{January 12, 2013}   Hopefully Cautious

Well, we are now on day 12 of 2013. I’m trying to be hopeful with how this year will turn out but remain cautious because of the news on taxes going up, politicians ignoring the constitution (yet again, big surprise), my plans on getting back into school, ect.

The biggest news at this point is that I do now have another job. I now work for one of the barns that had interviewed me during the summer whose other employee at the time chose to take on the extra hours but who has now moved on. I started train with this barn back on December 26th and seem to be doing well at this point. I’m enjoying being back at work and pulling in a paycheck. This barn is already teaching me quite a bit. The side that I’m working has 30 horses all of whom get different feed, and supplements. The feed here is actually weighed where as every other place that I’ve worked was just a scoop of food. Theses horses also get hay in a different manner in that some of the hay racks are “packed” others are “full”. I have also learned how to drive a 4 wheeler, and the first time that I got on the thing I ended up running myself over (smooth I know), but all I ended up with is a pretty looking bruise on my calf.

Mom is doing well and plans on retiring from teaching at the end of the year. No idea yet if she will be going back to school to get her Doctorate degree or if she will get another job or if she’s fed up enough to tell the government to shove it. With her birthday being next month I need to find her a birthday gift….hmmm, what to get?….. I know that we will be attending the charity Mardi-gras ball back home at the end of the month. Other than that not much to report.

I guess I’ll blog again later because that’s all I’ve got for now. Hope everyone has a great 2013.
