It's a great day!

The sun is shining and my world seems to be pretty complete and complacent right now. I know, it's been a really long time since I've been able to say that. I absolutaly love my new apartment although I no longer have a bed because they came and got the other one and mine is being delivered tomorrow.

I got out of work early yesterday. Went home and ate a quick lunch, picked up the dogs and took my car for an oil change. Saw "G" while I was there and he was all smiles and giving me those sneaky little looks, it actually gave me goose bumps. I deposited my stimulus check and then drove to my parents to get my cat Shadow. I visitied with them for a little bit and then drove back to the apartment to get him settled in. My roomate was heading out to work so I curled up in a chair in my bedroom with the AC on and the cat on my lap and finished the movie that "G" and I had started the night before. "G" then texted me and asked if I wanted to come over to his house since I didn't have a bed and chill. I said sure and took a quick shower cause I was sticky from the humidity and packed a few things and the dogs and I left.

When I got there we looked over our mail and then hopped in the car to rent a movie and get some nachos (my favorite!) We stayed up and watched a light move, Fools Gold. We laughed and joked and it was really really nice. By the time it was over it was 11:30 and we both were exhausted. We plopped in bed and held each other until we fell asleep. It just felt so right. No stress. No fighting or bickering, just hanging out and enjoying each others company and NO ALCOHOL.

He got up first this morning and let the dogs out and did his thing. I got up after and made the bed and got ready to leave to go home and shower and dress. We gave each other a hug and kiss and he wished me a good day and thanked me for coming over. He held my face in the way that just melts me and gave me a heart felt kiss.

Later this late morning he texted me and said that it was too bad that we were both working cause it would be a nice day to go for a motorcycle ride on his Harley, I agreed. The sun is shining it's warm and I'm feeling on top of the world right now. I truly believe that "G" is is trying to make some changes in his life and I only want to give him the room and space he needs to do that, but I think that maybe hanging out with me is something that he needs and wants right now. I'm trying to keep my cool and erase all of the shit in our past. I did tell him last night that I lije the goos "G" better than the ass. He said that he really isn't an ass and needs to focus on being happy and productive. I told him that was a great start. So I'm working the rest of the day but I really don't mind cause I'm in such a good mood. Just can't wait to leave and hopefully going to the barn to hang out with Possum if it's not raining. The weather here has just been crazy. It has had some kind of precipitation for like the past 14 days, like periods of rain or whole days with rain. The farmer around here are just waiting to do their first cutting of hay but need a guaranteed dry day!

Have a great day everyone. As always I have a lot to do at work, but it makes me smile just thinking of the few good days "G" and I have had with each other. It really is like a breath of fresh air. He also invited me to his family's 4th of July party. I'm not totally sure, I told him that I would like to go but need to make sure it's te right thing for me and think about it a while. I just love his family and that seem to like me. I just need to make sure this is an appropriate step for us in the right direction.

Ya know this is totally off the subject - but I wanted to tell you how cool its that you bought your horse - most likely saved his life and have turned him into such a sweet hunter/jumper pony. What is also neat about that is that he is an appy - a breed not known for their mark in the jumping world. So rock on!

Glad things are looking up you - sorry you guys are getting hit with our usual early summer weather - we are actually getting a ton of heat and sun right now which is not normal until late July.

My trainer once asked a visiting judge after he'd made the comment that he'd visited the Pacific NW before - if he was up visiting during Spring or if he missed that day. :)

Thanks Stephanie,

Possum is really a great guy. He's not for everyone that's for sure but the combination of the both of us really seems to work. He likes to have fun and I like to have fun. I truly believe that my horse would do ANYTHING is I asked him to. I love that feeling of closeness and trust. There are no amount of blue ribbons that can top that.

As for the jumping, he loves it. He loves it almost too much and tries to gallop head long and then literally sets his sight for the next one. He can get wuite intense about it. He loves some of the lower level jumpers, just get over it is a short amount of time, but I like him to learn the classical jumpins as well. The rhythm, pace, spots, spreads and lines. But thanks for your comments. He would have certainly ended up in Canada at a salughter house if I had not snatched him up. It's been a long and bumpy road but we really love each other and he is happy!

Glad to hear that things are looking up for you. I hope everything continues to get even better.

Possum looks alot like Rusty - it's kind of funny how I'm noticing Appys everywhere now that I own one too. I don't think Rusty is much of a jumper - he's a little old and alot laid back.

I really admire people that jump and know what they are doing. I'm such a chicken shit - I don't think I could handle it. I wish I had learned when I was young!

We are having the same weather as you guys from the sound of it. Rain, rain and more rain. Not much hay has been cut. It's not much of a suprise though, since I'm only about an 8-10 hour drive from Maine...
