Well...Max got a visit from the vet yesterday - he wasn't too happy. :S
It was......interesting, to say the least. The girl who came has been out here several times, so we know her pretty well. She didn't bring an assistant, so guess what? She asked ME to help. 0.0 Lovely. Right in on the action. :P She gave him an injection to make him drunk first, and then gave him another one to knock him out. (Which worked, might I add!) She put a towel over his eyes, and, well...I won't go into the rest. :) Needless to say, it was pretty gross! Oh well...FARM LIFE! So, I got to help. (Only a little, though - THANKFULLY!) Dad and Nathan stayed to the sidelines, of course, so it was just me and her....and the knocked out horse that was making pitiful, and I do mean, PITIFUL, noises. (My poor Max!)
It was actually pretty funny after she had left, and mom had come up to the barn. Max was up and about, and so I went to meet them at the gate; from a distance mom goes,
"Are your hands red?"
I wave both bloody, sticky hands at her, grinning.
She responds with a heart-felt "GROSS!", while I laugh. I know, I know...I'm totally and absolutely weird!
At any rate, he's up and about today - I'm sure he's not feeling top of the world, yet, (how would YOU feel!?) but he is running around and acting like himself. Good ol' Macomy Dee! (His nickname, for your info...)
So...not much else. This afternoon, mom and I are going downtown, and I'm gonna get my first pedicure! Okay, so it's not a big deal...but it's something new, and besides, it's good to have nice feet! ^.^
Getting ready for the Father/Daughter next week...as well as three days before that, babysitting. My week will be PACKED. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, babysitting ALL day - Thursday through following Monday, Retreat. Yikes...
On a random note: on the way to GA, I'm hoping dad and I can stop at a Baskin Robbins! I've never been to one before - that'd be COOOOOL! =D (Sorry, I'm HYPER!)
Anyway, tootle-pip, chaps! I'll catch up with you later!
P.S. If you go to my YouTube channel by clicking on the slideshow I made, please leave a comment - I'd love to hear from you! And don't forget - PRAY!

Yes! Another do! I decided to be horrible and do something "unknown" with it RIGHT before the Father/Daughter Retreat! 0.0 (That's me, for ya!)
Anyway, here it is. I like it...though I think I'll like it better tomorrow when I can really play with it!
By the way, if you guys could pray for me, that'd be great; I'm going to be babysitting ALL. DAY. for a woman who just had surgery for three days - she has three little children. So...it'll be a test of nerves for me. :)
Please do, if you will!
And PLEASE, don't forget to pray for the people in Japan...

Please, please be praying for these people. This is absolutely horrible...but we know that it's the Lord's doing, and He did it for a purpose...perhaps to bring many to Him and send a wake-up call to Japan.
Please stay updated on this as much as you possibly can, and send in donations wherever possible. Fox News has a "How to Help" article, and you can go there to donate to different organizations.
I want to be over there helping so bad, it's about to drive me crazy - but I can't. Just like lots of you can't. The most we can do is pray HARD, donate, and see if we can get more people in on this. I've started a "Prayer Chain: Japan" - Please subject your e-mails under that title and send them out fast and thick.
This is all in God's hands....He knows what He's doing, though it's so hard for us to understand.
