I hate waiting

Not like waiting for a surprise or a birthday, but waiting for my husband to get home.

This morning didn't start out the best. I woke up to the sound of a 4-wheeler being ridden rather extremely and then slamming doors and stomping boots. I soon found out that T's horse escaped the pens and he was out looking for him, at 5:30 in dark in less. Well he didn't find him, instead he gathered a colt, who, if I might add, hasn't been ridden in three weeks, and took off ramming and jamming to the north ranch.

I went to town today. I had to get away for a bit and take the dog to the vet for boosters. While I was there I hung out with my dad and it was nice, getting to visit and stuff. Visited with my mom too at her new job. Oh and my grandmother but she was having bridge club so I didn't stay long. Also saw my brother and his friends who had just gotten back from working at the 06 for the day.

Anyways, I'm losing track of myself here. T told me before I left to bring him a treat from town. So, I brought pizza and his favorite candy to.. an empty house. No T, no truck, no horse or saddle. It was 6:30. So, I get the dog and go for a walk, to ease my waiting. 7:30, still no T. Ok, this has happened before, it's normal you could say. I eat some pizza, since it's getting cold and take a shower. 8:00, no T. My favorite show is on tonight so I sit and start watching, saying I'll wait till 9, then I'm going looking. Oh and if you didn't know, I have been calling since 4 this afternoon and not getting an answer. Only adds to my anxious waiting. Then, Finally at 8:15 I get a phone call, but it's not T. Oh great!! Let me share what was going through my mind. (Oh no, it is T's boss calling. Either he is asking to talk to T or he is telling me something is wrong. I knew riding that fresh colt was a bad idea!!!) All his boss told me was that he will be home in an hour and half. What??? What kind of an operation are you running here pal? That's ridiculous! Or is it just me? Not seconds later, the phone rings again, this time it is T. Thank goodness. I don't know whether to be happy or angry, not angry probably, bad idea.

So, I'm still watching my show, waiting for my husband to get home. Oh did I mention that I hate Waiting!!! Sorry, but I can't help the raging hormones...

Well, ya'll have a great night, I'll just be here, waiting.

Oh, real quick. My aunt had surgery and her pelvis that was broken in three places and is recovering from that, but from what my parents tell me, she may not be able to walk for a really long time, possibly ever. Her ribs are healing ok though I think, but she also tore something in her shoulder. She is pretty banged up and is still in Colo. Springs.

Prayer please

My aunt and uncle Bill & Marilyn Stovell are currently in Colorado Springs, CO. They were there for a reunion of some sort and were on a trail ride when my aunt was bucked off the horse she was riding. She is currently in ICU at the hospital in Colorado Springs with, and this is just what I've heard, a broken pelvis, 4 broken ribs and internal bleeding. Our prayers are going out to them and I just ask for ya'lls as well. Thank you.

Cleaning Frenzy

Yes that's right, I went on a cleaning frenzy yesterday! I don't know how or why it happened but it was proabably a good thing. After I got home from working I just went crazy! My bathroom, bedroom, and the kitchen are all clean. Of course, I didn't get one room picked up, the living room. Maybe next time!

Anyways, is it weird to say that I love my bed? I do I love my bed! Growing up I always had lots of pillows on my bed and, if you can't tell, there are a lot of pillows on my bed! I just love the quilt that my new mother-in-law made for T and I as a wedding present! And some friends of mine made the pillow cases with the horses on them as a wedding present also, they go good with the quilt!

 I also love my kitchen! You can't judge me though, because of my horses on the tops of the shelves! My mother always had cool dishes that she would put on top of her shelves, but I don't have a whole lot of nice dishes. So... I had a box of my horses that I thought would work and they did!

If you hadn't noticed, I am in a very good mood today. Mostly because we got a lot of rain yesterday and this morning we woke up and it was foggy out! Foggy!!! Makes me wonder where the snow is! Plus, the cooler temperature makes me feel better. Being raised in the the cold, I'm not to used to all the heat that we have had this summer!

Well I have to start picking up the living and packing! We may be making a quick trip up the New Mexico, if T says we can! Yay! Ya'll have a great weekend!

Labor Day Weekend

This labor day weekend has been a very eventful one, that's for sure. Yesterday was my little brother's 16th birthday. It's hard to believe that he is already 16, makes me feel old! For his birthday his grandpa had given him a truck, only it was given to him a couple of months ago so he could be day-working. So, for my surprise for him, I took it to get "cleaned,"

My friend Stormie helped me with the "cleaning!"
Can you see the Barbie hanging from the rear view mirror?
I think we did a very good job!

I can't believe that my brother was so gullible to let me have his truck keys. Our conversation went like this..
Me: "Lj, I need your truck keys please,"
Lj: "Umm, why?"
Me: "I'm taking it to get detailed for your birthday,"
Lj: "OK!!"
Silly brother of mine. He even got it at church on Sunday. Pastor Wendell asked him to come help him with something up front and Lj went up there, being the good cowhand he is. Wendell then had him stand on a bale, which really should have tipped Lj that something was up, but no! We then proceeded to sing Happy Birthday and that's when he finally got it! His defense: "I forgot that it was my birthday...!" Yay for little brothers right!

Well that was only half of the very eventful weekend. The other half you will have to guess... but here is a picture to help ya figure it out (for those who haven't already!)

Ya'll have a great week!

I just had to share!

I think my husband is a little kid still deep down inside. I really do! He wanted me to give him a hair cut yesterday and while I was inside searching for a mirror he thought he would start cutting his hair himself. Well, just like a little kid, he did this....

Now his whole head looks like that and all I've heard from him the last 24 hours is how cold his head is. THEN! On top of that he told everyone he works with that I did it!! Not true!!!

What am I going to do with him. Ssshhh don't tell him I put this on here though... But I just had to share!

On a different note, Spur helped me gather the horses this morning.

I don't know if he really enjoyed it but it was good for him. He is still scared of the horses but hopefully not for long!

Ya'll have a blessed weekend!!
