All Fall Down…

Like Toy Soldiers….
Or like one mom painting her bathroom and losing her footing and falling off the counter. Resulting in a gashed open shin with a beautifully flowering bruise and badly bruised ribs to match. Yep, that’s me.
Apparently my body felt the need to one up both kids.
And Time Warner Cable’s Road Runner is still crapping out.
I apologize for my absence but it actually hurts to sit up, so I am going to take a vicodin and go to bed.
Love y’all.
I swear I’ll try to be back tomorrow.

  1. Good grief! You really have a had a run of bad luck recently. I think we need to wrap all of you in bubble wrap. 😉

    Hope the vicodin works for you and you feel better soon, hon! *hugs*

  2. How about some hamster balls for the kiddos and you? That way the three of you are protected from hurting yourselves again!

  3. Okay, Rach? You need to lay off the whiskey…

    And stop giving it to the kids. One of these days, someone’s not going to believe you when you say, “Really, he got those bruises when he fell out of the grocery cart.”

    Just sayin’

  4. Rachel.. yikes. I hope your feeling better. And I am with Angie.. I have that song stuck in my head now..LOL

  5. NOT what I expected to happen after my last comment. Good Lord Rachel! Take care of yourself, and for the love of God wrap your husband in some bubble wrap for the next week. Just make sure you leave him a hole to breathe through.

  6. I was thinking the same thing as Bren–y’all need some bubble wrap 😉
    Hope you get feeling better soon!

  7. Something is seriously insane with my bloglines. I did NOT get this. I’m gonna go mess with that sucker.

    Hon, I’m so sorry you are having such a rough time.

  8. I have broken my ribs a couple of times and bruised or is awful..get lots of rest..that is all you can do 🙂

    PS I apologize for my absentee blog visitation…the beautiful wife just got back into town tonight…and it was very busy in the nest!

  9. Oh, sweetie! I’m so sorry. Hope you are feeling much better by now. Since you went to all that trouble, I hope you plan on posting pictures of the finished product once you’ve recouped enough to get it done. ;o)

  10. OH my gosh!!! I hope you feel better very soon!

    My cousin did this exact same thing, while she was pregnant!!! Was standing on her sink painting her bathroom, fell, and banged her head causing her to be knocked unconscious (did I mention she was pregnant?) Yeah, it was really scary.

  11. OUCH you too now? I’m picturing you pacing the house with bruised and battered family members gathered around…
