Glad to read from you Corgi. I have not taken your family off the prayer list so there is still a steady feed for y'all.

I hope it works out soon for all of you.

I have a bit of land I call it (brokenwheel ranch) It is huge all of 5 acres. The farm that goes around us is where we do most of our riding, but back to the ranch. That $200 a month could be a sizable chunk on a mortage payment if required. I understand that land and houses are at a low price at this time with the state of the ecomony. If in the right position could be a good time to buy.
I would LOVE nothing more than to buy my wn But right now I have other prioritys needing my attention .. and also would have to finish redoing my home to ready to sell it. I can not have 2 places

Yesterday it was funny because it's so pathetic, today it's not funny at all. Every bump in the road is pure pain, walking is pain, sitting is pain.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

My Dad is still at UVA hospital, but was moved out of ICU. His body seems to be healing but he has severe delirium and doesn't know what year it is or where he is. This is very frustrating because he was working full time as a security guard up until the day of his surgery.

My mom has been staying with me for the past week and that is never a good thing. She hates being here and wants to be in her own house, but she is really not able to be by herself for long periods of time and my aunt, who was staying with her needed to go home to MD for a little while so Mom had to come here. She is going back home today and that will give us both a little break.

I am still driving the 1.5 hours to UVA almost every day. It is taking a physical, emotional, amd financial toll. I have no idea how long Dad is going to be there or where he will go when he is released. I am thinking he will need some type of rehab hospital at the best and a nursing home at the worst. And deciding where that should be is causing me a lot of stress. Mom has made it very clear she can not live with me...and I totally agree. We would kill each other. So, bringing Dad to a facility close to me isn't really an option but finding a place for him in their hometown causes a problem too because I will need to make arrangements for someone to look after Mom at home as well. And let's not even talk about the fact that they have no money now that Dad isn't working. They get Social Security benefits and that is it...that doesn't even cover their monthly expenses which is why Dad was working full time at the age of 78.

Too much to think about.

Sorry...just had to vent.

I did find time to have Isabella's teeth floated and had the farrier come out and do her feet. She was 2 weeks overdo for her feet. I am getting ready to go to the hospital to visit Dad and hand Mom off to my aunt and I hope to get some riding in this afternoon. It has been way too long!

Please know I have been reading everyone's posts and you all have been providing a much needed distraction!
Hun my continued Prayers for you and your family your Father gets Extra prayers .. If I were closer I would cook you all some food to reheat that would take some of your stress away

Thanks Critter. I enjoyed the first part of the walk about, but after awhile my grandson started getting a little heavy on the shoulders..lol

I need to figure out the cheapest most efficient way to replace that section of fence where you see it starts with T bar then has nothing from there to the tree line. I really do not want to spend $350 on fencing and posts knowing the property is going to be sold and I may not be able to use it any longer.

Well if your horses respect hot wire that is a great cheap option and you can Cap the posts and get the wire pretty cheap

A couple have had experience with hot wire, but not sure about the others. I may have to give it a whirl and see as I can always use it on my property if it doesn't work over there.

Thanks
