ASDFJKL?

Finally rode my horse! I think he needed it as much as I did. As I haltered him I was preparing for all the stuff I'd have to run through before getting on but there was something in his eye that said, "Just get the f*@? on me already." I sent him around a couple times, swapped his lead at the canter, and came to halt looking at me. Famous words out of my mouth, "F@#* it..." and I got on. Perfect? I think so. Off-balance and out-of-shape? The both of us... At least I know we can get back what we had though. It was definitely a good ride. Especially after cantering and asking for a one-rein stop, my reins (that I've been waiting to break) finally snapped. What'd he do? Nothing. Just waited. Luckily with all the halter work we've done we trotted around the ring again with one rein attached and I called it a night. Big hug, big cry (oh the depression), and put him away for the night (with cookies). Lunged Comic for a bit afterwards. Then went decided to stop by my mom's. Oh how eventful.

After spending about 45 minutes there I needed a beer. Hmm... Thursday? KB? KARAOKE! I love that there are some places I can just go by myself and chill without getting weird looks. Between there and Gillian's I know mostly everyone and if I don't, I say hi and get to know them. Free beer is good too, especially when you sing for it. Some nights I go I stay quiet and sing my usual tunes, but Thursday night I really grabbed life by the balls and cranked out some stuff I've A) Never done... and B) Never thought I could pull of. Leaving the bar with people shaking your hand and patting you on the back? I don't care if I'll never be in a band or do it professionally, I just like making people happy and have a good time. If only I was funny, I'd be a comedian.

Can't wait to head to the barn. Pony love.
