Gah. My ride tonight was awesome. Just, awesome. I'm finally starting to come back together again and not failing every ride. Lol! Had some real nice collection work today, and my position is getting a lot better! Had a freaking awesome canter transition with a solid seat and a fantastic downward transition into a nice trot. Was all accidental by just asking for more impulsion, but it's definitely the best four strides I've ever felt in a canter. It's coming. I'VE GOT HOPE!

I really want Jane Savoie's Position DVD set. Maybe for Christmas I will get it.

When I leave the clinic, I can wear VFFs ALL THE TIME. ALL. THE. FREAKING. TIME. No more "They're different, therefore they're WRONG!" I can wear them ALLTHETIME.

The only thing I won't wear them for is horseback riding. It's allowed, and I have worn them riding before, and they were SUPER comfortable, but...I just see images of squashed feet while grooming/tacking/untacking/hand-grazing lol

I am having an absolutely freaking stellar month at work! To date, my previous best month has been 12 cars sold. Today, I hit car number *16* and I still have an entire day left in the month! On top of that, I have the highest gross in the store. I'm getting paaaaaaaid on my next check.

This is still such a new feeling, to know that I do not have to worry about bills or how much I can spend at the grocery store.

Brooks' kangaroo leather collar is done. Will be posted for purchase tomorrow once there are pics. Hurray!

In addition, I get tomorrow off. We get paid for our birthday at work, but someone was on vacation on my actual birthday last week. So I'm calling tomorrow my Unbirthday and am going to enjoy my day at home

Scoring a bag of CORE's Ocean formula for $30 instead of the usual $65+. YES!

I made a doctor's appointment. And my mom is coming with me.

I'm terrified but I'm so happy my mom will be there with me.

(She lives out of state so we only get to see each other once a month. )

AWESOME! I'm actually surprised by how easily riding is coming back to me. Posting was a bit of a challenge (I lost my posting muscles! lol), but last week I rode a TWH for the first time in over 2 years, and it was just heaven. No problems getting used to that lovely ride again. My goal is to be cantering again by the end of my 10 week session...I took me a long time to learn to canter because I have **** for balance and it took a while to work it up. Then I stopped riding only a couple months after learning to canter

I did canter last week, but it wasn't intentional

I saw a recruiter today, now that hubby is out and there are no more family care plan issues, I'm going into the reserves. I have to lose 20 lbs but I don't think it'll be super difficult, and I need to do it anyway. I'll be going in E5 which is super exciting for me, thanks college! LOL!

I finally graduated to Dressage length stirrups, which helped get me back on my seat bones a lot, which then helped me sit the canter a lot better. For some reason, when riding with hunter length stirrups I really struggle with getting my hips underneath me and I like to ride on my crotch. My body will be very relaxed, but I will be all over because I'm leaning forward with rigid arms.

I need to get some videos. Lol
