I am in love

Yes in love, with the new Town where I will be employed starting August 3rd! I went there tonight for a board meeting and I love the building, the people, the atmosphere. And listen to this little morsel of wonderfulness-- I get dental too! If you knew me, you would know how I am about teeth... so YAY dental! Anyway, I think I am going to fit in just peachy and my office has a window. Bring it on Baby! Tomorrow is my last day at my part-time job and I have 66.5 Hours left to put in at my internship (although I only have one week to accomplish this). Plus we are moving a week from saturday, thank god for my roommie or I would be trying to pack the whole house next Friday night... EEEKKK!

In other news... I over slept this morning so Daphne had to stay at the house-- I usually take her to D's farm to play with her brother and 4 other dogs while I am at work-- but she was great for Roommie and apparently kept Roommie's dog entertained while she was trying to pack. So this may work out well for everyone when we move and it would be difficult and time consuming to take Daphne to daycare at D's farm.

I didn't have time to go to the farm tonight with the board meeting, but I went out yesterday. I put Granite's saddle and girth on and walked him around and let him graze. He was such a champ! I then lunged him and worked with him the the large arena for a while. He continued to knock my socks off, and let me tell you about his extended trot! Good lord, I think he may accidental be a dressage horse. NO Granite! Be a hunter for mommy, PLEASE! I followed this great work out with a Granite shower and he was SO good. He stood in the cross-ties and generally made me never want to put him on Craig's List :)

Farm sitting begins tomorrow... wish me luck!


  1. Ain't life grand girl :) Love you!


  2. Good luck with the new job - it sounds really great - dental insurance - what a concept!

  3. Well let's see here...if he's good at dressage AND jumping then he's just going to have to become an eventer meaning you will become an eventer ;) You cant waste a great extended trot now can you? Did I mention my blog mission is to bring in converts? Especially hunter converts, haha!

  4. Nicku-
    I think I may have failed to mention that I am a HUGE chicken. When I was in High School, after finishing a 2'6 round, I passed out because I had been holding my breath. Being a hunter rider takes every ounce of courage I can muster and I honestly only put up with the jumping for the flat classes... It is sad, I know. But if Granite becomes an eventer, it won't be with me... boooo me! Hats off to your ballsy eventing chicks!
