When to quit-tough conversation.
So, as some of you know, DH has a debilitating disease, and is therefore forced to retire earlier than planned. Therefore, we had a "budget " meeting of sorts. DH (who is wonderful, but NOT a horse person)-"so, just how long do you think you will have horse and keep riding?"
Me-"As long as I can."
DH-"Well, when you are 70, in another 12 yrs, do you REALLY think you should take the risk?"
Me-"I am not ready to talk about giving up horses or riding. I will let you know when that time comes."
This is a tough one guys. We have been SO blessed in our lives and have been able to afford all that we wanted. I am now looking at getting my nursing license back, just to go to work to pay for our health insurance as of next year.
This was definitely not in the "plan". I have one out on a free lease to a therapeutic center, thank god, but those days are limited. Eventually he will be back on my "payroll", until he dies. My current guy is only 10.....I am just not ready to say I am done, and realistically, there will come a time when the barn will be the only time I have away from caring for the DH.
When do you stop? When is the time to sell the current horse so that he has a future with another home? I know I will keep my old guy forever, and am obligated to that........
