    It was a little hard to put a ice pack on it at work. Just kidding. LOL I have just been told by my Dr. that I cannot take Ibuprofen. I'm having some problems with my kidneys. Will have more test run after vacation.

    No, if you're having kidney problems, no ibuprofen for you!  Can you take aspirin?

    Sit on the ice pack!

    Yes, aspirin is ok. It really isn't hurting that much, but it is a lovely shade of blue.

    Trying to look on the bright side....  just as well you fell off the little trash can, else you might have peed in it.

     Hope you're feeling better soon!!

    The worst was when my husband called from outside the door "Are you OK?, Do I need to come help you?". No way was I going to let him come in and see me sprawled out on the floor. I'm blaming the whole thing on medicine. I've had a bad case of bronchitis this last week and they gave me a cough syrup with codeine in it. I was have awake and woozy from the medicine. Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking with it. :)

    As an addedum to my bump, a fixed stopped up sink - you should know that when the sink filled up last night, I tried a plunger and made a watery mess. (Not clear water either. Spaghetti sauce). So I entered a mainenance call on line and went to my writing. I cleaned up the water splashes with a magic towel called a SHAM WOW. When finished, I draped the SHAM-WOW over the edge of the sink. 3 hours later I went into the kitchen and the floor was flooded (not clear water - spaghetti sauce). It seems that the level arose a bit, and the SHAM WOW sucked it up and dumped it onto the floor. So I had some clean-up and wound up baling spaghetti sauce water from the sink to the toilet. (Could have used a bucket brigade). So when I say the fix is a bump, I mean it.  ;D

    Ugh.  I feel for you, Ed.  My sink chose the middle of Thanksgiving dinner prep last year to stop up.  Turkey in the oven, four vegetables in varying stages of preparation, gravy still unmade, and I'm rinsing the dishes as I go and suddenly the water isn't going anywhere.  Half an hour before dinnertime and a sink full of dirty water.  Had I not had a then-five-year-old in the kitchen with me, I would have been remembering some choice vocabulary reserved for situations like that.

    Congratulations.  How exciting for you. 
    If you decide to get the Bose headphones, do it as soon as you can and try them out before you leave.  I bought a set of the in-ears a few weeks ago.  I had contemplated them for about two years.   Once I got them out and tried them I did not like them.  I know, go figure, not liking something Bose.  They would not stay in my ears.  They kept falling out.  I ended up returning them.  I'm thinking of trying the Shure headphones.

    Thanks!!  I bought the Bose mobile on-ear headphones.  They're the same as the regular on-ear, but include a microphone (I work from home and need a headset sometimes).  I love them so far.  The earpieces feel like heavenly pillows on my ears!!

    All Right!


    My bump for the day is...hum, let me think...

    My most memoriable bump is a young man I know, Joey, who will be signing his life away in a few days to join the Military.  For the past 2 months he was telling me of his dream on how bad he wanted to join, and today he was accepted in the Army.  He was so surprised that I would be so supportive and listen to him for the past 2 months, he thanked me for being his cheerleader.  This was so sweet and made my day.  I love to help out soldiers.

    Have yourselves a grand evening,

    Sailor

    I am terribly sorry for the real "bumps" - hope everyone is ok now a bit of time later and please take care, no more of those kinda bumps  :-\

    Congrats on your bump Sailor, that is a wonderful one!

    Sorry Ed you had a horrible mess- but you at least did finally get your sink fixed, just not a nice way to have to get it accomplished!

    I just have not had any bumps lately, just same ol' same ol' but sure I'll get a good one soon!

    Got a surprise check in the mail, a $450 property tax refund. While I can think of several fun things to do with it, I think it'll go into savings until we're sure it wasn't a mistake...

    Northern California. Our bank overpaid our property taxes (we think) so it was our money anyway. But still nice to get a surprise check.

    I got bumped today by falling in my backyard while watering plants. My face and knees both hit the ground. My equilibrium has never been very good and lately seems to be worse.  I had not fallen for a long time, but totter around bumping into things like a drunk.

    I think the intention of this thread is a good bump and mine is that I seem to be in good shape.   My bones are made of Rubbermaid.

    Well, that makes four "bumps" in the last 24 hours.  I think this thread is a jinx.  Should we lock it?  Just kidding.

    That's awful, Dori!  Please be careful.  I hate falling :'(, but then who likes it, right?  But Bones of Rubbermaid!  LOL.  I know someone who just goes into fits of ecstasy everytime he's in the Rubbermaid department at WalMart!  Look out for him or he'll be after you! ;)  Take care.  Brendan
