Feeling the Sun

I know that sounds really strange but I've felt a little better the last few days. More than a little. I really think the weather has a lot to do about it and not being able to work my horse doesn't help either. I did however, use the late night time before pet-sitting again to catch up with some friends. I told myself that I need a break and I need some date nights. So what did I do after my 3 weeks away from home?

Friday: Got together with Deb for some pony time and a coffee. Movie date night with Ms. Kate. Unfortunately Amanda couldn't make it but she was there in spirit! We saw "The Other Woman" and I think K and I both peed a little. If you haven't seen it yet (man or woman), SEE IT! Absolutely hilarious and full of life lessons. Guys a assholes hahaha. Unless you kind of a look like Gerard Butler... Then you're awesome.

Saturday: Breakfast with Sherry and Tom, then off to Gillette with Deb. We went to an amazing store that I just LOVED. Probably the most girly store I've been to (other than ULTA... which is also amazing) in forever. It's called Charming Charlie's and let me tell you, I don't know if it was the open atmosphere or the way they organized the colors... I loved it. I mean LOVED it. And I have to go back before we go see Clinton Anderson, there's a hat that's screaming my name. <3

After that we went to Trader Joe's and I bought wine! WINE!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't drink wine. But hey, it was called "Dark Horse" so I had to. We bought both the cabernet and chardonney (now that I know what that is). The it was to ULTA and of course, ended at Bass Pro Shop. Then we headed home. I met Sharon at the barn and got to play with Diamond and jumped on Comic for a bit. Then I made my way BACK to Deb's for some pizza and wine... And dancing around the living room.

Sunday: I worked...

Monday: I worked... Dinner and ice cream with Deb.

Tuesday: I worked...

Wednesday: I worked... THEN WENT LINE DANCING! I think this is where my mood really changed. I finally got to go out with A and my friend Morgan. We met the BO, her husband, and Randi at the M-Barn. Did I know what I was in for? No way. But can I tell you that I can't remember the last time I smiled this much. Morgan and I talked about it on the way home. It was the first time in a while since I just did my thing and didn't think about anything else. Not about work, not about everything with Brantley... Nothing. I can't wait to go next week.

... I took a break Thursday and now I'm pet-sitting for the weekend. But things are still looking up. I worked Sunday-Saturday but then I get two days off and hopefully time with the horse.

Things have been rough with Brantley. He hasn't been himself... At all. To the point where he's been shying and running not only through gates, but people. Today I got out of work early and went to play with him with a new look... "Amazing Horses Just Don't Happen". I'm going to take our relationship day by day. He's meant to be with me. I'm meant to be with him. I see myself in him so much every time I put the halter on my face and it's a journey that we will struggle and prevail through. Can I just say, Brantley dragged his nose along the ground, ears floppy, quiet eyes, tail popped... I just smiled.

We've got this.

I feel like... If I saw you not in the horse world I would have NO idea who you were. I will have to message you or something when we go again. Have to get Kate out soon!
