    It's now chick days at TSC. I got out of chicken raising when something murdered them. I couldn't resist this weekend and got 10 pullets and 4 ducks. We only had one duck and he was lonely. I forgot how messy these little buggers are! I may regret this but having fresh eggs again will be nice. Once they get older and can go out in the chicken coop they will be less work. They are cute so that's a plus.

    The testing stress is setting in for us as well. Our admin has turned into more of a slave driver than normally. Her job is now being evaluated on test scores instead of just ours neither of which makes any sense but it is what it is... Trying to make it as painless for the kids and myself as possible but the push is on to cram as much info in their brains as possible before the testing ensues.

    Got to ride over the weekend- Yay! The house did not get clean but that is ok- the dirt is waiting patiently for me. :) Benny did great out on the trail even though he hasn't been ridden in a couple of months. The weather was great too. Yay! Hopefully we will have a repeat this weekend. I'd post a pic of our ride but I can't figure out how to do that :(

    Ya'll have a great rest of the week- it's all downhill from here!

    WOW, what a crazy 24 hours it's been! Last night my 5th grader started the whole vomiting thing that lasted about 6 hours. He got really good at it too, puked everywhere but in the bathroom. He missed the 5 the grade writing test today, so he will have to make that up. I spent today caring for him and cleaning out closets. We have been trying to move off and on for a few years now, and we got serious about it this month!

    We found a house that meets our needs, but is older than what we were looking for. It's in a neighborhood with a pool, tennis courts, athletic fields and a horse boarding facility. The house is about 30 years old, but completely updated..yay. We know we want to make an offer, but not sure what to do. Our neighbor really wants to rent to own our house, but I'm scared to carry 2 mortgages:( our realtor does have 2 people coming to look this weekend. It would be great if one of them made an offer, but I'm really torn. Our neighbor is so nice, and she's our school nurse too. If I could pick a family to move in, it would be them.....decisions, decisions. Hoping we make the right one!

    Well, who sent this cold snap down here? I was really enjoying these 60s and 70s we been blessed with. It's ok, I forgive you as we will be back up in the 70s this weekend and mostly sunny so that makes up for it.

    Hope everyone is having a wonderful morning and it continues throughout the day.

    Is there any way that you can bypass me and just go straight to Rick with that cold stuff next time?

    Just popping in during lunch. Our schools were closed, yet again, due to snow yesterday but administrators had to report at 10 so I enjoyed a nice, quiet, productive day and wore jeans to protest having to be here. I am such a rebel.

    Wanted to share this video I took on Tuesday. The horses you will see are all in, what we call, the old men field.

    Jerry is 36.
    Scuffy is 28
    Solo is 18 and then Sammy is the baby at 15.

    Old Jerry was full of himself that day and has been for several days. Taking off galloping across the field. Trying to play with the younger, more dominent geldings in the field next to his.

    I managed to capture a few seconds of the old guys playing, and the baby, Sammy, running to the safety of the gate area.

    Wait to you see the beautifully choreographed bucks that Jerry and Solo do.

    Solo is in the blue blanket. He is the one the rolls at Scuffy's feet at the end.
    Scuffy is in the burnt orange blanket. He was even playing a little bit and he usually only plays with my hubby. (Hubby leases him and Scuffy doesn't realize he is a horse)

    Jerry is the dark horse in the green blanket. I am so impressed with the air he got under his beautiful buck. All four feet off the ground. 36 years old!!!!

    Anyway...enjoy. Just shows you that age is only a number!

    Not nice...That is ok though as I'll be enjoying my t-shirt rides Saturday and Sunday while you are all bundled up in your winter attire..

    Now I need to borrow that dislike button you asked for on one of my posts a week or so back. Hahaha

    MIL is off tonight and DW and I have a movie date with a few other couples from church to see Son of God. So looks like Saturday afternoon I will be building the wall.

    Yearling we know who to blame for our weather; it's not Polar Vortex, it's Nicker Vortex. You're downright fickle in this area missy! 50 degrees then a temp drop of 20-30 degrees then snow then 50 degrees then freezing rain mixed with snow. Just give me a decent weather HorseMonday this Monday, wouldya girlfriend?!!?

    Ladona, I loved the video of the old guys playing! I'll have to watch it again.

    Kelli, good luck on your house decision.

    Two more work day-nights for me (Fri & Sat my weird shifts). My Hump Day today was okay, glad to be home.

    Need some magick horsebreath.
