Sick days

I try to stay on the positive side mostly because it helps me so much to have a positive attitude when I think and talk about the positive.  But we all have problems.  Some just choose to dwell on the negative.  Those are the type of people that I would like to slap upside the head and say, shut up whiner.  Do you think you are the only one who has problems?  Some of us just choose not to bitch about it all the time.  So after saying all that here is a warning that I am about to bitch and whine for moment.

I mention often the positive of having my horses just out my back door, but today I am going to point out a negative.  No sick days, no replacement, no one to fill in when your head is so full of snot, you can't stop coughing and you feel like total crap.  Nope the animals still need to eat and drink.  The weather does not cooperate and all the chores must still be done and if I don't do it, who will?


  1. It's good to discuss both the positives and the negatives of any horsekeeping situation. Personally, having mine at home will never be the situation for me for many reasons. Within reason, I try to point out both the positives and the negatives of my horse journey on my blog, because a lot of the time our blogs are our "best face forward," and there's so much more to the reality of horsekeeping than that. I appreciate the negative insight!

  2. Kids, animals...they still need you, sick or healthy. Feel better quick, Amy!

  3. You need a slave. If you find a good one, clone it and send me a copy.

  4. There's nothing wrong with venting every once in a while. Hope you're feeling better.


Steady and I love your feedback, so don't be shy!
