Well, Calamity is definitely a great and applicable name.
Saturday I had a phone call from my apartment complex requesting I trim the little tree in my backyard as a neighbor had complained. Okay, no problem. Now why the neighbor didn't just ask me I don't know but whatever. I told the office I would trim the little tree on Sunday (yesterday). So I got out my trusty clippers and began to prune the tree. One of the thicker branches was especially tough. I had to apply quite a bit of pressure while holding onto the branch so it wouldn't fall into the neighbor's yard. When the branch finally gave it gave right into the middle of my face...
Yep, you guessed it. I think I may have cracked my nose. Have a knot on my forehead and the nose is swollen and bruised. No black eyes, though, so probably not broken and I can breathe out of it but it sure looks bad.
Yep, Calamity Jane strikes again!
