    Default Why do I need a vacation from vacation?

    Just took 2 days off work and went down to visit my Dad on the beach for Sunday-Monday. I got back and everything had gone wrong!!

    My pony that has seizures in the heat was turned out in 97 degrees. My founder pony was not properly medicated and is so uncomfortable she can hardly walk. One of our trail ponies impaled herself on something and has 2 dozen stitches and a drain on her shoulder. To top it all off, the AC in my truck died while I was gone and I had to get $3k of dental work this morning.

    Can I go back to the beach now??

    I wouldn't wish all of those things on my enemy. Hope things get better soon.
    Oh, well, clearly you're not thoroughly indoctrinated to COTH yet, because finger pointing and drawing conclusions are the cornerstones of this great online community. (Tidy Rabbit)

    I had a crappy day back, too, despite doing almost nothing over the weekend. Just had my 3rd cup of coffee, am still working, and it's 8pm.

    I hope your ponies are okay, and that you get some good karma your way soon. Sounds like you deserve it.
    Here today, gone tomorrow...

    Ponies are all hanging in there. Seizure mare luckily came through it fine. Founder pony is back on her meds and MUCH more comfy. Impaled pony is stable and PISSED that she's inside.

    Luckily the truck was a quick and cheap fix after all that $$$ I spent on my damn teeth! They hurt, really pretty badly too. They said "oh you won't need meds, it'll just be sore". They lied, it hurts like a bitch. I'm calling first thing am to get me some drugs!
