So, I can only write until my fiance wakes up and realizes I'm not in bed at 4:30 in the morning! But I have certainly been EXTREMELY MIA the last few weeks!

I have to blame most of this on starting a new job where I commute 35 minutes or so each way. I haven't even seen my horse since I started this job--when I leave it's dark, when I get home it's dark! So if anyone is going to complain about my absence, I'd like to think it would be him...in reality he's probably relieved.

Also, I have officially reached the point where I cannot ride. Bummer.

And on top of the job, last weekend was my baby shower! It donned on me about 3 weeks ago that we were about to have a baby shower and the nursery was FAR from complete, so we were not going to have anywhere to put our gifts once we got them!

So that has been the focus while I have been absent from BlogLand. I apologize! I know my advice (usually opposing all the other advice) has probably been missed around here! I do check in and read blogs when I can, but no time to comment when there's a crib to build! Is this how the rest of my life is going to work? I have a feeling it is.

When I woke up about a half hour ago, I thought, "Hmmm...I should really read and try to fall back asleep...or maybe I should go do something semi-productive and get used to waking up at all sorts of hours of the night!" A lot of the advice I got at the baby shower was to get as much sleep as I could now, because it was soon to be a thing of the past. So now that I've written the shortest blog in Palomino Girl history, I think I'm going to follow some of that advice and try to cruise back to bed.

Pictures of the baby shower to follow--while it was not horse themed, I did get a BEAUTIFUL boots and spurs quilt for the baby that I will have to show off...as soon as I find it in the pile of baby stuff sitting in the middle of the nursery!

Happy Trails--please, enjoy your horses for me. I am now living vicariously through you!

Oh, baby showers are so much fun!! I rode while pregnant too. I rode with my first son until I was 7 months. I stayed a lot smaller with him. :)

I can't wait to see what you got!! It's so much fun getting baby rooms ready.

And towards the end of my pregnacy I always was up. I couldn't sleep. I think it was my body getting me ready to be up all the time!! :)

One piece of advice given to me that I found helpful was to lay down and rest whenever the baby does at first. Later on, you'll use that time to get stuff done, but get as much rest as you can when you can at first.

Yes we want pictures!! LOL! I know My husband must think I am nuts when I am on the computer in the early am! It is one of the only times I can catch up! Almost time!! I think we need a shot of you being pregnant before the baby arrives!!

Hey Cuz, its a good thing you posted, I was about to send out a search party!! Can't wait to see the new merch, baby G is going to have the coolest cowgirl nursery EVER!
Will miss you at Betsy's later this month!
And hey, I haven't been riding much either and I don't have as good an excuse as you! XOXO

I was thinking the same thing as PG! SEARCH PARTY! Now if we could only find your MOTHER!
You should take pix of baby G's nursery so we all can see!

So glad to hear it was good things in life getting in the way of blogging time.
That poor, poor neglected pony...just kidding!

No advise on the baby front though-I had one, but barely remember how I survived it-hehe.

I also know that the time goes quickly. When I get out, it's dark and when I come back I have just one hour of light left ans so many things to do. Fortunately, the week-end exists. On Saturday, I can go to the club to ride and help to cure the horses. See you soon.
