Christy, I don't even knowwwwww. So funny:

I guess HoFo just lovessssss you??

In other news, it must be spring: Lacey's eyes are freaking THE HECK OUT.

I'm pretty sure it's my fault too which is a huge bummer on top of an already stressful week.
I didn't even stop to consider that the bright snow might irritate her eyes and that maybe I should flymask that baby up. Apparently I should have.

And her 29th birthday is on Saturday too=not my favorite that she's going to be in eyeball pain on her birthday. Not like it really probably matters to her, but it matters to ME.

On the plus side, I caught it just a few hours after her eyes started freaking out so I got her buted up asap. They were still spasming by last night but they had snapped out of it by this morning, THANK GOODNESS.
She's still buted out of her ever loving mind but the worst is over...hopefully.

Poor baby.

Anyway, I hope you guys are all doing SUPER GREAT.

Haha truuuue story.

Guys, I'm kindaaaa freaking out. Just a little bit.
Tonight when I took Lacey's flymask off to put her to bed, I noticed a little, itty-bitty, dimple-ish thing on her bad eye.
My first thought "ULCER!!!! NOOOOOOOOO"
I'm dearly hoping that this is just me being overly dramatic but.........

In terms of the ERU episode, her eye is looking better..but then there's this.

Anyway, I immediately called the vet and left a message asking for advice [don't want to go into the weekend wondering, then have it actually be an ulcer - ulcers can get out of hand SO fast].

So I'm kind of freaking out a lot. I'm already SO stressed about school...then this.
Actually, interesting theory I developed today: all the recent times Lacey's had an episode have all been when I was really over the top stressed already. I wonder if my stress level, even though I "hide" it well, is effecting her in this sort of way?? Like making her more prone somehow to eyeball-based freak outs? We are so in-tune to each other...I guess it's not surprising.

And, of course, if the vet does need to come out, I have $50 in my bank account currently. Luckily our vet is really cool about coming out even though she knows it'll take me a while to pay...but I just hate not being able to pay immediately. Makes me feel like such a slimy jerk. The vet is really chill about it and, I think, probably her thinking is that not many college kids are 'nursing' a "special" "really old" horse along while dong school...but still. I hate feeling like I'm making excuses for myself/others are making excuses for me.
Lacey really has the best vet, we are SO immensely blessed.
That's one of my life goals though: paying everything in my life immediately. Having the $$ available to pay for almost any eventuality. Or at least being able to pay for most any eventuality.

Anyway, hopefully whatever that is is gone by tomorrow and I can call the vet back and be all "JUST KIDDING, guys. We got this."

And on a more optimistic note, here's a video of Mr. Atti with the "zoomies".
[it was multiple videos and I joined them together with an app and it made it all weird....oh well]

1. Lacey's eyes are doing SO much better!!! I'm so happy!!!
She was actually able to have a relatively pain-free 29th birthday yesterday too which was fabulous!!
No ulcer, the next day that eye looked completely normal. Not sure what was up with it that particular evening but I'm glad it wasn't anything serious!!

2. Atti is hilarious. He's all "get me out of this retirement home! These old ladies don't understand how stinking AWESOME I am!!!!"

3. I'm kind of freaking out a little about this whole thing with "New Guy"...and clearly overthinking so I'm going to write it all here and clear my head [and, of course, your opinions are always welcome].
We didn't have church last week due to the snow+ice [Portland actually put out a city-wide advisory requesting that everyone stay indoors if at all possible]. So the last time we conversed was two weeks ago, on SuperBowl Sunday, when we sat together and all that.

This week: he showed up 20 minutes earlier than he ever does, immediately came over to me and started chatting. We talked for 10 minutes or so, then we had to go to a little short 3 minute meeting. THEN, we had 15, or so, minutes before our "real" meeting...and he/we spent the whole time talking.
Actually though, talking to him is more like answering questions, receiving "oh" or "awesome", etc,-type answers, then answering more questions. It's kinda frustrating but I'm hoping that maybe that'll tone down once we're friends-friends.

THEN we had our meeting-meeting, and it was time to go host. It took a bit for people to show up in our sections...anyone want to guess WHO walked over to my section to talk while we waited? ....yeah.

Then people showed up and we actually had to "work." haha

THEN, once the teaching was about to start, I went to sit down...guess who just naturally came with me? He must have realized that he really hadn't asked if he could sit with me because, as he was about to sit down, he asked if he could sit there.

And we sat together again. This time he was wayyyyy more comfortable than last time. However, as our luck would have it, the teaching was on "Godly Sexual Identity". Talk about THE MOST awkward sermon to sit through, sitting in a packed pew next to a guy you kinda like but don't really know. It was hilariously horribly awkward. MY LIFE.

All evening he was asking me all about the classes I'm taking, what I'm doing this week, Lacey [someone was looking at my Facebook?? Haha], etc.

I'm so confused. I'm just so thrown for a loop by all this attention!
The worst part, I think, is that I truly do not want to lead him on in any way...but I have no idea what MY feelings are, really. I'm enjoying the attention, but do I like him...or the idea that I could be "winning" someone's affection?

Then, on top of that, weird stuff: a random girl sent me a friend request on Facebook.
We had two friends in common - New Guy and another lady from church. This girl looked familiar-ish and I figured that maybe I knew her from church since we had mutual church friends. So I gave her the benefit of the doubt, and accepted her request.
2 hours later, she had deleted ME as her friend., what?
This whole thing. I don't even.

Gah. This is all so out of character and new for me. Before Gman came into my life, I had had more guy friends than girl friends...but the girl friends were the close friends and no guys were ever interested in being "real" friends.
Then Gman came along and we became instant "real-real" friends. Realer than a lot of my girl friends and I. No questions asked, insta-mutual-soul connection.
Still no interest from guys other than Gman, but I was ok with that because Gman seemed like a real option [ha].
THEN, the poo hit the fan with Gman, discovered that he was never going to be an option, stayed super close friends but in a different way, and within 2 weeks, BOOM, there's New Guy.

I'm reallllly not that girl who all the guys like. I'm like one of those girls who gets described as "has a great personality" or "is THE FUNNIEST"...and if someone is going to describe my physical attributes, "cute" is always the term. I'm certainly ok with being the "funny girl." Making peope laugh is one of my most favorite things in life. It's just this is so...different from everything I've ever known.
I mean, I like this, I guess...but I just don't know what to do with it. And I wish I knew how I felt, for real.

I guess on the plus side, the insecure nerdy part of me can be relatively sure that New Guy isn't just messing with me because [no offense to him] he's not THAT good looking. He's not ugly at alllll, but not like intimidatingly good looking.

Anyway, that's my big novel of the day. But I do feel a whole lot better after getting that all out!! Thanks for listening.

I knew what you meant! <3
Meeee too.

On the plus side for New Guy, it turns out that one of our mutual friends has known him his whole life and says "he's one of the best guys around." [yes, yes. I went snooping. Haha no shame]
A lot of my hesitation stems from the fact that I know nothing about him and he, so far, has not been real forthcoming with information about himself=don't want to become attached to a jerk!!
Anyway I'm glad to hear that he's a good person. Makes me feels better.

In other news, I'm not sure if I told you about how the back wall of the shed -in Lacey's stall- has been wanting to falling down/off. In any case, last night it finally fell off.
And this afternoon I "fixed" it by putting a tarp up. I tied up the top two corners, then staple-gunned the sides, bottom, and top to the shed. Hopefully it'll hold up.

1. Hilariously, I did all this while Lacey was eating her dinner. She could have cared less about a tarp swinging around. She's the best. :)

2. Atti's reaction was amusing:

Also, someoneeeee made their escape this afternoon. The grass IS greener on the other side.
Luckily he wasn't making any trouble, just happily grazing.

Ok, so to be honest I didn't exactly read the past few posts because my eyeballs hurt. 8+ hours on the computer at work and then I come home and get on the computer some more. Great idea! Hahaha not. I will get around to reading them though, maybe tomorrow.

BUT, I did however watch all videos. Atti is fracking hillarious. And poor Lacey in the vid where she wanted to roll. Dawwww.

P.S. HAPPY *BELATED* BIRTHDAY LACEY! Do I remember last year you gave her heart shaped carrots in her feed on her birthday? Or was that Valentine's day? Was that even you? Also, I did read a blurb about her eyes...and then another blurb that they are better. YAY :)

And I was pretty much cracking up about Roperchick double liking Tiny's post. How does that even happen? And when you called it HoFo ...omg, dying. (ok maybe I read a little bit more than I thought) We have a gas station in MD/DE called Royal Farms and we call it RoFo. Not sure why its not RoFa but its not...its RoFo. So when you said HoFo I lost it.

ANYWHOOOOOOO ...I'm house/horse sitting for the week and am alone and bored...can you tell???????????!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL.
