Yes, I know I should be writing about 4th of July (happy birthday America) and I also should be writing about our amazing weekend at Black Mountain Ranch (but I need to edit my hundreds of photos first).
Yes, we spent the past fours days at an actual Colorado dude ranch and it was awesome. Except for that split second, when I hoisted myself up on a horse for the very first time in my life, nearly pitched myself over the other side, and managed to jam my pinky finger in 3 places.
I swear I am cursed.
At first it just hurt, but I could move it fine, so we went ahead with the ride. Then of course, it swelled up like a balloon, and began to bruise along every joint.
One of the wranglers at the ranch said he would have to TRY to jam his finger in that many places.
The ranch took care of me, of course. They looked at it, taped it, iced it, advised me to possibly see a doctor when I got home.
But do I really want to go to the doctor today, on the 4th of July, when there are picnics and fireworks to be had???
So, hi there Internet! Any more advice for this incredibly accident prone person and her messed up finger?
