I am ready for tomorrow. I think I now prefer to be busy during the day. I had down time this evening and it just kind of gave me too much time to think. I get bored easily and then become unhappy and snippy. So sorry, mom, if I was full of attitude! Ok, now that I have publicly apologized let me tell you about the goodness of the day haha 🙂
Then I was off to the barn for the farrier! Vinnie was first to get done and then I had another wonderful ride. I wish I could ride all day long. Riding is so soothing and livening to me. I almost got Vinnie to do a flying lead change today. He half did it and ended up cross-cantering. He will get there though! I don’t know where that goal came from and I am probably asking too much of him too quickly but I think he has just as much fun as I do so I am not worried. It was warm enough that I hosed him off after my ride. He was well behaved on the wash pit which was good because usually he is a crack-head when I hose him off. I talked to Renee and Lena for a bit before I headed up to Roxboro to go help at my dad’s office. I wish I could have spent my day off doing other things, but I was glad to help in any way that I could since the end of tax season is only days away. I ended up filing which was good because it is mindless work but it is a big time consumer so nobody has time to do it, but having the returns filed is a HUGE help. It was also really good to see Tammy and Heather since I have’t seen either of them in ages! When I first got there I had tortellini soup and an apple for my lunch.
After that is when I was struck with boredom. I tried to relax but my mind was just going a mile a minute. I watched Scandal and that helped to keep my mind occupied. I then helped my mom with a delicious dinner! Chipotle-orange shrimp over fettuccine with green beans. Oh my goodness it was good! And so easy!
Now I think I am going to watch this Pirates game and maybe read a little before having snack and going to bed. My mom and I are going to go to the gym in the morning and then I am going to work since there is a Duke/NC State baseball game being played at the stadium. I am just happy to have something to occupy my time. I am hoping to make it to the barn after work. I like being busy, but I like having time to see Vinnie. Tomorrow will be a good day!
Hope you had a good Friday!
