not particularly bad in any way, just frustrating.
the water lines to the shop and the barn are frozen solid. i was trying to get out of here to go pick up some straw and a stall mat for brads new house...and i swear if one more person called my name as i was trying to leave, i was going to scream...it wasn't just the volunteers..it was the phone, it was the nice folks who found a stray dog running down the road and wanted to stick it here.
when i finally got into the van..i realized there was still feed in the back from the last run that i did..i pulled around to the shop to unload it and then found that one of the freezers that had a couple of donated feed bags in it...was now full of bugs..which means i now have to throw all of that feed out. note to self...no more donations of unwanted barn feed. and i also found in while unloading the new stuff that the feed store had loaded up cob instead of dairy tex. so back to the feed store to return and exchange before i could load up the van again.
i pretty much only got a half hour break between animal and people things before it was time to haul my reluctant ass out for barn bedtime. ellie and the goats were totally uncooperative and dicked around until i really wanted to just grab something and beat them! which i did not...i did stay calm...i just threatened to give their suppers away to someone else but i really wanted to whack them instead!
i know folks think i am a pain in the ass about wanting my couple of hours in the afternoon just to chill and relax when i am home on the weekends..but i need that time to put the first part of the day behind me before i move on to the second part of the day.
the good news is...ko and vern are cooking dinner for laura tonight and i am invited. and since i have again been eating crap for weeks..what i probably need is a really healthy meal! so i better get somewhat cleaned up and head on over to finally have some nothing to do with saints time...it will feel good tonight!
