Real Live Farm-is-ville

I’m Farm-sitting again in Farmersville...No, no not the online Facebook version but with real-live animals!
I actually had someone ask me if I sat and did farmville on facebook all weekend....crazy.

It is so peaceful out here, just some bugs and an occasional bark from the dogs...Very nice. I am taking care of their 5 horses, and four dogs and have my own dog out here with me. Everyone is actually getting along fine. Since it isn’t supposed to rain like crazy, I may even ride some this weekend. That’ll be a twist! Even though I grew up on a horse, I haven’t ridden for a while now. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Right now, I’m just enjoying the quiet.

ANOTHER ugly standardized test!!

Wish me luck!! I have signed up for my CCRN or Critical Care Registered Nurse test. It is quite the “feather in my hat” and I hope I pass the first time!! I don’t want to take it again OR pay for it again.... It’s pricey! Work does reimburse once you pass. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!

A new adventure

I have had an over-powering urge to try rowing, or, sculling as I think it is most appropriately called. I have read some about it, and think it is right up my alley. I have been trying to get into the martial arts they way I need to in order to satisfy my need for physical exertion and it just isn’t doing it for me right now. I haven’t really taken a break from it in about 12 years, so this seems fitting. Sculling is supposed to do the same thing; be a total body workout and be super hard, sweat your butt off and exhaust you. Sounds perfect. The start up memberships and all are a little pricey, but still cheaper in the long run than my martial arts is. I will go give it a try and see. Maybe this will be my next 10 year obsession...
