I love the holidays - but Day Light Savings and the shorter days really cramps my style!
This is my schedule everyday M-F.
0600 - Get up & get ready for work. Since our daughter bought us a new bed - this is the hardest part of my day!
0645 - Leave for work. I have to give myself almost 2 hours just in case there is an accident. It is really boring since someone STOLE the radio out of my car. Geeezzz - I don't even get to listen to Christmas Carols!
0830 - start work
1700 - get off of work
1830 - If I don't have any errands to run, I get home from work and start feeding the animals and most recently I have to clean KC's room since he seems to have forgotten that he is suppose to be house trained ..Since he was hit by the car, he is still a bit mentally off.
1900 - go upstairs and get something to eat.
1930 - change clothes and do a few inside things..still trying to get the Christmas stuff up and OMG - I still have to wrap so many gifts before Emily, Madison and Trestin get here on the 13th!!
2000 - back down to the barn. Tack up Dominus (young horse that is not finished) that must be worked everyday...even if it is dark. I started to run beside him just to fit in some exercise for myself as well and he thinks that is fun. I think it reminds me of just how old my body is...cause this is just plain fricken painful!
2030 - wash Dominus, towel him dry while he is trying to bite me (remember - he is young and kind of stupid)..and cross tie him in the stall while I clean the other dirty stall. Sounds simple - but again, this is very physical.
2045 - finish up other barn chores - last night I was putting new bows on the wreaths and hanging them on the outside barn windows in the dark. Since it was dark this morning when I left for work - I have no idea if they looked okay or not!
2100 - go up stairs and attempt to wash the horse smell off of me.
2130 - crawl into our wonderful new bed.
2131 - pass out
2140 - answer phone cause hubby is calling to say he is on his way home.
2141 - pass out again
2230 - wake up in a panic because Chrissy (our resident loud mouth dog) is barking telling me hubby is home...unless I am so exhausted that I have already reached that level or REM sleep that is closest to death!
This weekend I am covering a horse show and the very next weekend is when I am flying to AZ. to pick up Emily, Madison and Trestin only to get right back on a plane to come home. Thank God I work for an airline!!!
All I really want for Christmas is a wife!
