Ok my introvertism ( not sure if that is really a word) is starting to kick in and I am feeling very anti - social, I don't mean to be but it is just better for me right now. As an introvert I crave time for myself and for every hour spent with people I need several hours to myself, just to recuperate, being with lots of people all the time tires me out to the max, doesn't mean I don't enjoy being with them, I actually do very much so, but it takes a lot out of me. I love my job at the DSC and I love my position as a volunteer there, I love telling people about the donkeys and about the DSC and it's work, but I also need my alone time there, where I can just be among the donkeys and just chill, talk to them, and just be. Having 200 plus people to talk to during the last few open days is a lot for me and totally out of my own little safety zone, but I do it, because it means a lot to me and I do enjoy it nevertheless it drains me. As much as I wanted today and attend a potluck get together with my stitching sisters, I just didn't have the energy 1. to go, 2. to think of something to bring, 3. to sit there and even just listen....I know I have missed a great evening among great friends, but I just didn't have it in me tonight. Just too many things to occupy my mind and too many things happening today to go over and reflect on the day. But that's just me and how I function or not function, whatever which way you want to look at it. Just ME I guess!
The day at the farm was just crazy again, busy busy busy and nonstop action all day long. Never really got to mingle with the donkeys today. The closest I came to donkeys was watching the big guys Indiana, Gordon, Solo and Jacques in the Garden Paddock trying to get out, poor Juno stayed clear of the boys all day. Didn't even get to spent some time with her today. The only donkey I really spent some time with was bad girl Juliet, as she was standing all by her lonesome by the fence by the parking lot, she definitely enjoyed getting her ears scratched and she was well behaved. Juliet is such a pretty donkey girl, very moody so, you never know how she is from one minute to the next, so far she has been always good with me, but I have seen what she can do, so I am always very leery of her, because I don't think I would know how to handle her if she turned on me like she has on others at times. Can be pretty scary!
