OH, THE PAIN! Don’t work In Birkenstocks!
Thursday, June 28, 2018
Two trees in our HOA had blown over on community property. I’m VP and know that to properly run an HOA board, members should be willing to physically WORK...boy do I and by blessing of marriage, so does beloved. So we tottered off the cut up the trees and stack the wood. We hired a neighbor kid to help us and earn him summer money, they cut, I moved wood. I tried pulling a large piece of dead tree and it shot forward, slamming into my left big toe and smashing it. Split the nail in two, bent it backwards...and I couldn’t scream because we had a teenager with us. It poured with blood, so, being an RN I wrapped it with a Kleenex I found in my pocket. Don’t you love it? 😁 When we finished and we’re finally home again I crept away, washed it and bandaged. My husband shrieked when he saw my foot. You need to wear SHOES! You can’t LIVE in Birkenstocks! Sometimes I’m out-thinking my brains....I hardly slept last night...it HURTS!
