It's 2:30 am and why am I up

Hi everyone, It is 2:30 in the morning and my pump is alarming it is out of insulin. I had already filled a new reservoir so this should be a non issue correct. I take out old reservoir and go to screw in new reservoir and the neck of the pump that holds the reservoir down cracks. This is not a minor crack mind you but one heck of a crack. I call the pump company at this time. Nice lady calls me back and says okay we need to send you a new pump. They call the delivery company which calls to tell me what time it would be arriving. So at 12:30 tommorow I will have a new pump in my gruppy paws. I am at 83 right now so am debating just laying down till about 4:30 am and checking then. Oh have I said this it is SO COOL that pump company can get me a pump that soon. If it had been longer I could have called the PA from endo's office who would have met me with a pump but this is quick enough for me. Oh, I think we may have decided on a name for Mr. Skunk. Vinnie dah Skunk seems to be his current name. My father is laughing at us for feeding him so well. Let's see he has had his own hamburger for the past 2 days and tonight had a hot dog. Actually he is starting to recognize us as the people who feed him so that is a good sign. Course my dog ate whatever was left of Vinnie's dog food today so she had 2 meals. She is gonna get majorly fat. Well, I had better lie down and get some rest tommorow is another day. I need to help mom make fruit salad for my brother's picnic and might be watching my grand niece tommorow afternoon. She is 1.5 years old.

A new addition

Well, It has been a long time since I have blogged. Well July has been a busy month for us. We had a birthday party for my one brother. He turned 50. The next night we had fireworks and ate up the left over food from the party for my brother. This worked our really well. We pretty much recupperated after that. We are now the owners of 10 hens. We were given 13 hens, but something ate 3 of them. A friend of ours put tin on the floor and the roof of the chicken coop and for about a week. Well since Sunday our number has stayed constant at 10. Unfortunately we have a rat or something eating the eggs on us. We are going to work on making it so the rat cannot get in the pen.
We also have a new little baby sheep goat. This one is so cute and sweet. I posted her picture here also. I am not 100% sure it is a girl but it does seem so. I forgot to look when I got to hold her. I got to hold it cause it actually came out of the fence the one day. I believe it thought the dog could have been the mommy. She was not. All the other animals are doing great. We have also added a new animal to our menagerie. Drumroll please. If you notice the first picture it is of a Skunk. That is the newest addition on the farm. We have not named him yet, but figured I would take suggestions from here. One friend has already suggested Fluffy. Other names we have thought about are Skunky, Stinky, Pepe, or Flower. All suggestions will be read and I will post back with the name of the skunk. He is just so cute and sweet. I want to be like Elvira and love him and hug him and squeeze him.
