Sorry Everybody....just a small hiatus

Don't worry everyone, I have just been taking a little break from the blog for a while. It's just been so damn cold with minimal riding and lots of working and just chilling here at home. To give you all some updates. Possum is doing great and I have hardly been working him, maybe only once a week. Yesterday actually had a lot of fun. I warmed him up in the arena yesterday and then with a couple friends from the barn we went galloping out inthe fields through the snow. We laughed and Possum kicked everyone's butts!! It was good to ride my boy and spend some time with him.

The past weekend my roomie and I went to a horse trade show and got to look around and do some shopping. I drooled over horse trailers, browsed tack and supply displays and even bought some bran mash treats for Possum. I saw a few people that I knew and it was good to get out and hang with other horse people.

The dogs are doing great as well. We've been spending lots of time together and they are just the best thing for me. As I write this now Abby is sitting on the couch with me and my cat Shadow is above my head.

In terms of my love life, things are progressing. I am totally smitten with Greg and we have been spending lots of time together. I actually just came back from being at the arcade with him and his son and his sister and her two boys. Our friendship is as strong as ever and we just have a blast with one another. He even said to me tonight that he likes the real Molly. To explain, we joke with one another a lot and trade insults and I made a pact today to him that i would only be nice to him. he said that he likes the sassy aditude mixed with my niceness. What a guy huh?

To check in with myself, things are just OK. I find myself being a little deperssed, maybe because of the weather or not riding as much or just the day to day work, but I have a hard time getting my ass out of bed and getting motivated. Maybe that's why I just havn't been motivated to blog lately. I need to pull myself up by my boot straps and guve myself a kick in the pants. I still love my job and really have no excuse to be feeling down. Going to talk to my doctor at my next appt about my meds and how I'm feeling.

Other than that things are pretty much the same. "G" is doing his own thing. I can't remember if I blogged about this but a month ago he got an OUI. He's going to counseling and seeing a drug counselor. We have very little contact with one another, and when we do it's only by phone. I'm just glad to have Greg as a great friend and supporter and I need to not be in such a rush to jump into anything like a relationship!!!

Well that's about it for now. Leave a comment about some blog ideas and to checkl in with what everyone has been doing.

Glad to hear all is well. We all need a break every once in awhile. I will be taking a short one at my 100th post to work on some other writing projects.

When it's cold and dreary, EVERYBODY has a hard time dragging themselves around. It's not just you. I think in a primitive incarnation, we were a species that hibernated.

Glad to hear things are basically good. I think this time of year a lot of us get a crazy case of the blues. Especially those of us who are horse people in not so great winter climates!
Is an OUI like a DUI?

Glad to hear some things don't change...and that you are doing well with the new job, and that your family...Possum...dogs and cat are doing well.
I miss our talks in our old office and think about you often.
I hope you can hook up with the old gang when we meet for lunch next month.
About the dreary will get better...longer days...warmer sum ... and good friends.

so happy to see a post from you. I do understand the need for a break, just happy you are okay. :o)
Things sound good for you. So glad to hear it. You're not alone in feeling a bit blue lately. I am ALWAYS happy, and this month has been kindof depressing. So cold, and being stuck indoors and sedentary just doesn't help the endorphin production. So hang in there. Spring isn't too far away. Meanwhile, enjoy your freindship with Gregg, your sweet horse, and your great job.
I keep reminding myself to count my blessings, and it seems to help. This dreary cold winter is almost over!! :o)
Glad you're back!!
