Life has been pretty boring and fairly sucky the past couple weeks. I'm whining, I know, but I'm so sick of this weather I could scream. Windy, cold, rainy, storms... I've only used my fly spray twice, we haven't hung up fans on the stalls yet, and no one has put away winter blankets because we bust them out every now and then. And if that wasn't bad enough, on the days I might actually be able to ride, I have appointments, or Lilly is getting vaccines, or I have to work a double shift, or the arena is a swamp from the previous night's deluge.
It's all so lame.
I'm hoping to show on the 25th, and possibly on the 18th, (weather permitting) and I'm so extremely unprepared. Luckily, Lilly doesn't regress when she isn't ridden for what seems like months at a time, but I still need to get her conditioned and get in some rides so I don't feel like such a slacker.
My least favorite person, the weather man, is calling for rain tomorrow and rain on Saturday, but hopefully the arena isn't too bad and I can ride on Thursday or Friday. I have family coming into town, so I can't spend all my time at the barn, but hopefully we can make it out there one of those days. It would be nice to get some pictures too!
Ok, whiny rant over... for now. Here's a picture of my sweet girl enjoying a brief period of sunshine.
