like Kim....or "I said STOP!!!"

Together, Kim and I could type... seems she had some surgery on her right hand and my husband just killed my left.

But, I digress...

Our shed was blown down in a straight line wind last weekend. After lunch he asked if I would help him pull up the foundation which is made of wood.. Sure! Why not?

He hooked the chain up to the truck and as I was standing there trying to run to get out of the way he jerked the chain with the truck and the board came loose and knocked me clear off my feet. I had yelled "STOP", but he thought one more jerk would take care of it. It surely did...

Then of course he helped me up and halfway across the yard I fainted... {sigh} I knew it was going to happen, but of course I was down before I could say anything..

Now my left shoulder, arm and wrist are very sore and I have a gouge out of my left ankle that is now bandaged, but hey....

Let's all look on the bright side...

I didn't have to help finish loading the truck!! LOL

Pat said...

Oh, now...that is terrible. I hope you are better soon!!! Once in NJ, we had a twister go through and LIFT our shed and depostit it IN our above-ground pool...that was NOT a fun time. BUT...the weird thing is that things in the shed didn't even move....bikes were still standing upright on their kick-stands......very weird day for us.

Sounds like a nasty accident Nancy....but really - you could have just said you didn't want to finish loading the truck! Hope you are on the mend soon.....and maybe some hearing tests might be in order for hubby?

Shelly - Dragon's Dolphin said...

OMG girlfriend! You are lucky that you weren't hurt any worse than you were. And I do agree that it is time to get hubby's hearing tested. But all of that to get out of loading the truck? Geesh, I think you could have just said "NO I don't want to do this anymore!" But what do we know? As usual, our prayers are with you and hope for quick recovery so we can see the remainder of your to do list get finished this summer. Keep us posted with that one handed typing!--or make hubby type for you.

Groan! You poor sweet baby. I hope that he or someone is looking after you. I guess you could say your got wamyed or wamied or I really don't know how to spell it. Pow! Take care of yourself and try not to do too much. You and Kim should rest up together and keep each other company!

Oh you poor thing, I'm sure your hubby feels awful about it. Surely it must be worth a new machine or fabric shopping:))
