Fall hasn't officially started...

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

... but already feeling tired just from thinking about everything I need to do! Okay, wrong perspective. I am EXCITED about everything I WANT to do! No one is twisting my arm to do anything, so I should be excited!

And I am. Just alot of full weekends. Is this what it is like to get back in the swing of things and start living again?! emoticon It is so much better than the alternative, that is for sure. emoticon or even worse!

So let's see, more family gatherings. Some with in-laws, and some with out-laws like birthday parties, family dinner here in September and another one here in October. Gender party this weekend, and need to have a baby shower this fall. I have I think 5 trail rides in the next two months. One of which will be here. Will do a ride, a potluck and a bonfire on the beach by the pond. I had wanted to have my girlfriends over for an evening but I don't see having time to do that also. They will all just have to come for the trail ride :)

And then there are the board meetings for both me and for DH. He was just recently asked to be on the Board for the Red Cross. I also joined the Garden Club and wouldnt-cha-know-it, they were asked to host the District Meeting for this year. So lots to do for that before next Saturday.

And then I need to keep DH happy also. Bike Fest at the Lake is also next weekend. There are bike rides every weekend I am sure. I have several Groupons for restaurants that we need to use this fall. I thought we could work those into our bike rides.

Anyways, I really am pretty excited about the trail rides. I love riding my horse and I just havent done near enough of it the last few years. It is just so therapeutic. I relax, I laugh, I have some time to hear my own thoughts and then I am able to be creative and have lots of new ideas. It has just been far too long. And my horse will be pleased to carry a lighter load :)

I hope everyone has a productive Fall and is able to take advantage of the fantastic fall weather every chance you get!

    I know what you mean. My autumn schedule is starting to pick up the pace. It's like coming out of some kind of hibernation.

By the way, great wallpaper!

    i'm jealous. i haven't ridden my horse since february when he tore a tendon. it is healed now, but, he has done something else and is still lame. we are doing chiropractor and accupuncture now. did the first one last sunday. i think i see an improvement and i am seeing the possibility of riding again in my future. i love my horse, but, we haven't been able to do anything! and it is getting boring.

    I know, it should still be summer for another month, but in the stores are Halloween items and soon will be xmas stuff. Crazy Daisy!! You can make those good choices as it sounds like you've got them on the brain. Enjoy and way to make it from "have to" to "excited to!!"

    That what we like to see a full diary, keeps you on the go, stops you from making bad choices because you won't have time to think about them. Just have a few prepared snacks handy. Enjoy your fall, I'm looking forward to spring. We are still having rain though at the moment.

    It is great that you are involved in a lot of things to keep you busy! They sound like fun!
Go to the family functions with your head held high, and no worrying!
