Givaway alert! Read on for more info! But first I must babble at ya.
So much for not getting hurt last night when Tonka knocked me over. You remember I mentioned having a rib out? Well, it finally had gotten better (I think, at least it wasn't bothering me anymore) and now thanks to Tonka I have the same sort of pain on the other side. The chiropractor insisted that he fixed it, but it still feels the same. Money down the drain... How does one fix their upper back when it insists on doing things like this? I'm feeling that the chiropractor isn't the answer. Stretches? Yoga? If I could just get it in place I promise I'd be more dedicated with my exercises to strengthen it. I'm not sure I should work out when everything's out of whack though.
On to another non-horse-related subject. I have been more in the sprit of giving this year of my life than ever before. I LOVE it. Even though most times what I give is small, it may make a big difference in the larger scheme of things. Ripples in the pond. Today at the grocery store the Salvation Army bell-ringer was there with his red collection thingie, and instead of slinking by because I have no cash, I happily folded up a dollar to give and told the man "Merry Christmas!" I am going to make a major effort to at least have some change on me whenever I go out.
So, in the spirit of giving, I'm going to have a few little giveaways this month. Small things, but hopefully fun things. And hopefully in return the winners will "pay it forward" with a small giving gesture of their own. Just leave me a comment on this post and I'll pick someone randomly. Consider yourself ordered to leave a comment if you're here reading. Say "cheese" or "rumplestiltskin" if that's all you can come up with. If you are tempted not to comment because you don't want the gift, I promise you I'd be happy to donate to a great cause in your name. There are many options available for giving at this site.
I'll announce the winner Sunday night.
