So what's been happening with us?
|Look at my horse! My horse is amazing!|
As for me, things have been crazy. In addition to my busy full-time job, I'm in the process of starting up a freelance design business that is just eating up all of my free time (the whole 30 minutes of it that existed in the first place). On top of everything work and pony related, my husband is midway through his third year of medical school clinicals. That leaves me with 100% of the household to care for. Life as a twenty-something is pretty freaking busy.
Still, I'm trying hard to keep my priorities and expectations straight. I make it to the barn 4 days a week, religiously. Pig had a break (mainly hacking around and stretchy work at the trot and canter in the ring) for a couple of weeks, but he's back into full hard work. I try to get to the gym a minimum of 2 days a week, and exercise in some form outside of riding 3-4 days a week. According to my phone's GPS data, my dogs and I are averaging about 20 miles weekly on our own feet. So, that's fun. Everything else is just barely hanging on as I try to cram too many projects and necessities into a day. I'm still getting all my sleep, but only because that's a priority, too.
I'll be back in to update you all soon, and hopefully can get a few posts written to keep up. There's a lot of training work that I can't wait to share with you all!
