I took off Monday morning because I had a million things to do. I had to make some tail bags to send out, and my house was a disaster. It stressed me out. Monday mornings are easy for me to take off without having to write blow by blow lesson plans. A good friend of mine subbed for me, and my student teacher took over for me. That went well and I got about half done that I needed to.
Monday night a friend and I started to take an exercise class. Believe it or not I loved it! My knee and hip have gone to hell and I can't run without pain. SO we started taking a deep water exercise class. It was beyond fun. We did it for an hour and got out of the water and almost fell over we were totally jello like. I am STILL sore. Just what I needed though. I don't remember the last time I laughed that hard, or had that much fun working out.
Tuesday (was that only yesterday?) was a long day. Longer than it needed to be. Our Superintendent visited our school. One of my students yelled "F****** B****" which made me look awesome. Another student's mom died of an overdose. I only pray they didn't find her. Tuesday night sucked all around for lots of personal reasons.
I woke up today to find out that they are going to be putting down the gelding that I've been writing about. Mr. Romeo. I love that horse and he is so sweet. He was running around a lot and did something to his fetlock. He isn't sound just standing around and isn't doing well. I am running out of work to go see him and love on him. They are letting him go tomorrow.
I went to Day 1 Round 2 of physical therapy. My leg is all kinds of screwed up. I knew that. I have a list of exercises to do to build up my hip. Once my hip is built up they are going to work on my knee. I apparently hyperflex my knees when I stand and lock them. My calves are messed up because of the way I stand. My right knee is screwed up because of the way I walk on my right foot. My hip has no muscle tone. If I was a horse I would probably be put down. :( The good news is that she said I could ride. She said she'd figured I would anyway, so why make me feel guilty. She must have had other riders as patients.
