Hi all!

Busy day here, but good!

Ran to do chores, then to the school to put in a few hours, and raced to beat the Lowes guys with out new gas grill......when I arrived home the grill was on the porch!! raced home for nothing. Oh well.

Got stuff done here during the rainy afternoon. Ran back out to the school to do a bit more, then chores, a nice walk with mom, Maggie ( dog), and Rainn. We got to talking so I grabbed Jay and we let them eat the lush grass outside the pasture. It was a really nice evening.

Still baching it, so tonight's menu is chicken Alfredo!!! Yummy! ....and the dessert I didn't eat last night!

Koolio, ugh! The nightmares already???? I haven't started mine yet, but they are sure to come.....they always do...

Sorry to hear too you got ejected.....not fun.


Eole, welcome to a nice group of people!! Step right in!

While I was out tonight I took some updated photos of Jay. I'm going to attempt to post a pic from the day he arrived, and then tonight's.....wow!!! How he has changed in 7 weeks!!

Here we go....arrival day....

Hello Eole. Welcome.

Koolio. I am so sorry that you took a spill. Glad that's it's only really your pride that's hurt.

Nicker, he really looks great. Good job.


Excuse me all while I beat Stan. Yes you can click on them, but then you have to click off and click on them all. Ain't nobody got time for that.

Alex, I had been been waiting for your response to Stan!

Koolio, so sorry you came off today. I have only been riding since 2009 and I have come off twice. The first time I was bucked off a green horse. Totally overestimated my ability and attempted to mount a green horse that hadn't been ridden in over a year. (Long story)

The 2nd time was New Year's Eve 2011. Once again, riding a horse I had no business riding. He had been standing in a field for years but was well trained in the past. He bucked me off and I ended up with cracked ribs that still hurt when the weather changes.

It was because of that 2nd unplanned dismount that I ended up with Isabella. She can be a tempermental old gal but she doesn't have any kick, buck, or bolt, or rear in her. Her spooks result in taking 3 or 4 steps forward and then stopping. That being said, I am still scared of coming off again and know it could happen any given day.

Koolio and Nicker, our teachers report back on Monday!

Nicker, he looks great!

Eole, welcome!

It was too hot to ride today. 97 and high humidty so I just went out and spent some time with my girl. Hubby took a picture.

I find it amusing, like the bug that never stops landing on you, that you swat away all the time. I also imagine an old man smiling at the other side of the screen. I think he kinda likes my grief, as he certainly keeps doing enough to cause it.
I do love the senile old fool really.

My BO is the same way. He's in his 50ish. Every time he passes me he shoves me, I weigh 120lbs ish, he is 300lbs at least. I go flying. But the second I give him some crap, he gets this dopy looking grin on his face. He likes it, and that's why I get shoved. I just wish he'd be a bit more gentle about it, rather than getting knocked into next week each time.

Stan's the same way, he secretly loves it. Rick, well he's younger, and you know it takes a lifetime to make men behave, he's not there yet.

Corgi, you are gorgeous.

So I have a new case manager, she would appear to be a moron. She became my case worker on Weds of this week, and emailed Weds night - she just has to come out the next day.

I tell her I have plans Thurs, can she do Fri instead (they don't like to work a Fri). She asks what plans I have - EXCUSE ME.
My plans are two kids are at football til 11, then have to be at the office at noon, then there til 7ish.

She asks why she can't come out 11-12. Because I don't have a teleport machine. They get home 11.30, and then we leave for the office, as it's 30 mins away.

She texts, she is going to come Fri. I text back, fine, what time, she doesn't know. So I suppose I should just wait for her all day.
She emails, she is going to come next Thurs 7.30pm. Ok so now there is no panic, when there was panic before. She says she's really busy and hopes I understand. I don't care.

Today I get an email, she's going to come Mon at 7.30pm or Tues at 11.30. Erm, I have said three times now two kids have football camp 7am-7pm, that's we are talking about 7.30pm visits.

"Alex- Thanks so much for the response. Lets plan on Mon at 7:30pm-cause ALL kids will be there.*I just ask that they "DO NOT KNOW" I'm coming so I can get the "full affect" :)"

What full affect? Are you Batman? If you are going to come in and feel a need to prove yourself and get the kids all worked up for no reason, then I am going to sit back and you are going to stay until you have calmed them down. I'd bet I could calm them down in 15 mins, but she seems to have all the answers, so I will sit back and watch. She will be here til 10 at least.

I've never met the chick, but I am not impressed so far.
