    Please do start it again and look in our direction when you chant. We need the rain. If you get a little snow well that's the price you pay for doing the wrong chant.

    We don't have bm's or B O, with no water to spare we all smell the same. not nice

    Hi country woman! Things are good here! I just stared my 5 day Easter break!!! Yeehaaaa! I so needed a few days to recup! I do have a few things planned, and hope to spend a few of those days with " my girls". 😀

    I don't know if anyone is following my little drama with my young horse, but I think we may be finding a home for her and I've had some nice help in starting the search process of a new horse.


    Gosh, the thing about horse people....they are there for you...at least the 'true' horse people I know. I feel vey fortunate to have these wonderful people looking out for my well being. 😃


    Stan, I'm wondering if the "two hour delay dance" I do for school would help your rain situation???!!??? When we want a two hour delay for our school day (in relation to bad weather) we do a little dance.....maybe we can do it for you! Lol. It hasn't helped us out this year.....but maybe for you....it might ! 💧💦

    Well, things are not good for my Dad right now. I don't want to bring this thread down but I am trying to pass time until the doc lets us know the latest.

    His surgery lasted 8 hours and had some serious complications. They sent us home after they got him settled into ICU. We were home for about 2 hours when they called and I had to give verbal consent to take him back to the OR to find out why he was bleeding internally.

    This sucks. Been awake for almost 24 hours and haven't eaten in about 12 hours. Feel like I am going to throw up. They took him into surgery for the 2nd time about 1.5 hours ago and now we are waiting for an update.

    Think I wil go read some of the horsey threads to take my mind off of things. And if anyone has any good strategies for coping with stress when things are completely out of your control, please send them my way!

    Corgi, so sorry to hear that things are tough for your Dad. Keeping you all in my prayers and I hope they find the problem quickly. I don't have good stress management tactics....I pray, put things in God's hands, and you should try to conserve your emotional energy because you'll need it for your mom. Even if things turn out with a good report when he gets out of surgery, she'll be drained and exhausted and you may have to deal with the nurses and doctors on her behalf. Hang in there, sister. We are thinking of you....

    Best way I know of to combat stress is to let it out. Corgi we all feel for you and what you and yours are now facing. When the stress builds excuse yourself and go outside and let it out. Have a good cry, a rant and rave. You will feel better for it and more able to cope.
    Good luck and best wishes to your father.

    Hi Corgi;

    I am so sorry about your Dad. What you are going through is so very hard. My father died last year. He was very ill for many many years.

    The only advice I can offer for dealing with the stress is to accept that really it is out of your control. All you can do is be there for support, but you can't change anything. It sucks to say the least and for lack of a better word.

    Try to be there for your family as they probably need you to be strong right now. Stay as optomistic as you can. It really helps everything.

    I am so sorry you are going through this.

    I hope your Dad improves.
