I don't feel guilty about not making it out there, but I wish I could have actually administered the 30th aspirin dose on day 30. But honestly, 30 (actually more counting the days before the countdown began) consecutive barn days is a lot. I enjoy taking care of my boys' day to day needs: I clean their stalls/runs each evening, feed them their beet pulp and rice bran, and of course they get exercised. But occasionally, I do have other obligations.
Yesterday, I got to work at my regular crack-of-dawn time, 6:30, but when I should have left at 3:20, I went to a work-related meeting that lasted until 5:00. The meeting took place at another school farther from home than my own school site, so the drive home was even longer than normal. When I walked in the door just a few minutes shy of 6:00 p.m., I knew Speedy was going to have to suck it up.
I wish there was just some way to add more hours to the extended daylight. I need at least 26 hours on the clock!
