I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and Black Friday. (: I myself had a good Thanksgiving and a crazy BlackFriday.
For Thanksgiving I got to spend time with some family. I am the oldest cousin by a large number and I basically chill with my little 5 month old cousin Eli and 1.5 year old Emma. I love babies and since the children I babysit are getting old having younger cousins is fun.
For Black Friday mom and I went out. Walmart had towels on sale for $1.28 at 10:00pm (Thursday) and a digital recorded for $129 at 12:01 am (Friday). Mom said if I got her the towels she wanted A) The older towels would go to the barn for Pippi and Chance, B) I get the camera I wanted for shows and school so I can see what I look like in the saddle to help myself. Well we get to Walmart at 9:30pm and the towel box has people surrounding it at least two or three people thick and mom goes to get in line for my camera. A man is standing there complaining that he has 8 million billion children and he has no money and needs these towels, blah blah blah! and the only thing that comes to mind is "you could have stopped at 2 or 3 kids." 10:00pm comes and everything goes crazy! Some how I land on the ground and scratched but I got the towels. Mom said she wanted 10-15 towels and her new "friend" (who was standing in line for a camera too) wants 4. Well when I landed on the floor I just grabbed as many towels as I could. In the end I got 21 towels and I hurt my wrist and a few bruises and MY CAMERA (: Scoreeee.
I got home around 1:00am to wake up at 7:30am to feed the Pippi and head to work to work 9:00am - 7:00pm. But by then most of the crazyyyyyyyy people have gone home and back to bed. Work wasnt so bad, some people were a little rude, my feet got sore and I was hungry. A few ladies corrected me when I said "Happy Holiday" when they left. They said I should be saying "Merry Christmas". Well what if someone doesnt celebrate Christmas. Gahhhh.
And of course I worked all day on a super duper uber nice day out and didnt get to ride Pippi. On the bright side I got to ride her yesterday before it started raining. Pippi did well, seemed happy. I only jumped cross rails since it was wet-ish and I was a bit worried about her sliding in the grass. She took them easy enough but got bored so start rushing them and not picking up her left lead. I miss my indoor arena and getting to jump 2'6ish. Cross rails just don't do it for us.
I promise my next post will be more about Pippi and Chance. (:
