Neighbors and fences

So yesterday I had a visit from a Sheriff deputy. Fun. Seems my horse was out again. He said they have received numerous calls and visits to us because of it. What BS. He flat out lied. I called him out on the lie. We have received 1 visit because of horse.  He said they were called because horse was in road. Really? Looked like she was in the yard to me. So he left and we got a visit from animal control and he gave us a ticket for animal at large, which he did not see because horse was in yard. Could not figure out why she was getting out so I did a little fence walking. I will post a picture later on as I did not have my camera with me. Apparently my neighbor decided to cut some brush and trees and use a bulldozer to push it through our fence unto our property effectively taking our fence out in 2 places. I was going to just pay the fine, the horse was out. I have since changed my mind. I will go to court with pictures showing that it was vandalism that resulted in horse being out. The neighbor that did the damage is most likely the one that called the sheriff and filed a false report of animal in road. This is also the SAME neighbor that shot and killed 5 week old puppies that went on his property and shot the mother in the head(which she survived).

Karma needs to hurry up and take care of him. The devil watches his own I guess.

Second Day of New Year(where did the first one go??)

Today is the second day of the year 2017 in the month of January. Interesting fact: January is named after the Latin word for door not Janus. So January is in fact the door to the new year. Works for me. January is the door to 2017. 

I did not make any resolutions for this year. Why make something that is sure to be broken? Lose weight, go to gym, be nice, make amends, clean house, eat healthy, quit smoking, quit drinking, go to church, donate stuff, donate time, save money, etc. Resolutions won't do these things for you. Just because the first of the year rolled around and you decided now is the time to do all those things does not mean it will happen.

Today, my husband is cancer free. This last year has taught me that nothing in life is going to magically be fixed because I resolved it so. It was a hard battle and it is not over. It is a war, a continuous war until the day it is over. There will be more battles, more doctors, more drugs, more surgeries until it is over, the day he decides not to fight anymore.

I have realized that I have to start taking better care of myself because my husband is cancer free today and I have a great-grandson coming this year. I have things I enjoy doing: being with my family, my animals, riding my motorcycle, being with my friends, playing pool with my teammates, working. Was this a resolution? No. It was a realization.

I think I will now settle back and have myself another cup of hot tea.
