My First Shiner!!

Yesterday I got up feeling great, excited about the day, baked a cake before 10:00a.m. and started cleaning the house!! I was even enjoying that mundane task until the candlestick and I had a little altercation. As I was dusting our mantel, somehow my left hand bumped the candlestick and the next thing I knew I was "seeing stars"!!! Within two minutes, I had a goose egg on my left eyebrow. I stopped and put ice on it for a little bit, but got back to cleaning, took a shower,etc. As the day went on, the discoloration got worse and I wasn't feeling so hot myself. This morning I made a quick trip to the Walk-In Clinic, had an x-ray to make sure there was no fracture, and was sent home to take it easy. Last week, colonoscopy, this week...candlestick. Wonder what's in store for next week...Swine Flu????? Sure hope not! Have a safe and fun Halloween from one scarey looking woman...ME!

Dusting is on my to do list today, but now I may wear a bike helmet! Now I will be extra careful.
Bless your heart. You are still beautiful even with a black eye!!

Jo Carol, I had so much fun with you today. Your roses were beautiful and your black eye has changed since Saturday. You should post the progression.... See you Thursday!
