Not much today exercise, I got hammered.
Wednesday, May 16, 2018
We start every day with a walk in the country with the dogs. Today started the same way. I took the day off today to take one of my dogs to the vet, not a big deal, just a follow-up. Most weekdays I go to work, but today I didn't because we planned after the visit to the vet, to install a new storm door. When we got home, we started working on the door. We had to remove some of the brick moldings we added to on the last storm door ( a cheapie too small, long and boring storm door story ). I got my husband a step so he could have something to stand on. I put the step down, it flipped over. He didn't see that it flipped and picked up the hammer to tap the little wrecking bar into the moldings on the top of the frame. I bent down to set the step up right. He didn't know I was bending down, I didn't know he was picking up the hammer, and bam, he got me in the forehead with the hammer. I have never been hit in the head with a hammer before. It was unpleasant. Jim was just raising the hammer and not wielding it, but it left a nasty mark and a fairly large knot. We went to emergency. I'm glad it wasn't an emergency. There was no doctor in the building. We sat and chatted with another couple that was waiting for the same, not present doc. She wanted a cast on her arm removed, not an emergency. After about an hour and a half of nice conversation, I thought it was time for me to leave, so I went home. I never did see a doc.
I have always been a little hard headed. Today was proof of that. The knot rose up and went down. Now it is almost gone. By the time we did the hospital visit, and finally installed the door, I didn't exercise. I did notice that if I raised my blood pressure a bit, or bent down, the diminishing knot throbbed. It was a good enough excuse for me not to get it all moving. I'm not sure how long I can use that excuse, but hey, smoke 'em while you got 'em. Tomorrow is another day. I will avoid hammers to the head, and get some exercise in.
