we had some excitement here last night ….. D#2 fell off the horse during lessons and then afterward complained that it hurt to breathe deep. After dilly dallying about it, I decided (at friggin 9:30 pm – couldn’t have made this decision at 7!) that it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have this looked at. Boar and girlfriends told me that even if she did break a rib there would be nothing to do about it. But I thought it wouldn’t hurt to get it checked and also today would not be good for dealing with this type of thing – better to have it checked when I can actually take her to the x-ray. The end of the story is that Boar was right – nothing was done, and she didn’t actually break her rib, just really banged up. But I do feel better that they looked at it and determined that it is all fine. Of course, I am exhausted now…… got home from the adventure at midnight. She is staying home from school today. And I am off to work.
thanks for all your help with my little aran nightmare —- it has been decided, with the help of Kathleen, who I will torture every step of the way, that I shall knit Irish Moss by Alice Starmore. Yarn shopping happens tomorrow!
