That didn't go well...

So remember yesterday I said I was going tubing? Well, at about 4:00 on one of our last runs, I had an accident. We were "spun" a little too hard when we left the top of the hill, I fell out of the tube, my arm got caught in the rope that runs around it, and I was dragged down the hill behind the tube. Very scary ride! I'm OKAY...nothing is broken or anything. I'm just sore, bruised, and my face is cut and swollen. I look like I got in a bar fight....and lost! Not pretty at all.

So anyhoo, I'm going to take a little blogging break and won't be posting for a few days. Time to rest the old bod.....and no more tubing for me....ever!

Hugs,

dpkennedy said...

Yikes! I am glad you are ok! But you should tell people it WAS a bar fight and the other woman should look so good ;-)

Or else you really were in a bar and you are using the old "tubing with the kids" story as a coverup...

Doris said...

So sorry, but glad your injuries were minor. Reminds me of the time I tried to play field hockey with my daughter and her friends. Got hit in the ankle with the ball (that thing is hard!) and it swelled up like a balloon. Stamping can be dangerous too--I fell over in my chair one day because I leaned back too far to grab something off the shelf! Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Paula Barin said...

So sorry about your tubing accident. Get some rest and relaxation in a nice warm bubble bath. It is great for relieving body aches.

Laura (scrapnextras) said...

Yikes Denise...that sounds awful! Glad to hear you're not hurt badly although it sound pretty rough anyway! Rest up girlie...we'll be waiting with baited breathe for your next masterpiece to appear!

Marisa said...

Oh my!! Hope you recover quickly, Denise. Shame your day ended that way. Hopefully you won't give it up totally - just give yourself some down time and you never know, you may be back up there doing it again some time!

Sandy Knecht said...

Sounds like one ride too many! That's about the time I quit body surfing.

Jill Haddad said...

I FEEL for you. I had a similar experience when I was in college. Everyone was tubing down a very BIG hill behind one of the dormitories and my roommate and I thought it looked liked fun. We trekked up the hill, waited in line to take our place on the tube then began our descent. Half way down we realized that someone had built a snow bump! The inner tube when up and out from under us and we went up and then down with a thud! THAT was the last time I went tubing too!!!!!

Chris Olsen, Glowbug said...

I am so sorry to hear you got hurt. Take Care of yourself!!! Hope you recover quickly!!

kraftyaunt said...

Know that in my head right now I'm stamping a 'get well' card that has an icing-less donut and a tumbling snowball somewhere on the panel:->

Seriously though, I'm glad you're all right and I hope the soreness goes away quickly. Take care of yourself and make it back to blogging in good health.
