It wasn't to bad when I got up this morning, but it didn't take long and the snow was falling. By the time Chris called from the doctor's office, I couldn't see the neighbor's house. And it didn't quit.... By this evening we had accumulated 4 inches. They even let school out early.
When Megan got home she went out and got some pictures of the horses. She is the photographer in this family. Chris takes good pictures too. I suck at it. I am so thankful for the digital camera Chris got Megan. You cannot believe how much money it has saved me in developing film. Thanks mom, I am going to blame that genetic defect on you....
(It is going to take me a little bit on how to stick pictures in here where I want them). The black horse is Rip (actually he is blue roan - he just gets black in the winter). He is Megan's project. We call him the "SPED" horse.
The dun is Moon. My AZ friends will remember him. I made the mistake of lending him out last summer and he pulled a stifle muscle. I also have to do a major overhaul on his barrel pattern again. That will teach me to feel sorry for people. It cost me an entire year and now I have to fix problems that weren't there before.
Oh you guys will love this -- I had some blood work done last week. Been having problems with crashing blood sugar (I thought) and on a weird hunch I had them run another test too... guess what?
drum roll please..... I have Valley Fever!! I know - I left AZ 1 1/2 years ago and NOW I have Valley Fever? What the heck is up with that? So in for more blood tests on Wednesday and some chest x-rays. What was my tip-off to ask them to run that test? My elbows. Last fall my elbows started hurting and haven't stopped. At first I just thought it was arthritis, but when it never, ever stopped hurting and I could feel it in other joints too - I thought it resembled my dog when he got it.
So anyway - stay tuned. No one up here has even heard of it, much less had to treat it. Ought to be interesting.......
