Not much exciting to report lately. I’ve been trying to balance taking care of all the junk involved with getting ready to move – and trying to breathe. In case you were wondering, yes, that’s a lovely combination to juggle 😛 This morning I’m all grumpy and under-motivated. Why? Who knows? I actually slept well last night, a first in several days, so you’d think I’d be all bright and chipper! Nope, I’m all “I don’t want to do ANYTHING.”
So – in an effort to ungrumpifiy myself – here’s a story for you!
Those of you who know me well know what my super-hero power is. For those of you who may not know me as well…my super-hero power is the ability to hurt myself in new and entertaining ways! No, it’s not from some sense of masochism. I do NOT go around attempting to hurt my self – I just seem to stumble on weird ways – and then I’m often highly amused with myself…
Why do I bring this up? Ahhh… your a smart reader 😉 Well, last night, I was getting myself some grapes. Rather harmless occupation don’t you think? I had this one big huge bunch and so I grapped a pair of scissors to cut off a smaller bunch. Somehow, and I honestly am not sure how I pulled it off, I managed to include my finger in that nice, quick, snip. It’s not a bad cut – just stung like anything.
Reactions to this small event were varied. I was sucking on my finger while looking for a bandaid, occasionally pulling my finger out of my mouth to comment to Mo, “Mo! I hurt myself again!” Mo was trying to figure out what on earth I was using scissors for in the first place. He even went so far as to pull me into the kitchen and demonstrate how you can simply pull the bunches apart with your hands! He couldn’t stop laughing at me. My brother, when appraised of this event via instant messaging, wanted to know why on earth I had hurt myself AGAIN and why Mo was amused instead of mad at me 😛
Pulling off the bandaid this morning it looks like the skin is already re-knitting itself together. There’s a nice little bruise though that hurts when touched or when I bend my finger too far.
See? Less grumpy already – I knew that would work!
Oooo – and if I can manage to stay feeling good – I’m going to go see my friend Jayna tonight! I haven’t seen her all summer and we really wanted to get together before I move away and leave her here 😦
