Back in the saddle

So Joe and I had a fun filled busy weekend as usual.  We have been working away at farm projects and things are still shaping up down at the barn area.  I swear it is never ending though.  If only I didn't have that little dream picture in my head life would be oh so much easier. I decided to start riding and teaching lessons again.  I taught my first lessons since the "mom years started".  I feel like a new person, I realized a huge part of my life was missing a part that was much to important to not be there.  I also have an awesome opportunity (thanks to the Stroupe family) to get back in the saddle.  I started today, after I rode I had to chuckle to myself wow...I am truly out of shape. I was sore after riding only one horse. To put it lightly I couldn't go compete in the open jumpers at the moment, huge difference from a few years ago. So back in the saddle isn't as simple as I thought.  Time to work hard and get back in shape.  Thanks to family and my hubby for helping out so I can ride again, it means the world to me.  So more projects, riding and hopefully a soon to be back in shape housewife.  More to come!!
