porch. I did this, for otherwise, he might not have delivered the item today. As it was, we met him on the road where he did the handoff.
We went to town where I resumed my fitness training. Ben Cagel, my teacher, spent a lot of time of time with me, showing me how to do things correctly. I knew that it was good that I resumed my training, otherwise I would have slacked off and fallen through the cracks. I do, when he has me do specific exercises, see how this is going to improve my riding. Today, for example, we worked on my having my hips back and my knees loose. This is what Susan Harris was working on with me when we were doing posting/two-point transitions.
We returned home. I wanted to get the horses out, but instead I scooped and shoveled out the front area of the paddock. Otherwise, I’d later have to deal with snow and poop mixed. I also shoveled the path to the tack room; otherwise I’d have to trudge through the snow, which is something I hate doing. I also emptied the manure buckets into the compost station; otherwise it would freeze in the buckets and not thaw until spring.
I next trudged up to the playground of higher learning and put away my agility equipment. This necessitated my digging buried poles, cones, and buckets out of the now deep snow, and putting all in the shanty. Several otherwises here – otherwise I would not be able to find the equipment when I resume horsey home schooling. Otherwise, Pete might run into said items when he plows this area. Otherwise, my stuffed animals and Halloween decorations (which were used in constructing the scary corner) would become sodden and useless.
I came inside and did household chores – washed dishes, got a fire going, put away clean clothes, etc. Otherwise, Pete would have to do these things and this would not have been fair to him.
So yeah, being an adult means doing things that must be done because (as we all know) putting off what needs to be done can be more time consuming than dealing with it directly.
