Monday morning not so bright and early (my friend Jane has never been a morning person) Jane, Paul and the two pooches headed down the driveway. I heard from them later in the day and they had landed at a Cracker Barrel for the night having experienced some awful roads, so rough that it sheared the bolts off one of their small couches which was attached to the wall. Tuesday afternoon they made it to Evanston, WY and were halted by a closed I-80 due to the snowstorm in Wyoming and Colorado. Wednesday afternoon they were finally home. Stressful travel!
After our visitors departed I cleaned the house a bit, the Cowboy changed out a light switch and swept the cabinet making room–and that was it for his shoulder. The shoulder was really painful Monday afternoon and evening to the point we were considering a visit to the ER on Tuesday. After a careful massage from his dear wife and a hot shower he could lift his arm over his head–this was a first since last Wednesday. Tuesday he worked on the cabinets–building and even sanding a couple cabinet doors. The shoulder is very sore and now his neck is bothering him. Between the two of us we only have about one half of a body that’s not painful!
Tuesday I applied some more polyurethane and cooked a fabulous lunch–meatloaf, mashed potatoes, asparagus and salad. It was so, so good.
The wind is trying to blow us to New Mexico again. Tuesday was a miserable day–so incredibly windy with a high temp of 50 degrees. I hung some jeans on the clothesline and let me tell you it didn’t take very long for those to dry! But Wednesday the wind was gone and it was about 66 degrees and sunny–a perfect day!
And as if I didn’t have enough to worry about with the Cowboy and his shoulder Emmi decided to have bloody diarrhea–again–she had it in January. After eight phone calls to veterinarians and the emergency hospital in Tucson I finally found a clinic that would make time for us. I would have just taken her to the emergency clinic in Tucson but they told me the wait today was EIGHT hours or longer!! Instead we went to Benson Animal Hospital. We’ve been there before and weren’t impressed but today the experience was totally different. We saw a relief veterinarian and he could not have been more thorough or caring. The technicians and front office people were amazing! Very happy with our visit and Emmi is medicated and on the mend. Whew!! Are we done??
