While I'm not a Greatful Dead fan...that title seemed perfect for this post. I realize it's been a while, actually almost a year. There's several reasons for my radio silence, but mostly it was that with everything going on in my life, I didn't have the heart to blog.
Last fall was the beginning of a very rough time for me personally, as I struggled with a close family member's mental illness. At the very same time, Alex, who should have been my solace, was chronically unhappy and lame. I was miserable and didn't feel like articulating that and inflicting that on the blogosphere.
So, after treatment for my family member and for my horse, we've come out the other side a little stronger, a little happier and a little more sane :)
In exciting news, Alex went to his very first show two weeks ago! It was a big test for him, having to do a Dressage test, Cross-country course and Stadium round...had some unexpected trouble with Stadium, but we survived. Lots to work on, but also learned a ton!
So here's to getting back to blogging.
Kick on everyone :)
