That Messed Things Up

I was planning on starting to ride horses again as soon as we got back from our New Year's Eve trip, but within hours of getting home...I got sick as a dog and was laid low for several days.

That really messed up my plans.

I figured if I had 10 days of nice long stretching work-outs on Moon before, that we would be at least 'ready-enough' to make one competitive run and then I would be staying in Arizona and could continue on with getting horses in shape.

However, I don't feel it's fair to Moon to only get a couple of rides on him, haul him 550 miles and then expect anything resembling a competitive run, so I opted out of entering the first Grand Canyon rodeo of the year. :-(

Getting sick didn't just derail my riding, I haven't gotten anything else done that needs to be done; the trailer packed, tires on my pickup, or the house cleaned. Arrggghhh...Now I am so far behind, I almost don't know where to start.

Gotta start somewhere though...pick a project and just get it done. After I ride my horse though. :-)

Glad you got your priorities right, riding always comes first! Cant wait to hear all about your move and there will be more rodeos for you to enter I am sure.

Everybody here has been sick. At home, at work, the family, friends- and the crap just seems to linger.

Lots of chicken soup is in order. Hot stuff seems to help kick it.

Sorry to hear you are sick, seems to be going around as usual at this time of year. You gotta be sick if you aren't riding!
