I'd Rather Be Riding

Okay so today is my first day back in the office really since Friday morning. I've been working visiting businesses and farms and yesterday Porkchop raced up in Indiana (total play hooky day) but I don't want to be here. I'm having a hard time concentrating. This morning was nice and cool, low humidity for once and I want to be RIDING! I could have trailered to Spring Run and schooled xc or finally had my dressage lesson. But Noooooo because I have to adult (can we all commiserate here for a moment?) and make the money to be able to continue to show and to pay for Ranger's surgery and all my many student loans and my tack hoarding problem. Yadda yadda yadda. If you've ever adulted while owning horses, you know the song of my people.

my person <3 and porkchop.... who ran dead last...

I didn't ride Monday, I had a migraine and so much to do to get ready for racing. And I didn't even get home until 9 last night and by the time the kids were fed and stalls cleaned. Pah! I needdddd to ride today. A nice hard gallop I think followed by some jumping. And Twister and Rascal need their hooves checked. I'm hoping I can put off doing them until this weekend, although today is Day 10.........

Anyways. Point is, I only want to be an insurance agent when it's cold out. When it's nasty and wet and freezing I have no problems what so ever sitting in an office or driving all over town. I guess I should have been a teacher? :P

Whine fest over.

PS. Ranger had FHO surgery #2 yesterday and came through great. He has arthritis in his elbows but it should clear up a good bit once his hips are done recovering. I can pick him up Friday! Now if only my neighbor would mow his hay field so we can get to the pond when staples come out!
I miss my hurtling puppy!

  1. "I only want to be an ____________ when it's cold out" - yep i am in serious agreement here... why can't we just all be independently wealthy and just get to do whatever we want whenever?? le sigh. glad Ranger's surgery went well - hope he's back in action asap!
