Until the big move back to the coast. I'm happy, excited, sad, and anxious all at the same time. My focus and therefore productivity are at an all time low. I do have a lot of half read books sitting around, a lot of half done projects at work, and even some half eaten dinners stashed in the freezer ;)Even Ginger just got the one ride this past week.
I am super excited to be heading back to see all my good friends, and most importantly, G. It will be good feeling to walk through the front door of our house after so long away. I am also happy to be getting a break from my work. Although I like my job and coworkers, work has been too large a part of my life for a while now and I'm feeling the burnout.
I'm looking forward to seeing how far Ginger and I can progress this winter. Finally, I will have time, and lots of it, to spend at the barn!
I'll be sad to leave my new friends here, and especially sad to leave the barn I'm at even if it's just for a few months. It's a good place, with good people, and we all know how hard those can be to find! I'm going to miss my lessons.
Goals for the winter:
-Get Ginger out on the trails, and out to a few clinics.
-Get Ginger more time over jumps. Need to have her ready for shows and events next spring.
-Less time at the gym- more time hiking, biking, riding, etc
-Back to having my own kitchen = more cooking, eating better and spending less. I want to be a thinner, fitter version of me!
-Lots of time with Mr G :)
-Would like to travel a bit too. We'll see what the time and budget allows there.
-Find a horse trailer!
We'll see how it goes. I'm really enjoying being able to move around - it makes me appreciate the good things about each place that much more, although the long distance relationship thing the last year or so has been hard. We're coming up on 7 happy years together, though :) I'm extremely lucky and I know it.
