OW!

The trash is picked up on Tuesdays. I usually forget until I hear the trash truck at the neighbors, so I thought I'd be on top of things today and take the trash out tonight instead of going into my normal panic in the morning.

The small dumpster was empty, but I had some small trash cans that could be emptied into it. The lid was open and dragging on the ground in front of my feet. I stepped on it, lost my balance, but caught myself before I fell. But as I steadied myself I stepped on it with my other foot and was not as fortunate at saving myself from falling. My head crashed into the side of the dumpster and I caught myself on the concrete, scraped up my arm and bent my finger back. My ankle twisted in the fall.

My 12 year old was right there with me as she was grabbing groceries out of the trunk of the car. I didn't know the extent of my injuries, I just know I was hurting, especially my finger and head. I rubbed my head with my non injured fingers, and there were no open wounds so as long as I ended up with a bump on my head I knew I was going to be okay. I wiggled my finger, ankle and wrist to see that they were okay. I laid there and cried as my daughters looked down on me helpless not knowing what to do.

I have a huge lump on my head, and a headache. *pout* Now I have to make dinner for my son and his girlfriend. *sigh*

Sorry to hear that.

Does it make you feel better to know that you've probably used up your bad luck for a little while? No, I didn't think it would ...

DaphneR are you really that unfortunate to fall like that? The way you describe it you are like Miss Congeniality. LOL I love Sandra Bullock.

BigGirlzRSweet I am doing very well right now. I am glad I didn't sustain anymore injuries that I did.
