HappyPlace - I hope you find some rejuvenation this weekend and enjoy the time with your son and your husband.
Nicker - are you doing OK? I'm thinking about you and your dog today...
Tjtalon - have you had your shift change yet? I think you mentioned it would be soon. I used the Dell tablets with my kids at school last week. They seem to work OK, but not as easy as the ipad. I also have a Chromebook from work that I like quite a bit better because I like having a real keyboard. The downside, is everything you do is online. The Chromebook is pretty useless without an internet connection. Not sure about the Dell tablet, but I think you can do some basic word processing, etc offline.
Roadyy - the new place for the horses looks fantastic! Nice to see your daughter riding too. It looks like she is doing great.
I went to the horse show today and am so glad I didn't take Koolio. The show was fun to watch, but we had snow, rain, sleet and even a bit of hail. It was dreadfully cold! The classes were very large (20-25) and each had some pretty excited horses. I think I will look for some smaller barn shows to get back into it.
Tomorrow the kids and I will make our annual visit to the greenhouse to look t's plants. It is way too cold to buy right now, but we can still plan and make a wish list for when the weather gets better. The greenhouse also has a lovely coffee shop with some fantastic homemade snacks. Afterwards, DD and I will get a ride in. It should be a good day!
