It was OK

We had our tack swap last weekend. Tack Swap Day is usually a warm sunny but sometimes windy. This time it was overcast and cold and the wind was cold. I shivered for three hours. I sold some stuff and bought some really nice hind boots with two Velcro straps. I can put them on with less bending.

There were some safety stirrups which I wanted but did not buy. The kind with hinges. I regret it. I am trying to find the person to buy them from her. At 150.00, they were out of impulse buy range.

The decision to sell my show clothes was a big one. They didn't sell, of course. They were also priced out of impulse buy range. But people know I have them and they have seen them. I think I could make this decision because I am enjoying driving, so I don't feel that the loss of dressage and the limitation of riding is like death.
Today it the second day of having a sick kid home from school. Ew.

And I feel a little headachy, so I took a Neurontin. Now my space/time is feeling screwy.

My computer is up and running now, but I have to download HTML-Kit again and do that first. Boring.

It's so hard not to impulse buy sometimes isn't it. Sounds like a fun day though. Feel better.
