Hey LJ!  
I think it's been almost two years since I updated anything here so.... how's it going?

I was at @pokeahontas's wedding a couple weeks ago and sitting at the "LJ table" made me realize how much this little thing meant to me back in the day. I have made so many life long friends here and I'm so grateful.

So let's see what's new...

Still married to the same hot veteran turned teacher. I think he gets hotter every day. Age is treating that man SO WELL.

He probably wont be staying a teacher. Yeah yeah I know, it's sad. But that's life. They pay him nothing here, the kids are mean, the parents are worse, and he doesn't feel appreciated at all. He's looking at secret service work, and other government agency stuff. Who knows. I just want him to feel valued, and enjoy his job.

For my job, I moved into a new role (same company) in January and I LOVE it. I miss my old boss (I see you girl) but I needed a change and I haven't yet regretted the move. It's working out.

I'm hoping to start saving to buy a horse next year. I may end up purchasing a really well bred foal because I can't really afford the 50k horse I really want, and foals you can get for an affordable price, but you assume SO much risk. There is a lot that can happen to a foal in 3-4 years. I think we're going to try refinancing the house to save a little money.

But those 3-4 years may allow B and I to decide to have children or not. I feel like I'll be on the fence until I'm too old to decide anyway. Chances are my ovaries don't worry and my body will make the decision for me, which I wouldn't really mind. I like babies, and most children, but they are SO expensive and I have my own ambitions and dreams and I'm not willing to just dump them for some kid. My mom gave up her life for her children and it sucked her DRY. That is not me. I still need to live for ME.

Back to the horse. I haven't competed in *3* years, which is so not like me and I really need to get it back. I don't need to go to the Olympics but I really enjoy showing (after I've been sick in the bathroom repeatedly). But I've gotten to the point that I feel like I need MY horse, and stop relying on the kindness of people with amazing horses to get by. Just another reason the hubs needs a better job. $$$$$

We went to CO in August for the wedding and for a little vacation. It was really nice and beautiful. Definitely enjoyed the mountains more than Denver. But the Molly Brown house was a highlight. SO good.

I'm hoping we can go to Scotland next summer. Go BACK for me, and take B for his first time there. I need to share with him the amazingness of that place.

I'm still a crazy Outlander freak. I've been to 3 premieres. One in San Diego and 2 in NYC. I'm Obsessed, what can I say. The Gaelic coach for the show is actually coming to stay at my house in October and I'm taking him riding. Then we go on to a big gathering in Savannah for a few days. Should be fun. It's pirate themed for the Tybee Island Pirate Festival. Gotta piratize my renfest outfit.

Let's see what else - Oh! We adopted kind of a blind redbone coonhound. :P His name is Ray Charles and he has his own Instagram account (@Raytheblindcoonhound). He's sweet and lovely and almost 3 years old. My uncle the vet whelped his litter and then kept him and his sister. He's had surgeries on his eyes already, and has a little bit of vision but he PLOWED into my yesterday at a full run so the depth perception is lacking! He's in love with me and still runs away from B but we're getting there. He did a full 8 weeks of agility/obedience class and he's such a star. I love that little goof ball.

I guess that's enough for now. We'll see how long it'll take to come back next time!

If you have time when you're in Savannah, let me know! I know things get busy, but I'm right up the road!
