    CC I rode my mare in the arena early this morning. There was a nice wind blowing. She is still not at 100% on that right rear leg, we've been working on it about a week now. Put her in the round pen after riding and forced her to lope clockwise. She didn't want to and bucked out at first but once she got going she looked a lot smoother than last weekend. There's a trail ride I really want to do in a couple weeks. Also worked with Eli and he did great.

    Funny the place where I board now is owned by a family with four kids and one on the way :) Usually Sunday mornings are quiet but not today. Two of the kids got new skates and had to come out to the barn to show me. They turned on the radio and were having a contest to see who could wipe out the craziest trying to skate on the dirt floor. Then we all starting singing the whistle song that came on the radio ... fun times.

    Been running errands all afternoon and now I'm fighting a nap because I really need to sleep all night... tomorrow's an exciting day!

    Round bale out with the horses. One less thing to worry about next week. My stress level has been climbing and DH picks this evening to pick a big ol' fight about my daughter. IT.GOT.UGLY... and personal.

    If my swollen red face looks anything like this tomorrow, I'll make quite an impression on my first day of orientation. Worse yet, I really don't give a crap.

    Nice way to start, huh? I'm terrified that before I get home in the evenings that they are going to get into it. I don't need this ... not this week.

    TG, when it rains, it pours. The good news is that means once you make it through you should have peace for a while. Hopefully they can get their act together for you. Otherwise you can always use some horse training tactics to get them in line ;)

    TG prayers going up for you and your family. Stress can really make a mess out of things, right?

    Awwww TG I'm sorry to know you had a rough day evening. I hope y'all can work things out.

    Texasgal sounds like you need a hug.
    Those two need to work out their problems and without involving you.
    Sit both of them down and tell them what YOU need and expect from them.
    Use the word I, when discussing the problem that takes the anger out of the situation .
    I need the two of you to resolve this
    I am tired of being dragged into this I am stressed out because of the new job
    Get the picture, or do I need to drive down and facilitate a family session. ON the House of course.
    The two of them are probably competing for your attention and subliminally know this is the best way to get it. Shalom

    Happy Monday and first day of school everyone! I'm so tired I could sleep for a week. .....
    Too bad that's nit going to happen. It will probably be busy again this week and hopefully calm down next week.

    Tg, I know how you feel, dh and I got into it several times over our oldest and it was never pretty. I'm afraid there's more to come too, especially since she's in Colorado.

    I'm sorry TG *hugs*.

    Happy Monday y'all! I finally got a chance to ride again last night, and it was a lot of fun. Right afterwards, I had a dog walking job. I'm probably going to be a bit sore later, I'm such a wimp .

    School week begins! I get two half days to myself this week...not much, but I'll take it!

    Now I can FINALLY plan a trip out to that new place I found north of here that is set up for trail riding.....and actually GO. I feel like I've been a prisoner waiting for that perfect moment to make my escape...
