I got to give him the BOOT. He will now occupy MY space out in the reception area.
That will learn him to throw me under the bus day after day, take ZERO responsibility for his screw ups and lack of knowledge in this business.
I WILL TAKE YOUR OFFICE !
I SHALL BE THE VICTOR!
CAN I GET AN AMEN!
Thank you Jesus for answering my prayers and giving me a new direction.
So what does a girl do?
Call her friend and beg her to ride your horse for the next three weeks. I watch the kiddo, she rides Sis. She happily agreed.
I sure do love my friends.
If it is not one thing ............

This is me at the top of the PALMS, where the Playboy club is. We went to Rain, but not Playboy. Maybe next time. Once again VIP, walked right in and took the elevator to the top of the club to the VIP area and got home around 3 am! Not bad for a couple of 40 year olds!
We were at a bar/club called Kahunaville in the Treasure Island casino. Fun place and the food was amazing! These drinks were called the Big Kahuna. they are sneaker drinks, very fruity and sweet but about an hour later you are feeling it!
Aren't they huge? and so so so tasty. We had three of these! That's alot of booze.. Yikes.
This is Cheryl the birthday girl. I am so happy she is gettin on with gettin on, she finally dumped her POS husband and is celebrating life at it's fullest.
Carol and I again. I will have before and afters tomorrow. The beauty transformation took HOURS. :) You will be shocked !
all in all it was a very god time, but I'm exhausted and ready to go to bed early tonight!
Being 40 and partying can be so exhausting!!!

Not to Gamble, Not to get stupid drunk, but to hang with my friend.
Plans are poolside with cold beer, some dancing, high brow window shopping and some yummy food. She is a killer cook.
See everyone on Monday!
You know there will be pictures! Stay tuned!

Star: All I wanted to do was run through those fields, with the wind whipping my mane and breathe in the fresh outdoorsy air. There was so much to see, hear and smell. Hold onto your hiney Momma I'm ready to fly, this is going to be the best EVER!
But my dream was not meant to be. Momma kept saying Whoa Star, not today Star, maybe someday Star. She sure knows how to harsh a Mare's mellow. So my view was these two big brown butts. She sez it's cuz she needs to trust that I won't go all bat**** bucking bronc. I say it's cuz her lack of man parts. Aren't human mares supposed to be tougher than geldings?
Yeah, thats what I thought too. I think Momma needs a CTJ meeting.
But only after we had to stop and wait for the other two big brown butts to catch up. Sage turned her head around to whisper, PSSSST! around this next corner start cantering, pass it on.
And for the big announcement?
I quit my job, my last day is May 30. I prayed and asked for guidance, got the support of my husband and took the leap. I will be doing my same job , but from home. I am going to be self employed. I already have some clients lined up and am excited at the prospect of being my own boss. This has been a long time coming, while I apply for a federal jobs as well!
I have never felt so free of burden and stress. I'm ready to run through that field!

This is me hoping they don't catch that pop fly so I can go.
I played right field. I am not the greatest outfielder, I have only ever played infield. But I can throw! Sort of, I need to work on that too............
At least my white legs got some sun, I hate shorts always have, if they had softball Capri's I would be wearing them ! I have hated shorts since I was a little kid. I prefer pants or skirts.

Who doesn't love free lunch? JP2 hooked us up today ! YUM YUM, I knew I loved her for a reason.
So last night ( Wednesday) I pulled the muscle in my butt. You know the one that runs up your butt cheek, yeah that one. I go to get off Star who by the way was an angel for having three weeks off, and POP I can't move.
Lucky for me BBFF was there to untack and put Star away and all my crap. But the funniest part was she stepped onto the tip of my dressage whip and literally whipped her own A$$ !
I think it left a mark right up her butt. HAHAHAHA!!!
I would have been screwed if she hadn't been there to help I could barely walk. Getting older just plain blows. I'm feeling it today for sure. I'm not a fan of the butt pain., espeically since it's not even a cool story!
So tonight I'm warming up for practice a little sore but then I went for a grounder and POP again. I was done, I couldn't move, run or anything. Once again feeling the pains of an aging body!
We scrimmaged against the male version of my team. They call them selves the Martini's, they have a banner and a fight song, even the gals on MY team were like " omg we aren't THAT gay"!
So when the game was over we team yelled " shaken not stirred" It was a riot!
But one of the men called my pink bag a DIAPER BAG! Now I'm definitely getting a black one, the big pink bag has got to go.
Some of the gals offered to massage me, I think at last count it was 15 bucks, it started at 40!
I think I am growing on them :)
My sweetie gets home tomorrow!!!!! YEAH!!!!!
I have someone to massage my backside! YEAH!

I am struggling with a tremendous loss today.
What is strange is that this morning before I left , I made myself late because I wanted to take these pics of the orchids Shawn bought me before they were done blooming. I wanted to capture them at their most spectacular.
The morning light was amazing this morning as I took these. I didn't want to miss this opportunity to enjoy the beauty of them ! I walk by them everyday and never stopped to take their pictures, almost taking those blooms for granted.
Don't wait for the perfect morning light, don't wait for more blossoms to bloom, if you wait too long to appreciate the blooms you have you will missed it.

This is me sitting on the bench for the first two innings. I have yet to prove myself, so I expected as much. This is proof to Shawn I was actually playing softball at a softball field. Not out drinking with JP2 and BBFF whilst he is in Oklahoma.

I wanted to join an all women's team and at 40 most teams are either HARD CORE FAST BALL, or Co-ED. Neither of which I was interested in!
I brought my hustle! My Game! My Mojo! My cat like reflexes.
Then as the evening went on it was more like meander, then on to mosey, then onto look there goes the ball ......
I am clearly 40 and my inner athlete has moved on elsewhere.
But I am on the team and we have our first scrimmage on Saturday.
I made a joke about " after game ALEVE Cocktails" , most of us agreed it was a good idea !
Now, I'm off to bed to find my heating pad !!!

The banging you hear is a child that was unattended and decided to bang his boots on the metal bleachers every time I got out the camera or was talking on my cell phone. Up and down bang bang bang. I wanted to lock him in the horse trailer so bad. Is that wrong?
Now I know why gerbils eat their young.
I would love to be on this team but practice is very far and I have a job that requires me to be there ALL DAY!
til next time COWGIRLS!

Then that night was cupcake making for my contest winner. I like them to be fresh !
Logen was doing the frosting and decorating part. He wants to join the Army to go to culinary school.
We made a huge mess , but the end result was fantastic.

as a contact to help me with Sis and her hooves.
When I went to the site I saw this post. As most of my blogger peeps and family knows I and Shawn are completely OCD about trailer safety, that's why she has never ridden in my trailer as it needs work and isn't baby safe yet. I hope he doesn't mind me re-posting it because I think it's an important PSA. Do they make bubble wrap for horses?
THIS IS GRAPHIC, I kid you not. So I urge all of you to do a complete once over this weekend of anything that could possibly do damage to the pony. The poor owner and what she and her kiddos must be going through. I pray for them and Fancy. I would be in the loony bin if this ever happened to me. It could happen to any of us at anytime.
Do not look at this while eating.

Here is the culprit hoof, see the silicone? Her toes were the most bruised and her heels were too short. The angles were way off from what the previous farrier had them for the last year. I know every farrier has an opinion and certain way of doing things, but with Stat we have to keep what works.
Wednesday, April 1, 2009
Sis is lame. I mean painful tip toe lame.
The farrier who is on my sh** list at the moment, whom I felt did not take my concerns on Monday seriously. I felt like he was treating me like an over anxious Mamma.
DUH! That's exactly what I am !
I said I would call Wednesday if she was worse. Not only is Sis worse she is 10x worse.
Heat, pulse and cant pivot and stands on her tip toe kind of worse.
He cut back the bars and filled in the void with an acrylic, I was skeptical but felt assured it was going to do her good to get us over the contracted heel so we can eventually go barefoot. I am a believer in barefoot ponies, but Sis has always had troublesome feet and when we were on a good time frame to take the shoes off for good, we may have taken a few steps back. DAMMIT!
Well, he is coming back out tomorrow and he needs to pray I've calmed down.
There are few things that make me lose sleep and anything that has to do with her being in pain, stress or discomfort keeps me awake all night. I am her keeper and I take it seriously.
You hurt my girl , I kick your ass.
Well, time for bed so I can lay there and pray that I don't have to go all Ninja tomorrow.
