Checking In

Just a quick post to check in to let everyone know that I am doing great :) I'm slightly sore, but it's going away quickly. Part of the soreness is from riding in general, not the fall. Mostly my hands hurt from the fall because I was holding on very tight when I lost my grip on the handlebars. I was talking to the bf more about it today as we recounted the episode to friends at work asking about how our weekend went, and I evidently didn't fall very far. I just tipped off the side of the quad and thus was only a few feet away from the ground when I hit. I landed on my shoulder/side pretty evenly and rolled to a nice stop. (which apparently is the right thing to do)
But anyways, I'm good, almost 100% not sore, and eager to get out again when the time is right. I swear I will be extra careful, and I've learned from the experience and know what to do in the future to prevent such an incident. Also, as requested, there will be a picture (hopefully tomorrow) of me on the quad in all my gear...it's on the bf's computer at the moment, but I'll have him send it over to me once we get to work in the morning.
I hope you all are having wonderful evenings. We're supposed to be getting rain tomorrow, I'm so excited! It's a busy week for me. I'm teaching a flute lesson tomorrow and then probably having dinner with the bf and the manager. Wednesday I've got to bake pies for Thursday when we're driving up to my parents. Friday is decorating and baking cookies with my Grama. Saturday and Sunday are various holiday events with the bf's parents.
Well for a quick post that sure got long. But it's definitely time to turn in, I'm sleepy.

Gramma Ann - Haha, well the pictures were taken the day after the fall, but I don't look too bad. Only my eyes are closed. But it's through my goggles, so, ya know. And I'm even closer to 100% today :) Thanks! I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving!

The lucky thing about accidents like that is they happen so fast you don't have time to get scared and afterwards you don't remember it anyway.
Glad you are alright.
Happy Thanksgiving

Jaina said...

MamaGeek-Thanks, I hope yours was wonderful too :)

Carrie & Troy-No problem :) I still need to get those pictures from the bf. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Trooper-Very true. I had time to know that I was going to end up off the bike, but not enough time to be scared. I was more worried about the bf having to watch me fly off the thing. I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving as well. :)
