Barn building continues ... into summer. What we had thought would be a project finished mid-winter, turned into late spring, turned into ... please oh please let me have a barn before winter hits again! And all due to circumstances beyond our control - snow and snow and snow, then county bureaucracy. Good times. But so much has happened on the barn in the last week, I can't believe it! Things continue to go in an order I didn't expect (just today, 4 windows were put into the walls -- we have no roof, and only framing on the walls, but we have windows!). Elmer and Sam, of Quality Buildings, and their team are doing a beautiful job and have been such a pleasure to work with! I keep telling them I am going to make them crazy before this is all finished, and I think they're starting to believe me (poor Sam had to move the entire framing for 2 windows today by about 8". And he smiled the whole time as I told him they had to move. Poor Sam. But they had to move. Is there an eventing barn-building equivalent of a "bride-zilla??" Oops, I might be that girl.)
I never even asked for a pony! And then I got one - uh oh! Then there was school, a job, yada yada - and now I'm back! I have a "real" job that pays the bills for a REAL horse! I guess that's about the best life a horse crazy girl in her 30s could ask for.
