I Miss My Horse

This has been a tough weekend. My husband is away with his bike club at a bicycle race in Pennsylvania this weekend. I'm on full-time mom duty. While the kids are just loving the exclusive "mommy time", these have been two of the most gorgeous summer days so far and I have been feeling the "call of the saddle".

I have been dealing with a nasty head/chest cold that showed up on Tuesday with aches, fever and a sore throat and ended any riding I could have done last week to keep ahead of the weekend I knew I was going to miss. That, and the weather has been rough with wicked thunderstorms popping up in the afternoons and again in the evenings to kill my after work rides.

The kids lucked out, the stable where they take their lessons has an indoor arena so the thunderstorms didn't cut out their riding time! I am so NOT prepared for my Dressage lesson tomorrow night...

That's what being a mommy is all about. Glad the kids got to ride, and I'm sure your lesson will go fine. Hope you feel better soon too!
