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.
