, thank you! I love it!
, thank you! I'm so proud of him <3 and Muffins with Mom was a lot of fun! I enjoy it a lot! Haha, no. We can't seem to ride more than one day in a row. I don't always ride back to back, but if the weather is nice I do! And it definitely is her color!! These days have been insane for sure! And silly Promise with the dirt bikes! Yay to selling your saddle! I'm glad you had such a good ride <3 happy birthday to Promise! I hear you on the not worried part. I'm just blah for it all.
@Ib27312, thank you! My daughter loves riding Izzie. I just never expected her to settle down so much that she's safe for kids! And thank you! Hoping they all go well too! I'm always up when it's dark, so that didn't change anything lol but I DO love more daylight after work!
, whew to those long hours for the conference/drive home! I am not a night owl, so those times would kill me! I'm glad the weather has been so favorable to ride in!
, I seriously can hardly wait!! I'm so excited about it! Izzie is much more cuddly than Diego, but Diego will gladly take a good mane scratch LOL! He's a bigger goofball that Izzie is, just Izzie is a bit more personable. I told Nick we'd be meeting you and that he has to wear his bright orange hat. Being barely above 5'1" makes me incredibly difficult to spot, and then I go and ride a pony so I'm small in the arena too haha! And you're hubby is hilarious! That sounds like a conversation Nick and I will have later on in life lol we have similar ones already though haha! Oh man to losing power! We didn't lose power for long. Looked like it just flashed. But it's been a while since it went completely out.
, I see nothing wrong eating Girl Scout cookies like that!
Whew, what an incredibly hectic few days I've had.
First, I finished up a GIGANTIC project yesterday. Right as the company announced all "non essential" "non business critical people" are not to report to work. I'm a contractor. And my contracting company completely sucks. Basically, I burn through what PTO I have, or I'm unpaid.
Fortunately it came up that a study I haven't started yet was deemed "business critical" as they need the data by April 8th. It'll only last me until March 25th, but it's better than nothing. I'm just horribly angry at my company over their truly atrocious stance. The CEO of the company I'm contracted in said this was to keep the people who could work from home at home, so there IS a chance us lab folk can resume work as normal. Please cross all fingers/toes, and pray to whatever you believe in that this happens. I'd rather not having our monthly income cut in half.
In other news, I rode only Diego last night. A longer ride, since I knew I wouldn't have time before the rain to work both horses. Diego is higher priority as the threat of not having work/pay for a while will possibly mean canceling the end of April show for us. I'm hoping not, but I'd rather continue with breeding Izzie as planned and sacrifice the show than to give up breeding this year. We aren't in danger of losing anything, so I promise I'm not being irresponsible by choosing to bring another one in. I'm just choosing which is a priority.
Diego was fantastic though. It's honestly the best ride I've had on him to date. I think he knew I needed a good ride on him, and he gave it to me.
Anyway, that's all for now. I'm at least safe until March 25th. After that is a giant unknown.
But, I have cute ponies...
