Not just any vacuum but the Hoover Wind Tunnel Pet Cyclonic vacuum. Sounds serious, huh? Actually we were at Home Depot and I saw it and knew I had to have it, as our vacuum has lost that lovin' feeling when it comes to pet hair. The RD was thrilled. Right.
Seriously, the whole Father's Day thing is something the poor man has to create on his own. I'm the absolute worst at doing all the stuff you're supposed to do. I mean, I birthed the CO Boy, what could I possibly do to top that? So for his big day we went out to the stables and I rode a horse. Yes, I rode a horse. Not him. Just me.
But let me explain. I haven't ridden in oh, 15 years and I am in love with equines. Truly, I don't really need to ride them but I do need to be around them. So he got Miss Kim to give me a lesson today. I've wanted to go back and learn a lot of the Natural Horsemanship methods, but with the CO Boy riding regularly, there is only so much money to go around for lessons. At first I protested but then he made me shut up because he said I was ruining his fun.
Well, it really was fun. My fun.
And not just fun, but gosh it was truly relaxing. Sort of like yoga in paddock boots. My stress just melts away when I'm around horses. After I rode, he helped Miss Kim muck stalls and I groomed Bailey, MY horse-:). I combed all the tangles out of her mane and her tail. On the way home the RD says, "You know don't you, nobody else combs their manes or tails."
Well MY horse gets her mane and tail combed. End of story.
So my lovely husband watched me do ground work, ride and coo over Bailey.
Then I came home and used my Hoover Wind Tunnel Cyclone Pet vacuum!
