Next Time I'll Turn On A Light

Why do I always get injured when I can't take pain medication?

I walked into the wall the other night. No lie. I have the egg on my head to prove it. And no, I will not be posting pictures, thankyouverymuch.

Sunday night Tommy woke up at 10:00 because he had to go potty, and as I was ushering him back from the bathroom (in pitch darkness) I walked forcefully right into the door frame. Nice. It made such a loud smack that Todd thought maybe I'd broken something. Nope. Just my head. No need to worry.

Except that it has affected my neck and shoulders too. Last night after taking a shower to loosen up my muscles it actually got worse. I couldn't turn my head to the left side. Nice. But after a rough night's sleep I am feeling a bit better today. Which is great, considering I kinda need to be able to move my head.

I swear I'm not a clumsy person. Really. I guess I just don't have great night vision. Or the ability to judge spacial distances in an area I am very familiar with.

So, a bright side. Let's see. Umm, at least I missed hitting my nose on the door frame because it would have broken for sure. And this nose is already big enough as is. And at least I can arrange my bangs so that the egg doesn't show too much. How is that for a bright side?

Still, next time I think I'll worry less about waking Joey and just leave the damn light on.

I am not laughing at you but with you...because I have done this before...worrying about waking the kids...LOL LOL We are such MOMS!
Hope it does not look to bad.. ARE YOU sure you don't want to share the pics with US?????

Kelly said...

OUCH!! That is SO something I would do. I could tell you stories.....

lime said...

yikes! i feel your pain. a chiropractic adjustment might not be a bad idea.

Mom24 said...

Yikes!!! Two words...night light.

Hope you're feeling all better soon.

Megan said...

It pained ME to read this! Lol

Kat said...

Lime- That is a great idea. I was planning on calling my chiro today to try and get in for an adjustment. I haven't been there in a while so it is time to go anyway. :)

Tammy said...

Ouch! I've bumped into many things at night...once I knocked a picture off the wall looking for the light switch. Hope you are feeling less stiff soon.

Tonya said...

I've done that before, unfortunately. I liked your bright side. And I don't think you have a big nose.

Riahli said...

Ouch, this is something I would do, but I am a clumsy person, so it wouldn't be out of the ordinary unfortunately.

I have a feeling the chiropratic appointment will work wonders for you.

I'm SO glad you didn't hit your nose, that could have been really bad! Be careful girl! : )

Brittany said...

Whoa! Girl! I am so sorry! You know.. prego people are clumsier... I can't tell you how many times I fell while prego! Seriously. God has a funny sense of humor- allowing prego women to get hurt, yet unable to take anything for the pain! ah!

Indy said...

Be careful! Hope you are too hurt.

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Oof. You poor thing. Ice it--that should help.

Chrissy said...

That just sucks. Feel better.

Blame it on pregnancy brain! I milked the hell out of that excuse.

At least you could say you were sleepy and the lights were off. I am that clumsy every day. Not cute. At all.

imbeingheldhostage said...

oh sweetie, it's us, you can tell the truth, been hitting the NyQuil again?

Seriously-- no pictures?

Poor Todd, he's probably afraid to leave you when he goes to work...

I'm sorry, I just keep having Laurel and Hardy images go through my brain and it's really not funny-- you could've broken something and you're pregnant and you haven't been well and your in pain now.
Ok, I'm serious now. I hope the chiropractor can help you out with the neck pain!

April said...

I feel your pain. Ouch! I'm a chronic klutz though so I do stuff like this ALL THE TIME. LOL

Burgh Baby said...

Ouch! So glad my husband is the klutz in our house and not me. So sad that Alexis inherited his "gift."

Midwest Mom said...

I have two words for you.

Mini.

Flashlight.

Ooh, but it sounds like that really hurt! You are such a good Mommy to be the bathroom chaperone. I say, next time let Dad go! ;)

Feel better! - Julia

Susiej said...

I have been there!!! So funny.

Kelley said...

Hmmm, that situation sounds embarrassingly familiar. I've done that myself, and quite recently I might add. I hope the chiropractor does you some good. Chiropractors are WONDERFUL!

Robyn said...

Ouch. I have the worst night vision too. We have a nice LED blue night light in the bathroom that lights up the hallway too. but not so bright it wakes you completely up.

coastrat said...

One never knows what is really happening, when things go BUMP in the night.

So glad that you weren't seriously hurt, which could have happened very easily.

Take care!

Mariel said...

That sounds like me! Lovely blog!

Scrappy said...

Ouch! Reminds me of when I broke my toe (it really was broken) on my newborn baby's swing a couple of years ago.
Hope you are feeling better soon.

Momisodes said...

Yikes! That sounds awful. Especially the neck and shoulder pain. I hope that all starts to ease up for you soon. It's tough having a stiff neck with kiddos all day.

Fire Hunt said...

That is SO something I would do. i feel you with the no meds I have been sick and i can have no meds not fun!

tweetey30 said...

I have to admit I have never bumped my head but I stub my toes all the time.. Ouchie.. Hope its better soon..

Anglophile Football Fanatic said...

Poor sweetness. Is the doc letting you take Motrin? Cause it does help, a little. Be careful. You're gestating in there.

Stephanie said...

You poor thing! I can relate though - for some reason walls are my nemesis. I always hit them. Even in daylight. What does that say about me? Sigh...

Karen MEG said...

Ooof, Kat, you poor thing. But good thing on missing the nose, that would have been horrible.

We've got one of those glow in the dark night lights in the washroom...cannot live without it.

Dawn said...

That sounds so painful. Maybe its a good excuse to go and get a pregnancy massage? :)

ouch! loved reading your recollection of it. :)

I seriously don't know what I would do if I had to stop taking Advil. I mean really. I wouldn't last the nine months. I really wouldn't.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
