[Riding] No Riding...

I caught whatever the hell shadowfey had. This morning I woke up with a horrible wet cough, and a mild fever. Even though I got work done today, I feel like I've been run over by a bulldozer... I don't have the energy to do /anything/, much less ride a horse. Least of all Roman, who -- though I love him -- is exhausting on the best of days.

I finally gave in to inevitability and called Evergreen to say I won't be in today. I'm really bummed; I've never missed a lesson since I started riding, and my time at the stables is very much the high point of my week, the emotional anchor.

Maybe a more cooperative or sedate horse, I could do. But Roman? There's just no way on earth, with this cough and lack of energy, that I can manage Roman today. And I know Chester's in use, and trying a totally new horse while sick? Not fun.

Bleah. :(


I'm sorry! I didn't do it on purpose, I promise. :/ I'm still sick as a dog myself, living on tea and chicken soup that my mom brought over. She also brought over some Airborne that apparently works for kicking a cold once you've got it as well as for prevention, so you might give that a try.
Ugh, that thing seems to be going around. Take your C and find yourself some chicken soup... let us know if you can't, and we'll see what we can do.
You know, every time I comment here, it seems like it's to pick at something you said, and I do NOT want that to be the case, so I wanted to make a special point of telling you that I sincerely hope you feel better and are up and riding again soon. I will be looking forward to hopefully seeing more riding stories again from you. :)
