    Three days ago I sliced my finger chopping onions. Two days ago I slammed my head on the truck of the mini van when I stood up, forgetting the trunk was there. Yesterday I poked my eye and scratched my face walking "under" our crababpple tree. Today, I jumped down from a stack of hay, and landed on a kid toy and clearly have sprained my ankle. I was able to get my boot off before the ankle blew up like a balloon.[​IMG] I thought I was going to have to crawl in from the barn. But made it in somehow. This is par for the course for me. What a klutz. Ouch. Nothing can happen now, I am stuck in the chair next to the fire. [​IMG]

    Yep, that's me. Always falling on my can or catching a finger in something.

    LOL I run cross country and we were jogging the other day with snow on the ground, I always seem to trip over every little detail in the ground.

    I sliced my hand open trying to open a jar of applesauce, and got my finger stuck in a hole in a door for 3 hours, I also fractured my foot between my pinkie and ring toe walking out of the bathroom. I have also managed to break half of our dish set over the last year. [​IMG]

    I fell down the back steps a couple days ago while bringing the chickens water in the morning. It was about 5 F outside and my pants froze stiff before I got up and made it back into the house to get more water.

    Give me a doorway 8 ft wide and I'll manage to bruise my hip on the side of it.

    Lol... yep, that's me, too! We were just talking about all my accidents on NYE's eve, actually.
    -Sprained my wrist when I was in Girl Scouts years ago playing some game.
    -Managed to fall UP the steps on a regular basis in Jr. High.
    -Dropped a 3' brush hog on my foot while disconnecting it from the 3 point and almost broke my foot.
    -Wasn't too careful when jacking up a truck in order to put a new gas tank in it (WARNING to everyone else - ALWAYS use jack stands if you're going to be underneath a vehicle - jacks can fail) and had it come down on me, trapping my hand between the gas tank and the frame.
    -After spending all day in the hayfield, I fell asleep driving my truck home following my dad. I hit the mower that he had hooked up to the tractor and bent the tongue of it and messed up my bumper.
    -When responding to a fire call on a cold night, while running from my car to the station I slipped on some ice and fell hard, ripping a big hole in the knee of my jeans. It wasn't until later while we were out on the call that I realized I had blood running down my leg. That one took a little while to heal.
    -Just last week I managed to break the coop (not the first time) AND get DH's truck buried in mud all in the same night!

    There have been others, but those were a few that came to mind. [​IMG]

    Maybe all that will make you feel better, Solsken Farm! I hope your ankle heals quickly!
