Ugh kc .. kids. And the more you protest, the more she will insist. It'll work out or it won't .. and then she'll be back.

*hugs*

PS .. I might move to Colorado too, if I had the opportunity ....

I'd totally move to Colorado, if the opportunity was there! Hope your daughter figures things out quickly, though, KC. How exciting about another vet date!

Thanks tg! We almost did move there years ago but the job Michael had lined up fell through because they wanted him to live in Breckenridge and we knew that was not going to happen. We told her we couldnt stop her and reminded her of the expenses she would be responsible for with no real job. Not to mention she would be reliant upon a person that didn't even have a job and couldn't take care of herself or kids.

Let's all move to Colorado... during the summer, then Texas spring and fall! (well and winter if we ever get one)

KC, been there done that. DD took off to Mississippi to stay with a guy she met on the internet for a few months to "visit" I did everything I could to get her to stay. Tried to do background checks on him, etc. My dad who is an ex-cop, called the sherriff's office down there, said "this is Officer Noel..." they looked him up, didn't find anything on him... no record.... but anyway. She flew down stayed. I made a surprise visit on them. We have friends an hour south of where she was, that I stayed with a week, and visited DD. He, of course was a deadbeat, living off parents. She finally came home, in one piece. Scariest time of my life.
At least your DD is going with someone she knows!
Good luck!

We're going to Schlitterbahn this weekend. Water parks hold absolutely no appeal to me, but it's an annual excursion with Fiance's family and my son is over the moon excited. That said, I was given "permission" to look for nearby tack shops, lol. Anyone familiar with the area? We've rented a house in San Antonio 78218.

We were in Creede Colorado for vacation a few years ago. Second week of June, frost on the motorcycle, hail as we rode over one pass, stopped to play in the snow an another pass... Hot in the valleys.. Awesome.

Cyn, that sounds like fun'

Tg, dh's brother lived there for several years and we visited multiple times, spent at least 2 christmas' there, one was at Grand Lake, Winter Park and even cut down Christmas trees. We absolutely loved it. Told her I understand why she would want to live there but this was crazy, so to speak. I know it will work out but it doesn't make it any easier.

OMG .. so cute. I'm watching AQHYA show, and the girls were in the lineup for the jumper class when Y.M.C.A. Came on the radio. They started "dancing" on their horses, the camera zoomed in on two of them, the announcer turned up the music and waited for the song to end so the girls could sing and "dance" in the lineup. Everyone was cracking up ... how fun.

Some things just need to be learned on our own. No matter how much you want those things learned by being told...

DH and I are planning on doing annual summer trips to Colorado (for my birthday and to get out of the heat) so hey, we could all go up there together. Maybe even bring our horses along (there are cabins where you can bring horses) and all trail ride through the mountains together. Now that would be a meet-up! :)
