So ex and I got together tonight.  it was good.  fine. However, I love this comment - have gotten it lots. “When you find someone you REALLY love, u’ll give up the barn.” Um.  no. I don’t feel like compromising on that.  I love what I am doing. It’s like I told someone the other day. Question:  “Do you have a boyfriend?” My answer:  “Yes.  He’s a 6 year old Dutch Warmblood that has a broken foot right now.  Thanks for asking.”

242 - kentucky derby

what started out as excitement over rooting for Colonel John and Eight Belles (always rooting for the fillies) ended with sadness over losing the filly. so frickin’ sad. ____________________________________________ What I always find interesting is the take on horse injuries to the general public… as to what horse people know.  When Barbaro shattered his leg, horse people all knew… it was the end.  The public rallied…. and hoped… When this filly went down and the

Also I thought it was interesting the timing of the ex coming around.  Of course I am still hanging in there with J and B, but honestly sometimes a doubt creeps into my head of “what the hell are you doing?”.  The ex has an un-conventional profession as well.  So of course, he was all for me pursuing my dreams and telling everyone else to go jump off a bridge. So maybe the universe’s point is not one of us getting back together but to hang out, have fun AGAIN, and to have a

An ex un-expectedly came back into my life tonight. Random. I was heading home from the barn when I get a call from un-known number.  Check the message - its my ex.  I called him back, we chatted for a few.  He called me back a few minutes later and decided to head over.  We spent the evening together, catching up on old times and watching the NBA games. It was good.  Interesting. It was nice to be familiar with someone and comfortable.  He told me that he could smell me and that I still smelled

I am taking the morning off to putter around here, get some house stuff done, get some billing done, and to generally just take it easy.  I have a list of horses that I have to lunge and a list of horses I have to doctor.   Planning to go in at 10 and leave by 2.

Sat on a horse… my nose was dripping horribly…. couldn’t do anything about it, so snot was running down my face.  Just kept riding. how gross is that?

250 sat

Crystal & Cookie Archive on April 28, 2008, 12:23 am


worked horses all day. had a friend staying over, so went out downtown.  Theresa came out.  It was fun. I think the highlight of the evening was when my “friends” tried to set me with a weirdo by telling him I hadn’t had a date in 6 months. So the last 3 guys that have liked me. 1- Homeless guy who asked B for money at the Carolina Horse Park. 2 - Mentally challenged guy at horse show. 3- Guy wearing the same hat as Aladdin.

I planned to come home early in order to get things done around the house before my room-mate decided to either murder me or move out - either of which she would have been completely justifiable. However, didn’t get out until late again.

254 - this life part 2

Crystal & Cookie Archive on April 23, 2008, 2:35 am


I have been trying to write this post for a few days. I just wanted to comment more on the post that I wrote about a week ago - the one off of Nikki’s comment about trying to do this for a living. I don’t want to have any regrets. I am going for it. I am committing myself to it. I am working hard. I don’t want to be that person that talks about glory days and says “Well, I had the talent, but if I had the money, if I had the time, then I woulda, coulda, shoulda.” I
