Clumsy me

This week has been so fast and furious that we had not unpacked all the suitcases, including mine in the bedroom. And of course it was the big one. Well, we had it sitting in the floor and the big cat, Tygger had taken it over as if to say, "you aren't going anywhere, anytime soon." That was okay, because we had it set it out of the way or at least I thought it was. The other night, I was going into the bedroom to go to bed, and the lights were off. Koda, the little dog was under my feet. I rounded the corner into our bedroom and went tripping pretty as you please over the edge of the suitcase, spilling right onto the floor. The suitcase had some kind of hard plastic edge to it that scraped and bruised my thigh all the way from the knee. I was laying on the floor crying and the dog was licking my face. He thought it was a game and funny. Inspite of my screaming when I fell, the kids did not wake up. Bob came in and rescued me, turned out I have a pretty bruise and abrasion. It has really hurt for a couple of days. We iced it down and I have been using IBprophin. I have been wearing shorts too, could not stand anything to touch it. Needless to say, the suitcase has been emptied and put away. Tygger is very angry with us too for doing that or maybe she was angry that we went away in the first place.

Ouch is what I say. When the bruise gets colorful and not hurtful maybe we can see it:)

My leg hurts reading this. I hope it gets better fast...and I'm sure Bob will make certain that you treat it properly.

Oh, that's got to be horrible. I sure am sorry.

My cat INSISTS on lying on my suitcase whenever it appears. I think it's just an evil plot to get cat hair on one more everyone in the airport can see the cat hairy bag!

If I were a nicer cat mother I guess I would buy her a little suitcase all her own to sit on. If she would sit on only that...I would in a minute! But I know better than that.

Fast healing....

Hope you're healed soon.
