I kept thinking that I should have something to say in my return to the blog. I needed to get away from myself for a while - I just started to feel like I wasn't contributing anything, just sinking into navel-gazing and not in a good way.
So, I don't have anything brilliant to say, but I wanted to come back to the blog and I have a stupid little story to tell, so I thought this was as good a time as any.
I was putting clothes in the top loading washing machine. I had to reach in to move a big clump of clothes around to even them out in the drum. Somehow, I hit the lid and it came crashing down onto the bridge of my nose. I literally saw stars for a minute and I thought maybe I had broken my nose. After a few minutes, it was clear that I had not done any permanent damage - I have a minor cut and a headache and some swelling, but it isn't broken, no black eyes or anything. I just feel cotton-headed now.
So, nothing brilliant to say, but I'm back, bumps and all.
