Me, I’m the House Klutz!
So the other night, I turned the light off, and went to get into bed. But I somehow tripped into the nightstand and now have a pretty awesome bruise on my knee. Normally I leave the bathroom light on and turn that off last since it’s two steps from my bed. That night I did it in opposite order. I wasn’t thinking, I guess. Or more likely, I was thinking about something else and not paying attention. Even so, I still have no idea how I so badly miscalculated where I was in the room and walked straight into the nightstand instead of stopping at my bed. I spent the next twenty minutes icing my knee before re-attempting the tricky feat of getting into bed
I can pretty much guarantee I won’t do that again, LOL!
Then yesterday I was washing the floors, and slammed my right hand into the granite countertop. It felt like punching stone! But at least for that klutzy move, I can use the excuse that I’m haven’t developed a mental map in my head of how far the countertop overhang is. My hand is fine, just one joint and my wrist are mildly sore, but not bad enough to slow me down any
Those are just the two bigger ones. I’ve been bumping into stuff here and there as I’m getting used to the new house (plus unpacking and moving stuff around). My legs are so marked up, I wore pants when I went out to lunch over the weekend with my sister I’m now referring to myself as the House Klutz!
Anyone else injury prone in new spaces, or is it just me???
