Dita says that she wishes she were as laid back as I am. More patient.

The truth of the matter is that I am not more patient, I'm just not as intense.

I have been searching for the right word to describe how I am vs. how Dita is. Many thanks to writanya for her post of today. She hit upon the exact word I was searching for. That word is mellow.

When it comes to Dita, I am more mellow than she is. Heck, if you say the word mellow to her - I think she will explode. She is that intense.

I'm hyper, I'm impatient. I'm just not as intense as she is. Yes, Dita has toned it down since we were in high school. As a matter of fact, quite a bit. But there are times when I see her going off over things that to me, are really nothing to go off about.

And I have held my tongue quite a few times too. Because then she would vent ON me because I said something to her at the very wrong moment. I love you Dita, but its true. And I'm one to open mouth insert foot at that wrong moment.

But you know what? When I was a mom with only one child, I was more intense. With two, you just get to that point where you mellow out.

Like if Dita had to deal with my two, just her, for an hour or so, she'd be ready to vibrate into the next century. There are times when they do that to me too, but those times are more when I have been extremely stressed out by other factors, not them. For her, it would only be them.

I love my Dita. I wouldn't trade my Dita for the world. There are times when I wish I was more like my Dita.

But I'm so glad that I am not that intense.

I also know that you, Dita dear, are not offended by this post. Because we are able to talk to each other, and in fact have talked to each other about this very thing. Multiple times.

Its just that writanya hit upon the word I was looking for to describe me next to you. You = intense. Me = mellow.

I don't ever want you to change. I love you for who you are, as intense as you are.

Did I ever claim to be mellow??

But after somebody broke 2 major rules. What kind of mood would you be in? So pet has to tow the line until he proves he isn't completely stupid and will make bad decisions.
