I first got up and got my horses ready to take to the vet. They are required (in my family) to get their yearly injections and coggins test for travel! Horses can catch so much and with us traveling, they can get real sick and either cripple them for life or they can even die, so it is important to me to keep them healthy!
I got to the vet, then my wonderful vet looked down and says, "You have a flat" on my trailer......Lol as I always do when it all hits at once, I left there and went and ordered me some new trailer tires! :O
Now back to the "new year", this is the time the barrel racing associations are kicking up full swing, so that is when I consider this a new year for barrel racing!
I looked on the Internet for prom picture "hair do's" for BB. With her dress that most of you have already seen, we are trying to find a do that will match the dress. If you have an idea, please send me the picture! We are welcome to other ideas!
Last night I made the dough for "The Pioneer Woman's" homemade donuts! So I am getting ready to fry the donuts and eat away! OMGosh, that means I have to run today to burn off that donut fat! Pooie

Working on my Artifact paper due in April for 'one' of my 3 classes
My kitchen table and bar are covered with my books and papers for my paper! (I already have 45 pages on it)
It is true 'exhaustion' sat in on me. I knew this year would be very hard for me, my daughters senior year at school, football and basketball season (she was manager for the team and starter for the basketball team) and yes, we made every game home and away. I had 5 graduate classes that I am taking (2 for fall and 3 classes this semester), our big conference that I take 8 students to and it usually take 2 months to build the booth, presentation and projects. Plus, much more, taking care of the family, home and still trying to breath and hear my heart beating! Being the mother explains all!

My toe stumping didn't last long, Couper went off to play with Mickie!
I then go to the office to get ready to judge when I noticed the Sr High Girls basketball coach has already had his head shaved by the Jr High boys coach! I got the heck out of there, I was afraid I would be next~
The B word........ BAD! Wednesday I started feeling physically bad, we were trying to get all our work completed before we had spring break this next week, so the students were overloading me....... the headache started Wednesday night, couldn't sleep.....stomach was killing me, then Thursday when I got up at 5 a.m. I realized that I had just fall'en asleep! I was feeling worse, had a student totally go off on me, so by my last period class I must have looked bad, cause I had one of my big football players come to class and say, "Mrs. A do you need a hug? You look like you need one" and gave the sweetest hug, so after this class...... I had prep! NO, wrong....my boss came through and says you have some visitors, we are bringing some community visitors by so they can see what awesome things your kids do!

I took the challenge! The challenge to exercise at least 3x's a week for 30 minutes, that is the 'true blue challenge'! All the teachers at school have groups and we hope the WOW team (yes, this is my team) wins! So, we have been playing basketball 2x's a week for 30-45 minutes each time, plus warming up, then we started volleyball last night! OMGosh, I have been sleeping on a heating pad, I have muscles that are sore that I wasn't even aware that I had! All our activities are documented through the Blue Cross/Blue Shield website
I keep telling myself "No Pain, No Gain"! I am having a blast! WE are having so much fun and since we are playing with teachers from our district, I have met some wonderful teachers that I probably would have never got to know! So this is definitely a plus all the way around! Just hope I can walk soon without looking like I am bowlegged!

This dress we also felt that it was comfortable and elegant (soft), this was her second choice dress, which I liked it also, but it was similar to most prom dresses! BUT we kept it as one of our choices!
You can't see him, but her boyfriend is on the right side of her, waiting patiently and giving his honest opinion on the dresses she tried on! Can't believe he went shopping with us!
Well after 2 hours of trying on dresses, and finding out that we couldn't get her first choice in her size, there was another dress made from the same designer of the first choice dress (1st picture above) almost identical except the front had some sways cris-crossing, gathered tightly same style and material, again very elegant and beautiful dress! We tried it on and POOF this was our conversation in the dressing room:
BB - "Mom this is to tight"
mom - "No, this is the way it is suppose to fit, so your boobs don't fall out"
BB - "Can you get it zipped?"
mom- "Yes, I am trying to figure out how to clip the top part to hold your boobs in!"
BB- "It feels tight"
mom- "Yes, you will see when I get it zipped"
BB- "Yes, it does feel better"
mom- "OMGosh, this is beautiful, I like this as much as the first one, PLUS, it fits and your size"
BB goes out to see what Steven and the girls think! They love it! EXCEPT....she would let me take a picture of it on her, she says, "you can wait until we get home!" This is the best I can do, by it hanging on the hander! Still a beautiful dress! Just can't believe we got WHITE and SILVER! Never say Never!
