Oh no! Vibes for Aikon!

My vet told me to wait until a year to see if Recon's second nut would drop. Turns out he doesn't have a second!

When am I supposed to stop feeling anxious/unsettled? Even when I'm relaxing, I'm really not...feels like I'm just trying to bide time before going to do something I really don't want to do.

I'm kind of over it.

I don't like my job, am stressed at work, and am too tired to do anything productive when I get home. It would be a slight consultation if I made more, but I don't. There is also no opportunity for advancement.

DH knows I want to be home more and knows I'm not happy and keep telling me I just quit and stay home for a while, then if I feel I need to do something get a job I really enjoy. I keep saying no, but it's getting more tempting by the day....

Beanie, it will get better, and you are cared about by many, many people. I wish we lived closer--DH is great with computers. (((Hugs)))

I hate Wednesdays. I get up at 6:30am, start work at 8, get off at 7pm. I have Thursdays off so I would LIKE to do things after work and enjoy my evening, since I don't have to get up in the morning. But, by the time I get home, eat dinner, take the dogs for a walk, take a shower... it's like 9:30/10pm and I am completely exhausted and feel like I don't even have time to do anything. I have some things I wanted to get done tonight but I'm tired and will probably just read a chapter in my book and go to bed. I don't have the energy to be productive.

It's amazing the difference 1 hour makes. When I get off at 6pm, I feel like I have way more time to do things after work.

I have started grinding / clinching my teeth while I am awake again (I have had a habit of doing it while I sleep sometimes, but now I have started doing it when I am awake too. Meh :/

Not much of a vent, but I had to have brackets for my seats custom made because race seats are absolutely not designed with women in mind, and they aren't here yet. Track day is in a little over two weeks, so there's still time. Also need harnesses, and I can't find purple Corbeaus anywhere.

I love the animals (race horses are a different kind of cool ) I love being outside & I love horsey barn smells
Sadly all we have around here is pleasure barns that don't ride their horses correctly. I still wouldn't mind working as a barn person somewhere, but I'd LOVE a racetrack job. I've been seriously looking into an OTTB for my next horse. Pretty sure that's the way I'm going to go.

I know there is at least one racetrack on the east side of the state, but I don't think any over here (I'm on the west side).

Did they go in looking for the second? They can be extremely hidden in there...we had one dog at work whose testicle was found way back and close to his spine. Long surgery to find that one

I think you have harness tracks up there right? I am not familiar with those horses but I am sure the fundamentals of husbandry for them is the same.

Bless you for considering an OTTTB, so many "non race" people think they are all crazy, stupid brainless idiots. Which is NOT true. I love to see OTTTB's in the regular riding world, is shows people that there is life after racing .

I wish you were closer, there are a fee trainers here that are looking to downsize their barns (the horses are fine physically but they are just not fast)
