I know! I guess they have sensors to detect the direction of movement in a film. It came out very narrow but it was still great to see it without kinking my head over. I love hearing your voice and all that raw emotion.

So happy for you, that you got it together so easily! I still need to dig out my steering wheel cover... its somewhere in the storage room.
Hope your day works out! Storm... go away!

We're getting a snow storm tonight and tomorrow. Up to 6 inches! Hope it's not that much. Depends on the temps, I guess.
Ttys! Good night!

Is your part of the storm over now Tammy or is it still affecting you? Here is a copy/paste from what I put on the horse thread:

It's snowing. When I woke up, it was coming down slowly and in a straight, lazy path to the earth. Then it began going sideways, but all together and in no hurry. Lately things are beginning to change yet again. I see them speeding past the window and at some points even swirling from time to time before returning to the sideways direction. And we're all just beginning to experience this storm system. It's 14°.

I woke early (11:20 am, after hitting the snooze from the alarm that was going off since 10:30) and am now having my first cup of coffee. I'm not sure what time I'm going to head to the barn. I need to hear the battle plan from the manager. I'll call her and see if the horses are going to be in or out, wearing winters or not, etc. If I have to change 14 coats.

I was just about to call her and she called me. She said to leave the coats on the duplex guys and just apply the barn guy's winters. But she said if the undercoats on the duplex guys were wet, to change them out. I told her that the undercoats ARE going to be wet because of the snow. She said, "Really?" (She doesn't know this???) I said they get wet around their backsides where there is only a tail flap on the sheet. She said "Don't worry about it then. I'll take care of them when I get home."

Then she said if I was going to be feeding and leaving early, not to close them inside the duplexes. But she said if the snow was blowing into the stalls, close them. But leave Frodo's top half open or he'll go nuts. Why close it at all? The snow will blow into the top half just as much as the bottom half. I don't freaking know.

She said she'll ask the lady who lives down the road a piece (how's THAT for back-woods country talk?) to come and help me at some point, to pass out the grain, pick hooves, etc (She's actually the founder and one of the instructors during program). The best thing she said was "don't worry about the paddocks." I won't, then! Tomorrow the snow will be over and I can try and locate all the piles of poop then. I hope my usual Sunday helpers come tomorrow. The three of us can get us caught back up for sure.

Our staff meeting is Tuesday. OMG, give me the courage to say what needs to be said. Amen. (And help me be prepared for anything that may be said about me.)

How could they say anything bad about you? You bust your butt there! ��. Don't have me come up there and set them straight! Lol
We're just getting flurries right now. Tonight is going to be bad. And my dd is going to use the "night at the casino hotel and $50 free play" thing she won at her job tonight. Guess they'll take the shuttle from the hotel. If she was nice, she woulda gave that to her brother. We're taking him to the casino when he comes home. He'll love it! ��
I have to spend a couple hours with Chloe's dad today. He hasn't seen her in a couple weeks since we went to Ky last week. I'm asking him what he got Chloe so far for Xmas. I know he bought her 2 pr of Jordan sneakers and clothes. Just wondering about toys. I'll tell him what my dd has bought so far. I'm getting her a fire truck and a child's train set along with whatever else I wanna buy! Lol She saw a fire truck at the store and went crazy! So I'm buying it! I'm getting her some dress up clothes they gave at toys r us. They have accessories like shoes and jewelry that match the dresses. They're so cute.
Too bad you can't stay at the farm tonight. You be careful driving.
I have to throw on some clothes now. It's 1:30 so I better get ready for the dad. Ugh!
BBL.

Because I am OPINIONATED and act like I RUN THE PLACE! I find it hard to shut my trap when I disagree with something, but that's just the Registered Nurse in me. Being a "patient advocate" is a big part of being a nurse and my patients are now the horses, goat, mini's, my fellow workers, etc. (But thanks for having my back, Tammy. )

Hey! Maybe she'll be a lady fireman! Talk about a great work environment! I wish I had chosen a vocation that put me in the midst of a bunch of very fit men. Oh, well. In my next life, perhaps. The fire house saved my bacon today by jump-starting my dead battery so I could get to work. It was nice that they were there and ready to help at a moment's notice.

I would have stayed at the farm if the manager had said it would be okay to bring Cisco. I told her that soon, we need to get her dog and my dog acquainted because we are going to encounter more and more times of storms like this over the next few months. I believe her dog will get accustomed to my dog if given the right exposure. My dog is just a marshmallow and her dog is the same, deep down; under that German Shepard, don't-mess-with-my-mom-attitude, backed up by all those gleaming teeth.

Night night. I'm whipped. I wrote a bunch on the horse thread. Go fetch if you want to read more.

I read your posts on Horse Lovers. What a day. It sounded difficult but very rewarding. I especially enjoyed reading about your bonding with Ellen (am I remembering her name correctly?). Sharing love is the most wonderful of life's experiences.

So are the neighbors who started your battery the same ones who called you about the power? Are they firemen? You mentioned that two teens helped you with the battery so obviously they aren't members of the fire dept. It was great you were able to hang out at the farm until power was restored and kind of amazing that you thought to take dinner along just in case. Yep, what a day.

Laura, you hit the nail on the head! It's a nurse thing. I can't help it. Find a problem, fix it. See a conflict, resolve it.

Yes, (Lola) you remembered her name right. It worked out perfectly. No, the people who live in the second floor of my house are a young newly-wed couple with their dog. The lady texted me. The fire department guys were across the street and I saw a bunch of trucks and activity over there and took advantage of them.

Now my self-jumper for the battery is all charged up and I'll put it into the trunk for when I need it again. If I don't use it in the next few weeks, I should charge it up again. I haven't needed to jump my battery in a very long time. When I had my car alarm, it would drain my battery down if the car sat for more than 3 days without being started. (I used to hardly ever leave the house, pre horse farm days). I had them uninstall it and that fixed the problem. It was installed at the dealership and they must have botched it somehow.

I woke to a nice surprise (and a slight hangover. ) The plow guy came and did my driveway! He did the side I wasn't parked in and then he side-passed behind my car. Now all I have to do is clean off the car and shovel around it. And the sidewalks and porches. Come to think of it, what am I doing on this darn computer?

BBL. A lot warmer today. 30! Hope my volunteers show up.

Okay. I'm going to give you the short version cause the manager is going to be calling me for report soon. She must be busy tonight. I had two new volunteers tonight! One with zero experience but about my age and the other is a teen girl who's been taking riding lessons for 3 months. I can work with people like that. I've been hankering for some senior citizens! They have challenging names that will take me a while to remember; especially the older lady.

Everyone was turned-out without any coats today cause it was around 30 degrees. Balmy! But when the wind kicked up, I felt sorry for them. Nobody was shivery so they must have felt okay. I turned them in at 4 and we put on their winters. I had two other regular volunteers so it was cool to sometimes ask them to show the new ladies how to do this or that. Delegating! Yeehaw. And I'm sure it makes them feel important too, that I trust them to teach someone else.

I let them all leave ("let them" isn't the right way to put it but I told them I was good from that point on) at 5pm. All I had left to do was rub Daphne's itchy spots (which I showed the volunteers) and clean Red's butt, legs and tail from the diarrhea. It's so much worse now. It's going to be a major part of what we talk about at our meeting in 3 days. Enough's enough. This is the wrong time of year to be trying anything "experimental."

This time, I went all-out. The manager asked me to be sure and clean him. Yesterday I didn't know how to even go about it with the cold and snow blowing and all that. I didn't want to make things even worse by wetting him down further. Today I actually soaked his tail in a bucket of warm water with a little soap in it. (Dish soap. Don't tell anybody. ) It worked fine. WAY better than just plain hot water. I let it soak and I swished it around for a while to dissolve any solids in there and then I took a long time to dry it with a towel. I hope it stays clean for a while. I know it won't.

I'm going to ask the manager not to clean him the day before and the day of our meeting. The director needs to see how he's become over the course of his "treatment." I mean, I guess we should clean him but just document with pictures. I already took one yesterday. It was funny cause every time I tried to get into a position to take the pic, he would think I was driving him and start walking. Took a long time to just get him to stand still long enough to take it.

This was supposed to be the short version, right? I should have known all I needed was a warm-up. So I dried him as best as I could but his leg just wouldn't dry. Poor horse. And the other horse who is also on this "detox" isn't doing well, either. Nothing kills Cowboy's appetite and tonight he was standing there with his head over his stall door, messing with us. And once I heard his stomach grumbling terribly. He ate his grain but wasn't interested in the hay. A very big change in his behavior. I hate this crap.

I know that he and Ellen the goat have this "thang" going on so I let her out of her stall (she was nestled into her straw and I had to really coax her to get on her feet, but I had to apply her coat, too) so she could go over and interact with him. She mock head-butts his face, he mock bites her. Things started out that way but even that didn't go on for long. He just wasn't feeling right. And Ellen went and pee'd on the dang barn floor so I had to go grab some bedding to sop it up. The barn was already swept but somehow it became gross all over again and I had to sweep both sides before I left.

So everyone got blanketed, tucked-in, waters topped-off, cats got a can of food (although I only saw one of them and the food is going to freeze in the bowl), readied the hay cart for the manager to do night-check, tucked in the wheelbarrow's (where the hay barn is), put a heated bucket of water into the grain room (by request) and brought the morning grain buckets down to the house (the ones that will need hot water and Miracle Clay. Our outdoor hot water faucet is frozen.)

Frodo didn't hate me for closing him in last night. In fact, he was on his very best behavior when there were three of us in his area teaching one of the new volunteers how to pick icy hooves and apply their sheets. I was impressed with him. When he wants to be good, he's excellent. But you never know what your gonna get (as Forrest Gump would say.)

So eventually everything got done and I was able to turn off their lights, close the barn doors, and get indoors to sign out and lock up. It takes so long to get to that point in the night! I don't know how it takes so long to do what I do. The manager almost giggles at me when I say I need to get off the phone because I have a lot of work to do. She compares it to the morning chores and I do admit, mornings are a lot more work. But it's work in the pm, too. Especially when you're orienting newbies.

Not to mention, I had to add bedding to 7 out of the 8 stalls. I almost never have to do that. Half a bag each but a whole bag for the mini's shelter. I did all of them except the mini's. I delegated that job to the elder regular volunteer (she's younger than I am but she's the mother of the daughter and they come together each Sunday.)

When I'm done, I can hardly move. My spine is so out of whack that when I get into my car, I have to grab onto things and slowly slide down into the bucket seat. I really need:

1- Weight loss
2- Regular exercise
3- A good Chiro
4- Motivation
5- A miracle

Well, that's enough for tonight. Have a great night, y'all.

Your poor back! That's a full day, no wonder it's so sore! A good chiro and some back exercises to strengthen those muscles would help. Dh has back issues and was told to work his abs to help his back. Made sense . Hope you slept well!

Me too! Hope you feel so much better.

Yikes! I've lived with back issues for many years and have found that one of the things that has most helped me is the yoga pose 'the plow'. It just stretches out all those muscles and assists in bringing relief. It feels so good that I do it for the stretching, relaxation and serotonin boost even when my back is perfectly fine to begin with!

Have a great day, Cheryl, and may you begin to make a dent in your bucket list.

Thanks, ladies. Yeah; the whole problem is my core is weak (but I do think my spine needs adjusting). I should practice doing planks. That's supposed to be a great all-around exercise, especially for your core. But at my weight, it would be tough. The back pain and stiffness is the same every day that I work. It's noticeable on my off-work days too but not like that.

Today is only going to be in the 20's with a pretty stiff breeze. I will protect my face with the mask that I bought (pull over thing with breathing holes in the mouth and nose part. Works very well!) and put a knitted hat over that. May add a ball cap and the hood on my coat if I need to cut the wind more. (The ball cap keeps the hood from flopping over my eyes.)

I texted my landlady yesterday to thank her for including plowing in the rent. She never responded. Rude. I tend to read things into things so this time I won't do that. I'll believe there is a good reason why she didn't and just go on my merry way.

Cissy was really wolfing down her kibble this morning so I gave her a double scoop. Maybe she needs a big breakfast to kick off her day. I bought the food for weight management but if I feed her too much, it will defeat the purpose.

OMG! I'm watching The Price is Right and the game was Plinko. You get one free chip, then you have to get the prices right on four other items. The woman chose the wrong price on each of the items. She goes up the stairs and lets her one Plinko chip go and it lands in the $10K slot! Unbelievable. Good for her!

I need to go get caught up on the threads I've been neglecting. Bbl. Have a blessed day.

Yikes! I've lived with back issues for many years and have found that one of the things that has most helped me is the yoga pose 'the plow'. It just stretches out all those muscles and assists in bringing relief. It feels so good that I do it for the stretching, relaxation and serotonin boost even when my back is perfectly fine to begin with!

Have a great day, Cheryl, and may you begin to make a dent in your bucket list.
Thank you, Lola. I will google that pose and see what it is. I think I know but it's worth knowing for sure. If it makes you feel that good, I want some of that myself. Have a great day.

ETA: Ooh! That looks goooooood. I can't do that at the weight I'm at now though. I wouldn't be able to breathe!

My dd does yoga and Chloe tries too! They love it. I wish I could just stretch in the morning when I wake up! Lol.
Stay warm today. I'm glad I have no reason to go outdoors. The cold just makes me ache! I can do without the extra pain.
I'm counting down the days til Shawn is home for 3 weeks! Saturday is the day!!!

It was okay. I didn't have to change any of the horses' coats and so that was a big relief. It was cold enough that they already had their winter coats on. Tomorrow is snow. Again. And I have someone who has agreed to come help me, who lives almost next door to the farm so I was able to tell the lady who was coming from far away that she could stay home. I won't be worrying about paddocks. If it snows enough, it will cover up everything and make it look like I cleaned it.

It's late here but if you go to the horsey thread, you can read about my day. Hope you're having a great night.

So, your car is handling the snow ok?
Everyone here is hoping for snow... the rain is making ice, not fun. And melting the snow... Although our ski-hill has a lot of new snow.
Cute pictures! Hope you have a good rest.

Yes and no. I'm getting back and forth to work but it's not great when the roads are bad. I go very slowly and leave lots of space ahead of me. It's just knowing how to drive in snow, is all. Some people never learn how. I grew up here so it's like "riding a bicycle." It would be great if I had three new tires. I was only able to buy one new one last year, before I got the farm job. But the others are dry-rotting on the sides.

I hope you get some snow! You can have ours!

Read your post and some others..

Love to hear about the farm. Bet your losing inches
if not weight with all exercise you get.
(walking, hauling, cleaning ect)

PLEASE get some tires before the snow blower.
Think of your SAFETY! Your tires sound bad.
With your weather..good tires are a MUST!

Please take care.
