lest you think...

that our camping trip was a total bust after my accident, let me assure you that it wasn't. DD found a radio station that she really liked and discovered a new favorite song. We've listened to it many times since, so I thought I'd share it with you. Enjoy!

the accident

Ok, I'm totally cheating on this one. I posted to a group of friends about my accident this weekend, and to be quite honest, I just don't want to have to re-type it. I feel like I've told the story a million and one times. So I'm just going to past what I sent to my friends, then I'll add a couple of pictures, just for the fun, technicolor aspect.

We had a nice weekend away. Except for one thing. DH ran over me with the camper. It's not as bad as it sounds, I was feet away from the wheels, but all I could think as I tumbled around underneath was, "where will the tires roll over me, and will it be fatal, or just painful..." No life flashing before my eyes, no time to think to roll out of the way and lay flat in the center of the camper. Just the vague wonder of whether I'd be around for long or not. And lots of screaming.

Thankfully, I'm not badly hurt. My right elbow, and wrist are skinned up, as is my left palm. I have bruises on the backs of my upper arms and my left shoulder is scratched. My right knee is pretty banged up and I have a horrendous burise on my right hip. All in all, I look like I had a bad bike wreck. I've had a migraine everyday since, as well. Which is what I'm going to do now. Take some medicine and find a quiet, dark place to close my eyes.

This is the bruise on the back of my right arm.

This is my knee. For such a simple scrape, it sure does hurt.

This is the bruise on my hip. It is the area that is the most tender. Even turning over in my sleep hurts it. Is it any wonder? Still, all in all, I was very lucky. So I'm trying not to make my hubby pay too much....[evil grin]

Oh, and did you notice the scale I made? Very CSI, isn't it? I did that because my family kept calling to see how I was. It was almost like they didn't believe I was all right. So I took the pictures to reassure them.

New blog-first post

So today I start a new blog. It's Monday, in case you didn't know. And I don't have anything wise to say. ::g:: But I do have a lot to do. My todo list is very, very long.

We are going camping over fall break and are trying to get the camper ready to go. If we'd used it much this summer, it wouldn't be a lot of work, but since this will be our first trip since early June, it's almost like de-winterizing it all over. I have a list to work from, though. Otherwise I would forget something (and likely still will).

Writing has been almost non-existent since school started, so I'm building up my writing muscles slowly. Today's goal is only one page. I should be able to meet that goal. But first, I have to go catch the dog.

Casey got in a fight a couple of weeks ago, and she gets her staples out today. Naturally, when one of the animals has an appointment, they disappear. So I've given myself 45 minutes to go out and find her. Might not be too hard, I just heard her bark in the driveway. Better go catch her while I can.

See you soon!
