Off to a rough (and wet) start

I have to admit I haven't gotten out to the barn once since joining the summer horsemanship challenge over the weekend.  People are posting picture of their rides and training sessions left and right, and I still haven't made it out to the barn at all.

There are a couple of reasons for that: weather, and just plain me being busy (as usual).

I was pretty busy on Sunday, the first full day of the challenge.  I was still dog sitting for the kids' dog while their whole family was in Aspen for the weekend, so I took him on a playdate in the morning.  In the afternoon I worked on my blog writing for Camp NaNoWriMo, and then took the dog home before my dinner-and-a-movie-plans for the evening.

Yesterday was a dreary day, overcast all day and raining off and on for most of it.  Even though I had more time yesterday, I opted not to go to the barn because of the rain.

Today has been a disaster.  I've been busy all day long, mostly with deadlines for client work.  I did reschedule and cancel a few things to make my day easier, but I've still been quite busy, and expect to continue to be so throughout the evening.

I do have plans around midday tomorrow, but hopefully I'll be able to spend some time at the barn later in the day -- rain or shine, as it doesn't look like we'll see much sun until Thursday.

I'll have some catching up to do if I want to keep on track in the challenge -- 25 rides works out to just over 3 rides a week, and nearly half of this week is already gone!
