I'm not dead, just sick!

Farmers are the only people I know that still have to work when they are sick. Even on their death bed, the needs of the animals depend on the farmer. I've been sick for awhile, first with sinus and head colds and now with the all out flu. I don't get sick often, but don't realize how much I actually NEED to do each day when I AM sick.

I've had a hundred things to blog about, but too sore, tired, and miserable to be able to do much. Everytime I feel good, I go out and do chores only to feel bad again. Last evening my dad did my chores. Its not something I ask of often as its my responsibility, not his. I missed my time with the critters. I hate sitting around and I hate watching TV. You can only watch so much and sit for so long and I've done it for four days. That's four days too many!

I promise to be back soon. I know you've missed me ;)

I have missed you, Garrett. Sorry to hear you are ill. No fun. Hope you feel much better soon!

Yes, I hope you're better soon too Garrett. It's a good thing you got your breeding pens together before you got too sick to do it.
I'm looking forward to you getting back to posting again soon!

Yes, get better Garrett! I can empathize with you! Last spring I got severe bronchitis with about 101 fever for a whole week (the worst part). It was truly miserable doing chores with a fever. Not to mention toward the end of the week lambing started! The cough then hung on for another 3 weeks. Was a rough month. Get well Soon!

Hey Garrett ~ I hope you're feeling better soon! I'm sure your ANIMALS are missing you! Do your dogs snuggle with you when you're laying on the couch, or in the bed, to keep you company? My Bella is my electric blanket. ;-)

Feel better!

Garrett, did you DIE? I hope not, but you've been an awfully quiet blogger!

Garrett,
Where are you? I miss your blog...and I hope you aren't deathly ill. Take care of yourself, or have someone take care of you. (And drop us a tiny sentence just so we know you are alive!)

Shetland Breeding Groups

Every year the long anticipated breeding groups always seem to catch me by surprise. Had it not been for my severely sprained ankle, I prob...
