A List

  1. There are worse things to do first thing in the morning than take care of horses and play with kittens.
  2. Late October rain, oh how do I love thee!
  3. Times are changing! Hubby is gone for the week and both kiddos spent all of last night doing homework. I got to do whatever I wanted – by myself! I liked it for about 5 minutes. The rest of the time was just weird.
  4. Palomino poniesĀ love to roll in the mudĀ on a gloriously rainy day.
  5. Owners of palomino ponies who love to roll in the mud on a gloriously rainy day do not appreciate the grooming afterward.
  6. My Highlander had this horrible smell the entire drive home from town last night – like a hot burning smell. All gauges are normal. Engine looked fine (but did smell when the fan turned on).
  7. I’m not in the mood to deal with a broken vehicle – so I will drive the truck until Hubby comes home and we decide what to do.
  8. I thought I’d hate having to drive the kids to and from school every day. Wrong! I love it! It’s so fun to see all the high school kids enjoying the days as they should. Homecoming week has been especially fun to watch.
  9. It’s frustrating having to wait weeks to get a quote on ground leveling for the arena.
  10. October is not a good time to need to buy hay, but we need to buy hay to get through winter.
  11. Horse shopping is fun, stressful, and incredibly educational.
  12. Large thoroughbred horses will act like they’re freezing to death in 45 degree weather, but find it absolutely acceptable to stand out in the rain and get soaked once you put a waterproof blanket on them.
  13. Irish coffee on a rainy Thursday morning – yum.
  14. I scheduled Senora Boedie and Kaboodle to get their booster shots . . . on Friday, November 13th. Great idea to take a black cat on a car ride on Friday the 13th???
  15. I love that my kiddos are old enough to have real conversations and joke around with us :-)
