Well, I'd planned to do a whole post about hobby goals for 2009, but it's just not happening. The kids and I went to see Marley and Me today. My poor old Abbie dog has had a rough week and the sad ending hit a bit too close to home. We were all in tears when we left the theater and this evening has been a series of serious conversations about death and dogs. I am emotionally exhausted and since the kids are planning to stay up until midnight, I'm preparing to be physically worn out as well!So I've decided to limit myself to discussing my number one hobby goal for the year, and that is to step outside of my comfort zone. I do not want to make 34 English saddles in 2009. I want to make at least one Western saddle and a sidesaddle of some sort and a Mexican saddle and a Portuguese saddle and... Well, you get the picture!
