Success! And the icing on that cake was her nonchalant attitude, superb score, and actually bringing home satin!
- (Cinna) Continue to work as often as weather allows
Mixed bag on this. After the show I trail rode her once, and have lunged her a few times.
Success! And I found out earlier this week we were reserve champion at Training Level this year! Not bad considering I only showed enough to get like the minimum scores to be eligible… haha. I had no plans to try for year-end awards this year, so this was a nice bonus!
- (Ruby) Go on another ride at Indian Camp Creek, or a new trail
Well..... I did go on another ride at ICC, but I took Trigger, because Ruby was healing from a small shoulder gash. Soooo, I guess that was a fail too... haha.
- (Myself) Continue working out regularly, either at the gym or using DVDs at home
Uhhhhhh didn’t really happen…. At all. I could make a million excuses, but I just didn't.
- (Myself) Seriously STAHP spending money and repay savings account for impulse hot tub purchase and save for PR
All aboard the failboat…. Haha. Placed a stress order with Riding Warehouse (no regrets) and succumbed to a 12 days of Christmas deal for a much needed blanket for Ruby.
I waffled back and forth for a while trying to write some reasonable, attainable goals for this month, but I honestly just can’t think of any. My work – life – barn/riding balance is in complete and utter disarray, the weather has officially moved into sucky winter territory (I don’t do well below 40 degrees), I’m starting to get panicked about how much I have to get done before our vacation and no time to do it in, and I’m deep into the December financial doldrums of “why are tax bills and all of my truck licensings due the same month that I have to buy Christmas presents for everyone and WHY DID I THINK IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO GO ON VACATION AT THE SAME TIME?!?!”
|Dachshunds are great. Until they have back problems.|
So here are my not-goal goals for December…
- (Myself) Destress, decompress, and drink lots of rum on the beach in Puerto Rico. Also, try to go horseback riding.
That’s it. That’s my only goal for December. And hopefully I will have a renewed stock of ambition and energy for January!
