Here I am, and no, I didn't join a motorcycle gang or anything. A week or so ago when Whitney was moving, she gave Mason this little exercise wheel dealie.






.....And today I thought I would give it a try. Haha. Big Mistake. BIG mistake. I got down on my knees and gave it a push. Whoops! It took off so fast... my forehead hit the hardwood floor HARD. I was stunned for a few seconds, then felt something warm running down my face. Blood. Oh my gosh. I stumbled into the other room and looked in the mirror. I had a 2.5 inch gash on my forehead, it wouldn't stop bleeding, and my neck was really hurting too. What to do, what to do. I was at home alone. Bo was in Gruver, Mason at work. ......OK. I knew I needed stitches because it was a nasty looking gash. I got a wet rag and held it on the cut and drove myself to the Urgent Care center. Mason called in the mean time, and met me there, and Bo left the feedyard and started heading this way.

Yes, you definately need stitches, the Dr said.

Ugh, what about the scar, I asked.

Well, we could try using glue instead of stitches. Hopefully that won't leave as bad of a scar, but you will have a scar.

Great.

So he glued me up, bandaged me up, told me to watch for signs of a concussion, said I would have a sore neck for several days, and sent me home.

Didn't I just run my face into the garage door back in January??? Boy, oh boy. Seems I'm on a mission to destroy my face or something. Hopefully this is the end of that mission.

I really like your RED headband! I am glad to know that you are doing OK. Maybe we better get you a button!! That little roller thingy is dangerous. Hope you have already thrown it out. Love you.

IS that Raphael or Leonardo of the Ninja Turtles?
Honey, my goodness!
I think its safe to say that,that could've happened to anyone, and with that being said, I need to say, "Hon, your not as young as you once were." Thats why someone bought it for MASON!
Dont tell anyone (LOL) but somebody got one of the boys some of those "perfect pushup" things and when no-one was looking, I tried to do 'em. I didn't hurt myself , but I'm glad no-one was watching...it was hilarious, even to me.
I hope your O.K. You need to take it easy- no sudden moves...you probly rattled your brain!
Love ya,
Gendy

Oh Carol, not funny! You could have had a really bad concussion. Maybe you need a helmet to wear when you are trying things new...Well, guess that wouldn't included running into the house....oops, I mean the half closed garage door.... :)

I remember the last time I tried a cart-wheel. I actually hurt myself, my legs weren't used to stretching like that...I don't do those anymore, but I admire that you want to keep in shape...good job!
