So, what do a$400 plus sudden vet bill, old bushes and opportunity have in common - not much on the surface, I am sure; but if you can pardon the pun and dig a little deeper, a few life lessons and the opportunity to have something of. First, that pesky vet bill. Seems Maverick got too close to a piece of loose metal in the barn and voila`! lots of stitches in his nose and a chance for my daughter to get her real career goal uncovered and a plan for the future made. For years I heard her say that there was no way she could ever think of becoming a veterinarian - no to the blood and injections and all that went with it - then she had to deal with her own horse's rather messy and gory injury and assist the vet with the repair and the follow up care - and presto - the truth came out that she really did want to care for the animals AND SHE COULD! praise to her 4H coach who did the final convincing - that if she could get into vet school - Rachel could do it too! So I figure my vet bills will shrink - in about 10 years! Maverick, if you are left with a scar it will be a proud one! Oh and those bushes - one day this week my husband was working out and decided that removing those old bushes counted for just as much of a workout as going to the gym - presto - I can now work on re doing the front of our home and I can see! without the older bushes. So, just when you think something is a big problem or a pain - just wait to see what becomes of it. I am constantly surprised when a problem one day is just the beginning for something better.

New week, new resolve.
January is too hard for real resolve, sure the calendar said new year - but I don't feel it until I have to confront the winter's crud collection in and around my home. YIKES! so I am resolving to tackle one area at a time - and let the family in on the 'fun' and lighten up around here (ok, there's a change I can believe in) Not just me personally ( I got a few trainer session for my birthday [yes I asked for them]) but the stuff around here too. Someday I will have to leave this house (hopefully for warmer climes) so, why keep what I don't like, don't use or WANT to use - Somethings I do like and use, just not everyday.
Susan Boyle is my inspiration!

Admit it if you are with me - sure, I might say how I love "Sleepless in Seattle" - but my #1 Chick type e chick flick is "Ever After" Drew Barrymore rescues as much as she is rescued thank you very much! But if you want to really turn my head, give me a good action adventure any day of the week - Some of my favorites, after of course the Star Wars Movies: The last Boy Scout, Lethal Weapon series, The Die Hard Series, True Lies, The Italian Job, The Bank Heist with Clive Owen.....the list goes on, heck I even loved Unforgiven by Clint Eastwood (Come to think of it, I like a lot of his movies) So HOLLYWOOD - give me strong men with equally feisty women and I know you can make the box office sing. This summer holds promise - Star Trek, X men Origins, ect Bring on the popcorn!

So today the porch was opened and I think the rest of the family ate there. It's a rite of spring for our family. A welcome sign of a positive change - not just change for change. I don't like much of what is coming out of government lately, but life on a personal level should not be impacted - every day, however tax day is impossible to ignore. I find myself avoiding the daily "news" on the TV, the radio in the car is enough for me. I have to confess, along with all my fun in the Star Wars universe, I have also become enamored with the works of Stephanie Meyer (Twilight) So I've been reading a lot more than writing - but my resolution for my 47th birthday is to seek more balance in my life - so - More Writing!
Here's to spring
