I got my couch. Sort of.

So all that fantasizing about my own couch sort of came true.  I didn’t actually buy my own couch yet, but I struck off on my own this past spring, and the cat is now allowed to snuggle with me.  The current couch is old and sort of gross.  It’s due for a good cleaning and a slipcover.  But it is located in a tiny old farmhouse on the farm where Yoda lives, which means I can go give him cookies whenever I want.

Strangely, I’ve been so busy that even living at the farm, I’m not riding as much as I used to, or as much as I should be.  Yoda is fine with this, which is something I have to keep reminding myself.

After the move I had some serious anxiety – lost some weight and was down to about 124.  Now that I have a new man in my life and am calmed down, I appear to be headed back up,  but that’s ok.  I’ll take the content feeling and nice dinners 🙂

The main reason I’m posting is to upload some pics of Yoda, so I guess I’ll do that now 🙂

Yay! Snow!


We need sleigh bells



I bring you loooooooove

I love a christmas pony

So that’s what I did this weekend. In addition to auction processing and emails and payments and shipping, and baking humptymillion cookies and snuggling with my awesome boyfriend.  I’m a little exhausted. heh.

Once upon a time I fantasized about normal things, like winning the lottery, going to the Olympics, or a tall, dark, and handsome stranger.  Lately, though, the things I find myself wasting unusual amounts of time on are not quite so interesting.

Like, a couch.

Yep, I’ve been fantasizing about a couch.  It’s not just any couch, but it’s MY couch, where I can squish the pillows any way I want, take naps, and snuggle with my overweight cat without anybody acting like cats on the furniture is the Worst. Thing. Ever.

I’m not sure what that says about the current state of my life.  I try not to be a whiny complainer that obsesses over these things, and try to take each day as it comes, but the more I think about that damned couch the more I think something is kind of wrong.  The more I dwell on that, the more confused I get about whether I try to fix it or not, or if there’s even any way to do that.

I figure part of the problem is a feeling like there’s a little lack of control over my life these days.  In an attempt to combat that, and get rid of cellulite, I joined a gym over the weekend.   I guess I figure that if I can’t control other people so that I’m not disappointed in them, I can at least control me.  So today I’ll go for the first time, and hopefully work up a good sweat so that I’m feeling better about the universe when I go to bed tonight.

The blog that time forgot

Wowee zowee.

So, back in the day when the CANTER blogs got set up, apparently this one was too.  Who knew?  I created it when I created a user name.  And it’s been sitting here, completely neglected, ever since.

I have very little to say at the moment because I’m actually too busy.  But I needed to have something better than “Hello, World!” here, something that I actually wrote, or would say to other people.

“Hello World!” is just not my style, not that this really is either.

Looking forward to actually having something… anything… to say.
