Oh, the guilt

I've had a tremendously productive day, but the downside is that I don't feel like rushing out to the barn for an evening ride like I'd planned. I'm in my writer groove, and a quiet evening at home — dinner, some more work, a movie, and some time with a book — sounds really terrific to me right now.

But I feel guilty. Really, really guilty. Part of it is that tomorrow evening might be kind of busy, so I don't know how easily I'll be able to make it out to the barn. I might have to take Michael to work so that I can borrow the car and go to the barn during the day. Unfortunately, taking him to work and picking him up again tends to eat up a lot of my work time. But on the brighter side, going right to the barn and starting off my day with a ride sounds like a really good idea.

I hate missing even a day at the barn. I always feel like I'm neglecting my horse when I do that. And since I have a session with my trainer this week (after skipping the last couple of weeks — we were running on an unusually tight budget), I don't want Panama to get lazy and develop any bad habits before the session. I am still hoping to avoid upgrading to a tougher bit!
