OMGOSH! He is stunning...and yes, I am still looking!
In that amazing and life-saving manner which G-d works in my life (& no doubt all of our lives!) I have THANKFULLY not found any horse that came into my life which would be perfect for me YET, as I've just this past month started this new nursing job, and have found to my surprise that starting a new job can surely sap EVERY AVAILABLE BIT of energy and life resource one has, simply through focusing on the various changes that come with new hours, for me a whole new shift (changed from five nights per week to three DAYS/week, then I worked five eight hour shifts, now three twelve hour shifts!) & I'm now practicing in an entirely new specialty as well!
I made this change (about 80% worth) purely to have the needed time to own a horse and be able to give him a great life and have the days (all but three/week, and then my DH is available on those days!) open for him...
Well, I had NO IDEA how exhausted and "brain dead" this change would leave me...thus, had I chosen a horse, I'd be pushing myself to the limits of insanity to be with him during this past month, and would likely have reflected negatively upon both his "horsey-impression" of me (tired, crabby b&$@h) & my skewed impression of him (time sucking, energy draining yet lovable beast!)--of course that is an exaggeration for dramatic purposes, but I'm sure you get my drift! :0)
Thus, I've put ANY horse shopping on absolute hold until my life settles into something of a workable pattern. I absolutely plan to report back when I'm actively looking again (by June first is the goal!!).
I realize that even at forty (in four months!) I feel old! Back in my twenties, and prior to my neuro illness, I would've been like,"oh heck, bring it ON! New job, new horse, heck, why not buy a HOUSE while I'm at it!"...
Now, however? Well, let's put it this way...my husband and I are just now buying him a new motorcycle to get to work and back on, and I'm responsible for calling for our insurance quotes today before we pick it up tomorrow and I'm like,"Really? All those PHONE CALLS? But, I'm so TIRED!" Haaa!!!
Similarly, I haven't even LOOKED AT HF, FB, or any non-work or family-related emails until TODAY due to the last three days of work kicking my behind (granted, each day went from a 12 hour shift to a fifteen hour shift due to the learning curve in their charting devise). It's like an
I-pad for medical charting, and it's SO easy to use, but whomever said computers make your work FASTER, in this kind of nursing, at least, had to be insane! ;0)
Anyway, that horse looks amazing...I worry why he's going away for free and wonder if it is because he's forgotten everything in two years, or has become psychotically buddy sour?
I hope not...He'd clearly make someone a beautiful horse. Thank you for thinking of me after all this time!
Best to all!! B2H
