Oh, My Birthday

So my birthday came and went - Wondering how it went?

Wednesday-Friday: Stomach Virus... Work was fun.

Friday (Lucky's Anniversary): Supervisor let me out about 10 mins early which was great because I still felt like crap, but bad because I got a phone call from Ms. Kate who had driven all the way over to give me a box of Lucky Charms. *sniffle* She dropped it off at my house and against my better judgement I ate a HUGE bowl of it with whole milk... I was going to regret that. But to know I have friends like that makes everything I try to be worth it...

Saturday: Woke up feeling like $1,000,000. Lucky Charms you did it again! Worked a good shift and headed over to feed the ponies then to attend a fantastic par-tay! There was even a bounce house which I took complete advantage of. Met the cutest little boy who I wanted to take home but I think that would've been frowned upon. Played some beer pong, flip cup, then ended the night with a concussion. Woohooooo!

Sunday: Headache... Sleeping... Missed out on the fair... Dinner with my brothers' grandmother and the family... Headache... Went to ride pony... Brantley was dead lame... On his scared leg of course.

Monday: Pony still lame... Had a panic attack in his stall because he couldn't turn around. Not himself. Went to work... Headache... Nauseous... Sent me home early to go to the walk-in, walk-in sent me to ER. There was a huge argument about who was going to bring me to the hospital between Mom & Dad... Did I really need a CT Scan she said? No... I could just be bleeding from my brain. Whatever. Grade 2 concussion. No riding for 2 weeks, good thing my pony is broken. Not supposed to work for 3 days, HA! No writing, reading, watching TV, playing on my phone. Har har har. If I can't ride, run, or work? I'm going to read. Taco Bell for dinner with Mason and my Dad.

All in all, Monday was a pretty good birthday.

Tuesday I went to work... Mistake. Called out Wednesday, and now it's Thursday (already had the day off). I've been sleeping like crazy and soaking B's foot 2x per day and he's already looking a lot better. Stone bruise abscess we think (I hope). Really didn't want to have the vet come out.

Needless to say, going to miss the barrel race on Sunday but that gives us both time for some R & R, ground work in the bit, and maybe get prepared for the schooling show on the 7th. We'll make it!

Alright, so I have to boast about how amazing my friends are, especially K. Her and her hubby stopped me at the park 'n ride before I went down to the ER insisting on giving me my birthday gift which was totally unexpected. When I pulled it out of the bag I seriously wanted to cry. It's a BEAUTIFUL breastcollar for Brantley. Leather, studded, cowhide hair. Probably the best gift I've ever received... I mean ever (that includes diamond earrings from an ex). But if you're a horse girl you'd understand. I can't wait to dress Brantley up and post pictures of it. Still haven't put it on him yet because I'd just want to ride even more.

Oh! Funny story about the gift... Once again she drove to my work and arrived like 10 mins after I left!

Ugh, headache is back. Hope everyone's enjoying their ponies so I can live vicariously through ya'll!

Thanks! And I'll get some up as soon as I put myself together again. One injury after another... Ready to be done with it.
