Panama's competition

I had another busy weekend, and didn't get over to the barn to ride. It was for a good cause, though: I was getting my car running again. It has been sitting for two years, while my husband and I shared a car.

Before I brought transported my horse to Denver, not having a running car was not a big deal. I work from home, so I don't have to commute to and from a job, and most errands could be done in the evenings after my husband got home from work. Once my horse was here, though, I had to start taking my husband to work on days that I needed to go out to the barn. I'm not a good morning person, so lately that has only been a couple of days a week.

Getting my car running helps Panama, in a way, because now I'll have fewer restrictions on visiting him. On the other hand, my car is also competition for him: Working on my car reminded me how much I like it, and there is a pretty good chance that I may skip a visit to the barn here and there in favor of working on or detailing my car!
