Wednesday Journal

I'm a little on the grumpy side today (ok very) so I'm going to keep this short. I didn't ride today, between the tests, the weather, and the show tomorrow, it was just too much trouble to try to get me on a horse. That's not the reason I'm grumpy though, but riding probably would have offset some of the foulness of my mood.
I think mostly to blame is the weather today, its been cold for a few days now, and rainy, and it just makes it suck to go outside; but I have to, to help with stalls and do anything really. So there is Grumpy reason #1.
Then there's the fact that all the girls that were testing left today. So I'm a bit lonely without the noise in the dorm kitchen and without Lena and Corinna to talk to about the horses and the program and gossip about other random events.
Then finally there's Vodafone, which has made it nearly impossible for an English speaking person to top up a prepaid phone in Germany. I spent two hours calling customer service and getting hung up on when I was transferred to the English speaking customer service that I finally went back to the store I bought the phone from and topped up there. Apparently no one can figure out how your supposed to do that online or over the phone without giving them some kind of bank account number (not a chance in hell I'm doing that).
So there you have it, not very interesting today. I'll probably write more about the testing in the "testing for your badge" page a bit later when I'm not in such a bad mood.
Hope your day is going better than mine!!
