But now that we have Eros and Fefe, and the three at home, AND it's summer which is full of other outside obligations, I'm kind of skating by doing the bare minimum on all the other aspects of life. Laundry? Ha! Good thing I have a lot of clothes. I have crap everywhere in the house, and even had dirty dishes in the sink for a few days there (gross)! And let me tell you how long all the horses' manes are!
So my confessions is that last night, on a perfectly sunny evening with temps in the high 70's and low humidity, I took the day off from riding. I spent some time in the barn doing some organizing that I had put off, and then spent some more time doing the same in the house. I even got a load of laundry done! I felt super productive. While I still didn't really accomplish enough, it was nice to at least get a few things taken care of. And I think my body appreciated the day off too.
What I think I've learned from my evening off was that it is important to step back once in awhile. As much as I'd rather ride my horses all the time, adulting still has to happen. It's an unfortunate side effect to not being a kid anymore I suppose. Lame.
