I am not normally a clumsy person nor do I let much slow me down. But this weekend, I felt like I was 'Goofy', the cartoon character.
We spent our beautiful, 90 degree weekend outside finishing yard work. It seemed to all start when I turned around on our porch and caught my ankle on the base of the wooden rocker. Damn! That hurt! For a few minutes it went numb, and then WHAM! It started throbbing! Within a very short time it started turning black and blue.
It wasn't long after that I turned around the other direction and caught the top of the very same foot on the blade of the saw-saw. Now, that one really got me! At first I thought I had just grazed it and went on with what I was doing until I realized I was bleeding all over the damn porch! So off I go in search of a large enough bandage and some Neosporin to doctor my blang foot.
Seriously, it didn't look like this...it was just fine with an over-sized band-aid.
My day proceeds on without event until late afternoon when I pleasantly smash my thumb with a hammer! I'm sure you can only imagine the words that came out of my mouth with that...
I thought I was finished with getting 'beat on' by the elements of my day until I ran my hand along the porch railing and picked up a splinter in my left hand. This would not normally be a problem but as I am left handed, I can't do shit with my right hand! Absolutely no coordination with my right hand to hold a needle and try to pry that little booger out of there with a pin. So today, it is festered up and hurts like a son-of-a-bitch!

I'm wondering how many days will it be before it works its way out of there. Anyone have any ideas??©
