Ok I have my complaining done - I put my snow irritation out there so I'm done with it unless it snows tomorrow.
I start working on a dream in two days. I'm going to begin taking horseriding lessons. And I'm not telling a soul, except my oldest son and oldest daughter. Well and my mom - because she is the only one who reads this :) It is kind of sneaky on my part. If my husband knew, he would say it is a waste of money. Which I suppose I can see his point but yet this is something I want to do. Throughout any given week, I spend the amount of horseriding lessons on needless crap: coffee, stuff for lunch when I don't feel like eating what I brought for lunch.....it all adds up. And that is what I am using to pay for lessons. Not only that but I am going to learn the right way to care for horse and his surroundings. Someday I want to buy a riding horse. But I don't want to do it until I know how to ride, am comfortable riding, and know exactly how to care/groom a horse.
I don't think this money spent is a waste. My dad always wanted a horse but where he and my mom live, livestock is not allowed. But boy, there was no mistake how he felt about horses! I remember him talking about this horse Delila who resided on a farm nearby and about the other horses he and my mom would see on their travels. Over the years, people have given him horse books, pictures and even a stuffed horse.
I just think that it is time for me to start working on my dream. This isn't wasted money, it is an investment in my future.
