Rainy Uneventful Weekend

Sorry it's been so long since I have posted, but really don't have a whole lot to say. I did a lot of sleeping and vegging this weekend. It rained literally all weekend. My back was sore so I didn't go to the barn cause I know I would try and ride and it would just be a bad thing for me right now. My roomate had to work all weekend so she wasn't around to entertain me.

Saturday I bought my dad a couple of CD's and a card for his birthday and took the dogs over to their house for a little party. The food was awesome! My mom made two roasted chickens with stuffing and potato and vegetables and rolls and even made apple crisp for dessert! The dogs were excited to go over and visit as well.

Yesterday I went to the local mall to find a dress for the upcoming wedding in Virginia this week. I absolutely hate shopping and it totally kills me to try on things a million times. "G" asked if he could meet me there as friends and hang out while I shopped, I relented and we met up. I finally found a nice little purple thing that I thouhgt would be nice and it didn't hug all the wrong places on me. This pic is of me being silly while my roomate took my pic. These are the things we do when we're bored!
"G" and I went to lunch after shopping at his request. It was kinda awkward. He told me about all of the things he is trying to do in his life and how much he misses me and stuff, but really I know in my heart that he needs to do this on his own and I need to do my own things right now. It was sad and we both cried and stuff but atleast we are good friends first right now and are supporting one another.
I had no contact with Greg this weekend. He had his son all weekend and has come down with a bad cold, I really miss seeing and talking to him. Hopefully we can connect soon. He is on vacation all week so I'm sure he'll be around. Well that's about all. I have tentative plans to go to the barn tonight but we'll see how I feel by the end of the day. That's about all, will catch up again tomorrow.

So is the dress you are wearing in the picture the purple thing that you bought?

If so it look cute! I love purple and without trying to I half of the clothes I own are purple.

Strangely though I don't like purple on my horses...

Hope you back gets to feeling better, mine has gone back and forth. I now have a couple of good days usually followed a bad day. Yesterday I tried to jog - without doc's permission, I just felt like it was time so me and Roper jogged for a quarter mile (first time I have done anything other than walk since the accident) but alas I regretted it last night and today. My back is cramping up real bad and I have had to take a muscle relaxer at work which I don't like to do cause it puts me to sleep.

Oh PT this week, hoping it helps.

It sure is the dress Stephanie. I liked it it's dressy enough without looking like a prom dress. So sorry to hear about your back problems. Mine has been acting up lately too so I'm trying to take it easy, I don't need to injure it amy worse than it is. Just take it easy and before we know it we'll be looking back on this time and laughing about when we broke our backs at the same damn time.

Ya no kiddin...he he ha ha, remember the time... I can see it now. :)

Yes good choice for a wedding - not promish at all, but still looks great!

Just wondering because you watch the Animal Planet too...

Have you seen Whale Wars on the animal planet? I'm like kinda wanting to be mad at them because of course what they are doing is just as illegal - although not nearly as evil - as with the whalers are doing, but part of me is like "Yay! Go get em!"

How can you legally hunt whales in 2008 anyway?? WTF - doesn't anyone have a heart, it not like they are an indian tribe holding on to a "hunting tradition" or something.
