|The beautiful Beau.. who is now with my family in heaven and our dog Jake.|
Hello everyone.. I have been absent for two reasons. One very sad, and the other very important. I finished up last quarter with Anatomy, and I am now in Physiology. Unfortunately, the night before finals, my beautiful Beau horse was presenting with colic like symptoms. We opted for surgery, but it was not colic, it was a cyst that had lodged just right in his gut. They couldn't save him so I lost my beautiful horse. It has been a very very sad time for me and I have pretty much thrown myself into school now. This quarter it is Honors Nutrition, Statistics, Weightlifting, and Physiology. If I can't ride, I can at least focus on school.
I really enjoy weightlifting and nutrition. I just learned today that Palm oil is mostly grown on plantations in tropical climates that are not being sustained. Only 6% of Palm oil is grown sustainably. Palm oil is in 50% of all processed foods.. makes you think.
Honors nutrition class has really opened my eyes. I may even start posting some stuff from that class and my weightlifting class.
I just miss my horse though, and I am doing everything I can to not dwell too much. I have cried and cried. I cry even though I believe that my father is looking after my horse.
My husband though is building a beautiful box to put his ashes in. We had him privately cremated so that he can be with me wherever I go.. I know to some it is a little creepy, but for me, I needed to do that, so that he wasn't just gone.
If anyone is still reading this... have a fabulous rest of the week!
