Life in Numbers

Last time I posed in late March, I thought maybe things were starting to get better.  That would have been accurate if I had instead thought that maybe my life was about to fall apart.  So let's try and revisit this in numbers....

1 - long term romantic relationship ended

1 - fall off the horse when he spooked grazing on the buckle that messed my back up pretty nicely

1 - freak hail storm that trashed my car.  Mine was one of the few that wasn't totaled (because it is so new) so instead after about $11k in repairs I will have a car I can likely never sell

2 - cats euthanized.  On the same fucking day.  That day can be lit on fire and never heard from again.

1 - birthday that hopefully goes down as the worst birthday I ever have

And as the icing on shit cake.....

6 - weeks in a walking cast after breaking my 5th metatarsal.

I was just getting back into riding after my back injury when this happened so I guess I like paying for other people to ride my horse.  He at least has been doing very well in training.  His punk teenager phase continues so I am not too sad to let the pros deal with him right now.  He isn't scary or dangerous, but just has more opinionz than I need at the moment.

Things can always be or get worse, but it would be really nice if the world cut me some slack for awhile instead.
