Joining the Tuesday Train

Just to check it out and all.  Welcome all of you who find me in the bar car today!  And I'll tell you why I'll be in the bar car:

Yesterday while I was canning some dilly beans with fresh green beans from our garden, I fell down our three steps in front of our house with a full canner of water...about 15 pounds of water or so.

I did try to catch myself after I tripped on my own foot, but that just seemed to accelerate the pace of my fall, and I came smack down on my right hand/wrist.

To make a long story short, I think I broke my hand.

At the very least, I badly sprained my wrist.

And no, I have not had it xrayed yet.  I went by my work and had the nurse practitioner look at it.  I'm pretty sure she wants me to get it xrayed, so, I will today after work, if it is hurting me as bad as it did yesterday afternoon.

And, that, dear friends is why you should probably join me for some drinks and possibly a Vicodin, because I'm  going to need a little anesthesia, and some good friends around to keep me from being stupid!

Drinks for everyone!

Remember, it's just a ride.


  1. I would join you if I could. I think the drive might be a bit long. But thanks for linking up with us today on the Train.

  2. Hi,

    New follower from the blog hop please come follow me back :)

  3. Ok, thanks Mad Mind & Life, Twins, Drama Queen for stopping by, and I have a small addendum:

    I finally went and got the hand/wrist xrayed today. Couldn't talk the tech into telling me if she saw anything- and I know this person!

    Psh. I guess I'll know tomorrow...
