A little stressed...

Oh my gosh, how did I dig myself into this hole of work?!! And I really haven't been procrastinating! I'm applying to study abroad in Australia in the fall and I have soooo much paperwork to do. Two of my classes have weekly assignments due on Wednesdays. My other classes have tests/assignments on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and one is an English class, which is my weakest subject. Plus there is a stomach bug going around (among your usual colds and sicknesses) that put my great uncle in ICU yesterday. And my pony was lame last weekend when I went home and the only one who seems concerned about it is me, and since I have to go away to school during the week, I can't take care of him. I hope it's just an abcess or bruise and not something more serious (my horse is a wimp so something really little bothers him a lot). But he's my baby and I've put a lot of work into him to get him to where he is now, and I don't want it to be ruined. I'm probably overreacting, but I had a lot of trouble keeping him in one piece last summer (bruised foot, abcess, deep puncture, started to go septic, sore back, and he stopped sweating) and don't want a repeat of last summer. The good thing was that I had time to ride my brother's horse (he used to ride but stopped; now she's mostly a pasture pet) and had two really good rides on her. She's a mare and can be really tempermental, and she and I don't get along well (she broke my arm 4 yrs ago), so good rides on her are usually few when I'm on her (she really loves my brother).
There's a chance of snow tomorrow, so hopefully morning classes will be cancelled. I want it to be better in the evening because Micheal Green is speaking at Campus Crusade. He's an amazing speaker and has a great sense of humor.
I guess I'm out; early classes come really early if they aren't going to be cancelled...
