Before I sign off, I'll tell you something that happened this past week.....I was putting away our sunscreen other day. Well, let me rephrase that, I shoved it in a basket, in the garage, to sort out later. So when later happened, namely around noon the next day, I reached in the basket to get the sunscreen and I got the shit zapped out of my hand.
"OUCH. GAWD. FUCK. What in the hell was that?" I ripped my hand out of the basket and smashed the shit out of it on the underside of the shelf the basket was sitting on.
"OUCH. GAWD. FUCK. You have got to be kidding me! What the fuckety-fuck else is going to happen?" I mumbled as I cradled my limp paw in my other arm. I was still trying to figure out if I had peed a little bit from whatever tazed me, it shocked me that bad. My fingers were both on fire and numb at the same time. Not peasant.
And now the back of my hand hurt.
Great, just great.
I looked in the basket to find this tennis racket. Only it wasn't a tennis racket, it was some bug zapper thingie my husband bought and put in the basket of crap. And it was still turned on.
I got tazed by a fucking bug zapper.
And the back of my hand was really hurting. My fingertips were getting less numb and tingly but gaw fuck, my hand really hurt.
|That is an awesome bit of information right there.|
I looked down and the back of my hand was swelling up. I smacked my hand so hard on the garage shelf it burst a vessel. Thanks to my back hurting, I've been on non-steroidals and a glorious side affect? It thins the blood. So when I smacked my hand and broke a vessel, it swelled up like a tick. All this blood was sloshing around on the top of my hand.
I almost threw up.
And that was the point in which I gave up. I went inside and sat down. I called my husband, started crying and put ice on my hand. I managed to elevate it and found an ace bandage and covered it up so I didn't have to look at it.
I guess getting tazed is what it takes to get me to slow down.
So I'm slowing down.
I should be back on Monday but I make no promises. I'm going in for some work on my back later today since its not healed up quite as nicely as we would have liked.
Never in a million years did I think I'd have back pain. I'm pretty fit, not too fat and don't generally do stupid things. Wait that last part is a total lie. I invent stupid things. And I do them on a regular basis.
Anyway, go and show Pam some love at i Love Shelling if you want to see some pretty shells and me standing upright without a tazed hand and make your way to SPD Blogger Network to see what I have to say about being outside.
Thanks you guys. Please know I'm doing what I can to survive summer and my kids....and you are a big part of that.
