Some hidden costs came up which made the pad cost nearly $100 in total. Way more than I wanted to spend lol.

Today was a puzzle day. Finished a really lame but tricky puzzle with my folks and we had a blast.

But apparently Sky wasn't too great today for my friend. Makes me want to fly down there and sort him out. I know she does a great job with him but I feel like he's taking advantage of the situation.. or maybe his diet is causing him to go loony. Who knows.. I've got to sit down and calculate what he is getting.. and as SOON as I get some money coming in, going to put him on a few supplements and cut down on his rations for summer.

But man I'm just.. so frustrated. I had everything going smoothly on the ordering front and then the supplement came to me and the pad was too expensive.. grr.

That was so incredibly sweet of you to look up for me, I really appreciate it. Not the right pad though as that one is for jumping saddles, but your kindness really made my night. Thank you.

I did find out I don't start work until the end of July (doesn't this just seem like I'm being strung along?) and a potential riding stable less than 30 minutes away. So that's great news! But mom isn't letting me go anywhere... you know how when we were little and we wanted weekends to never end? I'm living it, and it's not that great. It would be great if I wasn't stuck inside all day with the option to study or sleep. Oh well.

20 more months till I go back home!

It does sound a little odd not starting for so long :/

Great you found a riding stable but it's fairly useless if your mum doesn't want to take you anywhere :/
Have you asked get why?

Oh I've asked.. she just never answers. We'll be getting a second car in a few weeks so I'll be able to drive myself. It's very frustrating though.. she gets to make all these friends and go places and I'm stuck in the house with my laptop and my studies.

I know it could be worse but it's New Zealand.. it's a gorgeous place and I came here to explore it. Grr..

Yeah everything in New Zealand takes ages to happen. I mean we didn't get internet for over a month in our home, after arranging it the day we touched down.

Maybe you could clean, vacuum, dust, wash the car, work in the garden, or mow the yard?

I mean, if you're bored, I'm sure I could find SOMETHING to occupy your time!
