So sorry that this copy and paste is going to be on all of your pages. Will try to make this as short as possible. Thursday was beautiful but a little windy. I'd woke up not feeling my best. I was out of my anti- depressant medication and sore from shoveling and carrying gravel. Still not done. I'd said I was going to ride Lightning. First, I watered the trees and plants in the front yard. While watering the last tree, something had crawled up the inside of my jeans and bit my right thigh. Pain and agony. Broad daylight and I'm out in the front yard with my hand down the front of my pants trying to find whatever it was. Probably a spider. Still have a hard knot and a large swollen bump from it. Something paid me back....I went inside and got the bridle. It was so twisted up. Took a while to straightened out. I tried to put the bit in Lightning's mouth, but the Big Red Machine clinched his jaws and after several tries and getting aggravated, I stopped. I went inside, grabbed a couple of dog leashes to use as reins and attached them to Lightning's halter. I'd taken his fly mask off and bandaged the tumor. It didn't want to stay on and finally fell off. I put his fly mask back on. Austin, with the camera in hand, kept leading Lightning around to position him next to the corral so I could get on him bareback. No way was he going to allow that. I'm no Danya, and he's definetly not Koot. Cowboy Doug and his sister were watching. Wendy yelled over to me asking if I was going to ride the horse. I yelled back that I was trying. It was an ugly experience. After awhile of this pitiful display of horsemanship, I walked to the trampoline mumbling I'm no cowgirl. I did mention I was out of medication? Austin brought Lightning over to me. I sat on the trampoline kissing his nose. Then Rick came home! Now I'll be able to get on and ride! HA! No such luck. When Rick got him positioned next to the corral for my big behind to get on, Lightning backed up as I swung my leg over. I was on his neck. I quickly got off, but not gracefully. I missed my footing on the side of the corral and slid down it. Okay, that hurt. One more try. Big Red would not cooperate. I told Rick that was enough. I went in the house crying like a failure. Took the medication that Rick had brought home, called David, and he's coming over to help me get my riding back on track. I then went back down to the corral, draped my arm across Lightning's back and laid my face on him. He paid no mind as he munched his hay. That's why I said it was ugly enough for Cowboy Doug to hang his hat up forever. He witnessed it all. I was so aggravated with myself. Then, a couple of hours later, Nausea hit. I got so sick. Figured it was from the bite. I hope whatever bit me got sick, too. Later, I'm in the shower and my cat knocks my bath towels in the shower with me. The next morning, my heel got caught under Austin's door as I was closing it. Another ouch. Closing with a Hug and a vote.
