Roaddy, good luck with the MIL....they sure can be stubborn! Even mothers can be....I kinda had to force mine to leave yesterday!!! Lol. DH and I really just wanted to be alone...and I really needed time back at the happy house to unwind by myself...I think I hurt her feelings for telling her to go...but right now, that part is all about me so I can take care of DH

Koolio, good luck with the hearing aids. This may open up a whole new world for you!!!

Also, Koolio, you are right....after winter solstic, Stan will begin to have the shorter days!!!! had to mention that since he likes to rub in the whole 'hot' factor!

Looking forward to seeing my troops when I get home. I can't imagine how dirty the stalls are..... Moms DH refuses to clean them for me.

Hoping to get some,rides I this break...the weather is warm now (50s) but rainy.....but...I don't melt...so I may have to gear up and go! Hahaha

Someone come run the tractor to clear out the land so I can go ride!!! Lol

2 more hours then off for the launch and food then off to the house for tractor work. Suppose to have rain moving in tomorrow so want to get as much done today as possible and maybe look at welding a protection cage on the tractor with some leftover 1 3/4" HREW pipe I have laying around. No more ducking out of the way of limbs and branches then lol

My mother just called and said she rented a mobile home up in Columbus, Ms that she was in when we moved her down here to stay with my brother and his ex-wife and their 2 kids. He too has since moved to Ga leaving me here alone. My cousin lives here and work at same company since I got him a job, but we work different hours and locations so hard to keep in touch.


Anyways, she is moving there from Slidell, La after the first and I was kinda hoping she would choose to move back here. I know she has sisters and a lot of friends there to keep her company so that is probably the best place for her to settle back down. It's another reason for me to go back for a visit since I have two daughters both with sons for me to visit also.

I know its the longest day tomorrow 22nd and we get it befor you get your shortest and I also know I tend to rub it in a little because we generally have horse riding weather all year round. Talking about riding I'm not doing any lately and I have also been told a number of my riding friends are also having troubles with the horses missbehaving. Due to the drought conditions settling back in and the lack of rain through the winter the only grass growing is rye and that is not good for horses. There is a trek on the 18th Jan and SWMBO let it slip last night she was riding a friends horse, that was untill I told her I'm going deer stalking with my son that weekend and will be using the truck. Just another hurdle to get over.

However I do intend to spend time with the horse over the next two weeks and get a ride in if I can calm him down enough.

Nickers sometimes one has to take a hard line with family. You did the right thing by insisting mother leave you two to it. Its a time for both of you to reconnect. What you both have been through is life changing and a lot of plans and dreams get changed, what was important yesterday now does not matter.

I went through a lot of changes in my thinking and what was important and what was not. But it settles down. Its been two years on the 22nd since I had my first heart attack. But no problems since the doctors did their thing back then. Tell you husband not to be in a hurry to get back to work, I did go back early and it was a mistake. It took me three months to get back fully.

Let us know how he is progressing.

Cheers all
Its another dry hot day and no I'm not sticking it to you its a problem when its to hot in NZ, we have a high rate of skin problems caused by to much exposure to the the sun. And it does effect the riding, one has to ride the forest all the time for the cool shade the trees provide.

Nicker- great news about your husband! It will be an extra special Christmas having him home, healthy.

Roadyy - glad your MIL will also be home and hopefully getting better for the holidays. I'm with Celeste on the cigarettes, and would make it very tough for her to get any while I'm around.

Stan - I hope you get some rain soon. I know how bad drought can be. A number of years ago we had such a severe drought that farmers were shooting their own cows in the fields so they didn't have to see them starve. A few even turned their guns on themselves they were so devastated.

Well, I made it through the last day. Its always a tough day because the kids expect parties, movies and candy and don't think they should have to learn anything. Of course it is our job as teachers to make sure they do continue learning. The ed assistants for one of my classes wanted to have a little party for the kids and told them to bring snacks. I agreed to some healthy snacks as long as the kids cleaned up and participated in the lesson. Bad idea.... I don't think 12 y.o. Boys are capable of choosing or consuming healthy snacks as one kid brought in a ton of pop and candy. I think one of the boys must have drank at least 3 litres of Pepsi in my class alone, and then I found out he drank at least 3 or 4 more bottles throughout the day. That was on top of a bag of popcorn and about a half pound of chocolate Christmas bark brought in by another assistant. Can we say WIRED! I spent the class trying to get the kids to stop wolfing down sugar. A little treat is OK, but I was shocked at how they inhaled everything in sight and with what their parents allowed them to bring to school. Needless to say, I'm ready for an evening of a quiet movie or maybe just plain quiet.

Oh Stanley, I just love ya!! Your right, this changes everything. DH and I had some 'alone time ' yesterday and got a good cry in. Both he and I just want to 'be' and he even mentioned that after thins maybe we should go somewhere warm to just be together....Stan can you help us with this?

I'm home. It was hard to leave, but I did. He had a bit of arrhythmia after his walk, which they say is normal....I'm 11/2 hours from the city, so I can zip down if need be.

Hoping everyone get a rode in soon...including me. good therapy!!

Got myself some Mexican for dinner and just chilled talking to all of you. Fells good to be in my own home. Although I go to the city often, I loath the traffic. Nice to be back in my small town!!

Talk soon,
