Vacuuming Accident

Would you believe me if I told you I was just assaulted by a household appliance?


Ok, so I'm frantically running around trying to make the house look semi-presentable for when my wife returns tonight, after spending 3 weeks with her sister in Seattle. Dinner was cooked, the dishes and laundry were done, the kids were bathed and up watching a movie. The plan is coming together. Just have to sweep and vacuum.

So I'm jamming through the living room, around couches and end tables, I don't need the living room light on, because our vaccum has it's own headlight. Oh yea almost done, this is easy. Then I guess I got over confident, because the next thing I knew that Kirby was backing right up over my foot.


Then I was like a little kid. I forgot about it for about 45 minutes. Until I sat down here that is. Then once I saw the blood, and maybe a little bruising, suddenly my foot really hurts!

I can't wait to go back to work tomorrow. ;-)



  1. Todd,
    OUCH!! I know that really hurt. But if you're like me, you really don't feel much pain until you see "blood". I'm SURE you felt like a little kid when you saw the blood
    I'm just glad you got dinner cooked, the dishes and laundry done, the kids bathed and up watching a movie. and the plan coming togethe by getting most of the sweeping and vacuuming done.
    Strange how seeing "blood" makes a cut really hurt. But I have a remedy if you haven't already got it taken care of. Call Joey and Jaiden to bring a swab to swab the blood off really and stack the "bandaids" on. I bet they will fix you up and probably put you to bed for awhile, :).
    Feel better my friend,

  2. Thanks ... after a couple of days, it turns out that it's really not that bad. :-)

  3. How about being a little more careful next time? If could have been and could be worse next time. And keep some bandaides hid just in case :).
    Be Careful and stay well.
