First Day Out and About

I went OUT! I was out all day :) Out in the real world! =D>

I was chauffered everywhere, but I managed lunch out with my mother and daughter - I actually sat, in a real chair.

Then, I not only stuck around my mother's house all afternoon, but then we went to a horse meet and dinner afterwards!

No, I did not ride, my dad was an official and we just hung out while watching all the competition.

Made me nostalgic, I wonder if I will ever feel like I can ride again. My dad has had 3 back surgeries and does ride upon occasion, but it took him years and years post op and even now he does not ride much.

Anyway, it was just so so SO good to be out and about. I did not want to come home.

I'm kind of paying for it today. Today is also my first day with only Robaxin, no emergency Roxicodone to bail me out.

But it was worth it :D
