update [Dec. 12th, 2005|06:09 am]
[mood |contentcontent]

Well it's been awhile since I updated. Same old stuff going on. Girls riding, though they are now cleaning one day a week at the barn to help cover the expenses of board and gas and everything else. Every little bit counts though. Made Ashley a long coat like mine. Hers turned out alot better though. Shelby is finally most of the way through 6th grade. There is a good chance if she really keeps at it she will be caught up and maybe even ahead by the end of the year. Ashley is getting there too but not as close as Shelby. Survivor finished up last night. Now what am I going to watch. With any luck they will have another rock star on. That was one good show!! Short but sweet. Have a good holiday in case I don't update.

Well we won't be leasing the pony we were interested in. They decided to sell instead and I don't have money to buy right now. So well will just keep up with the lessons. It will be winter before we know it and very cold. So poor Ashley. Banged up, pulled muscles AND no horse.

We went and saw Sky High last night with a bunch of goofball friends of my moms. They were weird but Ashley and I were together so it made the night alot better. The movie was really good though. It had Kurt Russell in it which made it awesome of course but the show had a good story. We will have to buy that one when it comes out!

David comes to town today and has like 3 activities planned for the next three days. I will go to some of the things but I am not doing them all. From a few festivals a day to Cosi and the zoo, a movie, planetarium, apple butter festival, seeing Tango, cemetary to see my grandma. I am supposed to be a little bit rested when I go back to work on Tuesday but it doesn't look like that will happen this weekend! But it is nice having him come around. We so rarely see family from out of town. And we only started getting back in touch with him last Thanksgiving on our bus trip to Chicago. So it is great!!

Well we are thinking about leasing Ashley a pony. I feel bad that she only gets to ride twice a month when she has a lesson the lazy pony. She has to really get out there and make him move but he fights her the whole time. Shelby is looking really nice on Tango though.

I have been working ten hour shifts for three weeks now. Time seems to go a little faster when we are there now at least. It is a long day and I come home pretty tired but having that extra day off is really nice. I can help the girls with their schoolwork easier when I have a three day weekend. My last four day weekend we got rid of our storage unit and did alot of cleaning up around the house. Well now the garage and barn are full but at least it is all here. We need to go through everything again and get rid of more but at least it is here!

Trammell got fired from the Tigers. We all figured it would happen as the team played so bad the last month or so. But it is still sad to see my childhood hero go. Though I guess with him being there I really started following the Tigers again and got to learn alot about the current team and players. And the girls also started liking baseball and the Tigers. So it was a great thing that he was there. But he will be missed.

Poor Ashley, her scooter tried to eat here yesterday. She doesn't get thrown from horses but her scooter bucks her off! Major road burn. Debated taking her to the hospital last night when she cried forever because it hurt so bad. But not much they could do either.

Summer is almost over. The nights are getting cooler. No one hardly uses the pool any more. Almost time to take it down. Show season is almost over. YEAH!!!

Almost ready to quit the horse thing altogether right now. It is too hard to get the girls out to ride. They want to spend time with friends. No one for Ashley to ride at the new barn. Lessons haven't been working out for Ashley. Either we forget and Ashley already has plans and isn't going out there. We can't get out there early enough because of Oreo's therapy. Or Shelley forgets. I think Shelby misses riding with all the girls so she doesn't seem to be gung ho so much any more. Gas prices are crazy!!! Now all my money seems to be going on gas, horses and Oreo.

The poor boy walked for 20 minutes on the treadmill on Wednesday. I thought I would have to carry him out of there. He had jello legs. Hopefully this all helps him to get some weight off. Then surgery on both his knees. What a treat for losing weight!! Not to mention he has to eat prescription dog food which is $50 for a 30# bag.

The lady I work with has been on vacation all week and I have had to deal with all specialties at work myself. And of course they have all had issues at the same time. She gets back on Tuesday so hopefully it calms down soon.

Sorry I didn't have time to update any sooner. It has been a busy week. As the whole summer is turning out to be. Had someone come out and give us an estimate on getting new carpeting. He is coming out again tomorrow to sign all the papers. Then next saturday then install it. Yeah and boo!!!! Yeah we really need it but boo loads of stuff to move of the kids in the dining room. Guess who gets to pack up all their stuff and unpack it all!!!

Also were at the barn a couple of days. It won't be around much longer and we have a rally coming up on the 30th. So we have to get out there to practice now. Saturday we have a meeting and practice for the kids too. Then Sunday I have to go into work and get a bunch of evals done that are way past due. My counterpart and I are just learning how to do them online and need to do it when it is fairly peaceful.

Tigers lost yesterday....Boo

Well camping went well. Nice and relaxing. Learned a little bit from Connie about computer stuff to play with. This being one of them! Got the camper all unloaded and brought everything in. After we got home we went to the Polish Festival. Shelby won 4 plants. Ashley had a good time playing games and eating red raspberry icees. Off to take my daily nap!!
