My work is starting to take a back seat. I’m now trying to get in better shape and watching what I eat more. It’s a difficult thing to do while working the hours I’ve been putting in. Thankfully, my boss is caring and considerate. She’s agreed to let me work 3 days a week for awhile to catch up on my personal health. I’m grateful for the opportunity. I love my job, but there comes a time in every ones life, they either take control of their life or it takes control of you! My job has controlled me long enough. I’ve lost a few more pounds and feeling better than I have in years. Now, if I can just stop smoking. Yuck! That is one nasty, hard to break habit. I’ve done it in the past, so I know I can put them down again.
Jewels is still at the trainer. I’m trying not to bother him so much. lol But, it’s hard to do. I’ve called him a couple of times since I dropped her off. Mostly to find out if he’s still alive. I know Jewels can be a challenge. He seems to think she’s going to be fine in the end. After having worked with her on the ground, he’s figured out why my husband was concerned for my safety. He also understands where I am coming from to. She has potential to be a great mount. I was looking on Craig’s List the other day. I found a lady in Quinlan, Texas who does Western Dressage. I’ve been reading and watching video’s on this discipline for a few months now.
I gave the woman a call this morning. She was happy to discuss the possibility of me taking lessons. I’m going to drive out to her place in the morning. I’m hoping we have a mutual understanding and she can help me find my equestrian calling. Giggle! That sounds real funny when I say it out loud. I would really like to find something horsey I can call my own. Something other than parking my self in the saddle and trail riding. Don’t get me wrong. I love to trail ride. Finding someone to safely ride with though, has it challenges. I don’t live near anyone to ride with. If I learn a new discipline, I can practice here and trail ride on the weekends.
Here’s to all those happy horseman or horse women out there. Until next time. Have a happy horsey day.
