There aren't very many things that make me supremely pissy in this world (ok, that might be a lie). But the sense that I'm not in control of my schedule, or that things are "getting away from me" is one of them.
Case in point. I haven't ridden my mare since April 14th, and even that was only for a few minutes with my vet. I have only been home for two days since then, which is a legit excuse, but doesn't really change the facts.
So you can imagine my glee yesterday when upon walking off the plane and finally situating myself back into the office I realized that I had Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday AND Friday evenings free to go see the mare and get back in the proverbial saddle.
Of course then the appointments started piling up. Mare's shoe still isn't back on, dentist is coming to the barn and Dr Finn needs to be scheduled.
All good things, all things that need to happen, but I'm sorta annoyed that Miss P isn't in fully operational order. However, I got on the horn today and both her teeth and her shoe will be done by end of day and Dr. Finn just got confirmed for this coming Sunday. Which should still leave me Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and maybe even Saturday to remember how to ride :)
In the mean time I'm just going to have to settle for opening up my checkbook and making "clip-clop" noises while I sprinkle $$ all around the barn.
SO READY TO RIDE.
