New digs, and life update

First, the big news is that I got a new full time job, so I am back in the workforce and once again running around like a crazy person.

Kenny was able to cut his work schedule back to working just his normal full time hours, which are basically weekend nights, so he can be home with Hannah while I'm out at work during the weekdays. He is loving this new arrangement and I am so happy that Hannah is getting to spend more time with him. I am very grateful that we don't have to put her in day care.

I started my new job this past Monday, but this week and next I am on a 20 hour/wk schedule to ease into it a bit, to make leaving Hannah easier. I very much appreciate the compassion my boss showed when she suggested this, because leaving my baby is hard!!

I had Tuesday off, so I went to see Lucy at her new barn. Morgan moved the horses on Friday, two days before Orchard Hill, and the new barn is absolutely beautiful. Best of all, Morgan is the only trainer, so there are no issues figuring out who can teach at what times. This is a great opportunity for her and I'm so happy and excited to see where she goes from here.

Lucy loves her new living arrangement, especially because she's turned out on grass for the whole day now. At the old barn, she was only out for a few hours a day because turnout was very limited. I know she loves her turnout and I am happy she's not standing in a stall for so long.

Morgan rode her when I was there and she had some very fancy moments!


  1. Yay for the new job AND not having to pay for child care!! You must feel so much better knowing she is with her daddy all day.

    Any possibility you could keep Lucy yet? Or are you still going to go ahead with the sale?

  2. Congrats on the job!!

    Daycare is so expensive- yay that your schedules worked out so well!!

    Lucy looks great!

  3. Congratulations on the new job! ☺
    Fantastic news about Daddy & Hannah getting to spend more time together and Lucy's barn move. She looks smashing in those photos.

  4. Staying at home with daddy will be great for Hannah, and will def help your having to be away (certainly helped me). Congrats on what sounds like a great job if they have that kind of compassion. Lucy looks great.

  5. Congrats on the new job. So greatl that you and Kenny were able to arrange Your schedules for Hannah.
    Lucy looks fabulous! So fit! Look at those butt muscles!

  6. Congrats on the new job!! That is so wonderful for your entire family!!
