I AM ON IT. AND I AM EXCITED ABOUT IT!
Of course, it’s stifling and hot and dingbat has a nasty girth rub (bad pony mama!) that will. not. heal. and (biggest suck of all sucky things right now) my grandfather passed away on the 4th. He was ill, so he’s in a better place (Jesus H. Christ that’s cheesy), and hopefully with my grandmother, but there is still that hollow feeling that comes with loss. I, admittedly, did not know my grandfather well, despite the fact that my sister and cousins and I spent most major holidays running around his chair, so mostly I hurt for my aunts and uncles. I know this feel, and it’s not a fun feel. It’s the unfunnest feel of all feels.
I will say, however, that I will miss him taking my hand and asking me every time he saw me (without fail), “how are the hossies doin’?”
In other news, I will have legitimate content that is not boring or depressing tomorrow. I am ignoring the heat and all the other crazy New England summer things, and going riding at a coworker’s on one of her spicy, wonderful, give-it-to-me-NOW Paso Fino mares.
I may somehow stuff her into the back of my car. We’ll see how well that goes.
