Please raise your hand if you are bored out of your mind with nothing interesting going on in your life. Anyone? Didn't think so. That means I am in good company. Here's a list of the many, many things that are keeping me from relaxing and lounging around.
- Getting bucked off nearly two weeks ago. I still hurt which means I can't "sit" for long, or I get even more achey!
- Two horses. It doesn't matter how busy I am at home or work, they still need to be ridden and turned out.
- Tobias. Oh. My. Goodness. I have been to the grocery store a lot this week for this little dude. He is improving daily, for which we are grateful, but that improvement has come with a lot of work. He's on a special diet of chicken breast and rice (and hotdogs for hiding the antibiotic). I totally underestimated how much chicken a 30 pound puppy could consume on a daily basis. And then there's the cooking of the chicken breast and rice. Yes, I cook it in bulk, but you'd be surprised how much rice he eats! (And please don't suggest raw chicken. I despise touching the raw chicken as it is. No way I am serving it that way!)
- The vet. It's a good thing I really like Dr. Thurman and his staff as we've been in there three times over the last twelve days. It's not that big of a deal, but it's a twenty-five minute drive to the vet center after my twenty-five minute drive home from work to get Tobias. I come home from work, pick up the puppy, and head back across town. During rush hour. We go back next Wednesday and then again two to three weeks later. I'll be done with work by that time so it won't be two-a-days like it has been.
It's all in the choices we make. I am glad for these problems and wouldn't trade them for someone else's "easier" life. Even so, I am looking forward to a little peace and quiet over the three-day weekend.
