Mini-rant re:regretting not going to the barn

I've been to the barn for 7 days straight since we got Lucky down here(and the day before for his ppe) and ridden him 6 of those days. I was in a bad mood from work and just found out my dads dog has cancer. I decided to give me and Lucky a break and not go riding today. Soooo- now that its almost bedtime I really really wish I had gone out to I am quite angry with myself. Thought I'd vent and hopefully find out others have made similar decisions they then kicked themselves for. So- any horsey regrets?

You are very lucky to be able to go see him as often as you like. I used to see my horse every day, but my life has changed a lot.. Now I have kids, had a break up, had to move to the city, and work a lot more, so I am lucky if I get out 2x a week.
So don't beat yourself up, I am sure the horse didn't mind, and will be happy to see you tomorrow. My advice is to enjoy the time you are able to spend now, as you never know what life will hit you with.
And yes, I think we all have passed on an opportunity at one point to go to the barn, then regretted it.
My latest was just yesterday. I always go to the barn Mondays after work because I don't have the kids that night. But I am selling my van, and had a prospective buyer coming. Well, I got stood up, and waited far too long. I shoulda left after a half hour and gone riding, instead I waited until it was too late, and was grumpy the rest of the night!
