Since the minute the family left everything that could fall apart did, including me. Monday morning I manage to trip over the wheel barrow and gash my leg. One of the horses got an abscess which is according to Wikepedia, is a "collection of pus (dead neutrophils) that has accumulated in a cavity formed by the tissue on the basis of an infection." Pretty much the vet had to come cut out the infected area and now I have to pop the blister and let the puss drip out then stick the hose (the hole IS that big) and rinse it out, twice a day. Yes it looks disgusting but it smells even worse. It smells like food that got stuck in the hole where your wisdom teeth were removed. THEN a horse stomped on my foot, can't walk on it and swells to twice the size. Then last but not least I slam my finger in a door and that is when I started to cry. I am no longer afraid of the dark at night I am more afraid of the day now.
My foot is feeling better and I can now fit it into a shoe and the horse's puss is oozing nicely (according to the vet). I think I have everything a little more under control.
Last night I went over for dinner to my new friend Gina from Holland who is also wwoofing down the street. They have a new kitten so I hung out there and then biked home in the pitch dark and my legs were paddling so fast I don't think you would be able to see them. They offered to walk me home but I was too embarassed to say I needed to be walked home at 26 years old, and they only live 2 houses down This morning though Gina and I went for a sunrise bike ride and hopefully she comes over later and we can lay by the pool. It is actually raining here for the first time but I don't think it will last long. The weather is a cross between Phoenix and San Diego so everyone is a bit shocked it is actually raining. People drive in the rain like we drive in the snow.
Going to go check on the animals. I have nightmares everynight that a fox has gotten into the chicken coop and I wake up to an empty coop with a bunch of feathers...
