Hello! :)

I know, I know. What is the point of having a blog if I never write on it! I have been meaning to write this post for a while now, but never got around to it. So many things have been going on, they are hard to keep up with. And I like to give you something interesting to read. But for now, just a life update...

Lately my life is been busy. But it is hard to say lately, cause it has been over a year now. And there is NO end in sight! i just keep adding things on to the to do list, keep agreeing to commitments. I must like it! As for what I have been keeping busy with:
  1. Working 20 hours a week at the farm
  2. Working 8 hours a week at Arborg Vet Hospital
  3. Coaching Pee-Wee Soccer
  4. Playing Adult Soccer
  5. Youth
  6. Riding my horse
  7. Taking care of my animals
  8. Learning piano
  9. Knitting
  10. Sewing a dress
  11. Trying to organize the house
And all of those things I love! I have never been happier, but I am also choosing to be happier. I am trying to be content with what I have, but somedays it is SO HARD when I think of all the things wrong, mostly with my house.

I love learning piano. I love the challenge. I love when I go from frustrated over how to play a song to playing to smoothly! So rewarding!!

I am so glad to have a horse to ride. I have been riding Chai, my newest addition. He is a 15 year old Quarter Horse I saved from the meat market, and he is GREAT! He has a good head on his shoulders, he just needs some time invested in him! The other one, Zaiyah, is going to training whenever Kathleen gets back from Wyoming!

I am ALMOST done knitting my baby blanket. This is the one I have been knitting for over 4 years, but I unraveled it and restarted it at Christmas time. Done in 6 months? Not bad!

I am REALLY loving playing soccer, it is so nice to be on that field again. I just love soccer. We are a soccer family for sure. I like it better than hockey....

Youth is winding down. I had a blast this year. I love being part of Youth and I never want to give it up! Abundant Springs was great! We had a great turn out there and I think the youth had a really great time. We played an awesome game on Sunday. Basically the kids had to run around to station and answer a bible trivia question. If they got it right, they got a stamp and moved on. If they got it wrong, they had to do the challenge at that station! It really made them search their bible to find the answers!

This summer is looking crazy busy for me already. I do not have a job this summer. The first four weeks are open, but I can fill them going to camp. The fifth week the youth are going up north to a bible camp to staff it. The 6th and 7th week Eric and I are heading off on a road trip to Montreal and Quebec City and Toronto. I have a Partylite conference in Quebec city for 3 days and the rest of the time we will be tourists! Then the last week of summer it is back to work! I am going to be working back at Gimli Vet Services in the fall, 3-4 days a week. I am excited to go back actually. Because I will be gone for the whole summer, I am not sure if I want to use the first 4 weeks to go to camp. I think I will go for 2 weeks for sure. But I would have NO time with my animals this summer if I did that, and I would never get to ride my horses. I don't want to be selfish, but I don't want my animals to be ignored either. If I could go home a couple times a week, or even sleep at home, I might go for the whole time. I just love decisions!

Loved your post Lindsey! I don't get to chat with you very often so it was nice to catch up with how you're doing! I don't know if I'm coming home until Krista's wedding so if you're in the city with some time to kill let me know! :)
You should go to camp the 3rd week! I think I'm going to be going!
Hope you have a great day today! Love you!
