It’s been three weeks, today, my husband has been in a critical care facility. I’ll spare you the details for now. The possibility of his recovery is uncertain for now. He is, making some improvements. Time will tell. I’ve been making two trips to the hospital daily, and it is wearing me down. The emotional roller coaster ride is definitely taking its toll on me. Because of it, I haven’t spent much time with the horses. I’m not sure I realized in the past, how much time it takes to care for this place. Fences need mending, water needs to be drawn, pasture needs mowing and so many other things I haven’t the time to list. There’s been so many things to get done.
This past weekend, my son helped do all the things my husband normally does. My grand-daughters came with him and helped mend the fence Jewels destroyed the day before. They actually took the whole fence down and replaced it. We all worked on the lawn, mowed the back pasture, pruned a bunch of trees and carried stuff we didn’t need to the street. The city picks up junk around the first of the month. They did an awesome job. It was long over due. The girls and I did get to spend a little time messing with the horses. We didn’t get a chance to ride. Time didn’t permit. Any time, is better than nothing, so we took advantage of it.
