Then my other daughter arranged for me to have my first riding lesson. After some practice and a lot of butt pounding, I can now finally say that trotting is not soo bad. Thanks to her guidance, I no longer feel like I’ve been spanked every time I get off a horse. Just this week she decided it was time for me to learn to canter, another first for me. It was all good while riding in a straight line. But eventually you do have to turn. Oh boy, I lost control and was flopping around like a Raggedy Ann doll while shrieking like a scared little kid on a runaway roller coaster. The good news is I stayed on and was entertainment for the other riders at the barn. My take away from the experience: next time, double up on sport bras.

Yesterday, while riding in the passenger seat of my car, I hammered out an email on my phone. My permit-carrying 15 year-old daughter was driving. Her new boyfriend was in the back seat. Somehow, HE was in control of the music, the volume and the play list. What they called so cool, I called scream-o DEVIL music. Needless to say I was a little distracted but still tried tapping the email to my critique group. I wanted to let them know that I was having trouble with a chapter in my novel and wouldn’t be submitting anything for this weeks meeting. Before hitting the send button, I realized the phone auto-corrected my message. I quickly deleted it and wrote a generic, “No submission this week,” for the sake of giving the ladies adequate notice.
