I thought that I had pretty well eliminated stress from my life by graduating and working less and all, but oh well. I got Izzy out yesterday and turned her out since I was out of town Sunday. She galloped and bucked and cavorted all around, so I let her be. It was blowing like 40 miles an hour, so I chickened out on riding. I was running late as it was and with all the other factors, I figured it wasn't worth it to try and force something.

Today it's pouring rain. Also, my husband is home sick. Also, I have to work. Also, I'm going to visit my grandpa. Also, I have a ticket to the game tonight. Also, I HAVE to go to the barn because the nutcase gelding next to Izzy has started her chewing and the B.O. isn't super happy about that.

Tomorrow looks even less likely for squeezing a ride in.

None of that would bother me, except I have a lesson scheduled for Saturday. It does bug me to pay for a lesson when I haven't been riding, so I need to RIDE.

Oh well. We'll figure it out, right?


  1. Take a deep breath and just let the world take you along. When things pile up like that, thinking too much about it all just makes it harder.

    It's all going to work out just fine. *hugs*

  2. Cringe... this sounds like a scary to do list, but it will all get done. I hate feeling like that too, life getting in the way of riding and all that. Hang in there (and I hope your husband is feeling better).

  3. Sounds like you are having one of those make-it-work moments. Wouldn't it be so great if the only thing we really had to spend our time on was horses?
    The wind can be so scary. It always unnerves me. I detest it!

  4. You wouldn't be whipping her it would just be an annoying tap. I don't think that your going to be hitting her just a little Hey I'm here and you do what I want kind of tap. After a while she would get used to it and you won't even need the whip. A tap isn't abuse, a hit is.
