1. Get Eddie Home
I did. And then I had to say goodbye again. I will post one day, when I'm able, about this day.
2. Pay down debt/scub credit reports
Work in progress, as of course fighting banks is like fighting city hall (or so I've heard).
3. Building dream house/barn
I never thought I'd actually be "building" my dream home. I think I can call it that. I'm basically starting with the frame and that's it!
4. Set up a pole barn
Check! I'd like to get another one, though. I need to sort a few things out to make sure I can afford it.
5. Buy a horse trailer
Check! And I love, love, love it!
6. Get everything I need to show Paula in 2011
Wow, so close on this one! I've got two shirts, chaps, clacks, boots, hat, show saddle and bridle. I need a couple of nice show pads to go with my shirts and in the spring I'll have to custom order a tail for her. I did buy a tail but it's too white, so that will be saved back for Moose (it matches his perfectly). I need a tail with streaks of dark gray in it for Paula.
7. Start JJ
JJ is now in Colorado and will go into training in March to become a youth horse for a lucky little girl! He's going to love it, and his new home absolutely adores him. I have done quite a bit of ground work with his brother and sister, though, so I'll say this goal changed slightly, but I'll still call it a success!
8. Lose weight
I plead the 5th (sigh). I DID get healthier through running.
9. Update White Horse Resource
I tried. I'm thinking of taking the sight down. My own ambition is thwarted by the lack of hours in a day.
10. Everything else
Let's see, I bought a car, started a garden, cleaned up around the house, cleaned up the jungle behind the house, started reroofing the garage, laid electrical line, went to Colorado twice, said goodbye to our wonderful farm dog, found good homes for a couple of lovely horses, welcomed Moose into my life, almost sold Moose to a new friend in France, welcomed Russell and then figured out he's better suited to living with my brother and his wife, saw my brother graduate with a 4.0 from college (!!!!), took up running and got the fever (and some great shoes--thanks, Mom!), welcomed Eddie's first granddaughter, learned a lot, hurt a lot, loved a lot, and lived a lot.
So now I'm contemplating my 2011 resolutions. Of course it will include some items on the 101 things in 1001 days list, but it will also include some proper short-term goals, like
working on the house,
catching Betty up on her training,
