My poor old Ripley continues to be sick. I wrote to Faye Whitney and Kat Smith and both wrote back with suggestions. I also got a very long, very helpful e-mail from Nadine Chounet and I'm trying everything to pull him through. On Friday I was at my class at Marlboro College and called my Vet Shephen. He said to give Ripley 2 c.c. of Penicillin for 4 days. I've also given him 1.5 cc of Vit. B-complex. This morning for the very first time in one and a half weeks, he pawed through the hay and picked up three tiny,tiny little pieces of hay. He pushes the grain around and lays his head on the feeder and its ripping my heart out to watch this. The more he doesn't eat, the more I do eat, so if he can make it through this I should be able to wear my husband Jonathan's clothes!!!!!!!!!
I've managed to clean a lot here at the house today and that is a major undertaking! There is just so much to do and not enough time to do it. Or else by the time I get home in the evening, I'm too tired to do what needs to be done! Darcy took Rowan and Declan out to lunch and to the Movies because Todd worked today. I've been out taking pictures of how much snow we have and all the out buildings because I am fretting myself silly about the weight of snow on everything! I guess I might as well stop worrying because nobody else seems to care!
I'm taking a 10 week class through Marlboro College for Non-profit Management. This is to help with my new job as Executive Director of the Tasha Tudor Museum. It was extremely hard for me to walk into that first class, wondering if this old brain could still absorb knowledge!!!!! My class on Friday was a really good class and I learned so much about fund raising. This Wed. we are having a Valentine lunch at work and Amy will be able to sit down with me to brainstorm about all the projects for the Museum. I just love this new direction my career is moving in. I have loved being a nurse and will continue to do it part-time, but I truly love Museum work.
Well I'm going to add some pictures, one of poor old Ripley and several of the snow. Hope everyone is doing o.k. and don't shovel any snow.......it will melt sometime!
So-long from Maybelle MaMa
