Climbing out of the Hole
I don't think I am quite ready to write in full about this month, but I am trying to pick up as many normal things as possible and writing about my horse life is one of them. A brief timeline of how sucky this month has been.
Sunday Jan 8 - Dutch unexpectedly dies in my arms.
Monday - We burry him and Uno is inconsolable.
Tuesday - We pick up a buddy for Uno from a friend and I get the call that my uncle shot himself.
Friday Jan 13 - My dog gets out and gets hurt in the woods.
Sunday Jan 15 - I leave my husband with a pretty much unknown new horse and fly home to Wisconsin for the Memorial. I get the usual return home depression - I would move up to my family TOMORROW if I had any hope that my Dad would follow.
|My Aunt is amazing.|
Friday Jan 20 - Fina Exams begin for students and I am so behind in my paperwork it hurts.
That all happened. I know I am not functioning well and need to get back into regular therapy for a while, but at least life has finally calmed down a bit.
On the horse front. It has been hard. I cannot really talk about Dutch because I do not have the words. Uno thankfully bounced back once we brought home another horse. Although, he does terrorize the new boy some. On Saturday I finally got some of my mojo back and rode for real and felt like myself again.
