It feels so weird to have one, after having gone years without one. Aside from being Mom, I have things to do regularly. I’m still getting used to it. Yesterday we went to a small town about 40 miles from here to a 4-wheelin event that took place on a 2500 acre piece of land. That night, they held a Neal McCoy concert. We got there a little after 1pm and started riding the trails. After a few hours, I started feeling one of my infamous headaches coming on. Being accustomed to the frequency of my headaches, the S.O. brought some BC powder along for me. We stopped for a bit, ate and I sipped on my Lifewater (i love that stuff!).

For the past week, the weather has been bad. By bad, I mean that we’ve had freezing temps all week. Thursday night a winter storm came through so it sleeted all night. Friday morning I got up and my car was literally frozen. I took pics too. It took me about 40 minutes to get the ice off my windowshield/windows.

Anyway, back to my story. Because it freezed over Thursday and Friday, I guess people were afraid to make the trip out there Saturday. Only about 70 people showed up and it was butt cold. There was still ice on the ground, very muddy and of course, freezing. But, no way I was going to miss the concert. Riding the 4-wheeler was fun, but it’s not one of my favorite things to do. It makes me a little uneasy to be traveling speeds up to 60mph out in the woods. When we stopped to address my headache and empty tummy, Neal McCoy was doing a sound check. So along with about 10 other people, we stopped to listen for a while. After that, we hit the trails again before the concert. Like I said, it’s jsut not my thing. I like to stay safe as opposed to being reckless, but that’s jsut me. After a couple of more hours, we loaded up the 4-wheeler and went to the outside stage area – still covered in East Texas’ notorious red mud. The concert was probably one of the best I’ve ever been to. Not only because there were only about 70 people there, but because he put on one of the best shows! He was funny and interacted with the fans and jsut has an amazing voice. After jsut 3 songs, he sang our song. I had to remind S.O. that we even had a song back in the day, funny thing is that he was the one that had picked it out all those years ago. When he started singing it, I told S.O. that was our song and he held me tight and started singing along. I was surprised he even remembered the words (country is not his choice of music).

Today, I’m super soar from riding the 4-wheeler. For the most part, other than having the kah-kah scared out of me, we had a good time 🙂
