In the meantime the weather has turned warm and the snow is melting like crazy.
|remember my post from a few days ago where the snow was practically to the 'H'?|

Last year about this time I was writing about how Carmen seemed to be more settled and mature. I would say that this year she's 'softer'. Not as on edge or sharp. When I pick out her stall it has always been pretty easy to move her over so I could get a spot but her reactions were always sharp and fast. Now the slightest touch on her haunch and she quietly steps over. A few times I go into the barn and she's still laying down rather then leaping to her feet. Of course she would say that it's because she's too weak from hunger.
|I love her soft expression in this photo- it's fairly typical these days.|
'JESUS CHRIST' I yelled and jumped sideways about 10 feet.
I spun and looked around to see an elderly couple standing in the trees about 25 feet off the trail.
'Oh my heart- you scared the crap out of me'
'I'm sorry. ' said the older man. He explained that they had found a geocache. I could see that he was trying hard to not laugh at me. His wife looked offended- probably at my initial yell. But heck, it wasn't like I planned to jump around the trail swearing.
I realize that that's what Carmen does when something startles her- she jumps sideways (and likely is swearing).
I want my opinion to be heard and I will be quite persistent. I'm okay if the decision goes differently then I think it should as long as I'm heard. I'm pretty sure that sounds familiar.
I often have far too many thoughts in my head.
Carmen often has a very busy brain.
I get frustrated if I don't understand the task or I think I'm failing.
I'm pretty sure Carmen is like that too.
Wait, could we both be perfectionists?
