Thanks you guys!
Hahaha, Endiku!! I think evvvveryone sees that...except me.
It's so funny, people always seems to comment on that tree [it's some kind of weird fir tree/stick/thing] and I've never thought it was that unusual! But maybe it's becuase I see it everyday...I'm desensitized or something. Haha!!
Maggie, I WISH I could go on a vay-cay-cay! However there's absolutely no one who could take care of the kiddos for me... :/ I haven't been on 'vacation'/spent the night+day away from 'them' in....3+ years? Haha
Step one: save up for a little truck+horse trailer. Step two: buy. Step three: vacation with the kiddos!
I see your point!! And that^ is a good idea anyway. Vacation would be a great side bonus!
Today=better. Church last night was so exactly what I needed.
It's so funny to me, I kind of go out of my way to be a bit of a loner...as in, I do a lot of thinking on my own and don't really seek other people out. Just being honest, I like a select number of people and beyond that I mostly keep to myself.
Anyway, so I kind of do that at church. I have Gentleman Friend and a close "older sister"-type friend that I see every week and that I'll actively seek out to see.
I don't know how this happens to me, maybe it's because I have that kind of face...or something, but I'm always making new friends wherever I go. Anyway, so I was sitting there, waiting for my "older sister" to get there, before church, and this girl I've met+talked to a few times came bopping up to me out of no where, super excited to see me. So we talked for a while, then she asked if she could sit with me for the teaching. Of course I say yes.
Then my "older sister" shows up, I introduce my new friend, etc etc. THEN, some girls I met a few weeks ago and they "want me in their group because I'm funnier than them and they like to laugh" [WHY would you tell me that??...I like them but that sort of makes me feel like their 'pet' or something...] came and sat in front of "my" ladies and I.
Then, in the midst of the teaching, the teacher says something about urban farming and getting goats in his neighbor's backyard. And instantly, allll these gals are turning towards me, quietly being like "Goat Lady!! YEAH!"
I don't even know how I try so darn hard to fly under the radar and fail SO BADLY alllll the time.
Kind of the best.
But then again, story of my life.
So I got a good laugh out of that and was reminded about how every one wishes, at one time or another, to be "freer" than they feel they are, and that one person's conclusion of freedom can be SO different than anyone else's. AND that on a scale of 1-10, I'm pretty darn free!! I have a job I love and look forward to do, I have a wonderful horse, I have two goats, I have a CAT!! Really, if you asked middle-school-me what my life dream was, it would probably be 85% my life this second.
Of course I would also have to be dating Orlando Bloom, to really flesh out middle-school-me's life dream...but yeah.
Glad this isn't middle-school-me's life dream!!
Also, I got a real leather jacket today for $12 at Salvation Army. I'm kind of really really excited about it. AND for just $12!!! So SO good.
I'm going to go all hardcore on you guys....NOT. Hahaha
From last night - crossing over the Willamette [Will-A
