December 2, 2013 - Well Blow Me Down, or Throw Me Down or...

Knock me down.  Whatever.

I was out trying to clean up the latest pine mess from the last wind storm.  I had the big garbage can, and I should have known better than to try to move it without first closing the lid.  As I pushed it forward, the lid swung back toward my feet.  I tripped.  The can came crashing over.  I fell.  Face first.  Right onto the lid that was now on the pavement.  My nose has several cuts, it throbs, and I'll most likely end up with two black eyes.  I hope I heal by Christmas.

  2. I had such a nice Thanksgiving I was wondering where Murphy was. Take it he went to visit you?

    That sounds very painful! Hope it heals fast and the throbbing is gone soon. Would use neosporin or something like it on the cuts. (hugs)

  3. Oh no!! Take care -- that sounds painful and annoying all at once. Nice Christmas photo opportunities, though.

  5. Oh noooo... I do hope you heal by Christmas. If not, it would make for a very interesting Christmas card. ;-) In all seriousness though, I'm glad you didn't get hurt any worse. Take care of yourself!

  17. So sorry! Hope you're all healed by now. Maybe not the most helpful thing to say, but it could have been a lot worse! :-(

  18. Thank you to all who commented on my accident. The nose is much better. It was broken, so it's still tender, but the cuts are healed and the bruising is all gone. I still have to wear my glasses down toward the tip of my nose, lol, but that just makes me look even more grandmotherly!
