Did Anybody See The Bus????

That hit me yesterday? OH MY GOSH I hurt! We did a tiny little adjustment to a corral panel without thinking what it would do to the bottom bar of the gate panel right next to it. I went in to feed and on the way out caught my toe on the now raised bottom bar of the gate panel......Went flying through the air, had a yard sale of the feed buckets I was carrying, empty thank God, and landed right on the point of the top of my femur. GOD A'MIGHTY THAT HURTS! Laid in the aisle til I caught my breath again and then finished feeding.


I was making Ham Hock & Beans with Spoon Bread for supper and wanted to put some beans in the blender so they'd grind up and thicken the broth. Yeah, that didn't go so well either. The lid blew up and spewed boiling broth all over my left arm. Another GOD A'MIGHTY THAT HURTS! Moment, eerrrrrrr several hours actually. Had cold packs on my arm all night, needless to say sleep was not the best.

Today.........I think I saw a Stillwater High School Bus in the barn aisle last night, I'm pretty sure that's what ran me down....UUUGGGGGGGGGH, way to have a horrible day in 30 mins or less! I think I'm going to stay where it's safe today.

Oh gosh. I know the feeling. I'm having one of THOSE weeks. Everyday thus far I've woken up, went to work and thought I wish I could go home, go back to bed, and wake up to start the day over again. But life doesn't have a "reset" button. At least, mine does not.

Hope your day gets a little better

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

Danged bad day darling.......

Like Margret Mitchell wrote to end the classic novel Gone With The Wind, Tomorrow's another day.

I assure you, it'll feel better when it quits hurting.....

Until then, 1 ounce of Tennessee's finest (Jack Daniels) every 20 minutes....It won't make you quit hurting but It'll probably make you not care about it so much.....

Here's to tomorrow!

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

LOL! Well, I'm thinkin' it wouldn't take many of those shots to put me in oblivion since I am a tee totaller. But dayum! It sure sounds good right about now. Some of the body aches have subsided some, heating pads are amazing things, but the arm is all blistered up. I'm thinkin' that discomfort is going to stick with me for a while. If I catch up with that bus driver........

Stick your arm in a tub with icewater until the pain is gone..it'll take a while but it helps, and blisters either go away or at least don't fill and become big blotches.
Tried and true...by me! You can see me walking around with a glass or cup with icewater permanently attached, when I burn a finger.....

I've had ice packs wrapped in a dish towel and ace wrapped to my arm since it happened. The blisters all came up and opened and sloughed off today, so now I have dressed the area with honey and ice packs over that. Should be all better in a day or 2, just a little painful. Nothing I can't work through.

jeez...and I thought waking up to a flood warning with city trucks outside delivering sandbags and the ocean coming into my neighbours yards was bad...

Equestrianism; 10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% pleasure, 50% pain and 100% reason to remember you're absolutely insane to be riding a beast that big.

Well Sam...I hate to tell you this, but, it is......we all have our own cross to bear don't we?

Yup. Sure do. I remember Christmas Eve 1995...we lived in an old watermill, creek going underneath it. It had rained for days, landlord got a bit concerned about the water level. I asked what he would do if the creek came into the house. He said, open the door to let it out. Next morning we were knee deep in water, in the kitchen....
