A quick personal note. Things between my husband and I are starting to get better. We went to counseling. He was able to express how he felt and feel like I really heard him and his concerns. He also agree to work toward a compromise. So one step at a time we are heading in the right direction. He even seems much happier just by getting to get it all out. So good good news.
Just few posts ago I laid out our schedule and plan for this season. After last weekend I felt like I needed to re-evaluate a bit. I have not made any decisions for sure yet but I am thinking we won't be doing the IEA HT the first of June. I will most likely be going as a volunteer instead of a competitor. I am ok with this. But like I said I have not made a clear decision about it yet. My full decision will be made when I go down to lesson with Dorothy and clinic with Peter. I will know more then what direction will be best for us to head. There are also big decisions on my mind concerning the future but I think that merits a separate post.
I hope all of you that are going to Rolex this weekend have a fabulous time. I have chosen to stay home in light of all of my marital issues as of late. I am saving up my 'horse credits' for the real important stuff. Like leaving for 3 days in just two weeks to go to Lexington for the clinic! I am excited and super anxious that we will not be as prepared as we should be. I haven't been on my horse since Saturday and that needs to change and it will today.
Edited to add this:
This goes to show that a still photo can really be decieving. If you looked at these on their own and I was not as honest of a person as I am you would think we rocked the show last weekend.
