Okay, I cannot keep a secret any longer...I'm packing!
I'm so excited and very sad at the same time.
The BrownEyed Cowgirlsssss is going to become the BrownEyed Cowgirl. Singular!
The time has come that it is absolutely necessary for me to move to Colorado and help My Honey. I have been planning to anyway, but have been pushing back the time due to obligations I felt I had here.
After much discussion and thought, fights and persuasion...Megan has decided that she wants to stay here and go to school.
I really can't blame the kid. She likes it here. This little town is slow-moving, easy-going and she fits right in with everyone else.
Have no worries. She will be living with my mom. I figured she might be just a tad young to leave on her own.;-)
I don't know how long it will last. Grandma is way more easy going in some aspects, not so easy going in others. And not nearly as likely to load up and head off on an adventure.
This is tough. The last few days I have felt rather torn in two. It's been Megan and I for a long time now. We usually have a blast together. Don't know what I'm going to do without my little mini me. My riding partner. My jamming sista. The pain in my butt sometimes. Chris is disappointed that she is not coming with me too.
Obviously, if she decides that the new arrangement is not working, all she has to do is call and I will come get her in a heartbeat. We tried to explain that the school she would attend out in Colorado is a very good school. She does have friends there already too. But so far it is a no go. She is adament that she wants to stay.
So next week sometime...I still have to get Coggins, brand inspections and health certs on my horses...me, my boys(the dogs) and 3 horses will be loading up and heading over the mountains.
I will be leaving the wide open prairie, no particular schedule and the luxury of having my horses in the backyard... and heading to-My Honey's daily company, a job in our business office and horses boarded up the road.
I have lots of things to look forward too. Gee-a regular paycheck? Wow-been a while since I have had one of those. Lots and lots of horse events...pretty much all winter long, and the joy and comfort of seeing My Honey every day. Remind me of this last one in a couple of months okay? It's been many, many years since I have lived with another adult day in and day out.
The only thing that will be missing is the other BrownEyed Cowgirl. Ya know, it just isn't going to be as much fun going and doing horse stuff without her. I hope it doesn't take her too long to get to missing her momma and I get the phone call asking me to come get her.
