Weather is gorgeous so I can’t blame that on my mood! It was 78 degrees yesterday and sunny. GLORIOUS. Today is the same. I offered to go haul a new lease horse from Mississippi to the barn on Wednesday just to get away from the computer for a while (I have so much work but getting burned out fast). I am also taking Friday off to go ride my horse because A) it is going to be 70s again B) Sunday is going to be thunderstorms and C) My brother is coming this weekend to visit.
I had a lesson with Remus last weekend and he was very good. I rode in one of the instructor’s Antares again (this is the saddle I used when I was looking for a saddle) because my instructor doesn’t like my jumping in my Stubben Excalibur. I have more of a chair seat in that saddle which may be okay cross country when it is balls to wall. Not so much with in the ring doing lines. I like that saddle but not sure I want to buy a pricey saddle but I did jump better.
Though my hip (and leg, and back, and down to my right knee) is still KILLING ME. It only hurts lying down at night, sitting in the truck driving without cruise, and oh getting on and off my horse. Riding is not bad once I loosen up but my riding is not great right now. When I get off Remus it takes about 15 steps before I am walking semi-normally again so that is a worry. I am doing all sorts of stretching and nothing is helping. Not sure if it is my it band or my sciatic nerve or what but I am tired of it. I do know that it happened from all the pre-convention weeks of sitting in my chair for 12-14 hours a day. SO I did order a better ergonomic chair to see if it helps at all.
And my husband and I are in the doldrums with life. We have it so good, Mark makes great money I make better money than I ever have and we have no life due to my dad living with us. It is draining us fast. I am hoping to have a conversation with my brother this weekend but we can’t continue like this. Dad has no clue how much of a burden he is on his and he treats my husband like shit.
SO here I sit in a self-pitying muddle. So woe is me. Hope everyone else is doing okay. I do get to go play with my pony tomorrow and that does help (once I actually manage to clamber aboard him).
Hey at least it is almost Friday, right? AND NOT ICY OUT !
And now for some reason WordPress has decided to stop letting me put any gifs into my blog. ARGHHH Have a good weekend. I give up!
