Some of the projects were super cool! If anyone has seen LOST, it was very darma-esque. The buildings are all weird and obscure- I really wish they had some posted description of the project.
The whole weekend I was asking my boyfriend "Don't you know how beautiful this city is?" He always blew me off. But SLO is seriously GORGEOUS! Just driving through it was fun (well as fun as a 6 hour drive can be).
I also won some girlfriend points, I showed the guys an easy yummy dinner, chicken alfredo pasta. I also made them some muffins which were delicious. Those little muffin mixes from trader joes are quick, easy, and most importantly yummy- I highly recommend them. I missed my horse dearly, but we did go to see the Cal Poly breeding stock. The stud is an absolute tank. I tried to find him on their website, but I think I only found his sire, 'Smart as the Fox'.
I believe the stud that we saw was 'Cinderellas Fox'. He's a stalky quarter horse by Smart Little Lena out of Foxy Freckles. Cute horse. The mares were all obviously well bred too- no fugly horses there.
So my weekend was fantastic, and I really needed a break from everyday stress. So I began my 6 hour journey home. I stopped in my old college town to fill up (I visited friends on the way up too). Then I headed down, back towards home. I was literally 5 min from home when I was rear ended turning right no red. I just discovered that the car will be $6,000 to fix. My car is a month old today, and I just made my first payment on it last week. Thankfully it was not totaled though, and both myself and the other driver are ok. I'm trying to look on the bright side (easier said then done). Unfortunately statistics are against me, and I was bound to get into an accident eventually. Right now, I have the support of my parents to help me out when I don't know what to do.
I'm just a little stiff, but heading out to the ranch regardless. I have two lessons to teach, and I was just hired to put some rides on two new horses. So wish me luck on this awful car adventure, and lets hope that I am not at fault, but also not count our chickens before they hatch.
