Right, RC?! Hahaha
I'm hoping not, about the cribbing - Lacey's not a cribber, Hazel doesn't eat things besides ALL THE FOODz [she will literally eat first, think later. Hold anything out to her, she'll try to eat it without determining if it's even food! Hahaha], and Atticus is the only one that might try to chew on it a bit. Of course, Atticus, as we know, can cause a great deal of damage...but fingers crossed he won't!
I got 2 pallets up today. I had hoped to get it all done today...well, technically I had hoped to get it all done by Thursday...but I haven't been feeling super well all week and all of it was a little more than I could handle. So I moved everything down one day, got all the other things I would need the next, basically doing it in a step-by-step fashion instead of doing it all at once.
Today it got hot fast and I wasn't dressed right for the weather, basically ended up being better to stop while I wasn't dead. I'm hoping to get 2 more up tomorrow morning while it's still cool, then the goat section should be done and it'll be on to Lacey's section. Lacey's section will be easier because it's just a straight line [I'm redoing the goat's entire 'outside' area because they really don't use the outside area at all, so there's a lot of "if I do this, what will happen here, here, and here?"].
Ok, you guys, Gentleman Friend story time again. So feel free to skip if you don't want to hear about my Whitney Houston meets Amy Grant meets...some other lady singer...'love' life. I will not blame you in the least. There aren't any pictures for today either - sad, I know! So get out while you still can!! Fleeeeeee, my preciouses!
Ok, now that everyone who doesn't want to hear is gone, basically the 3 really 'exciting' highlights from this week are:
1. He texted me TWICE this week to tell me about stuff that happened. TWICE.
2. We've texted/talked everyday this week.
3. On...Tuesday, I think, I went a little nuts [ok, he would say "not nuts, it was perfectly reasonable"...but that's because he's the nicest person ever] and was all "OMG, why haven't you liked my Facebook statuses this week at all?" [I know, I know.]
And after he gave me a perfectly reasonable explanation [which, seriously, I had no right to. I mean, "liking" stuff on Facebook isn't an explanation necessitating activity!] I felt reasonably embarrassed and apologized. And he told me that I really didn't need to apologize because "if it was bothering you, you deserve to be heard out!" OH. MY. GOSH. Who is this kid. WHO SAYS THAT JUNK.
That's not even a line, like he seriously is that kind of person and he seriously lives his life in that way.
Of course, that basically made me cry for the next few days, every time I thought about it, because, really, when do you kind of 'go crazy' and then have the person you went crazy at, just turn to you and say "that's ok, I'm glad you told me. I accept you anyway." COME ON.
And then, the next morning after that^, he texted me to tell me a story. A story that was kind of reaching in its "this is so good, it's text-worthy!"-ness. Not going to argue with an unexpected text of any kind, but it really felt like it was more to say "don't worry, we're ok" than anything else.
And I needed exactly that since I was still feeling like a tool. Heck, I STILL feel like a tool...but without that I would have felt like a triple level tool vs a single level tool.
Really, whatever 'this' is, I could be the luckiest person in the world to have a friend like this. It's hard for me to accept myself sometimes...ok, a lot of the time, so for someone to just not even mind me being 'nearly my worst'...still having a hard time getting over it! Haha
I'm mildly nervous to see him tomorrow but I'm sure it'll be ok. I work so hard to make myself really invulnerable most of the time, defense mechanism...a little vulnerability is good, no matter how darn foolish I feel.
This is certainly not the first time I've been 'ridiculous' and we're much better comrades/companions/friends/whatever now than we were those other times...so it has to be ok. Maybe a little awkward at first but you know.
Annnnnnnyhoo, I hope your weekends are all going superbly! Thanks for reading!
ETA: is it weird that when I see that there are "guests" reading this...kinda freaks me out? It's the NSA! They found us! Everybody run!
