    I am in my 30s and still feel like twenty something year old horse wise..... anyone have parents into horses? I drive to the trainers and this year financial and opinion wose me and my mom usually have the same trainer.... this year she is branching into new disciplines.... As far as shows my mom accompanies me to shows and some times only I ride. My mom is my best friend.... but folks always go to her to talk about me and my horses or assume after years that I follow her. This is fine with me because it is hard to break history.... not being recognized a my own horse person some times makes me wonder. I have been flying on my own for a few years... yet people assume my Mom's influence. She is great and let's me fly! :) still lol been years I find it interesting...

    Anyone else have this happen? I might add yep I still respect and often go to my Mom I will be learning horse stuff every year we all do... growth...

    Drafty - any chance we can stick my MIL and Connie in a room together and never let them out again? Tell the cow to get a life.. argh!! I have to deal with a meddling MIL who has done us a bad turn more than once... and that Connie... ffs... I would love to tell her what I think of her actions - it wouldn't be pretty!

    I think I need to let you take over my job in the pub for a while Drafty - it's done me the world of good by giving me the personality to NOT TAKE CRAP from anybody. I refuse to take any abuse, I refuse to let people walk all over me and I have firmly put numerous people who intimated me back in their boxes. This kind of job, which is daunting at first where people sneer, disrespect and down right abuse you, gives a person such a backbone it's unreal.

    MHF - Love the name, and glad you got to enjoy such an experience!

    I've done my back in AGAIN :( I could feel it twinging over the last few days, I was getting pains from the right side of my lower back down to my knee :( Today I am snookered.... mucking out this morning was agony and I'm crocked in work.

    I'm preparing myself for the bedlam that is Christmas in the pub... preparing for 5 nights at job #2, and 3 days at job #1. HOrses are going to get to enjoy the pampered lifestyle of no working until after the new year.

    Ontop of my schedule, I've got relationship trouble.... it's keeping me awake at night and I'm struggling to know what to do with myself. Why are things never simple?

    So I did a little (well, not so little 2 ft x 2 ft) baking project to welcome my friend & baby Memphis home, Memphis is a boy, don't think I got back to answer that. Memphis Thomas.

    I burned my hand making dinner (flash steamed my thumb & half of my right hand, awesomeness ugh) so my project was a bit time consuming and painful. Cold pack on my hand, ice cake for a few minutes, cold pack, cake, lol.

    She decorated his nursery in owls, so I ran with it.

    Thanks ladies!

    Had the most amazing thing happen to me today. I guess I'm getting some good karma back. Went to walmart with the kiddo to get some stuff for my friend (same one that just brought home baby) and to let DD pick out a gift for DH & a few groceries. We were checking out and a service manager and a guy walk up behind us and he says "In the spirit of Christmas and paying it forward I'd like to pay for your purchases. I've been walking around for awhile trying to pick someone, I picked you because your daughter is so polite." He bought all of my friends stuff (80 bucks worth) and mine (over 200!). I am blown away and so insanely proud of my kiddo. So DD & I are going to pay it forward tonight, a friend of mine has had a rough patch and hasn't been able to get Christmas for her kiddos so we are taking her shopping and buying their Christmas gifts. Feeling so amazing right now!

    Love it! I was in the drive-through at Starbucks one time and the patron ahead of me paid for my drink. I was like "what do you mean somebody already paid for it?!?" lol

    Seriously the best day ever. Don't remember the last time I felt this great. We just got home from taking my friend shopping. It was fun, DD had a good time helping pick gifts for her daughter who is close in age and friend was super appreciative. She made me cry, told her that wasn't cool because she was killing my tough girl image. Lol.

    MHQuarterhorses,

    That is so amazing! You read about things like that, but hearing that it really happened to you is so coool! Like the mystery tipper, who leaves tips that are like 300% of the total for the restaurant meal.
