Field trip

A few weeks ago I was supposed to visit a local horse farm, but I had to cancel. Today's the day! I'll be meeting M, a local horse farm owner, and spending a bit of time with her horses. I'm so excited! I haven't been around horses much since my spinal fusion in 2000. But being around horses is like riding a bike--even if you haven't done it in a while, you don't forget how.

Pictures will be up tomorrow. Check back. :)

Jessica,

I didn't know you had spinal fusion. Are you allowed to ride anymore? (Forgive me if that's already clear in older posts.)

I was taking horseback riding lessons and I was learning to jump. Even though the fence (whatever you call it!) was low, it was exhilarating to go over with the horse. I had only a few weeks' of jumping before my orthopedist said NO HORSEBACK RIDING. (Four compressed discs due to bad dive in eighth grade.)

In any case, I still want my own horse!
Hey Danette,

Oh, that's bad timing about your riding! :(

I am allowed to ride, but if I fall and land the wrong way, I could snap my rod and be paralyzed. It's all at your own risk. I haven't been on a horse since my surgery, but I desperately want to! :)

Totally random, but I'm getting SUPER excited about the Twilight movie. Crazy excited. Like maybe I should read Twilight for the third time excited. I can't wait.

This weekend, I'm going to be a hermit and stay in. I'll be writing non-stop and getting that word count meter bar moving.

All set!

Apologies about the difficulties with downloading the video! The awesome Jo at Glass Slipper Webdesign walked me through it and everything is all set!
