Gettin' Out Of The Rut!

Vaquerogirl was sooo right.  Lots of us have just been getting by, doing the same old same old, day after day.  Today, we girls united and broke out!  No stall cleaning, laundry, yard work or whatever it is that we do day after day.  Today was deemed "Girls Day Out".  My girls, "T", my barn helper, and "B", my riding coach and of course,Penny Pinscher,  met at the barn at 11:00 a.m.  We had on clean clothes and shoes(only you folks with horses know the importance of this) and headed to Lincoln to a cafe called "Awful Annies".  It was there that the fun started.  We gossiped and laughed while having an awsome lunch.  

Then we loaded back into the truck and went to Christensens Saddlery.  SHOPPING!!!!!  The girls helped me pick out a hunt coat and some shirts.  They managed to find some new lightweight helmets they liked.  I found a helmet that really fit me good, and then the sales lady informed me that it was almost $500.00.  WHAT!!!  My head and the horse I am riding aren't worth that much together.  No helmet for me.

And there you have it.  Women gone amok.

Came home during a fierce rainstorm and saw a car wipeout into a guard rail.  We made it home with all purchases and dog intact.  Will have to make up for it tomorrow, but it was worth it!
Thanks Vaquerogirl!
