    Yep, I'm nervous. I'm leaving for Denton, Texas on the 18th, I'm leaving all of my animals behind to be taken care of by my family. I'll be gone for 10 days. This will also the first ACTUAL vacation I've even ever been on! I'm going to be so worried about all of my babies I don't even know if I'll be able to enjoy it! I'm going with my best friend and her family. I'll constantly be calling home for daily updates. I also don't think I'll have any internet access. Now what all should I put on the emergency list for my family for the goats? lol Can you say paranoid? :wink:

    Make sure there is the number for the vet in case of emergency and a number for someone who can come over to help if there is a need. Also the number for the owner of the place where you are boarding them at each place.

    Luckily we use the same vet for the goats and all the other animals so that's covered, hhhmmmm, someone who can come and help. The only person I can think of that's even close is Bethany or my boss! I'll ask Bethany if she minds my parents having her number to call in case of emergency, they already have my boss's number. Thanks Stacey!

    Man, I know what you mean! I am always paranoid when I leave my animals...no matter what I try to do to distract myself, they are always in the back of my mind.

    It's awesome that you get to go on vacation though--sounds like you are long overdue! Hope you have fun! :)
