T Minus 2 days until my flight leaves!!!

I have been scurrying around trying to get everything taken care of before we leave for Italy..
I also got the ok that I was Qualified to run for coroner at the next election..  I'm pretty darn stoked about that...

I also got a wild hair up my butt to try on my wedding dress....

It totally still fits :)  and this all came about because I was doing an autopsy last week and it was a female that was my age... open her up and she had like 4" of adipose tissue before we even got to her viscera.. and I was thinking man.. I can't let myself get like that... then get to her ovaries and find out she had ovarian and uterine cancer and had cirrhosis of her liver already.... So I'm thinking man.. she must have partied non-stop...  then I was completely thinking her lungs were going to be wrecked.. and they weren't, so at least she didn't smoke.... but, she ultimately died of a pulmonary embolism...
So, that being said...  I have been back on a health kick.. I wasn't really off of it.. but, ever since clint got hurt, I haven't been exercising... and its been over 105 degrees everyday.. so I haven't been outside doing normal stuff like I usually am...  and when I'm gone for two weeks, I need to make sure I walk a lot and do some yoga in the mornings...

Next sad thing...  Poor Juan passed away..
I'm not sure how old he was when we rescued him but, he has crossed over the rainbow bridge.. Poor Fella...  I said, at least he enjoyed the last few years of his life..

and I got my barn finished finally.. well it's like 99% done..
Set up the Theraplate so I can rehab some ponies.. and all that is left to be done, is put up the feed buckets and hay racks.. then move in to the tack room :)

And that is about all..
I have two very busy days at work.. and then I'm off like a prom dress to Italy!

Riding on this crazy train!

So, I went to the convention...
I took my mother and my secretary/friend with me.. and we headed out for myrtle beach.. and by the time we hit columbia, we decided we were hungry.. so we stopped at a British pub.. and had a array of food and some black and tans... then decided we needed to go shopping since we had victoria secret's coupons.. so we did that.. then had to stop in belks.. and looked at shoes.. and realized it was about 3.. and we still had like 3ish more hours to drive.. haah.. so off we headed.. we finally made it up to the hotel in North Myrtle beach... threw our stuff down in the suite.. and headed out to calabash, NC to find some seafood...
once we were done up there.. we found a TJMaxx O.o so we needed to stop there.. and then it was like the Gods were smiling down upon us and we found a frozen yogurt place!!!!!
I was so excited.. so we ate yogurt to our hearts content.. and headed back to the hotel....  I went on the balcony and saw this beautiful sight..... There is nothing like the moon and the ocean....  I love the ocean... I just hate the beach...   but Anyways... the next few days were full on convention stuff and our annual banquet.. to which I found out that I had won an award!


I didn't even know I was up for nomination...  I was sitting there talking about getting a job as a Gross Anatomy instructor at the college up the street.. and I heard something.. and I thought for a second... I did that... then I went back to talking.. and then I said.. Wait a minute..I think they are talking about me... :)  So I won young doc of the year!  I was so excited...
after the banquet.. I put that award next to me at the bar.. and us three girls didn't have to pay for any drinks :)

meanwhile back on the farm...  We have 4 babies!  and awaiting 2 more...
I also found  my chickens screaming in the coop.. so I go wandering over there and find a snake...
I called for help.. but no one was around.. I called my cowboy on the phone and I heard it ringing in his truck....  so I bucked up.. and picked the joker up.. went into the house with him and said "I NEED YOUR HELP"
That snake was the same size I was....
So I had Clint go get a pillow case and I put him in it.. and we took him down a logging road and re-homed him..
I was trying to explain he couldn't stay here..
I like my eggs.. and I like my chickens..
and I don't like the likes of him trying to steal my eggs...

I made the mistake of putting this picture on facebook.. and you should have seen all the feathers i ruffled...

comments like "don't kill it", "please tell me you didn't kill a harmles snake", "call me I'll take it"..
I'm like please people... I love snakes... I'm not going to kill the joker.. I just re-homed him...
Facebook annoys me these days...  nothing on there but lips and assholes... kinda like the contents of hot dogs... disgusting crap.. haha

that's about all the big news around here...   The final countdown to Italy has started....  I'm so excited I can't stand it... and I'm starting to have problems sleeping... 12 more days....

I am going to a competition by myself this weekend.. just me and hell bitch...
it's been a while since it's just been me and my horse.. :)

well

what a great turn around shit has made..
I'm going to hit the highlights.. because i'm at a conference with free internet... and I'm going to catch up real fast.. nothing major has really gone on...
But...........
We have had 3 babies born..  :)




And last weekend, we went to a competition.. I competed and My cowboy announced the whole thing..
I had a great time on my new horse.... I mean a really great time.. I'm so proud of her..
we won our class both days...  :) but, before that... we decided that the venue that was having the competition was a little bit small for us to take the tractor trailer into.. so we took the 2 horse bumper pull and went to get a hotel... well... no hotels around for like 20 miles.. we fine one 'lodge" that had accommodations for us.. and we roll up.. and find the sign to the place.. has christmas lights around it.. and we laughed.. then climb the mountain to the lodge.. to see  a room that has a christmas tree in it.. and lights around the windows.. we laughed even harder about that.. being it's almost June and all...
and I roll up into the lobby and get us check in.. and the guy says "Oh Great!!! You are in the Christmas room" so I start laughing and realize he was serious... so I'm all "what?!?!" and he said.. you are staying in our Christmas Room............................... dead silence...................  I said.. "oh"  and he asked if I had a problem with that.. and I explained we weren't anti-american.. we were christians.. and would take the room....

and oh my god.......... the pillow shams had gingerbread men on them and said NOEL.. the comforters on the bed were christmas themed,. not to mention the christmas tree that was in the room...
Oh my god.. this was like the Bates motel.. and we were in room 103............ I texted my parents to let them know I was in east bumble in room number 103.. and wondering if I was about to relieve a scene out of Psyhco.......
Just saying'......

we did take a photo opportunity... while we were in there...
this may just be this year's christmas card.. :)






We came back Sunday.. and I put the horses back in their paddock.. then checked on the "maternity ward" then was walking by the chicken coop and I heard a combination coming out of there.. So I went into the coop and found a snake curled up around an egg... and the hens are in the corner of the coop freaking the hell out... I got out my cell phone and called Clint.. but, I heard his cell phone ringing in the truck.. so I tried yelling for him.. and that was of no luck....
So..... well........ I picked the joker up..
Finally got ahold of my cowboy...and showed him why I was screaming for him... and I put him in a pillow sack.. and we drove him to a login road down the street and let him go..
no snake around my house is going to Terrorize my poor hens and eat the damn eggs... I was pissed..
Just saying'.....


Life has been good around the ranch.. even hammy is feeling it.... :)


The barn is almost completed.. I hung up the sign that my grandfather and I made for my first horse Romeo and hung up a picture of him.... I miss both of them..

And I'm at a convention in Myrtle beach... for continuing education classes,...
and this is the view out of my hotel window..
