Work at the vet clinic really wore me out today for some reason. I almost didn't ride after I got home even though the sun was shining. Glad I did though.
Day before yesterday Tonka got to meet the big green Parelli ball at my sister's house. I figured he would either be really scared or not really worried at all. He wasn't scared. He wasn't as interested in pushing it around as I thought he would be though.
So as of yesterday our family is without income - John's job is done. The business he put years into building up was taken over by a bigger company last September, and they kept him on as a manager but it didn't work out. We knew it was coming but it's still scary. It will be a good thing in the long run - can't get a much worse job than the one he was doing. Hopefully he'll hit the ground running with better pay and maybe even health insurance. That would be awesome. We may have to move but we'll do what we have to do. Hopefully if we do have to move it will just be up to Spokane. And I can get a job doing something or other if John doesn't - he'd be able to take a turn being the stay at home parent, which I think he'd like. And he's a much better housekeeper than I am. :)
Scary thought though, possibly having to sell our place. This was our first house, I've never had to sell one before. The thought is overwhelming. But all the work that needs to be done is a good distraction from all the uncertainty we're going through now.
I'm positive there's a great big silver lining to this cloud though. It'll all turn out fine.
