I cannot believe another week has flown by so quickly!
Next Saturday, my sister comes for a visit. I’m excited she’s coming! The sad part is I’m not excited that she is going to be in South Dakota on the day that she should have been getting married. The best part- that the stupid asshole she was going to marry, flipped out before they started their life together. I am, however, still bitter about how obnoxious he is, and how no one in the church wants to tell him to not act like a little spoiled child. Which is he. He better hope he never sees me again, because chances are really good, I’ll choke him. In front of God and everybody, until he apologizes for being such a boy.
Ok. Now on to happier things, (and yes, my teeth were gritted in the above paragraph, Zach, but I’m over it now).
Yesterday I washed my truck. Aren’t you proud, Daddy? Right before branding (in JUNE!) my truck basically had a mudbath. Kelsey and I went down the road about 40 miles to pick up her cousin, my neice, Cindy and her horse. It was right after a pretty good rain, and you can imagine how a dirt and gravel road might give a truck a mudbath. I really didn’t mean to put off washing it, but it did get put off. I thought washing it would be a great way to kill two birds with one stone- I have been laying out over lunch, and thought, I could wash it, and get some sun at the same time. Only, I didn’t get an ounce of sun on my legs. NONE. Today will be a better day for that- it’s windy and that will keep the bugs away. I’m not sure how long I’ll have to stay out there. Wednesday I laid out on one side for an hour, and got not a single line. The sad part is that my arms and shoulders and hands keep getting darker. So maybe I am getting sun, but the rest of me can’t catch up!
I’ve ridden Nukie the last two days (WDX Nukem). He is my latest barrel horse project. I adore him. He should be ready to start showing him the town later this fall. He also has the prettiest mane, ever (click his name above to see). Today I will probably ride a Nukie, a Gumper, a Camo a Big and a Dino and whatever else I have time for.
Tonight I think we’ll go up to the Days of 1910 Celebration in Timber Lake, SD. It’s supposed to be fun. We did not go last year as I think Zach needed to hay and there were other things for us to do around here. Anytime I get to go out with Mr. Hotness (Zach) and show off how good we look together, life can’t be bad.
I also realize I’ve been slacking off in The Spin Cycle department, and I hope to remedy that beginning next week. Since the good weather started, I have had trouble keeping up with this blog, let alone reading others so I never know what the assignment is, and in the chance that I find out, I don’t have time to write anyway!
