Black Eye

{ it looks worse in real life, so embarassing }
I have to show you my black eye , second one in my whole life, how does this happen ?? well this was a cleaning accident....I swear, I was bent over in my crawl space trying to clean my basement and I tripped over my pajama's I think and went down face first right onto a big metal part of an exercise machine , I thought I had broken open the skin , it sure felt like it, I thought I was going to need stitches, thankfully it was just a bad bruise that just kept getting worse, my knees were bashed and I had really bruised my arm oh and I was all alone , I was in so much pain....how do boxers do it , this bruise just keeps getting bigger and uglier by the day , thankfully my glasses and hair camouflage it so I don't get too many concerned looks.

I had a busy weekend I made a batch of three dozen cupcakes for two little girls I used to babysit when I did home daycare and after that I got started on a bathroom reno for a client in my neighbourhood and even had a nice visit with my family and my MIL and SIL , it was nice to have them come down our way .... busy busy
So frothy and good.


YUMMY , we enjoyed the extras

Aaaah...so sorry Chris. I thought I'd have one this week too when I bashed my head with my car door...yep car door. I was in so much pain I really thought my eye would be black. So I feel your pain...without the nasty black eye!

Sorry to hear about your eye. That sounds like something I would do, tripping over pj's. Being 4' nothing I have an on going issue with long pants. I was just able to do some catching up with all you have been doing. You have been super busy! I'm loving all of it. Great job Chris.

Take care,
Lisa

Geez! I know, put a cupcake on it ;) I hate getting hurt, the only thing worse is being alone when it happens. Poor thing :(

Don't feel bad...you were lucky you didn't break anything! I had a similar accident, tripped over pj's while rushing across a linoleum bathroom floor. Landed sideways on the side of the tub (small bathroom) and broke 3 ribs in 5 places! You are a VERY LUCKY GIRL!!!
We just all need to slow down a bit......

Try some vinegar on the area on a cold soft rag. It helps it heal quicker. I have a three year old and everytime he climbs up on my lap while I am in the rocker he hits my eyebrow and boom instant black eye. I have had several but I have a bad bruising problem. So I avoid the rocking chair now. I tripped on my pj's and flapped my arms like a bird not to hit our dining room table. My husband and kids laughed so hard. so did I. If I had hit my face on it. I would of been going to the hospital I hit the floor so hard. Thank god I had wings! I love your home and Merry christmas.

Oh, Chris! Ouchy! Well your cupcakes look delicious despite that you iced them one eyed. You need a pirate eye patch, it will go with the beachy decor. Every good beach house needs a piratess!
