First of all, Critter, that is one adorable puppy! Congrats on the new addition. How is your daughter doing?
I am back home. Leaving Mom down in what I consider the armpit of Virginia was tough. I need to get her up this way. My Aunt and Uncle are looking at apartments near them in MD. She enjoys spending time with them and they would provide her with lots of activities to keep her busy.
When I went to see Isabella yesterday, she was a little standoffish but once I got her under saddle, we had a nice solo trail ride.
Today was the charity show. It was cloudy out but the rain held off. We won first place in pony express (my partner and I had a time of 17 seconds flat), key hole, and simon says. Isabella won Simon says by cantering from a dead stop. Wohoo!
Our barrel run was interesting. We missed the first barrel! LOL. If you watch the video below, you will hear my very undignified and very uncowgirl like scream of surprise when we missed it.
But we had a blast!
I am a little worried that I pushed her too hard today. Really scared she will be sore and lame tomorrow..but I know that most of my worrying is displaced. I am worried about Mom and still mourning my Dad and worrying about Izzy gives me something different to fret about.
I am trying to get my eating habits back on track. While in Southern, Va, I was basically living on Ho-Ho's and wine. Dropped 5 pounds...the grief diet...i don't recommend it. I need to lose about 20 pounds but that is not the way to do it. Today was the first day that I have had 3 healthy meals in a long time. I think that has a lot to do with feeling a little better.
Anyway, here is a pic from today and a video!
