Well we got our new (to us) truck on Monday...what a day..I had my mom and Greg's mom with us and we had to wait an hour or more to get the truck and then two hours at the Reg of Motor vehicles to get the paperwork done. Those poor ladies sat in the car all day.We were supposed to shop after picking up the truck but we were all too worn out.
Good things happen sometimes , we sold some steel that we had and on Wed we sold the old truck so we now owe very very little on the new one..Yah!!
The weather has been nice and I have been puttering outside a bit..taking the cat for walks around the lawns and gardens..yup he's still with on puree'd liver and cream!!! Yuk! I've ridden a few times this week too. I think Roxy enjoys it but she is so unfit , it will take a long time to bring her back to where she was last summer. She is a senior too so I can relate to the way she reacts to the exercise.
Mum has been super supportive for me and is even dieting along with me . We got out shopping yesterday and it was nice to spent some girl time together.We mostly bought groceries but even that is fun sometimes.
Tomorrow my whole family , neices, grand nephews, their hubbys, my brother and his wife ...are all supposed to come for a family meal..a feast..but the weather sounds terrible..freezing rain and snow in the forecast..For heavens sake it's mid April...enough already!!
I've had a couple people approach me about work but they have not started up yet so I am still waiting for a call. I applied again at the post office and hope that works out.
well, must go watch Jeopardy.

    Am sick of the weather too, flooding and mudding everywhere...makes me so sad for the horses. We don't have stalls, just lean tos and the mud is awful.

Though, hay prices here went up a whole 2.5 times normal price because of the drought last year, so hard to complain about the rain too much. Farmers are getting worried though that they should have been in fields by now, but they cant get out there because of too much rain/mud/flood.

    I watched Jeopardy too! I got the G plus 3 answer right...gait! LOL My boy needs some ride time as well. We have our first horse show in a few weeks and we are not in shape at all. I also wish this crappy weather would go somewhere already! This weekend is cold, yet it is supposed to get back into the 70s next week. I may try and wash one horse at a time and blanket them for the night if it stays warm enough. I will be heading to the BMV tomorrow to get plates for the car. I just got my title Thursday and my temp tags run out on Sunday. Talk about cutting it close! Enjoy your new truck now that you finally got it!
