I really have been trying to work on getting those Tuesday night posts up. I missed my Friday night "writing prompt" post this past week too but in my defense, that hasn't completely locked in just yet. Plus I was exhausted and mega cranky so it would have had a very negative spin. My excuse… Continue reading Ok. It’s Wednesday. 🐫
That blinking cursor gets me every time. Especially when there hasn't been any changes or exciting adventures to be had just yet. But I made myself a promise and it's Tuesday night so here we are. Another week has gone by and I'm just itching to ride. We got hit with a slight cold snap… Continue reading Another Week
A Writing Prompt / Pt. 1
Describe the last difficult "goodbye" you said. Everyone says that saying "goodbye" is never easy. But I've never known it to be a permanent thing, even in death. Is it sad? Devastating even? Absolutely. But as time goes on you learn that in death and tragedy, amazing things could follow. I've been lucky enough not… Continue reading A Writing Prompt / Pt. 1
Day Late, A Few Dollars Short
I knew I was forgetting to do something last night as I stuffed a giant burrito into my mouth around 8:45 last night. Most definitely paying for that today. But I have news!! Great news!! Exciting news!! The boys and I have been selected as Brand Ambassadors for some of our favorite products. If you… Continue reading Day Late, A Few Dollars Short
Stall Rest Continues…
There's a feeling of accomplishment when all the barn chores are done and the sun hasn't even made its way to our side of the world yet. Especially when you're at a DIY barn and you're out of there before the rest of the boarders show up. Just you and the horses. Dylan's morning lameness… Continue reading Stall Rest Continues…
Promising yourself that you're going to do something at least once a week is always harder than you would think. But here we are, a blog post by Tuesday night. I might even finish up before this migraine really starts to roll in. The weather has been prime for ponies this week and while one… Continue reading Tuesdays
How did we get here? Thinking again that it's almost been a whole year since my last post and so much has happened. Okay, that's a lie. Nothing really has happened any differently. A quiet year with a few hunter paces in between. Long days and inner battles, but we may finally be on the… Continue reading Another Year
We did it. We had our first ride off property in almost a year. I tried to play it off like I wasn't nervous, but between being a raging *insert bad word here* the night before and then proceeding to dry heave in between mounting attempts, you could tell. I know that once I'm in… Continue reading First Rides
Something a horse person never really wants to pick up from CVS... That and epsom salts. It's just a sign of lots of swearing to come as well as being splashed in the face with a used-to-be warm betadine/water solution. Throw some icthammol ointment in there and you've got yourself a party for sure. Unfortunately… Continue reading Bombs Away
This Is 33.
"Do not complain about growing old. It is a privilege denied to many." - Mark Twain I've never complained about growing older before. It's always been more of a question and wonder that I made it. Another year getting through what life throws at me while picking up whatever I can, and running with it.… Continue reading This Is 33.
