Feeling Fat

The summer is getting close to the end and starting to think about getting ready for the winter. I am actually not feeling so fat right now as summer is always easy to keep the weight off. With the temperature starting to cool, we are thinking about how to keep the weight off during the cooler days. I am checking out some safe diet pills to help out when the days are shorter. It would be nice to actually lose some weight this winter. We will see what happens this year. Maybe you will see me next summer slimmer than ever.

Horse Riding

I have never ridden a horse but I always like to see the clothes that the women wear when they ride horse here in the United States. Of course the proper title is equestrian riding apparel. There are some really great looking equestrian boots with chaps and cool helmet. I might have to learn how to ride just so I can get some of those clothes. I just love to go clothes shopping so any excuse to do so I jump at it. I might just shop for the clothes and never go riding on a horse just to have the chance to shop. But honestly I want to give the riding a chance because I do love horses also.

Kids in School

Guest post of the week by Brittany Booker

Having both my kids in college has been an adjustment for me much like I’m sure it is for a lot of stay at home moms like me. It’s tough to know what to do when your kids leave home and I feel like I didn’t prepare myself for this day very well. I miss my girls a whole lot and it’s tough not being able to talk to them face to face every day but it helps that we’ve got HughesNet Satellite Internet Service at home so I can email and instant message with them a few times a week. They’re only about 2 hours away so it’s not like they’re on a different continent but it may as well be! I miss them but I’m also feeling a lot of hardship when it comes to what I’m supposed to do with myself. I haven’t worked in decades and now that I don’t have any mom duties I kind of feel like a waste of space! I know it will all be better eventually but for now…

Help When You Need It

I bought a new car a few months back. I was happy to find out that there was an emergency roadside assistance that came with the car. It is a nice peace of mind when you know that if something goes wrong with the car then I can make a quick phone call and I have help in minutes. Most likely I will never need to use the service because my car runs great but you'll never know. I have actually never had any car break down. I guess I have been very lucky that way. Someday, my time will come when I am driving and I am going to need lots of help, I know there is assistance close is really a bonus to me.
