A quick update to remind you I'm alive...

February is a one hell of a full month.
This is my office. I swear to god. It doesn't normally look like this...
Work is slammed with events, and I'm so busy spinning up the propaganda machine I can't even keep straight which show I'm trying to sell.
David Axelrod? A basketball game? I can't tell anymore ...
Grad school is in full swing. Luckily, it turns out that I am not too old to still write a 6 page historiographical research review in 24 hours. (6 page paper? Easy-peasy. 1 page press release? Hardest thing ever. Dear Brain, why you do dis?)
Dogs don't care how late you stay up researching, so long as you do it in bed...
Unfortunately, it turns out I am too old to successfully manage not to die the next day from lack of sleep and brain power.
"Just gonna stay right here today ..."
Add to that trying to help prepare one horse for a potential client (spoiler, he didn't sell)...
"Why does nobody want me?"
And put my own little red Ferarri back to work...
The epitome of excitement...
And you have a recipe for stress in spades.
"I TOLD you not to ride stressed!"
Nothing so bad a good run can't relieve, if I can find the time.
"Mom! Stop being busy and take me for a run!!"
Sadly, with a to-do list this long, I don't think the end of this month will ever come!
Yep.

  7. Yikes! Super busy! I feel you on grad school and being way too old to pull all nighters and still look/act somewhat human the next day. I have no idea how I managed in my undergrad.

    1. I think I was worse at all nighters in undergrad. I distinctly remember waking up to coffee spilled down the front of me and all over my papers...

  8. Responsibilities would be a lot less terrible if we didn't have to wear pants while taking care of them. If they are required, then I think yoga pants should be sufficient. I hope things slow down for you soon. I'm in the same boat, hence the lack of blog posts.

    3. Buzzkill indeed!! Well, this guy is perfect for someone wanting to learn dressage and go up through 3rd level on a horse with all the buttons, and the temperament to deal with an ammy. So, just tell him you want to take up dressage in your spare time! That has to work, right?! ;)
