Anyone else a Klutz?

At least one to two times a week, I find myself doing something klutzy.  Sometimes it is bumping into a piece of furniture which almost always turns into a black and blue mark.  This mark over days starts to change into different colors: red, purple, yellow.  I am so bad that often I cannot even recall what in the world I bumped into.  My poor children are klutzy/ accident prone too.  They never had a chance.

Yesterday it was the lid of the deep fryer that got me in the kitchen.  I was taking out homemade french fries and turned my head for a second towards the conversation occurring at the kitchen table.  Simultaneously, I lowered my right hand that was holding the lid onto the top of my left hand.  Did I mention that I am left handed?  Luckily I had my wits about me and put lavender essential oil with fractioned coconut oil on it and the pain ceased.  Normally I would have ran for the ice or ran my hand under cold water for 15-20 minutes.  I am getting smarter in my old age.  Too bad my sight and balance especially in the dark are not increasing as I age.  Hoping no other injuries occur this week!  Feel free to leave a comment about your klutzy moment this week.
