I think this is the longest stretch of time I've ever gone without blogging, which Connor's breeder pointed out to me in a text this week. She always looks out for me. :)

My life right now is ...unsustainable. Both in terms of things that take up my time (work, horse) and in terms of things that stress me out to the point of not being able to think about anything else (...work). Even if I had the time to drive the 80 miles round trip to the barn and ride as much as I wanted to right now, at the end of the day I don't have the brain cells to rub together to make a post.
I say this not to complain to you guys, but man, being an adult amateur (at heart) has never been more real than it is right now. I have my dream job at a great employer, my dream title, enough $$$ to save for retirement and not feel overwhelmingly guilty about my horse expenses (still guilty, just not overwhelmingly guilty...), and yet I'm making it to the barn less than ever and don't have the time to watch clinic videos, think through the holes in our training, or plan my rides in advance.
The good news on the job front is that I'm exploring ways to make that more sustainable. Can't really talk about that publicly though. And on the horse front, I have a trainer-sanctioned plan to make that more sustainable too. More on that soon.
Deep breaths. It's about to get better.
