    And with that I have to disapear for a time, no, not that, its raining. SWMBO is due home soon and I have to get dinner on. She has been at work alllll day, and so she should. As an equal opportunity person I saw the opportunity of being kept in the style I have grown accustomed to and jumped at it. So its steak, beans, pasta, mushroom sauce. Last night I did a rost pork. Arn't I good.
    Tomorrow we do a swap and she gets to stay home. Arn't I good

    Cheers all

    I noticed we are closing in on 1000, not sure if that is posts, or pages. Not bad for a bunch of wrinklies. Not you AlexS, I did not mean you, Oh dear its going to hurt.

    I don't know what's next, well kinda. They told me I'd have the results of the scan in a few days, and the lab work too then.

    I asked what was meant by the counts 4 & 8, and the nurse smiled at me, and said, everyone is different. Sniff, sniff, I live with liars, the foster kids, and I smell a lie. Don't do that to me, I hate it.

    So then I shut up and heard the rest.

    So the counts are how likely my ovaries can hold an egg, I think a 15-20 is normal, so I am doomed.

    They said I would hear the results this week. Now I need to wait until my next period for a scan of my fallopian tubes. I will do that, but I know I am being lied to, and I hate that.

Have spent one and a half hours tonight walking her to have almost try 2 time. ARRRG so frustrating, think she picks up on that? I just dread it cus I know she will be whining at my bedroom door at 2 am UGH!

    Thanks everyone, in full disclosure, Brad is brilliant in support when he's at work, through email. Less so when he actually has to do it.

    Mid typing of my last message I went out and bought cigs, and then finished typing.

    Tjt, I am a foster parent of delinquent teen males 16-21. Brad said he had them tonight, and he did, just on a 5 min delay, the kids saw that and took advantage, and my pressure point just gained and gained. Brad is amazing, he really is. But he is so chill and copes with everything so well, that he doesn't react in the moment.

    So the kids eat everything, kid 3 went to get food an hour after we came home from eating out. I hear the microwave, and yelled, walked though and told him he just ate. Stop the microwave, you just ate a full meal. As I wasn't smoking then, this was massively annoying and Brad's job.

    10 mins later another kid went though. To clarify our bill was $140 without a tip, they all ate a good amount. I give Brad the GLARE, he doesn't react. Sh1t hits the fan. I can't do the kids and give up smoking. I just can't.

    Brad tells me he was dealing with them, which he was, but on a 10 min delay, and the kids smelled a weakness, so they reacted to it.

    I bought a pack of cigs and am lighting up my 3rd.

    Here's the thing with giving up, I'd give up in a second if I were pregnant, but I don't even think I can be. And the clinic needs me to be 3 months clean, and then test, I'd guess through labs. Well you know what, give me something to work with, tell me I can - or something first. Don't tell me that at this point you don't know, and I had one appoint, and expect me to give up. I tried, but you are expecting me to stop at the most stressful time of my life.

    I'd like to hear, that I can at least first then I will gladly give up.

    I have no advise. Some dogs just seem that way. In 2006, my old girl was getting old, and we had a 10 hour drive to move here. She wouldn't go, and cried to go all the way. So I kept stopping. It made the journey for my cats much longer as she never went.

    Now she's a PITA, she won't lower herself in snow, she won't go when the grass is wet. She's just a pain in the rear end.

    Tala doesn't go but once a day, maybe twice on a good day when its not wet out. She's annoying, but I would take every annoying minute with her, I think our time together is limited.

    She has cancer, and we spent a fortune on that, and we did radical pills for chemo, she was one of the first dogs to get it. It made her so sick, so we stopped, as we were doing it for us not her, and at $4k a month. She will live out her days being as picky as she is, and it's ok.

    Ok, so I rarely express my opinions on here or in "real" life, as I often don't feel I am thoroughly informed enough to give an intelligent response.....but I am today....

    First for those possibly offended on gender comments....as I read I never felt there was any sex bashing, just fun banter...and honestly...it's 2013 and not even sure if there really IS gender bias anymore in this day and age.....at least not in my small piece of the world.

    Next, TJ I've been reading you posts, and all the wonvpderful responses...we do have great people here, don't we? I guess what I hear you saying is that you are just plain old scared to hop back on...is that correct? Here is a thought....as the horse world can be VERY intimidating, especially starting out later in life, which I believe you are....instead of taking lessons right away what about going to a dude ranch type place, renting a horse for an hour or two or three and just RIDE for the PURE PLEASURE of riding!!!! Simply get back into the saddle, ride without worry ( those horses at rent-a-horse are usually bomb proof) and see if you get that little twing of excitement in the pit of your belly....GROW your confidence by just BEING in the saddle....no body there to 'critique' your seat (as would take place in a lesson) and RIDE, ride, ride, ride, ride.....do it a couple times...and THEN make the decision if you want to pursue this whole thing again!

    I've been there TJ, getting back in the saddle is VERY scary...but starting off with pure FUN may be the way to go!!

    NEwdad, yes, being the horse world can be very clickish and very OPINIONATED...but like everyone else said, talk to TONS of people, keep your mind open to what EVERYONE has to say, and then piece that information together to fit who YOU and your family are! Again, like I previously told TJ, I think sometimes we forget why we often got into horses....their beauty and the serenity that they bring to ur lives. Is so easy to get caught up in the Drama of barn politics, competing, buying end that we simply forget.....our horses!!

    That being said, I can't remember who it was that shows here...I can picture your icon, but can't remember your name....but I do recall you saying you don't have time to trail ride bc of all the practicing for your competitions. Food for thought, as when I competed, I too would be gone every weekend for an event....BUT, for the good of the horse ( I know my QH just loved a trek) after our time in the ring, which was often a good hour or so, I would take her out in the field or dirt roads and ride! She LOVED it, as she did the competition....but it seemed to make her relax, and definitely desensitized her to the environment. She was a SUPER horse. In addition, it was a time for me to unwind and center myself.

    Those are just my random thoughts....I'm at a good place currently, at least in my own horse world(don't know how long it will last ) and I've been going or have gone through many of these stressful, questionable situations in the horse world. I'm kinda liking the quietness of our one horse barn right now!! I am still searching for #2, but am enjoy being the herd leader of Rainn. She depends on me more now that she is alone, and follows me through the field.( I know it's only bc I have potential treats). But it's fun! I fear when we get another, that dynamic will change like when we had 'sassy pants'. THAT was NOT fun...she was so unpredictable I feared for my and rainn's safety while out in the field.....I digress.....

    To sum up....I hope everyone today takes the time to JUST BE with their horses.....take time to remember why you fell in love with horses to begin with....the whole majesty of it all!

    I for one am going for a ride, and I may also just take a bucket out into the field and simply sit.....the sun is bright and warm....a perfect day to do just that......BE!

    Have a happy day all!! ride strong!
