One of those days

Ever have one of those days where you think the universe is trying to tell you to just go back to bed? I'm having one of those days.

I went out to feed the animals this morning. I was starting a new row of hay, so had to pull a bale out. It was wedged in very tightly, so was pulling with all of my strength.

Then the string broke. I went flying backwards, slamming into the steel tube gate I use to separate the llamas from the hay, before slumping to the ground. I think I'll have three lines of bruises across my back from when I hit the gate. The ground had a nice layer of hay, so at least my landing was soft. I didn't have my cell phone with me, so I'm glad it wasn't serious.

Then I was giving a llama some shots. I managed to stick myself with the needle first, enough to draw blood. I was just thankful it wasn't the penicillin one, since I'm allergic.

That was all before breakfast.

I'm going to take a few ibuprofin now.

Oh, Annie! As they say, things should get better from here. On mornings like you had, wouldn't it be nice to limp back in the house and tell your Mom she had to take care of you for a while? Sometimes that's all we need. To know someone is there to take care of us. (Even though we really CAN do it ourselves.) At times like this, do what you did. Get on your blog and tell those of us who care about you all about it. You're not complaining or whining. You just need to let us know. You will feel lots of love and caring zinging through the atmosphere to you!

do you prefer a bit of shadenfreude or outright pity?

Mama Pea, no doubt about it, I was whining!

Rick, I deserved that. Hahaha! At least I don't have stupid fucking neighbors! And I don't have to post every day because I didn't sign up for anything.

Oh Man...I don't think I deserve the right to complain about my day. Hope your day gets better!
