i had a hard time sleeping last night...every time something (or someone!) brushed my knee, it hurt and woke me up. when the alarm went off at 5 am..i thought shit man, i am bagged and my freaking knee hurts..i can take a sick day because my knee was injured by a god damn donkey kick. i got up and discovered the knee only hurt when something (or someone) touched it..it did not hurt at all to walk on it so i had to go to work. if amos had at least kicked me just a little bit harder, i could have had a bed day.
and i ended up working an hour late too....when duty calls and all that shit.
the spca kids camp was up here for a field trip today..nicole said they had a good time. another group is coming next week too. i think animal welfare camps are good for kids, they can learn some great things about animals and have fun at the same time. it is the best way to learn about anything.
barn bed time went well...ellie was a bit slow coming in but i could see she was pretty sore tonight. her pain meds are in her dinner with her apples so hopefully she will have a comfortable night.
laura is putting to bed for the next couple of evenings because i am on afternoon shifts...i hope they are good then too.
harold is doing a little bit better in the incontinent department...not a great deal better but a bit. he can go outside more frequently now because he and bibi can now walk past each other....that is always a good thing.
ryan "rescued" a baby rat today and put him in the feed room...he was drowning in a water bucket. since he was up and moving, i told him to put him back outside in one of the rat burrows leading under the feed shed...i do not wish the poor little guy ill and hope he stays away from the poison...but if we start actively saving rats around here and getting to know them personally... we are totally screwed.
he was a cute little bugger, sigh...such a terrible conflict in this.
