So I had from last Tuesday until Sunday off from work, and I actually got to do something FUN with it! While I did recently have a shit ton of time off, that was all dedicated to surgery recovery, and when I had three days off for my best friends wedding, day 3 was - … Continue reading Almost like vacation!
Last week marked when I could start riding and lifting over 20 pounds again! Sadly the riding hasn't happened yet, but I've briefly picked up a few things in the aforementioned weight category. What muscle tone I did have before my surgery is long gone though, so I'm erring on the overcautious side and am … Continue reading A new season
I'm having trouble keeping up. For example, I started this post last Wednesday - a week post-surgery.

Last Thursday was my first time back on Rain (the equine) since she's had some bodywork. She's now had two sessions of craniosacral therapy, and, having observed three different horses get the treatment, I can say it is one of the most fascinating concepts I've seen in a long time and appears to make a … Continue reading Rain day
