Hi guys, sorry have not been around much last week, hubby flew home, and we have been madly trying to get our new house ready (building a new one on the farm), plus its been so dam hot in the hight 30's and it going to be hotter on the weekend.

Had the results in for Beau, and the good news is his liver and kidneys are ok, but his white blood cell count is a bit high, his salt is high, so now we are doing a urine analysis, so have to sit there and try and catch his pee, think I may take a beer into the stables and just sit there with him :) We have also put him on an extra high fat content oil and added some extra fat to his diet. This last test will at least tell me if he has anything going on inside. He seems to be coping with his one eye, and even trotted with me back to his paddock, so seems happy in himself which is all I want.

Today, I have two of my home bred racehorses going for their first trials today, thank goodness they are not both in the same race - to a tad excited to see how they go.

Wow Corgi! When you blow a brand new tire, you don't mess around, do you?
Hope they replace it free.

That was a wild ride!

Luckily there were no other cars around me and I was able to regain control and pull over. I can change a tire but not when my hands are shaking from the fright and the 20 degree weather. I called hubby and he was 45 minutes away but before he could get there, a state trooper pulled up behind me and changed my tire for me! I never thought I would be happy to see flashing blue lights.

I only had one of these small donut type spares and the nearest tire place did not have my tire in stock so I had to leave my car at work. (I live too far away from work to drive on one of the temporary tires)

So hubby had to come pick me up at work and I have a friend that is going to take me to work in the morning. My new tire should be in by lunch tomorrow.

Today is Isabella's "birthday". I got her exactly one year ago today. I don't know her real birthday so I was going to make Feb. 4th her birthday. Inhad planned to drive to the farm to see her after work but couldn't since I couldn't drive my car. We will just have to have a belated birthday party later this week.

Oh, and yes....my tire is getting replaced for free.
I pray that you are ok and you are safe

Argh. Re-read and this time it soaked in my tired brain.
Yes, they are replacing it or free. Yay!

Corgi that is a horrible photo. Glad you are ok.



I have only been married to Brad for two years, all your stories of marriage for a million years, make me feel bad. But I shouldn't, he's mine now, and I wouldn't change him for the world. We've been together about 8 years, so we are getting there.

We foster teenage kids, it's not his thing, he does it because it's my thing.

I have a $500 a month horse (boarded) and when we choose barns, he wants the best one. It's not his thing, he actually dislikes horses as they are dangerous, but it's my thing.

I really couldn't ask for a more supportive husband, he's the best thing that ever happened to me. I really love his dumb ass. World, meet Brad, he's really something else.

We really do. He works second shift, so he is gone 1.30pm til midnight. I had a problem tonight with a foster kid who disrespected me, I had to stop Brad from waking him up because the kid made it right, and did what he needed to do. But Brad can't get over the disrespecting me part.

He really is the best thing ever.

Taking on teenagers or foster kids, not me I'd rather deal to the crims. My hat is off to you both. But then again is not owning a horse like having a teenagers around again, always testing the boundries

I can't usually post a pic of the kids, but we got special written permission from the parents as the kids were in our wedding, so I can share this. If not, heck no one could take photos at the wedding, it's so silly.

Kid with his head on my shoulder has proved to be the best kid ever.

Darn it, no pic uploaded. Here it is, and welcome to our family. The kids have come and gone, but it's about the same.
