I then deleted it because who wants to listen to my first world problems?
Yes, I'm frustrated- I want to ride but have to wait to get the saddle sorted. I've been super busy at work but it's not felt productive and there's a million things I have to get done around the farm. Menopause may be contributing to my mood as well (I've never done well with hormonal changes).
So yesterday I wallowed. Today I gave myself a shake. I can whine or I can get on with it.
Today I will lunge and do a lot of ground work with my girl. How can that not be useful? I know I love to ride but I think I need to learn this lesson.
I will get some chores done.
I will visit my mom and have a lovely chat.
And tonight Ed and I have a big date in the city- dinner and a play with good friends.
And in a few days there's going to be a beautiful Andalusian stallion, a spanish riding instructor and a dear friend coming for a visit. She's also bringing saddles so perhaps one will work temporarily.
I will allow myself to vent but if you hear me turn whiny you have my permission to tell me to get over myself.
