Okay, I think I got things sorted out with the layout. The header is kind of cobbled together, but I'm no expert with Paint Shop Pro. I was learning about layers as I went, learned how to make a transparent gif, all that kind of stuff. :)
Also ... Apollo is now officially my horse! :) I paid for him and got his registration papers and whatnot yesterday. Hooray!
We also chucked him out to pasture last night. I think he'll be in pasture for a month or so, until it gets to be dark right after work, and then we'll move him to a pen with a nice run. I just don't think it's terribly safe to catch horses in the dark, especially when there are other horses in the pasture with the one you want to catch. *shrug* I get some flak for this, but I have my flak jacket on when it comes to this, to wearing my helmet, and to wearing closed toe shoes around horses. My choices for safety, my prerogative.
ANYway ... I also have a fly sheet waiting for my thin-skinned guy. So I'm really wanting to get out to the barn this evening to check him out, make sure he doesn't have any pasture injuries, and get the fly sheet on him. There's no chance of me being able to ride tonight, unfortunately. :/ I think I might be doing too much, honestly. After yesterday (getting to work early, running out to get/cash check for my truck, running out to the barn to meet Apollo's seller, turning him out and cleaning his stall, then going to ME's and doing evening chores plus some extras), I was pretty tired and slept through all of my alarms this morning. So I have a few options:
* Work my full 8 hours at a stretch, leave here at 6, go straight to ME's for chores, get home around 8, walk dogs, eat, crash.
* Work until 5, run to the barn, grab Apollo and check him over/fly sheet him, run to ME's for chores, get home around 8:30-8:45, maybe eat, work another hour or hour and a half, crash.
Hm, I can't remember the third option. Gah. I really want to get the fly sheet on Apollo, so I am going with option 2. My dogs are the ones suffering here. This bugs me no end. Maybe I can grab them and take them to the barn to play with their sisters and brothers while I do stuff.
What I really need to to is make it so I don't need 8-10 hours of sleep. If I could do with 6 hours a night, I could get so much more done.
