Been a while...

Holy cow! I have been so busy I've just about forgotten about blogging. It's good to stay busy though... So, I am happy to say that I've got my sh*t together! I was finally contacted by someone from the TAA program and I've met with them twice. I was approved for schooling and I am now enrolled in some summer courses at UW-Whitewater! How exciting... well... sort of. I am not looking forward to the math class, but I HAVE to do it. I am going back to school to get my teaching license, so I suppose I should brush up on my math skills.

Anyway, other than that I've been riding A LOT... almost too much, if there is such a thing, ha. I'm not gonna talk a whole lot about the situation other than to say I'm helping a trainer ride colts. It's a really good experience for me and I'm learning tons. I look forward to applying some of the things I've learned on my own horses... haha, when I get a chance to ride them!

Well, I just wanted to give everyone an update since I've disappeared for a while. Hope you're all enjoying your horses and the nice weather (even though it's HOT)

Motivation

That's what I need... Motivation to do something other than ride horses all day... Wouldn't it be nice if I could go on doing that the rest of my life? I would love it, but alas, horses cost money and I need a job in order to make money. Grrr.... Oh well. So I called up the University I want to attend. The lady I needed to speak with is only in her office on Tuesdays from 9 - 5, hopefully she'll call me back tomorrow. I also need to get in contact with the lady in charge of the TAA program. I have heard from my ex-coworkers that she is very tough to get a hold of and she is not good at returning calls even though it is her JOB... oh well. I will do my best to contact her this week and if I don't hear from her... I'll show up at her office... or call her boss. Heh heh heh.

The weather has been beautiful and I've been taking advantage of it. I don't remember the last day that I wasn't up on a horse. It's been lots of fun. Can't say that I'm not enjoying unemployment... But there is still that nagging voice in the back of my head wondering if I'll be able to make all the payments I need to make to stay on top of my bills... I hate that voice.

Anyway, I hadn't blogged in quite a while so I wanted to throw in an update to let you all know I'm still alive and well. Hopefully I'll have some pictures to upload this week. Maybe some team roping... or trail riding... who knows! It will be a surprise!

Have a wonderful week!!
