staring intently at Emily until Emily finally breaks down and pets her.
Diane and I met to work on the Horsemeister books for 2013. That is probably my least favorite job of this business, why Diane expects me to know the first AND last names of everyone that bought a foal.
Emily borrowed Diane's sprayer to water the arena then raked it with Mike's 4 wheeler before working with Sheena. She reported Sheena did well.
After supper Emily and Sarah went back over to Rachel's to play games. Finally it was time to sit down with a book. I finished up the book mom lent me. I hated this book for the first 60 or so pages but made myself keep reading. That book kept pointing out all of my faults when I was sure I didn't have any. Actually the book is good, it is written by a Christian psychologist. Funny I really thought of myself as more of a compliant person. There was a test to take so once I took it I had Mark write down what his answers would be for me and we ended up with just about the same results. It helped to know that being strong willed isn't always bad, we just need to be reined in a bit, kind of like a fire. The fire in the wood stove warms us up nicely but if it was burning out of control and out of the box think of the damage that happens.
