Baby Goats & What'd I'd change about me.

My fiance knows how much I LOVE animals, especially baby animals, so he took me over to his friends house to show me some baby goats. Now, the funny part of this story is, his friends goats wanted nothing to do with us. Thankfully, the house is surrounded by land, and many neighbors have goats that happened to have babies (LOTS of them) as well. And guess what? Yup, they WANTED us to pay them attention. They were SO affectionate. I don't know how they got the babies that tame, but am guessing they have kids that spend lots of time cuddling them. They were craving our attention SO bad that they would literally squeeze through the fence and come over to hang out with us. We played with them each for a bit before putting them safely back over the fence, only to see them run back after us again. Haha. It was so much fun :) I think the funniest part was when a BIG goat BIT me. I actually have a bruise from it (that showed up IMMEDIATELY). It was when the babies first ran over to us, I was petting them and SO excited so as I was squatting down with my arm through the fence, I looked back to my fiance and said excitedly "Hey baby, LOOK! The babies are all coming over, they want to be.... OOWWW! he bit me!" I was TRYING to say they wanted to be petted. LOL. Here's a few pics from the day. Are they not adorable? Oh my! Thanks to my friend over at DaisyPetals for the first two pics from the day :)

They wanted to nurse

He was a favorite. So tiny. So cute

As for Project 31, today is my day 13. What would I like to change about me for the better?
I would like to change the way I come off to people sometimes. I am told that I have a way of making people feel guilty and I do not like that at all. It's totally unintentional but I've been told by a few people. I know it's in my tone of voice and my choice of words. I have been working on it over the last year, and I hope that I am making progress. I do not think I am perfect, in fact I KNOW I am not perfect and I don't want anyone to ever get the impression that I think I am better than them. Sometimes my tone of voice can be accusatory. I am hoping by taking more time to think about what and how I say something, that this will fix itself naturally.
