I wanted to stop in and say that I am alive and well. The horses are alive and well too. Maybe a little too alive. Dickie has been super sassy with the barn owner and I have five days off in a row so he is going to get some work. I have been away from blogger world mostly because of work. I had a stretch of working on day, one off, then two, one off, then four in a row, then more of working odd days. It wouldn't be so hard if I was on days but it is hard to flip back and forth so fast on nights. I work three in a row every week for the rest of the month then I AM ON DAYS!!! It is bittersweet because I love my corworkers. I also really like the shift. I don't have a problem staying awake and I sleep just fine during the days. It having to be up early for the horses that kills me. If I go in the evening it is dark and wet and the arena is crowded. I actually like being out in the round pen but I can handle dark OR rainy not both. The arena is empty during certain hours but I don't really want to be riding dofus when no one is around to call an ambulance.
So as of April 8th I will be on day shift. I will also be starting school again (getting ready for that has been another time sucker). I really will be back on blogger. Dickie an I have exciting plans on the horizon. We have a show the end of the month and I hope to start taking him to school at local cross country courses once the weather dries a bit. I have a friend who jumps her mare and it will be fun to take him along for the ride.
