It’s kind of funny, I’ve been ticking off “bucket list” items with Chroi sometimes without even knowing they were on that list in the first place! 🌟 Completing driving training (although, really, training is a never-ending thing) 🌟 Driving along the road, through my favorite neighborhoods, on the walking/biking/riding loop 🌟 Driving through a tunnel… Continue reading Ready, Set, Show!
Note, this post was originally written only a few months after we brought Chroi “home,” and it sat in my drafts for a long time because…. Well, I don’t really know why. Maybe it just was too personal, or maybe I didn’t feel like I’d said it the way I wanted. Whatever the reason, here… Continue reading The Soul of the Family
From pandemic to unemployment to the death of a deeply loved family member; from boredom and isolation and uncertainty of the future… I am feeling quite stuck. It absolutely does not help that I do not have a single safe, functional cart with which to drive Chroi in search of solace. I started with nothing… Continue reading Stuckness
I recently was officially hired – genuinely went through an application, interview, and offer process! – and now my status has changed from Stay At Home Mom to Working Mom! But it also means change and adjustment for my family, and I’ve been afraid of that for a long time. In fact, it’s almost solely what… Continue reading SAHM: I thought I wanted to go back to work, but I was WRONG!
My domain just renewed, so I suppose that means I should “renew” a commitment to sharing more. I’m not particularly sure why, exactly, since I’m not here for the ‘likes’ or the money, but I’ll give it a go. I always wanted a website of my very own, so shouldn’t I enjoy it? What should… Continue reading Musing
Life takes no prisoners. Dreams don’t make themselves come true. It’s easy to become mired in the day-to-day, isn’t it? Two and a half years with Chroi now, and so many big life changes that came on her heels (fetlocks?). All this time passed, and what do I have to show for it? In March… Continue reading Is Anyone Out There? Is Anyone In Here?
I’m happy about our driving this week. Today Chroi plodded around the paddock like she was half asleep, so we opted for a change of scenery. The drive to the ranch was recently re-done with a nice deep layer of gravel. Not pea-gravel either; this gravel has big chunks of rock, thick and crunchy! The… Continue reading Driving progress
I was taught that the more eyes you could get on a project, paper, or anything really that you’re doing that you want to improve at, the better. So I’ve gotten out of my comfort zone and bugged a few people to come and assist me and Chroi. One of those people is Julie, who… Continue reading Total Inadequacy
“No hoof, no horse.” I never considered myself “one of those people,” a [gasp] barefooter. But I guess maybe I am….
After more than a year of planning, And more than a handful of “roadblocks,” Chroi is officially “in cart!” I wish I had documented and updated as much as I’d originally “intended” (something about paving stones for a specific road…?), because it’s been quite a process and a project! From introducing her to the… Continue reading Chroi is pulling a cart! & I’m pulling all-nighters…
