The Walking Wounded

I've been doing a lot of talking to myself lately ("OW! Not again CR.") mainly because I've been doing some, well, let's just say it's my way of doing things, mostly self-inflicted.

You all know about the rugburn on my forehead, but I just want to let you in on some background info. so that you can understand me better. That wasn't the first place that I got a horrible rug burn this past year. Somehow (don't ask me how), I managed to get rug burn on my left foot just below where my big toe is. I was a bit pre-occupied at the time and don't really remember how it took place. Let's just say it was worth it.

I also managed to recently burn myself on my left hip. That burn, actually two, happened because I wanted to wear a skirt and it was wrinkled. Since the iron and ironing board are in my room, there's no reason for me to be wearing anything while I'm ironing my clothes for the day... except for the possibility of brushing the iron up against me.

You might think that it's a mistake most anyone could make, but I've already done it once before. That time I was ironing a shirt and managed to burn a line across my stomach. It was a long time ago, so long ago the burn has already completely faded from my skin unlike the two on my hip.

Now, let's get to this past Friday. Things were hectic. When aren't they right before Shabbos? Anyway, I managed to burn my the top of my left hand where it meets my wrist. I was reaching for the pan of chicken and there you go CR has done it again.

Don't worry I've been staying away from ovens, irons, rugs, and just in case even knives this week. But Shabbos is coming up so wish me luck on Thursday night, and don't worry too much. I'm going to get a new aloe plant tomorrow.

fitness update: I've lost a total of 13 lbs. and have gone down a size very close to two sizes. I've been walking/running for about 35 minutes a day and I'm trying to get up to 10,000 steps a day.

I'm with you on the burning thing - I once burned myself on my knee! My former roommate would panic everytime I was in the kitchen alone, especially when I would say "oops."

Congrats on losing so much weight! That's awesome! I need to know your secret.

As long as you're not burning the house down, you're okay, right?

sorry it took me so long to get back to you guys


I want to know how you burned your knee. It sounds like something that I could've done.

if you say so.

I'll try my best... just not that good at it.


a flat iron sounds scary to me.
