I keep getting hurt.

OUCH!
I have so many injuries it is ridiculous! I hurt my right forearm the other day when I spent 2+ hours trimming our bushes. My arm knotted up and has been incredibly sore for days. I've been taking ibuprofen around the clock. Last night at my sister's house I was attacked by a hammock swing. Literally. It hurt so bad. It was one of the accidents where you want to jump right up and say "I'm OK! Really!" (Even if you aren't) but I could not get up for a couple minutes. Here is what happened...
I walked out on to Cara & Jason's deck. They got a hammock swing for Christmas but I hadn't sat in it. So I thought it would be a good idea to try it out. BAD IDEA. I got in and a few seconds later I fell to the floor. The screw had been coming loose apparently and it slipped right out of the ceiling. I fell on my butt bone. Then the wood bar and chain came falling down. I have a really sore breast bone and a knot on my head. Several people (all family) were on the deck and saw it happen. I was stunned, laying on the deck crying, with people standing over me looking down. I was so embarrassed! It of COURSE made me feel like it fell out of the ceiling because of my weight or something. I couldn't stop crying because it hurt so bad and I was embarrassed! I went into the bathroom to try and pull myself together. Andy came in a few minutes later and helped me calm down. It was awful. My butt was immediately sore and I put ice on it. Came home and took more ibuprofen and went to bed. I've been really sore today in all 3 places but I've survived! It's really hard to bend down and get back up. Once I was OK again we reminisced about all of my "accidents"...being stabbed in the foot by an ink pen, attacked by a Herbie trash can, almost broken two toes and a knee cap on different occasions by bumping into door frames in my house...etc. I think I'm clumsy.

You can be clumsy just like Bella! I do hope that you feel better soon!

Ok, I am so glad that you weren't seriously hurt, but I have to admit that I am giggling to myself just a little bit at your description of the swing crashing down on you (I can see it just perfectly in my head!). Hope the boys don't take after their mama!!

I am getting old so I am more thinking of how that hurt and did it do anything permanent (I know it didn't, but you see my perspective thoughts)....glad you are up, walking, and getting better day by day....I would say be careful, but how did you know the screw was getting a little loose?
