So....I have been doing quite well so far this year. Really good yesterday until late in the day when Maggie bit me. On the arm. Through a very thick furry coat. Did I mention haw very thick it was? Hurt bad enough that it made me cry. I had an immediate lump and bruise. Also a scrape. I yelled out, "BITCH" and took her inside. I had been playing with her. I am so kind to her.
See! She came in here and just chewed on my hand. I put her right in her cage telling her NO BITING!!!!! When I woke up this morning I was still pissed that I didn't even greet her. She tried her best to get me to acknowledge her. Then I could see she was confused and sad. She gets it but hasn't connected it with biting yet. She'll figure it out because I am sticking to this plan.
Then today we have rain.
And add to that the fact that the government did or didn't pass some law. The results being that a good portion of the traveling wind farm workers are being let go. That includes my son-in-law. He finally got this good job right before they were evicted. That was in August. My daughter says they will know in about 2 weeks but it is a 99.9% sure to happen. My daughter is so sick of this. They do everything right, work hard and the government just keeps pushing them down further and further. Makes me sick and I am so worried about her mental health and that of her kids. The middle child (Nate) will be OK. He rolls with the punches but if this happens year after year after year? I fear it will get him too. Please say a prayer. A big prayer.
