Back to feeling crabby. To recap, this week I had a lot of appointments/ things scheduled. To date:
- Vet appointment that was for Monday got rescheduled for Friday, but I’m not holding my breath on that one, because…
- Car appointment for Wednesday got cancelled, because the place they ordered the car part lost the part??
- And my race scheduled for Saturday that I was actually looking forward to got cancelled due to lack of entries.
- So–this all adds up to me seriously not expecting my vet appt to happen tomorrow, because quite frankly, NOTHING I scheduled for this week has been happening. At all. Which is very annoying, because I have to re-arrange my schedule, drive my car in to work, pay $8+++ in parking downtown, try to wrangle time off work to make the appointments…only to have them not freaking happen.
I am more than ready to throw up my hands and say FORGET IT! This week, YOU WIN!
I have been burned badly this week by this, so I am not booking anything right now. No appointments, no scheduled items, no races, nothing. UGH.
Ranty rant rant rant. Sigh.
I also decided I didn’t want to jump last night- chiefly because my ride last week was so weird, and I have the vet appt feasibly on Friday to figure some stuff out, and I wanted to make sure my legs were feeling ok for my race on Saturday…that is now not happening. Lovely.
Instead, we worked on a fairly challenging canter pole exercise, that Oats did really well at! Our jumping blows, but his flatwork has been impressing me more and more these days. Just great, and his ‘try’ was definitely there. It was messy, awkward but we worked through it and actually made the pole exercise happen–I was quite proud of him. Go pony! A really good lesson and a fun ride.
A colleague also complimented my outfits and said I had a fantastic sense of style. That made me very happy and I was really flattered! 🙂 🙂 Gotta get what I can these days, with my increasingly grouchy week that started grouchy and is well on it’s way to ending very sour as well.
