My internet has been excruciatingly slow lately, thus no posts, but today I was looking for a little sympathy, or a lot, (not much around here) for my boohoo booboo.
I am almost too embassed to tell anyone how I hurt my arm, yes, it was on a quad (hanging my head in shame). I hate the darn thing even more now. The board bought my cowboy one for fencing and such and it seemed like it might work to drive out to where the horses were and bring them up for work a couple of days ago.
I slipped a couple of halters over my arm, climbed on, but when the darn thing started moving it caught some part of a halter under the wheel (you can tell I bad with machinery of any kind) whipped my arm back and tugged the halters off my arm. Ooch!
I felt like it was broke but having bones of steel I figured probably not, but still, I went to ER (a somewhat regular occurance for us) only to be kept waiting ahead of a lot of really sick folks so I left, came back home, and took one of my cowboy’s nice painkillers. Well the fuss that caused so I had to go back and get it xrayed and sure enough nothing broke. Luckily Crystal was here to take me (Thanks C)
But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt bad (even with the painkillers) and I still have to help pull those dang bulls (this is the last week before they have to be out). This stupidity and my daughter spraining both wrists and me helping her earlier this week has put us way behind. Bleck!.
So I know it’s a stretch for a cowgirl in a quad mishap (stupid, stupid, stupid) but if anyone feels sorry for me at all . . . I am looking for any sympathy I can get. I’ll need it when I get off my horse today for sure.
