I spent all of last week fighting a cold, and it still has me pretty wiped out.  I haven’t had the energy to do much more than suffer through work and then come home and go to bed, so content on the blog was a little light last week, and that will probably trickle down to next week as well.  I did get some great books to help cheer me up, even if I wasn’t actually feeling in the mood to read any of them.

Highlight of my week!

The week before last, I was in OKC at a horse show.  Elle tried her best, and I am very proud of how much she has progressed this year.  After some time outside being a horse, I think we will have even more success next year.

 

My girl and Travis after winning the Reserve World Championship 3 YR old Park Saddle class.  Hopefully next year I will be the one in the saddle!

The Borders orgy is now over.  I hadn’t planned on going to the store again, but a friend at work gave me a $25 gift card, and, well, how could I possibly turn that down?  It was like offering water to a person lost in the desert.  So, off to the store I went, with my gift card burning a hole in my pocket.  Sadly, with the stores closed forever now, this really is the last time I will get to go totally wild at Borders.
