12/17/08 Where Have I Been?

Saturday - Rode a little bit, but nothing too intense. It was horrific windy - the 20-something mph winds that seem to blow one sideways... Romeo, bareback, nothing too serious, though.

Sunday - Les and I have this plan to widen my arena to 70ft wide. We worked on it, got most of the posts pulled and the fence tape down. Area was disced heavily, and it's beautifully soft sandy dirt back there... Unfortunately, the harsh winds continued, and turned my back pasture into a dust bowl. No riding... Too windy.

Monday - after work, I stopped at a walk-in med clinic - Sinus Infection, as I had feared. Drugs, drugs, drugs.

Tuesday - stayed home, watched the horses from the window in their turnout blankets. More drugs, sleep, and good home cooked food.

And here we are at today. I won't be riding again today. While the weather is cooperating, my health isn't, yet... I question to myself if I should even be in the office today, spreading these germs and nasties all around the lab. *cough cough* Mild fever and Tylenol doesn't seem to be hitting it. Darn it...

So, I'm sick, and too stubborn to admit I'm sick. Darn it!

I haven't ridden much either, not since Sunday. It's too cold here, I don't want to do anything but stay inside! I hope you feel better soon, being sick is no fun at all.

Virtual chicken noodle soup and lots of hot tea with honey coming your way. Nasty winter crud - it's a nuisance. Hope you feel better soon!

Thank you, ladies. Much appreciated ... as I sit here at my desk, feeling like absolute road tar, I really wonder why the heck I didn't stay home another day..
