Did you guys miss me?

I had the most random thing happen to me on Tuesday afternoon. I was talking to some OOT visitors and telling them some local spots for a bite to eat. I was leaning against the opening of the elevator talking to them and all of a sudden the elevator door was closing on my hand! I was able to pull it out and I actually did not cry. They were corporate folks and I did not want embarrass myself by crying although I think they would have understood. It swelled up like a balloon so I decided to have it checked out. I went to the Occupation Health clinic and they had me get x-rays and all. I was excused from work for Wednesday and Thursday and I am back at the office today. It is still hurting but it should get better soon resting and icing it.

In other news, I am a dumb ass. This has been verified by my lovely coworker and friend, Lori. I got a call from Dave last night. He said they are releasing him today and they will NOT be sending him to a rehab facility. He does not have insurance so they won’t accommodate him anywhere. Sooo… guess where he will be staying for the next 10 days??? You guessed it!!! I am a sucker and I know it. I was just beginning to be able to breathe again and then he called and burst my bubble. His stitches will be removed on Monday, June 4th and then he will be leaving to stay with a lady friend in Redding named Jody. She is going to drive down and pick him up and then take him up to her place to let him recuperate at her place.

He is not going to be able to sleep on my bed (too high) and I don’t want him to be camped out on my new couch either so I am going to get an Aerobed. I have always wanted one and can use it to go camping so it’s not a waste. I may even have Dave split the cost with me as they run about $50-$100. I want a Queen sized one.

Since my week got all screwed up, I am going to extend the giveaway until next Tuesday which is May 29th. I will announce 2 winners instead of just one.

No big plans for the weekend. I think I will just take it easy. The weather is going to be really weird. They are predicting thunder and rain yet its 75-80 degrees. That is typical for you Midwesterners but not for California. Bizarro… Hope you enjoy your weekend! Until next time…



  1. Oh no Katie!! :( I hope you feel better chick.

  2. Man oh man....I saw that you had done that on facebook. Glad your feeling better. How are you suppose to take care of Dave if your hand is hurting?? Do what's best for you my Friend. Have a good weekend :)

  3. Girl, that is the most random injury! I guess between you and Dave, you make an entire "well" person, but geez. Sorry the rehab plans didn't work out - hope this next week doesn't stress you too much.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
