I suppose the shoe had to drop at some point.
And not that anything bad has happened, more that I'm just starting to have a teeny, tiny, ever-so-slight Freakout.
I'm sure it's because yesterday involved some serious wedding planning along with packing up my kitchen along with hauling the first bits of my horsey life out of my barn. All in all, lots of opportunity to feel a bit overwhelmed and disorganized. Fortunately mom came prepared with a bottle of champagne, which we proceeded to drink in plastic slurpee cups while we carefully wrapped and boxed all the appropriate stemware..
Re: Pia I think I'm just coming to grips with the fact that I'm about to start writing some really big checks and not seeing my horse with any regularity.
I tried to think of the longest I've gone without seeing her since her arrival - and I'm pretty confident it's not more than 7 days. So aside from parting with the cold, hard cash, I've also got to wrap my head around the fact that P will be really far away and really, really hard to see with any regularity.
I really don't like it. I don't like thinking about it, and I don't like not knowing what our plan it...
Which means it must be time to revert to a Short Term Plan... (STP)
Today: Groom and play with horse, pack some tack up
Tomorrow: Pick up Trailer from trailer place with fresh wheel bearings and brakes
Friday: Enjoy 70 degree weather, wash horse, get her all pretty for her trip
Saturday: Haul, cry, pat pony, hopefully feel REALLY REALLY GOOD about where she's going.
Sunday: Drink bottles of wine while I watch checks clear my account and try not to feel terrible about paying board at two barns for 10 days. (LAMER).
