Trail Riding

We went to Turtle Island Preserve yesterday and rode all day with Eustace Conway. I've blogged about him before but for those that don't know he's pretty famous. We got to ride with Denise from NC Tool (a farrier supply company) and her friend Pam who is a wine maker from a local vineyard (as soon as I find out which one I will change this and put it in).

So below are some pictures from the day. It's not a detailed post today. I've got to take Littlest to the doctor. I think he has an ear infection.

Real Quick

Ok, so this weekend was great once we got there. We went through some trouble with campers, but all-in-all everything turned out great. I'm posting quickly because I have to go mow grass for my dad. I promised him I'd get it done today and I have to. So I'm throwing up a video of Littlest Cowboy at the rodeo. I'm also including some photos. But that's all you are getting from me today. Maybe as I'm driving around on the lawn mower I will think of a great post and do an extra post today.

It's Friday

SO it's Friday. It's Friday. I'm sorry that it's not Thursday. I am supposed to blog on Tuesdays and Thursdays. (As La Vida Mia pointed out for me. Thanks!) BTW--You don't EVER BLOG!!!

I started Thursday morning at 6am. Helpless and her cute little girls stayed at the house the night before. Their new place didn't have water, so they came over and we had a sleepover here. I got up at 6 and started the morning with them. Then we ran all day yesterday until 10 at night.

I hate it but I have to go clothes shopping. I have to have to. I don't have many nice winter shirts. Yeah, um maybe 2. That's not good for someone who only washes clothes once a week. So I guess I'll save up some money, and start hunting for bargains or find patterns to make some cute shirts.

This weekend is a big rodeo (the finals) for the Littlest Cowboy. We'll be traveling down to Pelzer, SC. I'm so excited. I hope Littlest is too. Anyway. I've go to go fold laundry so Husband and littlest have something to wear.

This is a great picture of my middle sister. I think it's one of her best.

Anyway all I can say is YUCK! I hate a runny nose. I hate an upset stomach. HATE HATE HATE!!!

I started the first lines at 7 this morning. It's now 10 and I'm restarting. It's been a run around morning.

We've been moving helpless over to her new place. She's finally happy and excited about the move.

I'm a little overwhelmed. I have to find a job, or make a job for myself. It's very stressful. I love being at home. But to be able to have a home (we have 5 years left on payments) I have to bring in money. So today as Littlest Cowboy is off at his grandmother's and Husband is working (thankfully) I'm job hunting (and blogging).

Year of Paint

Not a relevant picture, but you have to admit that it is a great shot.

I know if you look at the time stamp on this it is technically Wednesday. But tomorrow I may not be home at all (well until about 9 at night). So it's 9:30 Littlest Cowboy is in bed, not asleep, but in bed. We have to take my sister over at La Vida Mia to the airport to go to Chicago, IL over her fall break. Littlest Cowboy and I are taking her at 6 am!!! I know. I am treating myself to a Shoney's Breakfast Buffet. YUMMY!!!!

So the :Year of Painting". I've painted and painted and painted this year (well, since I've been laid off). I painted a 2 bedroom, 2 bath house for my stepdaughter earlier this summer. It had to be primed then painted. Then I help my friend Helpless paint a 3 bedroom 1.5 house primed and painted. Then just today I help my neighbor paint the inside of her horse stalls.

Tomorrow I will take La Vida Mia and her friend to the airport. Then stop at Goodwill or The Hospice Resale store for any deals for Helpless and dressers. Then go to Helpless's House and see what else needs to be packed. And hopefully start moving her. I'll be so glad when my day's my own.

I want to comment on politics, but this is not a political blog. I'm not stating if I'm for McCain & Palin or if I'm for Obama & Bidden. But regardless you should be up to date on politics. I'm watching the debates and getting frustrated.

So with all that in mind maybe you'll read all this tomorrow. I'm sure you all (all 5) are jumping on my blog at 6:30 am to read this junk that I write about 2x a week.

OH OH OH! I have exercised 2 times this week. I've done it. WOOOO HOOO! But I have to skip tomorrow, I mean seriously. I'm not exercising at 6:00 am. Yeah a little too early for me.

What to do.

I'm not sure what to do. I haven't found a job yet. It's been 6 months. And nothing. Nothing. Nothing.

I've been fantasising about doing something on my own. My fear (as with most people) is that I can not make enough to help support my family. I've 13 more weeks on unemployment. I'm going to research like crazy (when I'm not helping Helpless paint). And present something to Husband.

SO anyways. We've been painting. I hate painting. I'm so tried of painting. Painting, painting and painting. Helpless and I took a break and went to see Gary Allen and Eric Church in concert at ASU. It was awesome. We had horrible seats, but jumped up and ran up to the barrier and was right in front of the microphone. I was so scared we'd get kicked out. Really I was worried.

Littlest Cowboy's finals are next weekend. We are gearing up for that. Anyways. Off to paint/research.

Crazy Busy

So I told you about my friend, who brought her cows to the local county fair. So for 3 mornings and 3 nights I ran into to won to feed those cows. All I managed to do during that time was wash a few dishes and a few clothes (enough to not be naked). SO there went that post.

Then my other friend called. I had to run to her rescue. So for the last 4 days I've been frantically helping her at her house. SO that's where I've been. I'm so sorry. Or as the littlest cowboy says "I'm worry".

So today Me and above friend (sorry not grammatically correct, but I sounds boring the other way) are headed to Boone, NC. We are going to see Gary Allen in concert (he's a country singer). Helpless friend is desperately in love with him. and if I don't write back it's because Helpless has kidnapped Gary Allen and is turned him into her bedroom slave!!! Shocking I know.

So at Helpless's house we've been painting and painting and painting. It's been a heck of a thing. All that painting is crazy!!!! But it's getting done, and we should start moving her and her family into the new place in a few days.

Don't ask about the exercise thing. I'm not there yet. I'm sorry I was MIA for a while. I truly thought about this blog everyday. I just simply ran out of time. "I'm worry".

No picture today. I couldn't think of one to post.

I promise, I'll post.

OK, so I've been at the local county fair (which is the largest county fair in the nation) I've been there for the past 4 days. I promise I'll post tomorrow. pictures and all.
