So, I can only write until my fiance wakes up and realizes I'm not in bed at 4:30 in the morning! But I have certainly been EXTREMELY MIA the last few weeks!
I have to blame most of this on starting a new job where I commute 35 minutes or so each way. I haven't even seen my horse since I started this job--when I leave it's dark, when I get home it's dark! So if anyone is going to complain about my absence, I'd like to think it would be him...in reality he's probably relieved.
Also, I have officially reached the point where I cannot ride. Bummer.
And on top of the job, last weekend was my baby shower! It donned on me about 3 weeks ago that we were about to have a baby shower and the nursery was FAR from complete, so we were not going to have anywhere to put our gifts once we got them!
So that has been the focus while I have been absent from BlogLand. I apologize! I know my advice (usually opposing all the other advice) has probably been missed around here! I do check in and read blogs when I can, but no time to comment when there's a crib to build! Is this how the rest of my life is going to work? I have a feeling it is.
When I woke up about a half hour ago, I thought, "Hmmm...I should really read and try to fall back asleep...or maybe I should go do something semi-productive and get used to waking up at all sorts of hours of the night!" A lot of the advice I got at the baby shower was to get as much sleep as I could now, because it was soon to be a thing of the past. So now that I've written the shortest blog in Palomino Girl history, I think I'm going to follow some of that advice and try to cruise back to bed.
Pictures of the baby shower to follow--while it was not horse themed, I did get a BEAUTIFUL boots and spurs quilt for the baby that I will have to show off...as soon as I find it in the pile of baby stuff sitting in the middle of the nursery!
Happy Trails--please, enjoy your horses for me. I am now living vicariously through you!
