*Disclaimer: not really a horsey post*
I'm having one of those weeks where I find myself saying.... "I just need to survive this week." more than anything else.
I'm finishing up at my part-time job I quit, fighting some kind of cold/flu that is draining all my energy, my regular job is insanely busy, I'm organizing gifts/cake and a little get-together for my husband birthday, and sadly yesterday I had to stand up to someone who said/did some very hurtful things around the time my husband and I got married. Being a grown up is so annoying.
The last point (standing up to an a*hole) has been the hardest and most difficult. I really really hate confrontation but at some point you can't let people treat you like crap. The offender in question has told people that my husband and I are "stuck up yuppies", which is ridiculous. We are too poor to be yuppies and have never been anything but nice to this guy. He was asked to be a groomsman and declined because he wasn't willing to take the time off work. And then was a no-show to the wedding, along with his brother and girlfriend. Which was not only a waste of money but kind of put a damper on our day. He sent a cowardly text with a weak excuse. He's been a close friend to my husband and I've known him for over six years. It was disappointing to have to call him out on his behavior to get a proper apology.
I am really missing my horses and if I don't get out to see them tonight I think I will lose my mind!
On a happy note...I got paid today and plan to hit the local tack store at some point this week :)
