2012 Review

I was going back through the pictures on my phone and realized that this was a pretty awesome year. Therefore, I shall post a recap here.

* Cavalia! - In 2012 I decided to get back to my roots and do more horse related things. The first step was to go to this beautiful and amazing show that came through town. I loved it. It was magical and gorgeous. My favorite parts were many but one that really stands out was the aerialist couple dance while on horseback. It was lovely.

* I quit troupe Adderstone! - Holy smokes that was a difficult decision but I'm still glad I did it. Nothing about dancing was making me happy anymore and after all the stupid drama with D&S, I just couldn't take it. I am no longer taking dance classes. However, that doesn't mean I quit dancing. I performed with my girls at Dante's several times this year doing tribal. I also worked with Juliet to create a special Halloween piece and then ended up getting recruited into doing a holiday show with Sibyl and Juliet. It was Kidnap the Sandy Claws. How could I say no? Plus my costume turned out to be freaking adorable: http://www.flickr.com/photos/subactive/8281913570/in/photostream

* I volunteered at a Horse Rescue! - In March, I convinced Patrick to volunteer with me at a horse rescue. We had a pretty good time, I fell in love with a horse, that horse got adopted and I was sad, we spent more horsey time, and all was good until August. On August day we had time off and went to the stable and that was the day all hell broke loose. The found was stealing from the charity and not using money how she said, not keeping accurate records, and on and on and on. Some people decided to try and keep the rescuse running anyway and we offered to help out more. They asked if we wanted to be on the board of directors and so we applied and had a long ass meeting with them, where they finally revealed a huge amount of debt that we would be personally responsible for as members. Well that killed it for us and it was a good thing because they decided to fold. The one lady is starting something new but it's not a rescue and I'm feeling pretty burnt on the whole thing anyway so I don't really have any plans to get involved there. Overall, this was a very disappointing experience but I think it was beneficial to get a small glimpse into what goes into running a charitable organization.

* We went to Wyoming! - Patrick and I went to Wyoming for the scattering of my Grandma's ashes. We had a nice time and every time I go back there I start imagining living there. It's pretty stupid considering there are zero job options in that town. We spent time in the mountains and I got to hang out with Tanya and meet my Great Nephew. Are you kidding me, I am a great aunt now.

* We went to Colorado! - Patrick and I spent a week in Colorado Springs to visit his sister and her family. We originally were planning to go to the Star Wars convention in Florida but there was a huge fire and Mary's family had to be evacuated and it was crazy. So I think it reminded PJ that he should spend time with the family he actually associates with because time is short and you never know what can happen. That was fun. I had a hard time with the altitude and it was an adjustment spending that much time with children. We also went to a Bronco's pre-season game and that was a blast.

* We finished another 31 Days of Halloween photo project! - Whew. I don't know how I feel about this one. I feel like my ideas are drying up. Which makes me wonder why I am considering doing a 365 photo project... but I am - maybe starting on my birthday.

* Isabelle made it through another year. Sadly she has had some new problems crop up. After we came home from CO and picked her up from the vet she was just a huge ball of snot. Totally congested and flinging snot around like crazy. After many visits to the vet and the allergy vet, we ended up at a specialist. I ended up spending the most amount of money possible to get her tests done and in the end they knew nothing. So that was annoying, but they did get her on some anti-biotics that finally helped. She is still sneezing and a little snotty but nowhere near as bad as it was. We'll see how she does as time goes on. She will be 15 in April!

* Ichabod had a couple more seizures this year. We haven't gone back to the vet because we know they can't do anything but put him on meds and we don't think he has them frequently enough to warrant putting him on meds he will have to take for the rest of his life. We'll keep an eye on that too. Other than that, him and Monster are happy and healthy. Crazy as always.

I think that's all I can come up with for now! Happy 2013!

Snow!

So while Patrick and I had a weekend free of commitments, we decided to start a brand new project.  Rather than finish projects already started...  hahaha!  I've been planning on building some sort of patio space underneath the deck.  Because it is a muddy and disgusting mess.  The prior owners had set gravel down but over the years the dirt took over and it was really just a weed/mud pile. 
Pictures!!! )Damn, I am sore today!!!!

So this is why I have to make it a goal to go shopping for clothing. I've had this sweater so long that I ripped the elbow out yesterday. ~sigh~ I really hate clothes shopping.

p.s. Yes I took this picture in the bathroom at work! :)

On Sunday I decided to harvest some rhubarb and make a coffee cake. I found a recipe where I had all the ingredients on hand and just went for it. Holy cow! This stuff was tasty! In fact it is already gone! I'm definitely saving this one.

It's finally here! Friday!!!! I got so much sleep last night that I am feeling quite a bit better. The Rosehips show was so awesome on Wednesday. I'm always so impressed by the stuff that people come up with. Such creativity and talent around here! I got home around 12:30am which made two nights in a row. I had spent about 6 hours at home in a 24 hour period and 5 of those were sleeping. ~lol~

Because I fell asleep on the couch around 8:30pm last night, I missed the Machanismus show where Deidra was performing. I'm bummed I missed it but I really needed the sleep. :)

Tonight involves last minute costuming and show prep for tomorrow. I've got to hand sew the last of my maribou feathers onto a silver panel skirt. Intrigued? Come see the show tomorrow at the Spring Fairy Festival. We are scheduled to go on at 2:45pm.

Haha! I just realized that this is very similar to my LJ icon. ~lol~ I like to pretend to eat stuff I guess...

How many times will I reorganize the basement before everything has a place and every room in this house has a function?

I made it! My parents were at a car show in West Yellowstone and I beat them here. Now I'm just chilling in their house. I've never been here before. They sold their dream house to move to MO and so that belongs to someone else now.

I have no solid plans yet. Just going to take it day by day. Izzy is a little lost but doing well. She is the cutesy car trip buddy ever!

Got up at 4:30 in order to get Patrick to the airport. Coffee pot crapped out so no caffeine. Ouch. Only stopped 4 times on the way to Butte. Once for gas and three rest area visits. Izzy just slept in her bed. She's a pretty good passenger. Now I am showered and watching Cops and feeling very tired. Good thing it's an hour later here.

6 more hours of driving tomorrow and then I'll be in Worland. I am a little nervous about what kinds of memories that will dredge up that I have long since buried. I also hope to avoid people I know. Pretty hard in a town like that. Overall I am excited.

I had weird phone issues and both phones stopped working. Luckily it wasn't too serious and after connecting to the hotel wifi was able to troubleshoot and resolve. Had a few panicked moments when I couldn't let my parents know I arrived safe but it worked out.
