I am sitting at the dealership having keyless entry put on my new truck. Weird that it didn't come with that. There are a lot of "options" I can do without in a truck. I don't need a DVD player or heated seats, but I do need that little clicker on my key chain to make my life easier. The other night I hit lock on the door before John got his coat out of the backseat and we exchanged words. Simple gadgets for keeping the peace.
The dealership does have a business center. I started out by using their computer but found they firewalled all my favorite sites and they were not x rated! Facebook? Blogspot? Please! So I had my laptop (or loaner laptop - long story) with me, so I pulled it out and viola`, I am back in business.
Today is an optional holiday at work. I was feeling pretty beat up last night so decided to take the option. I can't say I feel worse today than yesterday, but I do have some new aches and pains. And a bruise has finally appeared and its not on the side I fell on. Perhaps from the saddle horn as this arm would have been coming across the saddle when I went down? Who knows. Call me crazy but I do find bruising fascinating.
My helmet ended up with some smudges and 2 small cracks. You can see one of the cracks by the vent. The other can't be seen as well; it is over by the ear. This helmet has seen its day. I have other helmets I can wear - I have seemed to collect them lately.
Thanks for all the notes about wearing a helmet. I know those of you who do know the importance, and perhaps someone who doesn't, will think about it now. Its possible I have a mild concussion - undiagnosed by anyone but me (but I bet Mindee would agree.) Having two boys in football, I recognize the symptoms and know there is nothing you can do about it except try not to get hit in the head again for awhile.
My internet doctor says, "For mild concussions, you should get plenty of rest during the day and sleep at night. Gradually return to your normal activities, without over doing it. Ibuprofen can be taken under a doctors advice, but avoid alcohol and other drugs."
I've reluctantly laid off the pinot noir and only rode 5 miles yesterday. At a walk.
Happy Monday, all.
