House of pain (edited) (edited again)

It's shaping up to be One Of Those Winters ... I'm sick.  Again.  If an alien does not spring forth from my face, I will be rather surprised.  

It's irritating for a variety of reasons -- first, I've been doing SO well with vitamins, diet, exercise, allergy meds, all that.  The fact that I can do so well and still get miserably sick is annoying.  

Second, obviously, lack of riding.  I don't want to do anything but sleep and lounge inside.  Definitely not go outside and ride.  I just feel rotten.  I did call TW and ask if one of the three riders could put a ride on Apollo this weekend; she said that could be arranged.  This will be awesome, I think.  Still.  I will get out there tonight after work, by hook or by crook.

EDITED:  Um, well ... since I can't decide if I'm freezing or roasting and generally feel awful, I am staying home.

Third ... I'm sure I had a third reason in here somewhere.  It's lost in the headache.

ANYway.  My jump saddle is fixed and ready to go at the FLTS.  I'll pick it up Friday, yay!  We'll see how it goes.  I might need to grab a riser pad while I'm there.

Saturday is judging at the schooling jumper show, with TSB holding the timer.  Woo!

Meanwhile, I sniffle.

ALSO?  Who needs human kids?  Sparky, my boy corgi, has an ear infection.  I have to giggle a teeny bit, because it's such a familiar story: one member of the household gets sick, then the others fall one by one.  And ear infections in kids are standard issue ... my kid just happens to have four legs and a tail.  :)    We'll get to the vet as soon as possible.
