So...our ride is of.....
I just KNEW from the beginning something would throw a wrench into our plans.
. There is something that is forbidding me to take Jay away from home for a trail ride.....every opportunity that arises seems to fall through....
I was SO looking forward to this, bought some gear, and here I sit.....
I am really trying to be positive, because I believe everything happened for a reason. Truthfully, I could use the time here to finish school work....and make sure I am prepared for my guest arrival.
The weather is actually to be sunny today, not what they had been predicting, so I will trek out by myself....which I don't have a problem with. Maybe I'll still put on my saddlebags and see how they work. I'm going to have to do,some rigging, as my saddle is a show saddle and has silver conchos where the strings should be, but no big deal.
I'm most angry at the situation. When my mom got to my cousins yesterday she asked the status of the ride....I said I hadn't heard(typical in this day and age isn't it. Everyone connected...yet nobody communicates. Or is it my circle?
). She said she saw S and she wasn't going now! So I texted the leader and she said the same thing, but never mentions if the rest of us are still going.....so I ask...are we going? Three times I text throughout the day.....nothing.....go to bed...nothing...I don't know if I'm to prepare or not. At this point I should have just said forget it....but stupid me always holds out hope....I hear a txt come through late...or is it in my dreams? Nope I get up this morning, and there's a txt saying the ride is off!
apparently the phone had died and she couldn't reach me....I don't know, it's ticked me off that I had to wait all day to find this out......am I being over sensitive? I'm so 'ducks in a row' type of person, I can't wrap my head around it. The whole thing should have been cancelled when we first heard my friend needed to go tot the funeral home. Maybe I should have been the grownup and told her to just go to the funeral home and not to try to do a small ride....
Anyway, the biggest issue is not letting me know.
that burns my butt....and so many people seem to always let me hang....and I find it disrespectful. Use someone else's phone and call me for heavens sake!
Anyway....thanks for letting me vent. Once it warms up, I think I'll ride myself.
. And enjoy the sunshine and the magic horses provide me.
The visit with uncle and cousin was 'interesting'.....it's been one of those weekends.....I guess that's why it's the Halloween weekend.....wierd. Hahaha
Have a good day all!!
