It is either busy as hell or nothing to do. Okay... I could find something to do - dishes, laundry, trying to get some of this animal hair off the floor...the couch...the rug. But it is one of those days and I have kinda spent it flitting around to various blogs. There are some really interesting people out there. So much fun to see what people do in other parts of the country. And, I couldn't resist sticking my two cents in on several of them.
So I sit here stuffing my face with my mom's 3-layer, white chocolate, banana cake with cream cheese frosting and contemplate that Megan's track practice will start in 3 weeks. I promised I would start walking and jogging with her so she is prepared for practice. As stuffed as I am - that don't sound like fun. But then again, my pants are getting a little tight. What can I say - it has been a long winter...I love to cook...and not too long ago I was complaining that I really needed to gain a couple of pounds.
I know comments like that can start a diatribe about how other people wished they had that problem. But really it sucks loosing too much weight. You are tired, you lose strength and certain body parts, that my honey really likes, disappear. Funny how when I gain those few extra pounds in the winter that it never goes where I want it to. So I guess I will bite the bullet next week and Meg and I will start jogging(walking!!).
This is Okie. She is such a beauty. She was born with one hind leg turned out and shorter than the other. You only noticed it at the long trot until a couple of years ago. Megan and I both rode her. I started her on barrels and poles and had she been normal, I think she would have been very good. But that hurt. So Megan tried to show her in 4-H for a year. She was just too sensitive to cues and as light as Megan tried to be, they just couldn't get together. I am torn as to breed her and hope the abnormality she has was due to a mineral deficiency or to put her to sleep. She is not suitable for most kids and too crippled for an adult to ride. What does a person do?
