It's that time of year again. You know, weather gets nasty, industry slows down, hours get cut, all that good stuff. I have more pony time, which is a perk, but sometimes (like Christmas morning), I find myself driving to the barn and trying to figure out how on earth I'm going too come up with the money to buy gas the next day. As I concoct a scheme that is almost plausible, I hear a noise.
Yes folks, my tire exploded. 7am Christmas morning.
Because I am the calmest person ever, I pull over and start getting ready to change the tie while having a melt down over the fact that I now need an ENTIRE SET OF NEW TIRES AND CAN'T AFFORD GAS.
Cue nice man in giant mobile-car-repair truck pulling over and changing my tie for me, for free, in like 5 minutes, on Christmas, because he is a nice person.
So yeah. Money is tight. Work is hard to come by.
The good news? Cuna is adorable.
We had one of out best dressage rides ever today, right down to lateral motion.
And you know what? I just need one tire. I even have some time tomorrow to take care of it.
I know I stress about money and it's always extra tight around the holidays, but I'm finding ways to make it work. Anyone have creative side job ideas? How do you make it work when money is short?
