How This Week Went

Ugh, this week.

I had to work super early mornings at the beginning of the week. I am not a morning person. I have a hard time getting to bed early at a reasonable hour so early morning shifts mean I have to come home and nap and I end up super dopey for the rest of the day.

Then I actually did manage to ride and woke up the next day hurting everywhere. I maintained a steady diet of ibuprofen with muscle relaxers for the day and could not get enough enthusiasm to get on a horse.

I don't usually get to ride on Thursday's due to work (although my body soreness was significantly better when I woke up).

Although the calendar says it's supposed to be spring, Mother Nature has other plans. I fully expect to wake up on Friday morning to a dump of snow that's supposed to hit overnight. So I have no idea if I will make it out to the barn in the evening.
Seriously?? When is winter going to end?

And then tomorrow, Saturday, I am attending a dinner/awards/lecture thing being put on by our provincial equestrian organization. It was only $25, and includes a dinner and swag bag (the promise of a swag bag gets me every time). One of the lectures is supposed to be about goal setting, which I'm looking forward to, as it's something I suck at.
I also suck at taking pictures of pigs. They're just too close to the ground!

On my way down to the event I'm going to pick up the cheque for my saddle that sold on consignment. Yay!

The farrier rescheduled last minute this week, so now my guys will be getting done at 9 weeks instead of 7. I'm not real happy about this, but it's the first time it's happened, so I'll suck it up. Their feet are fine at the moment and no one is tripping.

Hopefully next week works out better to get some riding done.


  1. This is the hardest time of year- waiting for the weather to get better enough to enjoy the horses!

  2. I think it must be tough being a meteorologist this winter

  3. ugh boo winter :( and boo extreme soreness too!! have fun at the awards dinner and hopefully it's a great swag bag tho!!!

    1. Hoping it's for useful things that I Don't have to travel to the other end of the province to claim.
