And here we go, life's waiting to begin
Here's the other big news: I'm moving to California. G asked me to come out, so I am, sometime this summer. I'll pack up the stuff, the dog & cats, and the horse, and we'll all traipse off to rent a house in Dublin or Pittsburg, some place at the end of a BART line. I'm selling the lil mini goats now, before I get any more attached to them. The chickens will go shortly before I move, and I'll give Billy back to his former owner.
We'll rent out the house here. The sales market is utterly dismal, but it should rent well. We'll move back in 5 years or so, and either move back in here or (hopefully!) buy something a little further out, maybe in Palomino Valley now that I've ridden out there and fallen in love. ;)
There. Now that I've told you, you'll understand if I get maudlin about my beautiful high desert in some posts, or if I get sick of the stupid wind and sand in other posts.
Dixie news: She was sleepy and tired on Sunday, pretty perky on Monday, and completely back to her old self yesterday. I feel ok about asking her to do a 50 next weekend. God I hope it's warm enough to give her a quick bath the Friday before the ride! Right now I'm leaning toward NOT taking Cersei - the vet check (for the 30 and the 50) is out of camp, so Cers would be all alone ALL DAY.
