Sad News

My friends baby mini horse didn't make it. He colicked - this can be for a variety of reasons, but it turns out that his intestines were twisted.
He was only about 5 months old.
So sad.

Orientation, but not the kind you might think

Quick update: Yes, still losing weight. s l o w l y. Did I mention SLOW? S L O W. But it is happening. S L O W L Y.

Now onto bigger and better things:

Do you read It is freaking hysterical, written by someone I actually know. She used to make wooden toys, I have several of them. Her name is Amber. Now she has a book deal.
She wrote this very funny post recently about McDonalds, but that has nothing to do with this story. During her anecdote, she mentioned toilet paper orientation. I was curious, as I'm not particulary concerned with toilet paper orientation.
Ah Ha! It has to do with the toilet paper appearing at the top, or at the bottom of the roll. Something that is very important to my husband. I couldn't care less.
But - did you know that there is also Paper Towel Orientation?? Our paper towel holder stands on the counter. So the paper towel stands up. If that makes sense.
(I hate paper towels, and use them rarely. I prefer to use cotton towels, which are truly rags, because Buster (big dog) pulls them off the counter and munches on them, until I discover him. Then I wash it and put the ragged towels to good use, again. Until he eats them again. But I digress.
I was recently chastised by my husband, for putting the paper towel roll on backwards. I'm still not sure which way it is supposed to go. So, if it is empty, I leave it standing there. Naked.

Just saying.
