Well, it's the day after Thanksgiving, and I'm supposed to be off work. Oh, I'm at home, but I just got a call from the office asking for my help. I could try to summon the Spirit of Thanksgiving and be thankful to be needed and wanted, but I am not very good at this holiday. For every thing that there is to be thankful for, I can find 5 more to complain about. I guess that means I'm only 20% thankful. Food...I have plenty of that, but I also have been given too much of it. I have plenty of clothes, but I also have an overabundance of those. I have more weight, more stress, less room... But moving on. It's time for Christmas now. And that one's not much better as far as holidays go. I suppose this time of year is hard for everyone. I don't know why God gives us cold, short, dark days. He could make everything work without the annual death. Perhaps it's part of our punishment. Was there no Winter before the Fall (of man)? Winter before Fall...ha, I made a funny! I guess Winter always comes after the Fall. Wow, that's deep...

And today is Rodeo Day in Saint Jo, Texas!! I will be wearing my cowboy hat, even though the most Western thing that I do is get on my horse for about 10 minutes and ride around the arena a couple of times. Most of my day will be spent running back and forth putting out toilet paper and making sure our workers have everything that they need.

My world is kinda funny. Of course in the romance department, there is none. But I have been asked for a phone number by a guy recently...oh, not for my number, he was wanting another gal's number. Which is funny, because just like in the books, she also has two kids... Maybe I need to warn them about making sure the kids are outta the way when they back up their vehicles... But I digress. No, my life is currently filled with Saint Jo Rodeo preparations. Only 9 days until the show! I'm a little less nervous about most of it this year since this is my 2nd presidential undertaking, but I am a little more worried about the finances this year. I was not paying attention to that stuff last year. But I know it will be fun, and I'm looking forward to it, so that's a good thing. I wish that the rodeo was the end of the stresses and responsibilities, but the three weekends after our rodeo will be filled with Forestburg then Denton then our August playday. After that we'll have to be getting ready for our chili cookoff in September, and by then the Republican Women's club will be started back up again, so I'll have that to deal with. I just watched a video talking about how God puts people in leadership positions. It was talking about government, but I thought of myself and my presidential positions. Well, if God put me there, then I guess that's how it's supposed to be. Most of the time it feels like some kind of crazy joke that I'd be intentionally put in charge of anything. Makes me want to roll my eyes just like I'm looking at some silly romance novel...LOL ;)

Sunday, April 23, 2017
Welcome to April, huh? Except that somehow the month is almost over already!?! How did that happen?! Of course I have been busy with work, but I'm also very busy with the CCRW (I'm already about a week late in getting my President's letter written for the newsletter - that's the next thing on my to-do list), and the SJRC keeps me even busier (we have a playday set for next Sunday, then a regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, a trail ride on the following Sunday, and someone [me, I reckon] needs to get rodeo tickets printed before the Queen Candidates' meeting on June 17). Not to mention the slow process of getting all the paperwork organized to get our 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status re-established. I wish I had time to hang out with my friends!! But I did get to see some good friends this weekend including Jamie at LeTourneau in Longview when I was in town for the Athletic Hall of Fame induction banquet on Friday, and I also got to see Marcy at Goree in Huntsville and Catrina at Hobby in Marlin. So today will hopefully be my "catch up day" when I get everything caught up and organized. Ha. As always, thank you for listening to the status of my life. I hope that you're finding time to get out and enjoy the beautiful Spring weather. :)
