I have had a little day, compared to everyone else. Busy day w/my best partner; I do like Saturdays, because I'm not solo at all & work well w/Eddie. TG, 'tho, it's my F.
Last hour of my shift I wanted to experiment w/the camcorder on my tablet, just do a vid of going around the "circle", to post here on the tablet. We got busy again, & I was having operator-error issues (which I figured out), so, no vid on the tablet. Will try again (was regretting getting the tablet/wifi, as I did that just before landlady dropped the "piano" (big heavy object, in other words) on me, but...only $20 bucks more a month. I still can re-do the decision, sell the tablet (some co-worker would buy it), but hanging onto it for now. Told Eddie the 2 boxes of tv stuff is just sitting in the living room, since don't know whether to attach or not, in view of circumstances. So, have no tv input, but not suffering w/the loss, really. I can always retrack, take it all back to ComCast, sell the tablet. Another wait & see thing, involved w/ the Big "wait & see". That stuff is just stuff, that I wanted, when I thought I was "home", not a big deal as far as really big deals are concerned. But...thought I'd play w/the tablet anyway, as got it to play with...for now anyway, will see.
CCGirl, am looking forward so much to meeting Janice's new Arab mare, her name is Mimi. Eddie told me I can do the camcorder w/out the wifi. Wanted to take it Monday & maybe get a short vid of Mimi. No lesson scheduled, just mucking. Will take the tablet along & see what happens.
Have listened very carefully w/Nicker's story of riding Jay w/other emotions happening, & the responses to that. I try my best to leave my "baggage" in the car when I get to Janice's, but horses,being horses, will intune, no matter what. That's why, last lesson, when I went to get Bailey, I told her exactly what what going on, & that I'd do my best to focus on her, & the lesson. Now, I know the words don't compute w/horses, but honest expression & intention sure do...I don't know how they intune that, but they do. Bailey was willing, patient, quiet, accepting of me during that lesson. And I was willing to accept her need for a bit of speed (for me, that fast trot where we worked on posting, & she was good w/that), after recognizing her boredom w/what was being done previously. We cooperated, w/her knowing my limitations & me recognizing her need to "change up". A bit of a partner ship, I think, was established. (I always remember that she is half TB, she does like to "go").
I guess I ran away w/the above thinking, I think I'm just gearing up for the Next Round, & recalling what I learned last time.
As for the "other" a bit more time will tell. I've been reluctant about cleaning up to move out, maybe denial that I will have to. I just can't go to a roach/bedbug/gangbanger place, can't happen. Working on my faith.
Very relieved it's my weekend (haven't even mentioned the workplace stress, ongoing & culminating: not he job itself, but the fact that the "Chief" is no Chief...he needs to go. For those of you familiar w/"Band of Brothers", he's our "Lt Dike". Eddie said today it won't change 'till things hit rock-bottom, which can't happen because the crew is keeping things together, w/Sgt Ricker at the helm. Something 'tho, will happen. Reaching critical mass. Eddie said he wished we could all go to the Director & say "it's him or us"...now, that reminded me of "Band of Brothers" too. Time will tell. Not a good situation, we need a leader as Chief, not this mngr/buerocrat (sp), so we can handle the real stresses of this job. 'Nuff said, for now).
Hope all have a very good weekend; Ladona! Happy vacation, Nicker, happy preparation for yours!
