Sigh. After yesterday’s really long work day (7 a.m. – 8 p.m.), I was tired and sort of out of it this morning — got the kids off to school, knew I was tired, but it’s been so hot, the garden is desperate for water, so I motivated to go outside and at least get the sprinklers going — which was a mistake.
I missed a step going down the porch stairs and face-planted hard onto my concrete path. Loose front teeth, fat lip, scraped up knees and hands. Was really light-headed coming back into the house, so took some Advil and taking it easy on the couch the rest of the day.
Hoping the teeth settle in and I don’t need dentistry. Anand did this to me once when he was a baby (slammed his very hard skull into my face), and I researched and teeth often just settle back in as the gum heals. They did that time, so fingers crossed.
Guess the universe is telling me to rest today. I kind of knew I needed to. Should have listened. Can’t really chew yet, so I guess I get to have a strawberry smoothie for lunch…
