Proud Momma

I'm one proud momma.
I'm proud of Kimberlee for doing such a great job on Monday and Tuesday at the fair!

Monday she received:
1) a ribbon for the animal exhibit
2) an 8th place ribbon in Western Fitting & Showing
3) a 3rd place ribbon in Walk/Trot Equitation
4) a 2nd place ribbon in Walk/Trot Pleasure

Tuesday she received:
1) a 7th place ribbon in Walk/Trot Western Horsemanship
2) a 5th place ribbon in Walk/Trot Western Pleasure
3) a 2nd place ribbon in Walk/Trot Trail

Wednesday she was ready to compete in the Dressage class and Oscar, her beloved horsey, decided he wanted to do things his way. Kim said she was in an extended trot and all of a sudden Oscar decided he wanted to canter. Well, Kim hasn't worked with him enough to canter and he headed for the dressage fence. Kim ended up falling off of him. She's fine but she sure did give me a scare considering I wasn't there and I had to rely on her dad for information. So, she scratched the other 2 classes she was supposed to ride in on this day and she scratched for today too. It's probably better this way because some horses just do not like to be in stalls for 4-5 days straight and Oscar is one of them. He gets antsy and then things like this happen.

Anyhow, I'm still a very proud momma! K did great for her 2nd year showing!

Love you K!

Sunday, August 15, 2010 Marshall

Lindsay and I made it over to Marshall this afternoon about 3:30pm. I stayed over at her dads house catching up with some of his family til about 5:30pm and then headed to the hotel to check in and get settled.

I'm sitting here in the hotel room, watching General Hospital on SoapNet, playing on my computer. Good times.

Even though I love my little sweetheart, Charlee Lyn, I am seriously happy to have a night & the day tomorrow without her. I can focus on my older 2 girls as one of them is showing horses at the County Fair and the other will be helping out at the fair with the horses.

Have a great night & I'll check in again this week sometime!

Weekend is here!

And thank goodness. I'm looking forward to a little "me" time in the next few days. It's Saturday and what we'd like to do is go to Kensington Metro Park for the Colonial Kensington days. Not sure if we'll make it though because of the weather. If its too hot, there is just no way we'll go. But it starts at 10am, so we might just luck out. We'll see. And Lindsay gets back tonight from her Cedar Point trip with her BFF, Alex. Alex and her mom were gracious enough and asked Lindsay to go with them. They were staying at the Great Wolf Lodge and going to Cedar Point. I'm sure Lindsay had a ball!

Sunday Lindsay and I are going to Marshall to the Calhoun County Fair. Kimberlee is showing Oscar this year there. So, I will either dropping Lindsay off at her dads house or we will be joining the others at the fairgrounds. Sunday night I get to stay in Marshall at the Holiday Inn :) That ought to be interesting....I probably won't know what to do! lol

Monday Kimberlee is showing Oscar so I'll be at the fairgrounds for most of the day. Then I will travel back home that night. Tuesday is "kids" day at the fair, so my mother in law, Charlee, Joe and I will go back as Kimberlee shows again and my "big kid Joe" can ride rides too.

Wednesday and Thursday is back to work and then Thursday afternoon is the dentist. Thursday evening, my mother in law, Charlee and I will be going back to Marshall for the next few days. We'll be back home Saturday evening.

So, I'm really glad the weekend is here. Although it sounds like I'll be awfully busy this next week, I look forward to this because I really think it'll be fun. This is my vacation away from home basically, even though I'll be home for part of it.

Will try to update as the weekend/week goes by.

Ta ta for now!

Long time no blog....

Wow, has it really been that long?? Yep, sure enough.

Time flies when you are having fun! My friend Stephanie has started blogging and so it made me realize that I need to get back on here and blog too!

Lot has happened since December 2008 when I last posted. But rather than try to think back to all the happenings, I say we just move forward! I'm thinking I probably don't have any followers anymore since it's been so long. And that is understandable. But maybe this will just work out good as a release for my everyday life & frustrations and make me feel better, even if no one is reading it!

So, on with my day. TTYL!
