another barn fire alarm. thank goodness i found my missing phone yesterday before the fire dept. was called again. anyway...it shot me out of bed and up on my feet and running, pretty damn fast.
ADT better get out here and fix whatever the problem is because a fire alarm that cries wolf becomes a real problem for me...like we get charged big bucks if the fire dept. attends a false alarm..and...there will eventually be an automatic tendency to somewhat ignore a daily wolf calling barn fire alarm.
speaking of barns....mystic smells like one. she was laying on my pillows all fragrant like pepe le pew and that reminds me i better book her a spa appointment somewhere soon.
i spoke with angela last night...pig transport day is for this coming saturday. laura/ko are you guys available on short notice late afternoon/early evening if i am still working when charlotte and wills arrive? it will be good to get them home and settled again so we can put this whole woefully unsuccessful episode of farm pig re-homing behind us (and get charlotte the anti-pregnancy shot asap too!)
their new permanent area won't be ready by then...but since i have a workable and decent temporary housing plan in place..we can be set up and ready to go as soon as they actually arrive.
sigh..it is so time to quit dicking around with them reaching for fairy tales and just get them settled into the reality as permanent saints sanctuary animals so that all of us (the pigs included) can just move forward with our new pig saturated lives.
i do believe that one day soon...i will reluctantly be well on the road to rescued farm pig expertise...you can't have 3000 pounds of the buggers literally banging around, all with their own unique personalities and special needs, and not gain some specialized knowledge...which quite frankly i do wish i wasn't going to need!
oh yay.... serious and big time pig education begins this week (i believe the course is several years long!)...sweet and easy going ellie was just the teaser to pique my interest and hone my deep respect for them, brad was the reality check...this might be a bit more difficult then i think...and now the charlotte and wills reality means i better learn a heck of a lot more if i want to do a good job with our suddenly much larger pig family....(in retrospect...just ellie was so freaking piece of cake easy!)
on-going education might be a good thing but sometimes having to actually do it kind of sucks....innocent ignorance looks good on some days....like today.
oh well.... i will worry about my newest necessary long term learning curve on saturday (is this the chinese year of the pig? does anyone know???)...today i am just dealing with wolf calling fire alarms...oh and that tour and interview with BCNU..shit! i forgot that was today and it is pissing rain out there so that will suck for the tour....saints tours suck in the pouring down rain!
I'm going to catch the 6:30am ferry to make it back on the 12:30pm so we can have some daylight still - should be there by 4pm, see you all Sat! :)
