What a difference an hour makes!

At 4:55pm tonight I was greeted by my favorite sound in the entire world. Grace gave me her “your home” nicker for the first time since I started the new job. Today was the first day of my new work schedule. I emailed my manager yesterday and asked if he had any objections to me working from 7:00am – 4:00pm. He fully supported the idea. I initially put the bug in his ear my second day on the job. I am most definitely a “morning person” I’ve been getting up at 5:00am to be at work at 8:00. I don’t think I have it in me to sleep until 6:00am on a weekday. I love the new job! It has that fast paced, intense environment that I thrive in. I have some of the greatest co-workers and my customers are all “special” in each of their own way. I am finally getting paid to talk to people – for 8 hours a day!

For the last month Grace and I have been working 2-3 nights a week in the dark. It was a good experience, but I am glad it’s over for this year. I really enjoy being able to see more than 5 feet in front of me. This Sunday I have a lesson with Peggy Cummings. I am more excited about this lesson than any horse show or cow event I have ever been to. I feel like I am at a point in my journey with Grace where I will be able to actually absorb what I will be exposed to this weekend. I have seen a huge improvement in Grace’s body since incorporating the Connected Groundwork into the work I was already doing with Sarah. Sarah has been working closely with Peggy; she set up the lessons with her this weekend. I am incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to have the two of the in the same place at the same time. I’ll be sure to fill you in will all the details.


  1. Peggy Cummings is very good - enjoy!

    So glad the new job is great!

    Sweet Grace!

  2. Im so excited for you too! Im going to try and stop by on Sunday for auditing, but not sure if I can yet. Im still waiting on Peggys new book in the main, it should release tomorrow! I cant wait to devour it and try these groundwork exercises.

    Im glad you got your schedule switched. I originally was 7-4 as well, but got pushed back to 7:30-4:30. It might only be a half hour, but I dont like it at all!

  3. Sounds exciting, can't wait to read about it!
