Just curious how some of you fit in riding time? After a busy 9 1/2 hour work day where I was literally on my feet all day long, I am exhausted! It’s almost 7:30 in the evening and I am just getting home. My feet hurt, I haven’t had dinner, or a proper lunch for that matter, my patience is almost to a zero right now, and the horses were eager to get their dinner too. I always find that when I try to ride when I feel like I am on a strict time restriction or already exhausted, that is when things go wrong and frustrations build quickly, so no riding for me tonight.
How do I fit it all in and find balance in life with a measly 24 hours in a day???
7 a.m. out of bed, get coffee
7:45 see teenage daughter off to school
8:30 morning feed and check in on Mother
8:50 arrive at work
6:40 p.m. leave work
6:45 check on Mother, call horses in from pasture, feed horses, give meds-supplements as needed, pitch a few piles of manure.
7:20 back at home, collapse on couch, dream of served dinner, too exhausted to cook, thank goodness husband went to visit a friend this evening and daughter is at after school job… my bunions are killing me!!!
7:40 look out window and feel guilty for wasting daylight and perfect weather for riding 😦
