I've obviously still been a horrible blogger as of late. Life is in full swing overload mode, and priorities are priorities - it is actually 4:15 in the morning right now, and I haven't actually gone to bed yet, seeing as we have company coming in tomorrow and I have only just finished cleaning the house. I also just finished my last exam last night/this morning, which means I am officially DONE with the schooling part of my school (2.5 years later!). All I have left are my case studies and a final practicum, and I will be ESA certified. Since I'll already have all my case studies gathered, I'll also be able to pursue AHA certification as well. There are absolutely 0 AHA certified trimmers in the state of Texas, so I'll be the first if I am selected. (Lots of AANHCP people in the area though... I am NOT and will NEVER be AANHCP affiliated.)
There are going to be exciting changes in the upcoming near future. There is nothing set in stone yet, but I'm gearing up to cut out the excess in my life in order to take on more clients (they are banging my door down and I literally do not have enough daylight to fit them all in anymore - I work for 10 hours a day without so much as a lunch break and then trim every single day from the second I get off the farm until it dark, and THEN have to find time to squeeze my own mares in. Days off are filled with trim clients from start to finish. I can't do both anymore!). I don't have any serious announcements yet, but things will be changing shortly, and I will have more time to devote to my girls, to my Future Hubs, to my critters, to my business, and thank god to my semblance of a social life. I am a hard worker and I love to be busy, but I live for my downtime, and I haven't had essentially any regular relaxation time for well over a year now. Even my "vacations" (a day off here and there, once a month or so) have been filled with studies or trims or whatnot. There is only so much a person can do before they literally just can't do it anymore.
But, now that things are about to wind down, I will be able hopefully to start regularly blogging again. The mares are getting worked of course, and regularly (I find time to cram them in no matter what), but at the end of the day I just literally don't have the time right now to write about it. I am exhausted and dead on my feet but still going no matter what... sitting down to write has not been a priority, mostly because whenever I sit, I pass out into lala land. Even now, I feel like limp spaghetti... but I'm afraid to sleep now, because I think I will probably just flat out not wake up. Such is life, I suppose.
I guess I better go stand up and shower... there's no point in sleeping tonight, I have to be up in 15 mins away. I'll work a 10 hour day, ride the mares, come home and entertain guests, and then on Saturday I'll actually have a DAY OFF... we're going to do the Color Run 5K in Dallas, provided I find the energy to drag my sorry carcass out of bed at 3am so I can feed the horses and drive to Dallas on time!
(How I am feeling right about now... except without the joy of being able to actually pass out.)
