a friday that behaved like a monday

25/10.2012 - daily drive

it was a friday that was like a monday. everything ran 15 minutes behind. the horse's minor scratch turned into a strange hole in her leg that warranted 3 stitches and a course of antibiotics and we have no idea what did it. and when it started yesterday, there was definitely not a hole, tho' i somehow feel like a neglectful parent not to have noticed it, even after soaking her leg in a bucket of warm, soapy water and wiping it down with a soft cloth.  i just thought she had scraped a bit of hair off and was being a drama queen. she's given to that at times.

i also had to go to bilka, which is the closest you get to walmart in denmark. it wasn't pleasant. i nearly lost my will to live. nothing is where you think it will be, everything comes in the wrong size and any employee you can locate for help is already talking on some weird retro walkie talkie thingie and ignores you. i never did find the hamburger buns, since apparently they're not kept near other bread in bilka's brand of logic.  never did find marshmallows either. and the balloons they had completely sucked.

the weather's turned cold. molly loves to be outside, but was surprised by the frost on the grass this morning and when she came in, she snuggled on my lap for an hour to warm her feet. that was a real highlight of the day.

the team in india that's building the website i'm writing totally dropped the ball this week - there was apparently a festival. and tho' it was beyond my control, it makes me feel like i failed and let down my client. that isn't a good feeling. 

we're hosting our 5th annual halloween party tomorrow night. last year we bought a trampoline. this year, i went and got a bb gun. as one does. that bit of today went right. but i suppose it could go oh-so-wrong tomorrow when we turn the children loose with it.

i don't know about you, but i think it's time for a glass of wine.
