Life is going onward

Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900), "The Picture of Dorian Gray"
Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it's a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.
Al Franken, "Oh, the Things I Know", 2002

Life is going onward. It may belly up at some point but I guess everything does sooner or later.

Brook was here today finally. I sure have missed that child. This afternoon we got Precious out and she rode her. Precious is a bit of a stubborn horse but Brook stayed right with her and made her go. I predict many more afternoon rides! I need to set up a dry pen. Donna knows what I mean. I am worried about Precious. She eats too much. She has not actually foundered but she could anytime. Darn her. Easy keepers are nice but they suck too.

Open House at school is on Wednesday. I hope it is not raining that day. If it is raining I will not have the truck and we will be very late for it. I will check with the teacher and make sure about the bookbag thing. I find it unrealistic that they will not be allowed something! I hope Brook gets the teacher she wants. We will see.

Brook is back at it with her Tae Kwon Do. She missed quite a bit this month. It has cost her. the group is ahead of her in their studies with the bo staff. I need to refresh my memory on how to do it and help her. It is the same form that I learned last year. They are having a sword class next month but she decided she did not wish to take it. It is the first month of school. I think it would do her good to ease back some so she can get into the rythym of school.

That's it for now. It is midnight. I need to get my vacuuming done and the clothes finished. Take care all.


  1. Hope things keep going forward for you. Paula

  2. I thought I was the only one who vacuumed and did laundry at midnight?? LOL
    You sound good in this entry. I hope you have a good week.

  3. I'm glad Brook is back.  Surely the ride did Precious good.  God bless you today with simple pleasures!  -  Barbara

  4. Keep on putting one foot in front of the other.

  5. im glad shes back

  6. It's still so hard to imagine that school is just around the corner.  I hope they do get to  use something for their books in between classes.
