It’s Been A While

20140106-120110.jpg

I’m sorry guys! It’s been forever, hasn’t it? I’ve been pretty busy. In the time since I last wrote we moved, but in a way, we’re not settled. We have unpacked and all, but there’s still stuff to be handled. I sold Lady and Jazzy, because it was only feasible to keep one horse since I would have to board. Rivver has the best possible home that she could have without living with me. She is only a few minutes down the road and I see a her at least once a week. She isn’t as clingy as she used to be, but she still gets excited to see me. She’s 7 months old now. I can’t believe it.

I got my license, finally. *insert clapping sounds* I also managed to snag my dream job! I haven’t officially started yet, but I am looking forward to mucking stalls and getting paid for it!

This winter we have already had 3 snows! We’re just grateful that it isn’t an ice storm like we typically get. Snow seems to melt a bit faster. And we haven’t lost power.

2013 was a very DIFFERENT year for us. It wasn’t the typical year. I’m not sure what a typical year is, but 2013 wasn’t it. It’s sort of ironic. In the beginning of 2013 we had all complained that 2012 had been a boring year and nothing exciting had happened. We wanted 2013 to be much more eventful, and boy it was! Just not quite in the way we had hoped. I do have high hopes for this year though, not sure what or why, I just feel pretty good about it.

    Pants on the Ground? Allons-y!

    20130523-233332.jpg

    Mom and I always enjoy the times we get to fellowship with different exhibitors when we are at homeschool conventions. We love to go out to dinner after convention hours. My only request was that we not have Mexican food. I am not a huge fan of it, although it’s Mom’s favorite. We ended up needing a ride back to the hotel though, so we were stuck at the liberty of whatever the exhibitor taking us wanted. They, of course, wanted Mexican. Well, I just went with the flow. As it turned out, we ended up eating with a British couple. Like, legit Brits. Like, moved to the U.S. from London 6 months ago. Lets just say, awesome. It was fun to talk to them. We talked about the differences between American English and British English. I.E. She asked for a “sachet” of sugar to go in her tea. A napkin is called a “serviette”. It was very interesting to hear. The word that made for the most interesting conversation was the word, “pants.” Pants, in the UK, would be what we call…

    20130524-003359.jpg We decided that definitely brought new meaning to the song “Pants on the Ground.”

    Of course, how could you not meet British people and talk about Doctor Who??? If you have not watched Doctor Who, you are missing out!

    For those of you who are Whovians and would like to know, my favorite Doctor is Eleven (Matt Smith). I just don’t get Ten (David Tennant)

    20130524-001216.jpg “Allons-y!”

    My favorite companion is most definitely Amy Pond (Karen Gillan).

    20130524-001453.jpg “Raggedy Man, I remember you and you are Late. For. My. Wedding!”

    And… My ABSOLUTE favorite character is River Song (Alex Kingston).

    20130524-002309.jpg “Hello, Sweetie.” Oh! Oops. “Spoilers.”

    Also, if you are a Whovian you NEED to watch this video with David Tennant and Catharine Tate (or Ten and Donna Noble) But, if you aren’t a Whovian, it won’t make total sense, as a fair warning.

    What’s your opinion of British culture?
