Getting my Mojo back

The Winter is a tough time for the Jp1 because I suffer from S.A.D. This year was one of the worst I've had. It started in 2003, I didn't do anything besides go to work and come home for about 6 months.
This year has been not so great, I wanted to cancel Christmas, stay in bed until St Patty's Day and generally shut out the world. Sounds fun.... Not so much...
My horsie world wasn't what I wanted, dreams dashed and I needed something to look forward too.
So, I practiced with a new drill team last Monday for giggles. It was so fun! Star seemed to enjoy it and she desperately needs a focus and a job in her mind right now. She is coming 8 and just a glorified arena pony. I need a new dream and focus. It seems that if my horsie life isn't going well, the rest of my life doesn't go well either.

I 've seen some drill teams perform and been impressed and seen some and been embarrassed for them, I never want to be the latter. Thankfully the gals on our team are all OCD perfection-istas like myself. WHEW! I was so glad to hear we were all on the same page.

Last night was the first team meeting.

And here is where my blogger peeps come in.
We need a name. The names suggested last night were funny but not something that stuck.

So, throw some our way.

I would love to see what others come up with.

Hugs and warm muzzles

Hey Jocy, I'm so happy that things are looking up for you with this new drill team. It's never fun to have SAD and feel down and have no direction.

Sounds like you and Star are going to have a lot of fun and purpose now.

Drill Team Names?
(But what about that lone male?)

Gresham Ghost Riders
Mt. Hood Horse Posse
Columbia River Renegades

Jocelyn, my package came yesterday! Thank you so much! It was amazing. I can't wait to try out the recipes in the book, even if it doesn't have Chacon. :)
