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.


  1. Husband does shift work and the flipping back and forth really is rough. You're going to love being on straight days!

    Looking forward to hearing more about the new adventures with Dickie. Cross country will be fun!

  2. glad to hear that you are alive...

  3. Yeah days are waaaaay better. My husband had to flip flop and it's no fun at all. Even if it doesn't seem that bad it is still so hard on your body. :)

    I can't wait to start reading about Dickie's adventures! The show is going to be so much fun!
