Elevation

Well, my busy weekend was a bust. Since Saturday’s super fun physics experiment, and resultant hilarious evening spent in Seven Oaks triage surrounded by paramedics- I have been waging a war with gravity and inflammation. Oh, and crutches. Those things are the worst. I thought I was in shape, until using them for 5 minutes….

No more acceleration?

Tonight’s events: Something spooked a horse I was riding, it bolted, ran straight for a wall, then veered left and out a door at an angle, where I was then thrown and my leg got crushed between the horse and the door corner/wall as I fell.
