I'm Still Alive

Didja miss me?

Nope, probably not, 'cause I did manage to get a few post scheduled.  The IT God is saying I'll have my computer back today sometime, so I'll be back online posting furiously tomorrow or Thursday.

In the meantime, I had a fabulous Mother's Day on Sunday (pics to follow soon) and a great sort-of vacation.  I was supposed to have the week off, but one of my instructors wasn't able to teach at the last minute, so I'm teaching day and night on Tuesdays and Thursdays, completely blowing my "vacation" week.  I'm trying hard not to be bitter about it, but not really succeeding.  The only thing keeping me from being really horrible and bitter about it is that the weather is lousy and I wouldn't be able to ride today anyway.

Got my little girl home to the Lodge and settled in just in time for this Winter Storm that's supposed to dump between 12-24" of snow on the ground sometime tonight.  We had quite an adventure getting the horses up to the lodge, then had to fix fences before we could turn them out.  Pics for that to follow as well.

Now, despite being vacation-ish time.  I'm exhausted and have a headache that won't stop, so I'm off to take a nap before my next class at 6:00.

Awww, Momma Fargo, I missed y'all, too. Using someone else's computer just isn't the same. I'm sorry you had to work on Mother's Day and I hope you weren't nice *at all* to anyone you arrested!

Vinomom and Aunt Crazy - it's Colorado, it does stuff like that here. There's about 3" on the ground here in town - I haven't called up the hill yet to see how much snow my parents got.

it's snowing here today... BOOO... I want summer!!

Sure, I'd be interested in guest blogging! Fun!

I'll keep you in mind when I need a beta reader for the full manuscript, I feel bad farming it out chapters at a time. I've edited it in paper-form, I just have to transfer all those darn notes!

Y'all got a shit ton of snow in May??

That's brutal.

Sounds like the timing was perfect to round up the herd!

And I thoroughly enjoyed the recounting of THAT adventure :)

Hope the rest of your vacation was lovely!
