start of a new season

Well today is the the start of the new MX Season for my son, I guess we will be running around like crazy from now until the 1st of the new year.   There are 16 races in his series plus the ones we just decided to go to.  I'm staying home today because it is just way to hot to carry the little one when the temps are 96 degrees and God only knows what the heat index is going to be. 
I'm just hoping he rides well and is safe. 
And with the new season I thought I would do something a little different here too.  I'm going to to try to journal 365 days of my riding, with myself and my horses ( one I still have to find ) of getting back into barrel racing. just a disclaimer it might take more that a calendar year, you know us mom's are that way.   And, the things I need to do to get back in the game.  It might just not be about riding, could be barn work, and other things too :)   oh and the new computer had to take it back and get a new one Thank Goodness for Sam's club and their 90 day guarantee.  I will never by another Dell product again, I think the actual machine was okay, but it was their customer service I was very, very disappointed with.  Well, enough of my rambling I'm off to do barn chores before it gets to hot, and I have to purge the little ones room before she gets home.... I'm thinking she might become a candidate for that show hoarders :)

Made in the USA

Do you know how hard it is to find a pair of decent riding boots made in the USA... Well let me tell you,  I've been searching the internet today.... since I'm home from work...had to have tooth cut out... looking for a new pair of boots.   So far  I found out that only some of Justin's boots are made here, along with Tony Lama's which is what started me on the quest to find a new pair of boots made in the USA... up late watching TV and they are saying all their boots were made in the USA.  So ..... I'm thinking I'm going to go with a either a pair of Anderson Beans aren't these cute?
I hear these are live Heaven for you feet which after a broken foot you need
and I kinda like these  double H boots too

love the fact these are made in Pennsylvania

and I can't count out the Boulet Boots from our neighbors to the north either.  They have some sweet looking boots also :) 

just love the turquoise color on these 

 I'll be sad to let my Justin Gypsy's go, they have served me well, but I feel that I, We need to start serving ourselves and buying American when we can to help each other.  But the main thing will any of these babies hold up to the the hell I can put a pair shoes thru whether it is flip flops, mud boots, tennis shoes or riding boots.  I'll let you know

Hey there

Well again it has been forever since I've updated.  Things are great here finally got a new computer so maybe this computing thing will be a little easier than it has been.  You now when it takes 15 minutes to download  a page it is really time to get a new computer.  But I'm trying to live my life a little more frugally and pay cash for things and save so that we can buy a new house.  We have really outgrown this place,  it is a great starter home but when you have 2 kids  2 adults and 2 dogs all in the same 1700 sq feet things can get a little tight :)  so my project for the next couple of  months is getting this place organized and hopefully it will me give a little more time to do the things I love to do!!!   and a shout out to all the Dads out there Happy Fathers Day  I really missed my dad I wished he was still here especially to meet his granddaughter, she is jut like him.  I'm in so much trouble, I see it now.  TPWB is doing great getting ready to get the MX season started next week,  He is riding well for him, Just gotta get all the negativity out of his head.  Its funny when the people you care about, don't support what you want to do how it can affect especially a kid trying to do something he loves.  So to all you peeps out there if you have a family member that does something and you really don't agree with it still try to support them, it will make all the difference in the world to that person in your life... well I've gotta get to the grocery store and the barn.... no, I haven't gotten a new horse yet, still working on that
