Winter Sports with Intertwined Technicolor Rings (tm)

You might notice it's been quiet around here.

You might think that's because it's cold AF and I'm sick AF and second winter is the f****** g****** worst.

That's a fact.

However. Champions are made in the offseason or whatever, so here's a medal-level breakdown of activities around here.

Halter-plate attaching: SILVER MEDAL

This could have been a craft project if it didn't involve the actual use of tools, but it did and since craft projects involve beverages and tools involve clear-headed-ness, it unfortunately does not get it's own write up. That said. I probably would have done a write up had I gotten to use my beloved air riveter because power tools are where it's at.

Oh and it's technically only silver medal level because I didn't have lock-tight for the chicago screws so I probably need to get some. Annoying.

Dressage-practicing: GOLD MEDAL

Ok yeah maybe we only did this once but 1) it was with a media person and 2) ZB continues to blow me away with her willingness and ability to retain information.

CRUSHED IT.

fanceh
Indoor-arena-demolition-derby: GOLD MEDAL

Yeaaaaaaah so if I don't feel like riding (hello 14f this is why you have no friends), I just let ZB wander the arena and knock shit down while I laugh hysterically and take video.

Possibly I am no one's favorite boarder. Possibly I don't care.

fanceh
Bareback-toodling: SILVER MEDAL

Yeah for real I need to do this more.

ha yes zb wins
Mounting-block-fixing-aka-horse-legos: GOLD MEDAL

For whatever reason, ZB's favorite thing in the world is to flip the mounting block over and push it around. I have thus far discouraged her from climbing up on it as well, but she'd be game for that too.

Snuggling-with-teeny-dog: GOLD MEDAL

Buying-stock-in-dayquil: champion of the world

Marathoning-entire-netflix-show-and-reading-two-500+page-books-in-a-weekend-and-a-sick-day: ugh yup welcome to my life.

Hopefully back to our regularly scheduled programming here shortly.

You know, after the next stupid storm dumps a foot of snow on us YES IN MARCH WTF.

  1. I would feel sorry for your weather but I distinctly remember getting mocked when it didn't get above 5 degrees here for like, 2 weeks 😋

    I am sorry you were sick, although marathoning Netflix and reading sounds like heaven to me. Only if I can breathe though 😉 glad ZB is racking up those medals!

  5. Winter is stupid. If it were an olympic athlete it would be DQ'd amidst a doping scandal. FACT.

  7. The mounting block shenanigans crack me up. What about one of those horse soccer balls?

    1. Amazon keeps trying to sell me a 6' tall inflatable soccer ball. I'd have it already if it cost $20 instead of $100. #struggleisreal
