Knives and Rollerblading

This past weekend, Phil and I went for a beautiful rollerblading jaunt down by the river. (with doctor's permission of course). I absolutely LOVED the smells of the flowers and plants. It was truly refreshing. We bladed for 6 miles along the river in the evening. I saw butterflies, chipmonks, caterpillars, birds, a snake and lots of bugs. We had a lovely time and unfortunately, I left my camera in the car so I didn't get to take any pictures. Hopefully, next time I'll get some.

On Sunday night Phil was helping me clean out the dishwasher and he emptied the silverware holder of everything except a large kitchen knife. The weight of the knife unbalanced the carrier and the knife flipped out down to the ground...and into Phil's foot. The point of the knife went into the top of his foot between his two biggest toes. Although he didn't feel it actually go in, he looked down and there was lots of blood. We put pressure on the wound and the bleeding stopped. I cleaned up all the blood and then called Phil's mom for advice. Poor Phil! He's having a hard time because wearing shoes hurt his feet. Hopefully it'll heal soon. So, moral of the story, put the sharp knives away first then put away the silverware.

Megan that's terrible! What a random weird thing to happen to your husband! I certainly hope the soreness goes away soon, I can't imagine how that must feel!

That sounds horrible! Yikes! How nice that he was helping put away dishes though - I love that Jeremy helps with those things. Praying he is better soon :)

Sorry to hear about Phil. Rita has a dangerous way of cutting sometime and we have had a few incidents(me too). I guess you could say Phil "got the point" about dishwasher safety! Hope healing comes quickly. By the way Rita went back to work this Monday.

Phil's feeling better and went to work today. He said his foot has almost no pain today! Yeah for him!

Ouch...I'm glad he is doing better though.

Your rollerblading trip sounds like it was fun. What a variety of species to see while getting exercise! ;)

Wow, what a freak accident! Something that would happen to me.

So how's that little bean growing inside you. Feeling better with the anti-nausea medication?

I do have to say I thought you went roller-blading with knives too. I'm glad Phil is feeling better.
