I take my math final on Friday and then sweet relief, I'm free!! Happy Dance!
Until the next semester, that is.
When I first got sick, I had a really hard time allowing myself to A) be sick, and B) let people help me. I wanted to do it all by myself, even if that meant I'd get sicker, feel crappier and make my entire family frustrated with me. I can be alarmingly like a toddler learning to feed itself.
I'm hard headed. But I've slowly been learning to listen to my body, swallow my pride and let people help me so that I can do more things on days I don't feel so great.
Lyme disease is weird, one day I can be feeling great, go for run, do pushups, ride, do homework, braid some rawhide and then BAM, not be able to walk by myself the next day. And then I can be back up and at it again the very next day. I'm hoping to make it to a friend's branding this weekend and because I haven't been feeling too hot lately, I've been taking it easy.
Which means that on this glorious first day of spring, I went for a little ride with Adrian. Not the long, "training" adventure I wanted, because hopefully I'm finally starting to carry learning forward and me babying myself today will make it so I can brand later. Sigh. Sometimes it takes me a long time to learn an easy lesson.
So my little sister was incredibly kind, caught and saddled my fat man and let me go on a short little ride around. And it was a wonderful way to celebrate the beginning of spring. As are the storm clouds hovering in the background...come on rain!!

Does anyone else do that? You finally learn a lesson that you had been bashing your head against for the longest time, and realize that it wasn't that hard to begin with?!
