I'm so behind!

I hate that I have been so far behind on this blog. I'm trying really hard to get the stress out of my life.

Here are the two big things that are bothering me.
1-I really need to figure out what kind of career I want so that my husband can go to school full time at some point. I probably shouldn't worry about it so much right now, but it is really difficult.

2- my parent's might have to get rid of the two horses they still have. Hopefully Doug and I can still manage to take Blue, but I don't know with the kid and the other animals. But they have another horse who has arthritis and knee problems and really is pretty much green broke. I'm so scared she'll end up in a bad place. Most the horse sanctuaries and rescues are at capacity in Michigan. I don't know how to go about getting her a good home.

I'll stop with the worries.

I am visiting Michigan, that would be why I have another lack of posting going on here. I really do mean to step up the blogging soon. But I'm still up in the air about everything. I am feeling more and more like permanently closing my Etsy and Artfire accounts. I don't know, I just feel like I need to find a full time job and sort out my career and my horses more than anything right now. I don't have time for leather, and I have no real desire to do anything with it anymore.

I will be flying home from Michigan on Sunday, I will do my best to do more posting after that!

In which I talk about evertything.

I'm so behind in EVERYTHING! I need to take a lot of stuff off my plate but I don't know what! I'm working right now, which has left me beyond busy and I'm trying to finish blog giveaway prizes (gosh I'm so sorry), work the horses (I've been failing at that), and keep the house clean (also a fail). I did finish one keychain for the blog giveaway and the other is very close to being finished, probably in the next day or two. Then I just need to crochet the owl.

I've been meaning to post about this! My new blog banner was made by a friend of mine, Steph. You can find her at her livejournal. She does some great graphics work and also takes amazing photographs and is a talented artist. Horses are her favorite subject.

Also, someone asked after my last picture post what kind of horse Blue was and I didn't get back to you, I'm sorry! However, I thought I'd post it here so anyone wondering that can know. Blue is a Morgan/QH as far as we can tell. He is still hanging out at my parents' place and he's in his mid to upper 20s (best anyone can tell anyway). His teeth are excessively worn from windsucking for years, so its sort of hard to guess his exact age, even the dentist had to do an estimate.

Blue brings me to another thing. My dad is losing his job, which means they may not be able to keep Blue and Shasta (my mom's horse). It also means I'm not as likely to have an actual wedding reception as planned because we can't afford to pay for all of it and they were going to help out, but now they probably can't. I've been so stressed lately, which is horrible for me and probably the baby, but I don't know what else to do. I'm so exhausted that I'm having a hard time completing any task.

Can I fast forward until after the kid is born?
