Well, I’m changing my weigh-in day once again…it’s going to be on Sundays now instead of Mondays…it’s very hard for me to be up early enough before Clint leaves for work to nurse Megan both sides, and of course go potty before he leaves…I always do all this before I weigh-in, and I’d like to continue doing all that first so there’s no ‘extra’ weight anywhere…LOL…so I haven’t weighed in yet this morning, but will be back with an update… I have avoided the scale most of this week, so I’m praying that I’m down again
We took Abbie yesterday afternoon for her first Horse-riding lesson…she was AMAZING…She was a natural at it…they told us that usually when the ‘pee-wee’ lessons first start, that they just walk the child in circles on the horse and that was it, but she did so well for her first time, that they had her making the horse walk and trot (she LOVED it when she trotted), turning the horse left and right, walking over sticks…they only teach English Style riding, so they had to teach her to use her legs and go up and down as the horse trotted, and lean forward and up while she stepped over the sticks on the groud (more like poles laying down)…so when her lesson was over, she got to brush the horse, and feed her…she was in HEAVEN…I knew that horses were so amazing to her, but to see her with them and how fast she became comfortable with the horse, it was just amazing…so she’s going back next Saturday too We want to make sure that she’s interested in doing this and taking care of a horse first, as we want to eventually buy one and have it here at home.
Then we had a little scare last night. After her lesson, we came home, got changed and drove to Cleveland to visit my brother and his girlfriend…we got home around 9:30 p.m. and when we pulled in, our front door was open We have a regular lock AND a dead-bolt on that door, so we KNEW someone had been in our house We drove next door, called 9-1-1, and waited for the police to arrive…the first cop came and had a K-9…they went to the front door and the cop was yelling something to the effect of ‘This is the police…we have a K-9 and we will release him! If you are in the house come out now, he WILL find you!!!'’ He repeated that twice, then went into the house with him…they checked EVERYTHING in the house, closets, basement, you name it…there were no wet foot tracks in the entrance to the house, nothing…here, the dead-bolt was only latched half-way, which is weird for me, because I’m a FREAK about the doors all being locked/bolted at all times…And, it was so windy here yesterday, that obviously, the wind blew open the door So, thank GOODNESS it was a false-alarm, but I was shaking SO bad, just thinking someone had been in our house, and was STILL in there…what a horrible feeling…Abbie was so scared She kept asking about it, and talking about it, and wouldn’t go anywhere in the house by herself Very scary…but we’re all ok now…but how SCARY!!! So, payday we’re going to go out and get a couple more dead-bolts for two other entrances to our house now too…
