Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

I usually make new year's resolutions as a general guide but they rarely go as planned and by this point, I am not surprised.

Last year started off a little rough. An autonomic nervous system dysfunction of some sort seems to be a permanent thing. Basically, in short, my heart likes to beat faster than normal when I am standing and my blood pressure holds fairly well 9/10 times. I'm like a little hummingbird who has to eat a ton of salt, food, and way more water than I care to drink to help deal with symptoms. It does explain why I get tired easily. Not horrible but it ain't great. There are days I feel perfectly fine and then times not so much but in general, I do well. We planned the year before to buy a horse in July 2022. The problem I was dealing with made me wonder if I could handle a horse. Being able to stand and be physically fit is kind of a nice thing to have especially around horses and you know everyday life! I had to take a huge step back in everything and really figure out things. Seeing different doctors and various tests with not a lot of answers is annoying. Having a great PCP has helped a lot and she helped me navigate all this. I just have to know my physical limits and not push myself too much. I know I gripe a lot about Nursing, especially after covid, however, it is flexible enough that being able to go PRN works out.

I did not get to do as much art as I had hoped to but that is ok. That is what this year is for right? Haha we shall see. I did get to do a good bit of photography, just need to sit down and edit them.

As for the #horsegoal. We planned to get an adult horse however that went a different direction in May with Carbon. He has been such a jewel. He makes me work but is patient enough when I need a break. I am excited to work with him this year especially since his back legs are doing really well. I can't believe he is going to be 8 months soon! Dash is doing well and he has met Carbon a few times. Carbon had licked Carbon on the nose a few times and totally ok with Carbon. Carbon is a little unsure of him they seem to get along pretty well! We pulled off family pictures for 2022.

A little late - but Happy New Year. I hope January has been treating you all well. I really love the family pic from this year! Carbon and Dash both posed magnificently.

Knowing your limits (in all walks of life) is always good. Hope you all continue to have an excellent 2023. Wishing you happiness and many adventures! ♥️

Thank Angele. No worries, time flies! Where did February go? Looking forward to spring and summer. The tulips and crocus are coming out so that is always a good sign!
