Wet and Vet

It is only Tuesday and I will admit I'm pretty ready for this week to be done. The two adjectives that would best describe the last couple of days are rain and vet. We've seen more than our share of both in the last couple of days. 

After having exactly 0.0 inches of rain at the farm in the month of September we are already at eight inches and counting for the month of October. Rain is great and generally I don't complain about it much, but I'm teetering on the edge of complaining about it after the last few days of rain and more rain. 

Our main vet is great too and I don't usually complain about him either. But generally the more I am having to see and talk to him the more it means things are not going to plan. As we were feeding horses yesterday we kept finding problem after problem. I so love our long stretches where we have no need to see or talk to a vet. However those stretches always seem to end in an impressive manner. We've seen the vet twice in the last couple of days and made a trip to the clinic with a horse. The good news is everything seems to be back under control.  The bad news is we appear to have re-entered another run of vet visits. 

If you looked at my phone calls and text messages from the last couple of days you would see pretty much every phone call and text message was with the vet. If Jason and I did not work together and he only glanced at my phone activity he would immediately wonder exactly who this person was and why I needed to talk and text with him over and over and over.

If you need me in the next few days just look for the soaking wet person talking to her horse vet on the phone. If you see that person you will have found me. According to the AccuWeather app on my phone we are supposed to have a few dry days in a row coming up. However given the volume of rain we've had, and given the number of times AccuWeather has told me it is cloudy or sunny as I find myself in the midst of a downpour the last few days . . . Let's just say I've lost faith in my weather app since it has lied to me repeatedly.

Very wet here too. I only use NOAA for weather - don't know if they have a phone app. Glad all the vet visits worked out OK - I'm having another set with Dawn right now - she somehow managed to abrade one side of her tongue. Emergency vet Monday night, dental vets Thursday. I could use a break from it, too!

There's a weather app called Radar Plus that I use - you have to buy it but the radar is very reliable.

Re emergency vet visits - lalalalalalalala *fingers in ears* ;D
