time to yourself. Even if you don't get to sleep in!

    Lori, sooooooooooo you have a doc too?? Or did I screw up with Ricks horse, gah! I cannot keep things strait!!! Good luck with getting him in the trailer. I am sure you will do it and be hauling in no time!

    And Stan.......................... Helloooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

    Gosh, that was tough. I need to not lay low any more, too hard to catch up.

    Nicker, there's something strange about phones, when they ring we feel compelled to immediately stop what we are doing to answer them. In the past I even ran out of the shower to get the phone. Until I wondered why the heck I do that.

    Let the call go to voicemail, and call back when you are ready. Especially if it's your Mom and she's going to get you worked up.

    Melinda the office talked to me on Tuesday, said he'd had a bad visit with his parents on Friday and they had told him he is staying in foster care, as they are not taking him back. I was asked to take him back, and said I would consider it, but they needed to convince Brad and he was on his way into the office.

    They met again with Brad and I, and he said no way. He doesn't want to put himself in that position, as if something happened, we'd both loose our jobs as he works for a school district.
    He said that if a kid is willing to come at me with fists after only being here a few weeks, and over nothing. That if he did that again, Brad would put him through a wall.
    He said he's just not comfortable living with someone and wondering when they will cost us both our jobs, and then our mortgage etc.

    He also said that out of the 30 kids we've had, he just doesn't like this one at all. He felt terrible saying that about a 14 year old kid, but the office understood and said they are just like oil and water, and it's ok.

    So the pressure to take him back ended, and they excused us from having to go back to foster parent group, so that we could have dinner together. :)

    Alex, very happy to hear it is all resolved. Seems you do not have to save them all. You two are going above and beyond as it is! Glad you got to have dinner together, , and thanks for the update.

    However it reminds me of a habit some New Zealanders have when drinking a cup of tea made with milk. They dunk ginger nuts in it. There you go work with that one.

    Thanks Melinda. I was willing to give him another try, as I find it very hard to give up on a kid. But Brad was so against it, and I am not willing to force him. Brad has to come first.

    Stan, the Brits drink their tea with milk too. I must have about 3 cups a day. But it's stronger tea than American's have, if you were to put milk in what they call tea, there'd be nothing left as there's little taste without it.
