The weekend

I was so happy when 4:30 came today and I have a couple of days off. It has been a rough three weeks working short handed. My poor legs hurt from up and down the steps when I got home.
We have managed to keep going with basically three of us and a part-time one. We just do what ever we have to do.
Tonight we went out and watch Matt ride his pony in walk trot down and back and the barrels. It was the first time  he had ridden all by himself. Daddy led his pony in the arena and then he was off. It was so cute. When we left he was riding Cleo with a little girl riding double with him. I have pictures, but I need to do some editing of them. He plays t-ball in the morning and then the horse show starts at 11 with both boys riding. Then again on Sunday starting at one p.m.  in the afternoon.
Tomorrow is also the tractor cruise for charity. We have to go a different route to the t-ball game because of it.They are going on the highway that I normally take to the baseball field.
Last night I didn't know whether I would work today. I was sick after I ate lunch and I didn't eat supper. I don't like tasting the food the second time around and living in the bathroom. I don't  think I want anymore from where we got lunch. I am glad that I didn't eat all of it.
Tonight was a beautiful night for being out side with the breeze blowing and about 74 degrees. The temperature has gone up since we got home. So many people getting flooded and roads closed in our area. Your know what hurts is that it is not because of mother nature, but man made because of water being released from dams that is suppose to control the water. How would you like to have a new home on the lake not moved into yet that has over 8 feet of water in the garage area. They built the living quarters 10 feet off the ground. I know when I heard they were building there. My comment was it floods.
My heart goes out to all of those effected by the floods, tornadoes, and bad weather. This year has really been different.
Have a wonderful weekend.
