Yes you're going to hear the truth from me. I tend to be the kind of person who'll tell you everything. This worries my mother, my sister and my husband. They'd like it if I'd maybe keep just a couple of things quiet. Well, Mom and Sweetie are safe. I'll guard their privacy like a German Shepherd. But Jethro, well that's another story. I mean, he knew I was a loose cannon already when I was sixteen years old.
And yet, he still asked me to marry him a few years later. He was pretty sure I'd say yes, too.
About a year ago I started this blog project. I am nowhere near finished with it. I have no idea where it will end up, just as I had no way of knowing how much it would mean to me. I really didn't expect to care so much about the people who read it! Heck, by the beginning of 2006 I was just pleased that anybody read it at all!
Truth: I had no ulterior motives to get my best friend addicted to blogging, or her oldest daughter. Honestly. I didn't plan it!
Another truth: I shouldn't be doing this. I should be doing my homework. My Equine Business Management course is into Unit 4 LEGAL ISSUES which is another name for FUN SUCKING. I should be watching the "Liability Walkabout Tour" video. I should be getting numbers for my Business Plan. (Lots of biznass, not enough horses...but very necessary...)
I should be watching my daughter brush and floss to make sure she gets her expensive metal clad teeth clean.
I should be coaxing my son to carry his dirty laundry downstairs and put it in the machine.
You know what I really should be doing? Writing my precious novel. I haven't touched it in weeks.
I'll get back to it. I'll get the Business Plan done too. And blog. But the truth is, I'm not going to get that end table cleared off beside the family room couch. I'd like to think I will. I keep writing that task on my WEEKLY TO DO LIST. But it could take another three weeks.
Truth is, I'd rather write. And play with horses.
You should go back and read the first thing I ever wrote here. It's all starting to make sense.
