Another Sleepless Night - Wow, sounds almost like a movie. Ha ha.
It is pouring down rain and the wind is blowing like crazy. It is a beautiful, wild morning, but quite cold. The winds are intense and the rain is coming down in sheets. Quite stormy, which is my favorite if it is raining. My fingers are freezing as I type, but the rest of me is warm and snug under my comforter. It is about 4:45 a.m. Right now, and I am not sure if the time has changed on my computer. I do believe I read an email stating this was the weekend.
It is kind of annoying as I listen to my hubby's alarm going off. As we have literally been awake since about 3:00 a.m., he has already gotten up and went inside. However he forgot to turn off his alarm clock.. I have kind of an issue with "beeping" etc. From being in ICU for a week during one of my surgeries. My little alarm went off pretty much 24/7 as I could not stop fidgeting because it wasn't the most pleasant feeling I have ever had. So now those noises drive me nuts. But,,,,,,, I am being a baby because it is cold and I am so warm and snug that I don't want to get up and turn it off. Pretty sad - huh? Ha ha. But in my defense I really didn't get any sleep again, so that must give me some room to be a wuss.
About 3 a.m., HB got stuck on the door. I am hoping he outgrows this little issue before he gets too big for me to move. I can barely get him rolled over now. Poor Patches was right outside, but he didn't want to stay in the outdoor shelter, he wanted to be inside with us. So once again we are all together inside. So far so good. We don't appear to be flooding inside or leaking either. It is still too cold, but hopefully our friend will get here next week and we can start getting it weather tight, insulated and it will be safe for HB
The noise on the tin roof is deafening. You can't hear anything but the driving rain smashing against the roof. The wind sounds like the ocean as it sweeps the water across the roof. It is kind of cool as it sounds like the ocean is "rolling in" over my head.
We appreciate all the good thoughts, ideas, etc. For helping Honey Bandit. I welcome anyone who would like to send their "favorite cure". I know there are so many things out there, but I do not have funds to buy each and everyone, or even a couple for that matter, to try them. I also have to follow my vet's guidance, along with Shirley's and Susan's of course, as to the very delicate changes we make to his regimen. So please do not think that we don't pay attention to all the good advice, or that I don't discuss them with my vet. But we simply cannot afford to get them. If anyone has a "hood" that they are not using that they wouldn't mind letting HB use it would be awesome. He is getting so big and now he is trying to outgrow all of his blankets. (little brat - ha ha). Just like a kid to out grow his clothes. Isn't that just the most wonderful thing to happen? Wasn't sure if we would ever have that problem. He can wear the very largest "mini blanket" or probably a yearling size horse blanket. Luckily he can still wear 2 of his blankets for awhile longer.
Our Million Dollar Mustang is on the way to making even more changes. It is so good to know that "the tides are changing", as my friend so eloquently stated. Again I got some great video of Patches and Honey Bandit playing. They only got to go outside for a couple of minutes as it was too rainy and cold for HB. But for now, all is quiet. HB is lying quietly and isn't stuck yet. Patches is still outside, although I am sure he will end up inside before too long. He has learned how to "knock", or rather pound on the door, when he truly needs to come in. Today two of his "aunties" came to visit, and after getting a lovely massage, he and Patches got very rowdy. They were chasing each other around inside the stall and rearing up and jumping on each other. It is very cute to watch, but not in such close quarters. So we are going to encourage that kind of play to stay outside.
Well it is getting very cold, so I am going to say goodnight and hide under the covers. Take care and have a wonderful day. Hugs.
