I awoke this morning with my face burried in my pillow. How was I breathing??? I thought. I rolled over and something was not quite right. I jumped up and went into the bathroom where the sight I beheld was frightful to say the least - my left eye was almost swollen shut. I went back to the bedroom and woke Don up.
"Look at this!" I exclaimed.
He raised his back from the bed trying to focus on me, when a huge smile crossed his face, followed by a smirk...
"I told you to do what I asked you the first time".. he said laughing out loud as he fell back into bed.
"That is NOT funny.." I said as I went running back to the bathroom, "Joy is bringing her (boy) friend over tonight and I do not want to look like a freak!
I have to admit that he had a point. I looked like I had been in a major fist fight. I grabbed a wash cloth filled with ice and headed back to lay down. Some of the swelling did go down, at least enough for me to see my computer screen.
3 hours later
I was working when all of a sudden, Joy's horse started to make a lot of noise, both in movement and verbally. It continured on for several minutes. I had to get up to look out the window to investivate - (remember - we currently live above our barn). What I saw would make any horse persons heart speed up by a thousand... ALL of our back pasture horses were out and running around!
I signed out for a 'break" from work and went out to try and corral them back in. One huge problem stood in my way - the grass outside of the back pasture (not mowed) was more lush than the grass inside - so the horses had NO intention of going back! Also - they were happy to visit with 2 horses that live in another paddock.
Long story short -
Good News - All horses were now contained
Bad News - None were in the back pasture
Good News - in the space of about 15 minutes - I had logged well over 2000 steps on my Pedometer!
All this before noon! Life is never boring!!!
