    I specifically took that photo for you, RC!! I know you have a little crush on him.
    He's a big spoiled baby though. Everybody thinks he's the cutest in the world [which, goshdarnit, he IS SO CUTE] and he therefore gets away with nearly murder. Heck, he tried to murder me last week! Haha
    He's really good for the kids though, super slow and very chill about everrrrything.


    I'm kind of having an "ehhhh" day today. Probably mostly my fault - there's no "real" food in my house and, instead of cooking anything, I've been eating chips allll day. And you know how that makes a person feel GREAT, right? Haha
    And then there's the whole Gentleman Friend thing. He + lady BFF left yesterday to go see their gentleman BFF in Virginia [feel lucky Virginians!!] and, since that point, my Facebook feed has been blowing up with pictures of the three of them [they're all awesome so FB think I want to see evvverything they post..which is usually true...but...] and all this fun, interesting stuff they're doing. And I'm super excited for them that they get to see each other but there's a limit. And it's been passed.
    So now I'm into the "Poor baby me, why don't I get to do fun stuff ever?"-lame-o stage.
    Which is ridiculous because I love my life and today has been wonderful and beautiful and I get to see lovely people at church tonight and bottomline, I have absolutely every reason to be thankful.

    So maybe I should go eat some real food and stay off Facebook. That sounds pretty reasonable.

    In any case, I gave Lacey a bath yesterday which she LOVED. I decided to really wash her thoroughly this time, usually I sorta skimp and don't really wash her legs...you know the deal. She's already SO furry for winter right now! She's about a week early, furriness-wise. Interesting!
    Also, I realized this morning that a year ago today, I met the goats. Touched my first goat ever, today a year ago!! I brought them home on September 7th, exactly a week after meeting them.
    How weird is that? It's only been a year but it feels like forever and no time at all...all at the same time.

    And Atticus is like twice the size he was.

    First, here's another picture of that sunset from the other night. Still not over it!! Haha



    Lacey and Hazel wanted their picture taken together...



    But Atticus wanted in too. Both ladies said "RUDE."



    And when I got home, Booth had fully DESTROYED his favorite toy. That one was the second one of those I had bought him too! He just loves them and he doesn't do a whole lot of playing on his own...except when he has one of those toys. Since I want to encourage him to play on his own, I bought him a new one after he partially destroyed the old one...think that that destroying episode was a fluke.

    Yeah, it wasn't a fluke. Hah!



    Cats. "This toy! It just...exploded when I got near it!! I don't know what happened."


    And that's all for right now. :)

    This was totally two pages ago and stuff but can I just say that every time I see that weird tree/bush/shrub tall thing by the house I have to look at it a few times because I'm automatically like 'DINOSAURRRRR....No wait. GIRAFFE. Wallaby has a Giraffe? NOWAY' Then I realize its a bunch of leaves. Oh the disappointment...


    Lacy is the cutest though, so that makes up for it.

    I know the feeling!! Just breathe and truly look at everything you have, whether it be amazing experiences, your lovable furr family, your awesome friends.

    No one I know aside from you can wake up and go on an awesome trail ride with her equally awesome horse. Heck you could probably go in your jammies!

    I've figured out a long time ago.. animal lovers sacrifice other regular teenage stuff in order to be happy. But you could always save up some money and treat yourself to a mini vacation/roadtrip sometime!

    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!"

    OH. DEAR.
    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-Am-it...for all you out of town-ers :P] out of downtown Portland:



    This morning Hazel was SO asleep that she actually baah-ed in her sleep! It was THE CUTEST EVER. [lookit those LIPS! So droopy. Hahaha]



    And Booth. He likes being included.






    I hope you guys are doing great!!

    I like your step four!! :)
    And yay Goat Lady! Haha

    Today. What happened today? I guess technically not a lot. I woke up at midnight to a thunderstorm and Booth scrabbling his way under the covers of my bed. And he kept shifting around. It was super cute but I kindaaaa wanted to sleep. Then I finally got back to sleep, only to wake up at 5am to him kitten-mewing at my bedroom door and using his paws to slam the door against the doorjamb. >.< Somebody thought it was play time+breakfast time because they survived the storm! They needed congratulation. HAH. BAD cat.

    So I made him wait through an episode of Law&Order, then we got up.
    Bonus to getting up ridiculously early: I was SO early to go to work. Lookin' like a great employee over here! I have to be 30ish minutes early anyway but this morning I was like an hour+fifteen minutes early.

    AND I got to spend a lot of time with Lacey+the G's this morning. They approved most heartily.
    Queen Lace.
    [and the clouds even look kind of like lace! Hardyharhar!]



    She's so funny. She stood on the other side of her stall fence and waited until I walked over to her before she headed down into her stall. There's a little slope down to her stall that I think she finds a little intimidating sometimes. She likes to walk down it together. :)



    Then I got to work. I had all these grand plans for working with Fabs, I was going to lunge him and ride him like I did the other day.
    Too bad he apparently had some kind of conjunctivitis flare-up over the weekend and my boss took him over to her house and hadn't brought him back yet..... Poor Fabs!! I guess he saw the vet, got medicine, and is doing a whole lot better, thank goodness.
    So I'm hopingggg she's planning to bring him back tomorrow. Fingers crosssed.

    So that hour+15 I was early to work? Um, yeah. Spent it not doing a lot. Of course, being driven to "DO" things, I found little things to do during that time but it was nothing useful for the greater good of anyone. Just busy work-type stuff. :/
    So that was sorta lame.
    Plus side, I worked with Buddy a little bit! He's really "draggy" in-hand, like he doesn't automatically yield his hindquarters to you when you send him through a gate, that sort of thing. He'd prefer to go through the gate and keep going, dragging his handler behind him. So I worked on lightening him up. Doing a lot of sending-yielding exercises where I tell him to go somewhere, he goes there, then faces me...instead of going where I tell him to, then standing there facing away from me. Good one, Buddy. Goooooooood one.
    Maybe it's a draft horse thing...but me-no-likey! He was getting better towards the end, so maybe no one's ever really taught him that stuff. I wouldn't really be surprised.

    And then I got off work early, at 12:30, because we moved the 12:30-1 kid up and the 1-1:30 kid cancelled! It was kind of lovely.

    But I miss Fabs. Haha

    Mr. Tazzy. He hates everyone.
    But not really.



    Then BUDDDDDDY.
    "why aren't you feeding me any apples! I demand apples and assorted foodz??!"



    "OH HEY! AN APPPPPLE FELLLLLL!!! ME EATz it!!"



    OH! And my boss is going to call my barefoot trimmer and get the horses all set up for GOOD trims! I'm so excited!!
