Takin' a Break...

Sorry I've been gone, but I've been busy reading the last Harry Potter book and rearranging my own face.

Yep.

Had a bug on my shin (you know how I feel about bugs!), bent down real fast to slap it away (get off!! get off!!) and misjudged the distance between my face and the corner of a wrought-iron and granite baker's rack.



So now I'm the proud owner of two puffy eyes and a gash across the bridge of my nose. I look (and feel) like I got beat down with the business end of an ugly stick.

It hurts to wear my glasses, and trying to focus without them gives me a headache, so I'm taking a few more days off.

Be good! Wear bug repellant! Keep your face away from pointy corners!

ATM

P.S. I added a picture just for Beth. No, my nose isn't usually this big. LOL

*hugs* lots of sympathy and

Dayum girl put some ice on that WOW!!!!!!

;-)

I can only imagine how much that hurt to have caused that much damage. Take it easy yo!

Sorry- apparently Flava rubbed off,
*shudders*

Christi said...

Bless your heart, ATM! Tell everyone you've been ordered to take a nap or four until the swelling goes down. You might have to string a few together to do this, but I have every confidence in you. :>

Awwwww, poor dear. Alot of accidents have been happening around the house, havent they....

Knowing you, you'll remember to spray bug repellent on yourself next time, and then somehow set yourself on fire....

KL said...

OMG

You damage your face, I break my leg...

How does carmachu know you and me so well??

And how does he know about the firestarting???? ;)

So, you post the shiny teeth dude, say you are gonna go and poke your eyeballs out and then try to do exactly that?!?!

Jeesh, gotta be careful what you write about!

Hope all is well soon and recovery is imminent.

Brenda said...

Lordy child, when it rains it pours on you, doesn't it? Take care of those black eyes!

Anna said...

Yeowch!! Your poor face! Hope it gets better double quick.

Annie Drogynous said...

Damn. Sounds like you need to buy some of those foam corners people use for babies. Ya' know, Attila-proof your house! ;) Feel better soon!

Miss Litzi said...

Hi Attila,
Ouch! Try to get the men in your family kiss your “boo-boo’s” and make them all better….

Have you considered tying a flyswatter around your wrist to bat away the bugs? It’d be safer…

Please take good care of yourself and heal quickly!

Beth said...

OMG, what next?

This is an awful thing to say but - how about a picture? You'd be unrecognizable...right?

Sorry. Bad idea. Hope you're feeling better soon. And looking better.

I'm shutting up now.

Special K said...

I feel a little shitty for laughing.

Eileen said...

That does not sound good at all!! I feel for you, anything around the nose/eye is so sensitive, much less bashing your face on such a hard surface. Don't think reading will help the pain. We have the book on CD if you want to borrow it. Just let me know. Take care of yourself, and make sure you ice it and take some meds. XOXO

Angela said...

Ouch! Heal up soon.

elizabeth said...

Yikes! Hope you heal quickly!

Stinkypaw said...

Ouch! That reads painfull! Hope you'll feel better soon and that no more bugs land on you!

Take care!

Jacqui said...

Nup. Can't beat that one. My lumps from where I bashed my head against the kitchen counter are under my hairline. Hurry back as i need a good laugh ATM.

Flamenco Mom said...

Holy crap, what's going on over at Casa de Attila? First Little Guy, then you? Tell Hubby and Big Guy to wear protective gear around the house, please! You poor thing, get some rest and finish up with HP. HUGS

Deb said...

Ouchie!!! Hope you feel better soon!

ally said...

that's a serious OUCH! i had a black eye once and i thought that was bad... hope the swelling goes down soon!

digibirder said...

Ouch! That looks a tad painful. Hope you get better soon.

Beth said...

Many thanks for honouring my request!
It's a beaut!

(Hope you feel better soon...)

krishanna said...

DOH! OWOWOWOWOW! Feel better soon, Attie.

Samantha said...

I finished the Harry Potter books days ago :D Ouch, your nose looks painful!

Big Pissy said...

OUCH!

Hope you're better soon! :)

Grim Reality Girl said...

Yikes! Ouch! ((((Hugs)))))
So sorry. If it makes you feel better I do that kind of stuff too... when in doubt (or pain), sleep it off! All will be better when you sleep away a few days (sleeping helps you avoid pain, avoiding pain is good when it is a short term thing!).

Good luck!

Dorky Dad said...

OOOOOOWWWW! May your eyes and nose heal quickly.

By the way, I've decided to give you an award.

kim said...

girl you have all the luck!

phlegmfatale said...

Damn, girl!

You really need to get past that bug shit! Hope you have a speedy recovery!

Scully's Moulder said...

Ummm, Ouch? I winced as I read. Did you at elast kill the bug?

Ruth Dynamite said...

Youch! Hope you're much healed.
