"It's probably not a good idea to run around the side of the house, the walkway is un-even and you might trip and fall and end up in the emergency room!"

Yep, that's exactly what happened. It was a Saturday just like any other...out doing yardwork and enjoyng the nice weather. i was in the front yard and needed a yard waste bag which was in the back yard. I thought I would get in a nice sprint but landed face first on the walkway instead. No broken bones (thank goodness) just a huge knot on my head, 2 black eyes and a bad cut on my finger requiring stitches.

i just want to send a reminder to everyone to stay aware. You only have to take your eye off the ball for a split second!!!!!

    I hope you heal quickly, and walk slower! Seriously, when we are in a hurry is when the accidents/incidents happen...ouch! I wish I could be out doing yard work, but my yard is still under at least a foot to two feet of snow! If I fell now, I would just freeze to death!

    Ouch! I am so sorry. That is so scary, that even with the best intentions, accidents can happen. I hope you are recovering well and someboday is taking good care of you.

    Oh my gosh! I'm glad that you're going to be ok, but sorry that this happened to you- it sounds painful. I hope you're resting up and taking care of yourself!
