Adventures of Ranch Life Alone...

So like I had mentioned in the post before, Josh is now gone for 3 months. Josh & Taylor have been gone for a few weeks here and there and everytime, something goes wrong at the ranch! It never fails! It is quite entertaining, so I decided to share these stories over the course of the next 3 months! That is a looonnnnggg time to be the "ranch help" on a 3,000 acre ranch where I don't feel I am that much help! Therefore, I am more like the "Ahh, call for help"! Along with the normal "ranch" duties I am preparing to become a wife, which entails modifying my cooking and cleaning skills! or lack there of! ;) Living so far out, we have to cook! Since Josh is now gone that means, I HAVE to cook. So I am trying new things! :)

2 weekends ago of course was my first few days home without Josh and I ventured off to Austin for a florist meeting with Brittney and her mom and my family. Of course, we had a heck of a time like my family always does and I ended up staying the night. Not a big deal, I thought atleast. I had the horse taken care of with the neighbors, and Rocky was on a 24 hr. fast because he had a little bit of loose pooh before I left, but was in great spirits.

I return home on Sunday, to a not so joyful Boxer. He felt terrible, and I could tell. He then preceded to (a little TMI) "poop" blood. I, of course freaked and did not want him to get worse like he did last time, because these were the exact same signs that happened in Feb. After much consideration, or 5 minutes, I decided to take him in to the emergency vet. I was not taking any chances of him getting that dehydrated again, and getting worse over the night AND it was going to be very hard to take him to the vet on Monday with an hr drive ea way and working 8-5: one of the consequences of not having a fiance around. Long story short he is fine now, and back to his normal self! Eating like his stomach never gets full, and doing chores with mom! :) Here is my happy boy Monday afternoon, already feeling 1,000x better!

Needless to say after dealing with a broken stud on Tuesday, Blow out on Thursday, 3 hour drive on Saturday & Sunday, sick dog on Sunday, 1 hr. Back to town Sunday and then back home, I was definitely ready to lay on the couch and call it one hell of a week. Could not wait for what the next week had in store!

Well that is enough for today!

Keep it Real,
