The Most Monday Ever

The Monday Post

Connery Beagle's ribsReally, this has got to be the most Monday ever.

This is our second week of wildly toting stuff between the two dwellings, a two-hour round trip, while hoping that snow doesn’t close the pass between us.

But only a week to go…

This is the first day of the barn-moving process, which should last five days, and which has started just as two horses have moved into Duncan’s neighborhood and put him into a high stallionesque dudgeon (no, he’s not.  But he was gelded very late and he still thinks he is).

Only four days of barn de- and re-construction after this one…

Truth is, we don’t actually know yet when I’ll be switching home bases between the houses–whenever Duncan goes–those logistics are to be decided today.

But in a short while, I won’t have to wonder any longer…

And this is, as it happens, Day Four of the three weeks that Connery Beagle is crate-restricted after his New Year’s Eve adventure in the yard, an over-enthusiastic romp during which his clueless, larger, and brain-injured (no, seriously–at birth) brother slammed him into some unyielding object and broke some ribs.  The wee little last rib and the one above–see them there, up on that little x-ray crop?

(Truth is, the very last rib isn’t visible, but I played with contrast and effects to get rest of it showing well.  They should ALL be nice and curvy-round…not, you know…crumpled).

So, no more walks on the land for the joyful Beagle for a while.

Only seventeen days to go before we can start careful rehab walking.  And we did have our single excellent walk out on the land together on Christmas.

Looks like a life of countdowns, starting with Monday!  Someone, tell me I’ve got company…what other countdowns are going on out there?


PS Countdown to no Internets?  TOTALLY UNKNOWN!
PPS Likelihood of Wednesday/Friday posts this week?  TOTALLY UNKNOWN!

    I’m counting down to spring, well since it does snow in spring to no snow

    Wow, that’s a long count! Or then…when does it get to be spring in your area?

    Just looking at that x-ray makes MY ribs kind of hurt. Poor Connery.

    I hope the rest of the move goes smoothly!

    I wouldn’t mind spring showing up either. Of course, then it’s tornado season. I need to live somewhere without so much crazy weather! 🙂

      *shudder* Tornadoes!

      Poor Boo dog. He is so baffled by the drugs. He really can’t think straight about *anything.*

    I have an eleven week countdown to a visit to Nebraska and Minnesota, one part of which includes me being a bridesmaid!

    And a countdown to December this year, when my parents plus a family friend come for an eight week visit!

    Hope His Nibs’ ribs are quick to heal! And REALLY hoping for a long, gentle, easy settling-in period at your new home.

    Those are great countdowns!

    Ohhh, I hope you’re right about settling in. I spent some quiet time there this afternoon while the barn guys were setting up the framework for my wee shedrow…it was *very* nice…
