the best laid plans of (wo)man and pigs....
Carol · Nov. 17, 2011
we are going to pass on that dryer jan found...too far away and too much hassle to go and get with all of the other stuff on everyone's plate...we are ok for now, thx to maggie. we will get ours fixed if we can and maybe look at the one diana knows about if it is closer to home and less time sensitive to pick up.
i am not in a great mood tonight, too much i am really worried about. i need to get wilbur and charlotte back here before the 25th because apparently charlotte was accidently bred by the new family's crypt orchid pig on nov 11th and we need to give her the anti-pregnancy injection within 2 weeks cuz i am NOT risking a litter of 10 or 12 or 15 piglets....send out 2, get back a dozen or more...not freaking happening...not in my world.
i so want to shoot myself....
anyway..we are going to need a permanent area for them... the rent-a-fence scenario doesn't work anymore now that winter has struck...the snow is falling big time out of my door tonight, winter has officially begun and the other barn guys need that whole barn.
so...i need to figure out how to cover transport costs, find the money to build a pig shed and fence it all in the blink of an eye (rent a fence may come in handy again!) apparently my thousand dollar overdraft is still available (i forgot to close that account when i paid it off last time...good thing!) so at least that is a start.
you know what? honestly? rescue is nothing except one freaking major hassle after another.
one of these days, i swear to god...i am going to be hassle-free.
(until then i will try to figure this newest wrinkle in rescue life out.)
