Literally I got all screwed back together. I am doing fine. I had surgery 2 weeks ago and all went well. The first few days were really rough but after that the pain started to subside quickly. At a week post-op I was pretty much pain free when I was resting with my foot elevated. That’s a great thing after nearly 3 weeks of straight pain. I am happy to be off of all narcotics and now take the occasional dose of acetametaphen. I think I would be off of pain meds completely had a not had a minor set back by falling a few days ago. I instinctually attempted to catch myself by putting weight on my leg. Pain shot through my leg and I then face planted onto the ground skipping my phone across the pavement. My leg has now started to ache again and some of the pain has returned but otherwise I believe I didn’t do any lasting damage. No lasting damage to me. My phone on the other had is a total loss. I have had it a total of 6 weeks. It’s not really been my month. The same evening of my fall my goats and kids were also attacked by a swarm of ground bees, getting stung several times. Thankfully though there was no lasting damage was done. But still universe you can stop now. You win!
|I guess I never mentioned we have goats now. 2 Nigerian Dwarf does. They are entertaining to say the least.|
The boredom is as awful and miserable as one might think and the fall just reemphasized my fears that if I don’t get my inability to sit still under control I am going to do more damage than good for myself. Elaina has started riding Steady a bit here and there to keep him working at least minimally. I have been considering leasing him out so he can stay in work. But it’s not likely that I am going to find a 6 month lease over the worst months of the year. I have potential interest in a year lease but then that just screws me over. Ryan says I should share Lego with Elaina. I am not sold on that idea. And could I really trust anyone not to screw up my horse? Doubtful.

Summer, it was so much fun and a lot of chaos. I am grateful we at least had a really good summer before I was grounded. It can pretty much be summed up with Pony Club, boat and Jetski activities and all American family road trip vacation. Can I really complain? Ok yes I could actually complain for a good amount of time about how it’s not fair. That I want to compete and after so many years of putting everything on hold finally everything was exactly where we needed it to be to have a really successful end of season at Novice level. But who wants to read paragraph after paragraph of my pity party?
