That's right...this post is dedicated to the delightful Joey, the horse I've been riding for the past couple weeks.
I debated going to the barn at all since I had a midterm and a video project due today (which of course I saved till the last minute because I don't know how to make videos...makes perfect sense, I know). I had to stay up till 1am to finish that, and I woke up at 6am...and then 6:15 am...and then 7 am to go over my study guide and run through my flash cards for a few hours before my 10am exam. To top it off, I had a sick, feverish boyfriend to look after, although he very sweetly made one of my favorite dinners for me--scalloped potatoes and breaded chicken. It's so good to eat something hearty when the wind sounds like it's about going to tear the house down.
I'm glad I rode, because I was actually working productively all night rather than letting that post-work exhaustion wash over me and squandering time. I don't know how long that project would have taken otherwise! And how could I not feel lucky to have this little munchkin in my life?
|This is my good side.|
Moral of the story: Go to the barn...then do your homework! Or vice versa, but what's the fun in eating dessert after dinner?
