And Then Plan B Kicked In

Isn't it funny how things change.  Two hours ago I was on the phone talking horses.  Making plans to go view some young horses.  And then an email hit my Blackberry changing those plans.  I had sent out queries to a variety of universities regarding graduate programs.  Yesterday I received some information back from the University of Portland.  (My first choice.)

Today I received an email from the program coordinator.  I quickly hopped on the phone and a short conversation later I was on a completely different path.  As of thirty minutes ago, I became enroute to starting official graduate classes for a Master of Education in Educational Leadership.  I start classes in January, which means I'm now scrambling to gather paperwork and money.  Mostly because I wasn't expecting things to move quite this quickly.  (Someone canceled their spot!)  My first class is January 19th!

This means I really don't have the money for another horse - even if it is bargain basement.  The young horse project will need to wait.  Big sigh.
