Monday Monday

Today is Monday. In a LARGE way it is Monday. I had such trouble getting to sleep again last night. I have cut way back on caffeine but perhaps to cut it out all together. Oh how I love my caffeine though! The alarm clock went off really early, or so it seemed. But I did like I always do and got up and to work early.

This weekend was a deadly one for our local lakes. Three people drowned while fishing. The winds were high this weekend and I don't know if that had to do with one of the accidents that killed two but it is suspected. The other one forgot to take up his anchor when attempting to go to another fishing spot and got caught up in the rope. That is an awful way to die. A local hero tried to save him but wasn't able to. He was cut up by the motor and had to undergo surgery at a local hospital. Very sad indeed. A blogger friend of mine has lost her sister-in-law. It seems she had suffered with depression for years. Her vehicle was found not far from a local bridge over the Tennessee river and she has not been heard from since. It is very sad and my prayers continue for my friend. You can visit her blog here if you'd like. She needs lots of thoughts and prayers.

Oh my what a Monday for you! See, that's why all days should be weekend days don't you think? I had such a pleasant weekend that Monday seemed to be like this "I have to do what? Get up and go to work?" kind of day. Ah such is life. Hope the day ends on an upswing!

I think I just need to go ahead and retire. That way I can ride when I want, breed my mare and have time for a colt, not to mention being able to sleep until I wake up. I have abused my alarm clock so much over the years. I don't know how many times I have slapped the hell out of it! Plus I can spend more time with my hubby. He's a great guy.

I checked out the other blog, and she writes so honestly of the feelings they are having. Very sad. It must be the worst not knowing.

Retirement is great. Give it a try as soon as you can.

What terrible news! That has to be very difficult, especially the not knowing.
Hang in there!

I love the pix of Dakota. I know that the pony was upset, but the whole thing made for some great shots.
There is a world of hurt out there and it really is difficult to look past the pain of others. It affects all of us.

Ugh. Life is hard sometimes.
