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).



  1. Sounds like a road trip to me!! Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!! :)

  2. Here's hoping Pia REALLY appreciates this. I'm actually quite excited to hear all about Pia's summer camp experiences! Make sure to keep us all as updated as possible while she's away.

  3. Aw, I hope you get to visit lots more than you're expecting.

  4. yikes! I don't envy you. I bet Pia's trip will all be worth it in the end. As for packing up the kitchen...drink one for me! lol

  5. Why does it seem that life changes all happen at once? It sure can be overwhelming!

    Pia will be in horsey heaven and you're making a wonderful decision for her. Yes, it's hard to be away, but think of the fabulous weekend getaways you can have over the summer!

  6. I can't imagine how awful it will be to have her so far away and go so long without seeing her. I think the longest I've gone without seeing Chrome it forty eight hours . . . or maybe it was three days . . . regardless it was awful. Sorry I'm not helping am I? You will be okay, she will be great and is going to love it there.
