I am closing in on one of those ends of decade birthdays. (No happy dance there.) It doesn't seem possible when I don’t feel a day over 33. I can do all the things I could do then except one: stay up late. I start to fade about 10:00 pm. Any later than 11:00, I become incoherent. I am a terrible mother because I can't even stay awake long enough to make sure my teenager makes it home okay. (Please don't tell him that.)
I got a coupon in the mail for a free pair of Victoria Secret underwear. Now that’s a new marketing gimmick. I can’t help wonder what the demographics were and why I was on the list. Now is not the time in my life when I worry about what kind of underwear I have on or what they look like other than ensuring I won't be embarrassed should I get into an accident, and I won't. I have to admit I got more excited about the recent $5 off Nutrena feed coupon . But I am slightly amused over the opportunity to get free underwear. I would definitely use it if the nearest VS store was at least in my neighborhood but doubt I’ll drive over 40 miles for a free pair of undies. But I did put it in my purse just in case.
The last few days has it started to warm up to the 30’s. It’s been a welcome relief from the single digit temperatures we had for most of February. It seems that after the last storm in January, we just all hunkered down and went about our business in the coldest winter of our generation. Not like we had any choice in the matter. The drifts around our home are still huge. I’m curious how long it will take to melt and wonder where all the water will go. It’s going to get messy! I can't imagine when the trails will be dry enough to ride. But can't imagine going much longer not riding.
The Big Fat Lying Weatherman has teased me with the possibility of temperatures in the 50’s this weekend. Wow! That's tank top weather! Maybe I'll get a new bra at VS, too!
Twelve days to go until Nebraska Horse Expo….
