Balance is Hard

Like may bloggers I'm engaged in a constant balancing act between horses, work and life. Lately I've been really struggling with that balance.

GreyDog captures my feelings perfectly
I'm closing in on the final stretch of my degree. I've been working towards my BComm very slowly, taking evening classes. My first post secondary credits are actually from 2005, making this the 12 year program as I am set to graduate in April (I haven't attended university consecutively, there's a few gaps in there).

In my push to graduate by April I have been loading up on classes. Generally I have been taking classes a maximum of 2 nights a week. This semester (and next) I'm in 3 classes. The extra class, coupled with an insanely busy fall at work and my other half returning to the oilfield (meaning he's gone 14 days at a time) has thrown my balance right out the window.

I feel like there is not a single area of my life that is receiving the attention it deserves. As a consequence I really have no time or motivation to blog. Which really sucks because I love being able to go back and see the progression.

Th good news? Sullivan is off on an adventure with my mom. Dee is home and is feeling better than ever. William continues to be the very best baby racehorse. Chase is happy and mugging for treats at every opportunity. Having them at home is great because even though I don't get to ride as much as I want I still get to see them every day.

My happy place

There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot wait until April when I will (finally!!!!) graduate. Until then I'm just going to try to keep balancing everything that needs to be done without burning out.
He tries so hard
And because I'm apparently a masochist I've also started applying to grad schools.
