What is going on in my life: Finally all settled in our new place, love the pool and the views, still can't believe that I managed to fit all our stuff in here. Took some pictures and posted them for all to see.
Trading in one set of problems for another: So now that we have been here for one month there are somethings that I don't like about living here. We never thought we would have the internet problems that we have been experiencing, very frustrating. The pool pump for some reason has burned out twice, lucky for us they get it fixed right away. One of the washing machines takes Forever!!! to fill up, which means it takes a really long time to do a wash in that one, so I have learned to only use that one on a low setting, yes I can be taught LOL. When the snowbirds come back we will need another washer & dryer there is 2 there now but that won't be enough. At our old place we had our own washer and dryer in the guest bath. Thank god we decided to stay upstairs, the parking lot is right up to the building and you can hear the cars pull in at night, if you are downstairs your bedroom slider is right there, not a good design idea, I would put up a short wall to solve that problem. Plus it gets very dusty, it would be worse downstairs. Put my Biggest compliant!
they are putting up a new apartment building!!!!! only 2 units but it is across from us which means at night I will have to close my blinds so no one can look in, not happy about this at all!!! It is going up really fast and the workers are all very nice, just wasn't expecting this to happen.
Can you believe it: Billy still plays cards at our old apartment and he found out just the other day that the man who lived next door to us, the one that complained about our cats, which led us to move out, is going to be Moving, yes that's right he is moving out of the complex, I hear that management is not Happy with him, now they will have 2 empty apartments there, and right now it is the slow season.
Horses: I have bad news on this subject, my friend Sherry who owns the horses has decided to move back to Canada, so now the horses are up for sale. I can take Melaza if I want her, but owning a horse here is not something I want to do. Getting feed can be a problem, not like in the states where you just go to the feed store and get what you need, here you never know when they are open or if they will have the feed in stock, getting hay is difficult, Sherry had to buy a truck load of it, to last till the winter. Then there is the problem of not owning a place to keep her at, board here is expensive, yes I know you wouldn't think it would be but it is. If I keep her on the land she is on now it would be up to me to carry all the expenses and the feedings 2 times a day everyday. I love this little filly and it breaks my heart to think about not having her in my life, but it would be complicated to keep her, and I moved here to uncomplicate my life! So now I think I should look in the mirror and repeat : I Will Not Fall In Love With Another Horse !!!! I don't think that will work though as I tried Not to fall in love with Melaza but she just made it to easy. We did have someone come out and look at Dulce, the filly's mom and the lady really liked her so Dulce may have found a new home, we shall see. I will keep you all updated.
Weather: Well this sounds like a broken record, it is always beautiful here, sunny and warm, great for swimming. We are just waiting for the rains to start, we did have a small storm the other night, but nothing like we will be getting.
How can you stand it? My friend asked me the other day, wow how can you stand being out here in this heat working the horses? My answer, I'm from Florida, heat and humidity this is nothing, plus I don't think about the heat, just focus on playing with the girls.
Violence: One of my readers asked me the other day how I felt about living here after the recent events. Well we are not happy about the drug wars, I don't think people understand the vast and I mean vast amounts of money that is involved with the drug trade. Up until now it was always in someone Else's back yard, are we going to move, no! there is to many good points in staying and there is violence everywhere. I am a firm believer in when your number is up it's up, doesn't matter where you are.
Vacation: Going back to the states in July, looking forward to seeing family and friends, not to mention eating all the foods that we can't get here, I still want to take off 5 lbs before I get there, cause I certainly don't want to add them to my weight. Can't wait to go clothes shopping, Beals outlet here I come!
Didn't your Momma? It never ceases to amaze me how people don't think before they talk, didn't their momma ever teach them that " if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all" I mean is it so important for a person to have something to say that they don't care what they are saying? Or how about when you are talking to someone and they are not really listening because they are thinking about what they want to say, has that ever happened to you? I think observing people is very interesting, you can see who has the A personality, who is having a bad day etc. Maybe I like observing people now because of the horses, you can learn so much from them by just watching, I often say your horse will tell you everything you just need to learn how to listen to them.
Wrap it up: Ok I think that should do it for now, time to add the pictures, I was going to do that first but I don't usually so I forgot to. Oh well hope they load for me. Till next time, and I will try and write sooner, Kip!
