I confess I'm watching far too much showjumping lately. Subscribing to the FEI youtube channel was probably not my wisest move. They stream A LOT live.

I confess its been a tough day today. Just feel weepy and panicky. Trying not to let anyone see, they sort of think 'move on with your life'. But these moments just happens. It kindof feels like homesickness. Because I had to leave our rental place its like i'm on holiday and now its time to go home.

Having a good cry might just relieve some of the stress from those life changing upheavals you've been going through. Hugs!

@ShirtHotTeez - cry if you need to. It relieves the stress and lets you "reset."

For all my wrecks, I have plenty of scars but never broke a bone. Don't ask my how - rubber bones? I try hard not to discover whether that's still the case tho. I don't mind cuts and bruises, but I really don't want to break.

Aww @ShirtHotTeez , life changes can be so hard! Sometimes just letting the flood gates loose is the start for healing and settling in to a 'new' life.

We need some pictures of Camden @PoptartShop ! I love his name!

Hope today is nice and calm for you @Tazzie !

I confess I am becoming that crazy and weird animal person! A young sow had piglets last night and one of them is having problems walking around and hadn't nursed at all. So, this morning the sisters and I headed to town to grab some powdered pig colostrum and milk.
We TOOK THE PIG ALONG! Yep! We also took his bottle and some warm water to feed him right away! We were going to stick him in a baby sling and take him in Tractor supply to get it, but ended up making him a bed in a crate and having someone watch him. The change lil guy has made is crazy! Now all he does is eat, eat, eat, eat and eat! He's a piggo I guess! LOL He also wants to be held a certain way and will crawl out of his bed and scream if we don't feed him right away. *Sigh. I forgot how much work rising a piglet can be!

We need name suggestions, BTW. Pigson, Burt and Mr Piggo have been suggested, but I'm still not to sure!

@Change - I'm not nearly so lucky xD I've broken more bones than I can count. Let's see...
My wrist, my tail bone three times, two toes (in several places), my nose twice, my skull in several places, a rib or two, a finger, my right knee, then of course my pelvis in several places, my hip, and I... what's the word? Completely obliterated my calcaneus xD None of my injuries ever really slowed me down until my accident. I've always been a bit of a thrill seeker xD

@JCnGrace - It must be so nice to get out to the barn after all that time off! I know the feeling; it's so cathartic! <3
Post pictures of the kitties if you can!

@ShirtHotTeez - I agree with JC--a good cry can be good for the soul. I'm sorry to hear you're going through a tough time; we're all here, if you ever need to bend an ear. <3

@blue eyed pony - I love watching show jumping! But I admittedly prefer spectating in person to watching online, and prefer participating to spectating xD

@Tazzie - I do like a good highbrow read, with a preference towards fiction, but this isn't either of those things Dx These days, I just read whatever current best seller I can most easily get my leetle hands on!
Enjoy your weekend!

@evilamc - Haven't seen you in a while, either! Welcome back <3

@gingerscout - Glad to hear!

@PoptartShop - Nothing like a crisp autumn ride! I can't wait to hear how it goes!

@GMA100 - Haha!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Not much new to report here, except that I have been avoiding work like the plague <3

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Confessions..

I feel a little overwhelmed with some emotion. Trying to figure out if I should re-join my equestrian team or just take a class for extra riding time. I'm also thinking about when I leave here, I'm going to miss being a part of the school's club. Of course that's in the future. I need to stop thinking so much of the future.

Thanks everyone.

@Finalcanter plan for the future, leave room for flexibility, and live today. Todays crap, good and bad, is tomorrows memories.

Exactly what @ShirtHotTeez said @Finalcanter . Enjoy your youth while you can, listen to your heart and mind then figure out a compromise, because it's rare that they say the exact same thing, for right now and let tomorrow sort itself out.

@GMA100 , wait until he starts trying to climb up you leg to get to his bottle, those little hooves are sharp! I'm horrible about thinking up names. Only thing that comes to mind when I look at him is Pinky Pig. LOL

@Zexious , I keep nagging hubby to get pictures of them for me but he keeps forgetting.
