    Well technically my bf and I don't have a lot of time together. We don't go out on dates very often mostly due to cost. We live together and share expenses so we are basically married just don't have that official title. So life is busy and will get even busier once I go back to school.

    I do enjoy the times when he is gone though (don't tell him that). At first I wasn't so sure about his career and as much as he would be gone. But now I'm glad when I get to just hang out with my horse or my dog and watch what ever show I want to on tv and not do a thing.

    I had basically given up on dating when a mutual friend set us up on a blind date. And well from there on out I knew I would marry him someday...eventually.

    Haha don't feel bad about enjoying the time when he is gone. I do the same thing. I can get some of my own stuff done, and don't have to worry about what he is doing. Sometimes he goes away for "guy weekends" and I do a girl weekend. Its a blast for both of us, and a good refresher for our tolerance of one another

    As far as dates, don't get me started. I think I have been on about 5 traditional "dates" total in our entire relationship. We've never been to a movie, never to a fancy restaurant. We go fishing, or shooting, or hiking, or even to McDonald's drive through. It's not always exclusive either, we hang out with a lot of people. We don't have a lot of money, so we just enjoy being around each other without spending money. It's the little things.

    Hehe just finished an awesome nap that he never lets me take because he gets bored lol. Although its much to hot out to do much else. We have one 'fancy' restaurant we go to for our anniversary or birthdays and that's about it. We are trying to save money for a house and then a wedding so I'm not allowed to spend anything extra. It sucks but I hate apartment life.

    So who else never has money and has to refrain from buying all kinds of stuff for our animals? Only a few more years til I'm done with school so I can make more money.

    Ahh I know. My local feed store should offer a rewards program, seriously. I haven't bought anything for myself at all this year. My horse is literally eating all my money. And apparently I'm one of the few that pays the vet right away?! I don't like owing people money. But I'm pretty sure I spent less money at the mall then I do on my horse. Oops.

    Poppy - I understand the whole not having time together thing. It sucks a lot. Between two horses, a boy friend, a full time job and college I've got my plate more than full. ): We manage to make it work though and that's all that matters. Also, the whole $$$ thing, yeah. I have a tack hoarding problem. LOL. All my money goes to the same place.

    Sky - I feel the same I've been through almost 10 saddles now trying to find one that fits, I know this one fits don't want it to be a horrible choice though. Uhg, saddle fitting is a pain.

    Fai - Those tattoos are SO cute, do you have rings? Or are those in place of that?

    For the fourth I'm going to relax at the barn, fireworks are tonight here. At work now, off at 8 then going with my man. Should be a blast!
    This thread moves so fast I can barely keep up! (:

    Hm, can't seem to make the 'multiple quote' thing work. Anyway -

    Saranda - you guys sound awesome! I wish I could understand what you were singing!

    Annanoel - we do have rings too, we only got the tattoos this past year. We haven't worn them since getting the tattoos though! We're still deciding what to do with them - they're still very sentimental, maybe made into something else or just kept safe somewhere. They look kind of silly with the tattoos peeking out underneath them, and the tattoos just feel so much more suited to us.

    And I understand your saddle pain... I'm just in the process of sending one back and ordering something else. Unfortunately all the tack shops in my area are SADLY understocked and generally not very nice or helpful. So I order just about everything online. Can you try the Billy Cook saddle on your horse before committing?
