hope everyone had/has a great thanksgiving
Carol · Oct. 10, 2010
i am hoping to have thanksgiving dinner with my family tomorrow but it depends on a couple of things...like...can i get off work an hour early (it depends on my workload) and can we eat quick so i can get home again before 5:45 because i have got to get the barn guys in before dark. if it all works out as i am hoping, it will be my typical family holiday thing..pop in, pop out and drive home faster than i usually drive!
it sucks to be a rescuer on family dinner nights.
barney is not well today...he is a bit congested and has stopped eating today. not eating for barney is huge. i started him on antibiotics and i am going to try to run some fluids thru him tonight but this is a very, very old little guy so it doesn't bode very well.
ziggy has decided that while i am putting together everyone's dinner, he should hang out in the kitchen with me..ooops i mean... the feed shed. he samples some apples and keeps me company. it is probably a bad habit to get started with him but i figured what the heck..he is terminal so he can help me if he likes...he behaves himself well while he hangs out with me.
lucky had an enquiry about adoption today..too bad it is too late for her to have a real home of her own now. carol has asked about adopting harold so when i get a chance to talk to her about him honestly we will see if it will be a good match. harold is a great dog..but he does have a few indiosyncrasies which carol might not know about yet.
the ladies did a great job on the house..there were 4 busy bees in here today....the place is absolutely spotless still tonight and that is a real treat. and it didn't stop there..the mp building, the barn areas too are all extra specially nice too!
i think we do have the best volunteers in the universe!
sigh..i should do up a load of my laundry but i just don't feel like it now..i will regret not doing it later in the week but i don't care..i would rather do nothing at all tonight and regret this decision later...everyone is settled and peaceful and quiet...the house looks and feels great everywhere and i want to relax and enjoy it cuz i am back to work tomorrow.
tonight i am thankful for a very comfortable home as so are the lucky saints animals!
