Here I am
I am still here. My birthday did not get any better. Let's just leave it at that. Next year I will not be having a birthday.
I hate sinuses. I hate them even more when you get a cold on top of it. Want to see people jump away from you? Try sneezing or coughing in public right now. That swine flu has everybody scared. I guess I should be. I live next door to some pigs. The swine flu does not scare me. All deaths from it (in USA) have been because the person had some other illness also. There are more deaths from regular flu than this swine flu. Not worried unless I start oinking instead of honking.
Our new horses are great. Cheyenne is 13 years. She has a great walk and run. She has been trained to compete in shows. Brook has been enjoying the rides she has been getting. We are having to work on Crystal and Precious. They have to get used to somebody else riding with them. We want to be able to load them all on the same trailer so we can ride somewhere else together. Easter is 5 years old. She is a sweetheart. She does have a major problem. She is not trained. Sure you can get on her back but she has no idea what to do. We are looking into a few trainers as we feel that she will be an excellent horse.
Friday(my ex birthday) Brook helped with the black belt test. She was beautiful! I am proud of her as she preformed her duties well. We had 3 take their test. As always I cried during the tea ceremony. It is such a solemn moment. I have not asked for permission from the parents to post the kids pictures so you will just have to take my word for it. Their faces are beaming with pride and show signs of exhaustion.
Ok itis time for me to get busy. I have work to catch up on that I was not able to do when I was sick. If it hit the floor it stayed there as my head would explode if I bent over.
