Camp totally sucked today...I don't do crafts. I almost quit about 4 times today. First, she had the Michelle that rides Jack and me take the kids up to do the craft. We figured it out, but it was messy. Then we brought the second group up, which included the kid whose mom created the project, so she's made these books before. Here was our conversation...
kid: You're not doing it right!
me: Then do you want to show us the right way?
kid: NO! It's ur job to teach us this!
I almost ended up strangling her. I can't do crafts for shit. Never have. Never will. Then Pam said, right in front of me, "That project was so easy, even a moron like my son could figure that out." That almost resulted in me storming out and leaving somewhere with my horse. But I walked away and tried to forget it. Then I needed to find a place for Cowboy, because he didn't have shavings in his stall yet. I knew I'd get yelled at if I left him with the kid that rode him to get shavings. So I asked Michelle for some advice for what to do with him for the moment, and she said to put him in a stall that hadn't been cleaned yet. So I put him on Claires, and Pam was mad b/c I couldn't watch a kid, hold a horse, and get a bag of shavings all at the same time. Thank what ever is out there that I didn't do something extremely irrational today. Mandi didn't do the craft thing, which was what she was supposed to.
Today sucked major ass, and what was weird was I actually talked to Ashley a little, though we both hate eachother.
OH YEAH! I remembered another thing that was bad about today. When the second group was doing crafts, Nicole and Amy walked in. Amy sat there and was talking about how she always went out and partied and got high, in front of 8-12 year olds. Of course, when people talk about their drug habits, they tend to swear...A LOT. And believe me, the little kids noticed. Ashley was obnoxious, because she refused to be labeled as a 'camper' or do any 'camper' activities. And when it was her groups time to ride...she said, "I don't want to ride! Riding is so gay!". I came pretty close to hurting her.
People are so frustrating...I hate them. Gah. Make them leave my pony alone!
I swear that I'm done rambling [for today] about horse camp and the downsides of living at the barn.
PS: Nikki wants me to ride her Satinka! This will be interesting...
