Well......I survived the family reunion on Saturday.  It was at our house and there were at least 130 people.  Everything went very well and the family helped clean up. 
 
The only thing that I wish I could change is:  We saddled up both horses for an experienced rider and a very green / novice rider.  They went up in the hayfield away from the hustle and bustle.  Next thing I know the kids are running to me to me to tell me that Magnum fell with the novice on him.  I RAN up the hill and it turns out that he laid down to roll (taking advantage which horses do).  The girl was OK, thank goodness!!  So I take hin around the perimiter and he is fine, go figure.  That ended that.
 
On Sunday I was useless and I mean useless!!  Couldn't think and hardly couldn't move.  Had to take a nap in the afternoon.
 
Well, that was my "fun" for the month smilewinkgrin

Hi Denise that does sound exhausting, Im sorry about the incident with the horse but as long as she or the horse didn't get hurt its ok.
I really dont care for family reunions because with my husbands family and my family it turns into a big drinking session. I dont drink so Im usually the one that ends up watchin all the smaller children to make sure they dont get hurt. These days I get exhausted easily and watching little ones is getting increasingly hard. Along with the fact that their usually ends up being a drunken fight somewhere along the line. :-(

Im really happy for you that yours went as well as it did. Im sorry about the crash the next day but hopefullly you will feel better soon.
Gentle Hugs

You must be one tough cookie. :) Glad you made it through. How about scheduling yourself something nice to reward yourself?

Just look at that!!!  You RAN up the hill!  That is wonderful news.  Bet you didn't think you could do that.  Then you rode the horse so you are doing very well. 
 
Some things are worth the effort...even if it wasn't anything you had planned.  You jumped into action, chronic pain and all, and saved the day.  That's wonderful!  That's called living your life.  I'm happy for you and glad you shared this story.  It shows what you CAN do with fibro!

Shirley, most of hubby's family (at least the women) don't really drink and it was announced at the begining to watch your own kids by the pool, koi pond and the dog kennel.  I turned the electric horse fence off, almost forgot tongue
 
Sherrine, My adreniline kicked in when my horse was down.  I doubt if I could have ran up that hill 5 years ago even on a bet.  So, yes even with fibro life can still be lived.  Although I was ready to kill my horse LOL
