Had an amazing birthday this weekend. My family drove up from Georgetown with my aunt and uncle from Germany in tow. I never dreamed I would be able to share my little place in Trenton TX with them one day. They absolutely loved everything. The horses, our hay equipment, our home made smoker (hubby smoked brisket), the chickens, our shop filled with dead vehicles, everything. They were just fascinated since this is something they just never experience. Then my mom hands me my birthday gift yesterday. It came in a 32in Sony flatscreen TV box and as soon as she hands it to me, she appologizes and says, please don't be disappointed. It's not a TV. I open it and pull out a beautiful leather headstall, reins, a saddle pad, polowraps, a really nice hay bag, new halter and leadline, and a giant bottle of Leather New. I said "are you kidding me???? This is so much better than a Sony TV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" She cracked up. So yes, even a 40 year old can get excited over a very thoughtful birthday gift. I mean, how many of us watch TV when we're out on our horses anyway?!!! ;) Great weekend. :)
