Scarlett, congratulations, this qualifies you for upcoming Olympic Games! Oh, well, if you can't go to Greece in August can you at least win a Fodor's pin?

Cigale, have you tried hot bath for your hands? And MSM pills?

Rant: I have absolutely no plans this weekend.

Diana: Yay for you & your mare! I've been meaning to ask you what kind of horses you own & what discipline you show in? I am a former owner (someday I will have my horses again *sigh*) of a TB gelding I adopted from the racetrack. Showed Hunter/Jumper for most of my junior & high school career. Man, do I miss it!!

Rave: Horse people!

Thanks Statia and Cassidy! (Statia, I guess Saba will have to wait for another time...)

Cassidy, We have quarter horses and show halter (in hand) and western pleasure. I also have an appendix qh (1/2 thoroughbred and 1/2 qh) that I show in the hunter under saddle classes. I'm trying to break in some new boots, and I know you understand the torture my poor feet are enduring!
No time like the present to get back into it!

phitnessphan - we're going to Jamaica in a month also - where are you staying?

caribtraveler & jasper. You are making me sad I was not able to get anyone who would go with me to see Prince. (I did not want to go alone.)

I missed this post the past few weeks!!

Rave: I love my new job and we have an awesome deli and a Starbucks across the street.

Rant: We have Friday summer hours (get out at 1pm) but I'm still here because I have to fix the last person's mistakes!!!

Rave: This leaves me alone in the office to turn the radio up

Rave: Preparing for my move out to Long Island from Brooklyn and getting to do some serious summer cleaning

Rant: Went to The Container Store for 2 items and walked out with 20!! At least I'll be more organized now!

Rave: Still get to plan my trip to San Diego and Vegas for the week between Xmas and New Years since we have that week off at work.

Rant: Hotels are too high in Vegas for New Years, so we will have to rearrange it to spend Xmas in Vegas and New Years in San Diego.

Rave: Boyfriend is coming back in a few hours to pick me up after a week away in South Jersey for training.

Rant: His roommate who's moving out is a complete slob, so we will have some serious cleaning to do of his room when he leaves. Let's not even mention when he eats my BF's food!!

Rave: By labor day I'll be able to rest by own pool and jacuzzi right outside my front door.

Rave: It's Friday!! Have a good weekend all!!

Rave: My daughter qualified for a trip to Florida for a aerospace design competition.

Rant: I got up at 3am this morning to get her to her high school to catch a 4am bus.

Rant: Instead of driving home, I went to my office to sleep on a couch until starting work at 8am, and I BADLY overslept. I had scheduled an 8am appointment, and didn't wake up till a colleague called me at 8:20 to find out where I was.

Rave: Our receptionist totally saved my ***, letting people know I was running late, and rescheduling things so that it all worked out by 11:15 am.

Whew!
