accident prone.

Part of the renovation where I stepped on the nail.

A day or so ago I posted to shyvixen1962 wishing her a quick recovery from a fall and finished the post with "I am accident prone."
Well bugger me dead if today I stepped on a piece of wood with a nail sticking out and straight through my big toe it went.
Well it didn't hurt much so I just went on building my walk in wardrobe and about half an hour later I went to clear some crap frm the floor and fuck me this time I drive a splinter into my index finger far enough to be bloody painful at the same time I see all the pools of blood that has been pouring from my toe.
It's not a big deal as much worse has happened like the time the dogs were barking and I walked out in the dark and stepped on the rake and you had better believe it the prongs were facing up.
Unfortunately the prongs curved over slightly and when three of them drove into my foot the fucking rake wouldn't pull off.
Here I am in the dark hanging over an inside fence with a rake hanging.
I thumped on the side of the house hoping my daughter would hear but no she was sitting in front of the TV.
After about ten minutes a guy was walking past my house so I shouted to him I needed help.
Wouldn't you know it he chose to igmore me.
This really pissed me off so I shouted "Hey I have srepped on a rake and can't get it out of my foot for fuck sake knock on the front door and get my daughter to come and help.
Well this must have struck a nerve as he went and knocked (now I didn't know this till later but Kimberly looked through the peephole and didn't know the guy so she ignored him)
Great he buggers off I still have the rake firmly imbedded in my foot and no-one to help.
To cut a painful long story short about ten minutes later my daughter realised I wasn't in the house so she came looking for me and found me hanging over the fence.
She grabbed a garden chair so I could sit and went and dialled the ambulance.While waiting for the ambulance I began to twist the rake around and finally got it out but they still insisted I go to the ER and have it treated that little lot got me three weeks off work.
Years ago my wife who was allergic to the sight of blood had almost gotten used to me injuring myself and she became blase about it and the day I put my thumb through the saw bench she was hanging clothes out to dry and heard me yell words like gosh damn oh heavens, yeah right you ffn etc etc she called out to kimberly to get dad some band aids .
When she came to see what had happened and saw my thumb almost neatly cut from the top to the first knuckle perfectly in line she fainted.
That episode was worth six weeks off work.
So the one good thing about being accident prone is it gets you lots of days off work.
There have been many more.

Should I stop using power tools and stop renovating my house and pay some one to do it?

Ohh... It sounds like it might be a good idea to hire out the rest of the work. LOL

I'm clumsy. I've sprained the same ankle twice. I always have bruises that I have no clue how I got them.
