I thought I had better check in so that you knew I was still alive. I have just been a little busy with everything that is going on in my life. Hubby has been sick so needless to say I have been at the nursing home with him. Doctor appointment for me, horse show weekend, and a custom order to finish.
We had a very stormy night with thunder, lightening, wind, and rain. Some lost their electricity and we have trees down in the city. I was lucky and didn't lose my electricity. I know I didn't sleep very good with the lightening sounding to close for comfort. After having lightening strike the house a long time ago, I have never slept good when we have that kind of a storm. I just pray alot.
At least we finally got a weekend of horse show done that had previously been rained out the 23rd and 24th of August. It was so hot on Saturday and the boys weren't showing so I took Matt with me. He got to spend the day with grandma. We went out for lunch which I let him chose. He wanted Rib Crib, surprised grandpa with a visit in the afternoon, he played games on my computer, and went to get ice cream before we with back to the horse arena. His ice cream was chocolate with a brownie chopped up in it with some chocolate fudge on top mixed in. He loves chocolate. I had what was called a very berry ice cream. It had strawberries, blue berries, and raspberries in vanilla ice cream. Yummy.
Sunday was show day which grandma always loves watching. Matt showed them a new way to close the gate in trail. You let your horse use her nose to close the gate. Leave it to him. He got a first in western pleasure and in trail. He doesn't do games, but helped by putting the flag in the can for flags game. Brother and his partner got 1st in team barrels, 3rd in egg and spoon, and I didn't write down all of his times which I know that I should. It was a good time. Jake and Bailey did grand entry with Cleo and Fergie bare back. They just decided on the spur of the moment to do it that way. The horses were my grandsons and shows how good they can be.
Monday, I had to go to the city for a doctor appointment. Everything was o.k. except for cholesterol, he would really like for me to take meds for it, but I hate taking medications. I have to make up my mind what I am going to do. I didn't tell hubby because he would try to help me make up my mind. It has to be my decision. My Ekg was good and I had a good blood pressure after making the drive down.
Hubby has been sick this past week, I think that it was because of how they were giving his medications. They had some that was giving them with a medication, plus his body is still trying to adjust to the new medication that is lowering his blood sugars and ammonia level. It is not use to them. Really and truthfully it was very unusual that he function as well as he had with them so high. I just know that I will take it further if I need to do so because giving him a medication for nausea doesn't tell us why he is getting sick. .
The fingers have been busy and have to stay busy so that they don't get stiff. It is a pain to get older. You are probably tired of this and that so I had better close. I am waiting for my oldest grandson to put a belt on my rider and then we are going to work in the yard.
Have a great day and enjoy what is left of a three day weekend. Take care.
