Four Things, Why Not?

I want to do this with my Bacon
Well, tomorrow is the big day for Bacon. Hopefully we can get to the bottom of whatever is going on with my goofy girl.  I just want her to be comfortable and happy again. She still seems fine and happy, plays in her pasture and weaves vigorously like always. It is hard when all you look forward to is riding and competing on your pony, and a lot of that did not happen this summer. But all I really want is for her to be ok again. So, to keep my mind busy, here is the four things filler post!

Four names that people call me other than my real name: 

  1. Lergies/and or Penguin (from racehorse trainer-in reference to my allergies and my arthritis walk)
  2. Boogs (my grandpa called me this when I was a baby, and stuck in my family)
  3. Crazy Ass (thanks husband)
  4. Poo (my maiden name was Lapuh. Said like La-poo)
This was Dr. Boo. He was 32lbs. Please do not let your cat get this fat.
Four jobs I’ve had: 
  1. Stall cleaner
  2. KB Toys associate (NEVER AGAIN)
  3. Veterinary Assistant/Cat Wrangler
  4. Lyme Battler (not a real job, but some days it feels like it)

    Onward to PIE!!!

    2. House M.D. 
    3. Friends. This show makes me happy when I am blue.
    4. Dexter
    Four things I’m looking forward to this year:
    1. Thanksgiving. Hopefully I will feel well enough to eat all of the food.
    2. Halloween Jump Night. Even if I won't be able to ride, I still get to dress up.
    3. Christmas.
    4. Idaho Eventing and Dressage Association's banquet night. Last year I won all kinds of prizes and sat next to the dessert table.
    Four things I’m always saying:
    2. NO. (Usually in reference to the goaties).

    4. For no one to feel sadness.
    My girls


    1. Great post!
      I am glad you included coffee in the "nope" list.

    2. Yay cool whip!

      This reminds me. We should have pie together, as I also enjoy an inordinate amount of whip.

    3. Now I know where pie came from, I also love cool whip! "For no one to feel sadness" making blogland feel profound.

    4. Tried to sneak in snake and tarantulas there! Hahaha. That cat is huge! Definitely beats the biggest that has come into my work. I wish you and Bacon BOTH be well soon. Fingers crossed for jump night jumping!

    5. I can't wait for Christmas too!!

    6. Sitting next to the dessert table at any event is totally clutch.

    7. fingers crossed for Ms Bacon - hope everything goes well!! also my sister is a total nut about cool whip from the canister lol. it never did it for me, but i guess i can see the appeal?

    8. Great post! Fingers crossed for Bacon!

    9. Hooooow did I forget about Nightmare Before Christmas?!?!?!
