I know, it's been ages. I've been busy. Not really. New obsession is more like it. A couple of weeks ago I decided to watch Skins and give it a try (the original british version, the only version in my opinion). I didn't like it at first. But then something happened. I started to care about the characters, these people who I felt (feel) like I'd gone to school with them, partied with them, and knew their very worst secrets. It's an unbelievable feeling, particularly when you have to say goodbye to them. I felt this way about the first and second generation/cast. I can't stand the new cast. I watched five episodes and then stopped watching, it was just awful. So much worse than I thought it would be. I am looking forward to the last season (7) that starts airing in 2013.

And I'm scrambling to find a dressage saddle to buy. I've decided that I want to find a used Stubben Scandica DL. I've heard good things about them, hopefully they're true. I've found a few, most were too expensive, too worn, or the tree wasn't wide enough. I found one on craigslist that's in beautiful condition, and it's four hours away. I emailed them asking if it was still for sale and I'm waiting for an answer.

I have to go do yet another fasting lab in the morning (three hours away). It's at the new place (the one with that creep old guy) and I'm not looking forward to it.

Hey Sky :) I know I haven't been on I'm a while (sorry) just been really tired... Off to yet another fasting lab this morning (yes, still a 3 hour drive) And then another one in 5 days :( But the good news is that I had a really good ride the other day, even the BO commented on it :)

How can summer be over already? It seems like just yesterday I was, well, free. I'll be leaving Centenario in a week and a half. I'm going to ride over at an eventing barn 45 minutes away 2-3 times a week and I can't afford to have Centenario and keep moving forward with my riding/showing career. I've already taken 4 lessons up there and am going up for another one this wednesday. The trainer is really nice (NOT something I'm used to). I did fall off the first lesson But I've gotten some confidence back.

I finally (after getting into a confrontation with the doctor and winning) got a prescription for metformin. It's not working like I thought it would. I mean, yeah I've lost 4 pounds, but I've been taking the stuff for a month. Better than gaining, but still. So I'm increasing my dose to 1500 mg per day.

I think I'm going to start a new journal after wednesday's lesson. This is new. New barn, new people. It's going to be a good year.
