I Fought the Tree and the Tree Won
I had open house planned for last Saturday, but the seller wanted a break and I was happy to take the day off. A day off! I was very excited.
My husband and I were off to do errands, one of which was to buy a new tree saw. I wanted two of our giant Bird of Paradise trees cut down.
Here was the plan:
My husband would cut the tree and I'd guide it to the ground.
Here's what happened:
The tree was heavier than I thought it would be, so when I tried to catch it, it fell on my head and knocked me on my butt.
So the rest of my weekend was spent in bed recovering and trying shake the headache, the earache and the brain fog. It's better today and I expect it to be better tomorrow.
This is one of those rare occasions that a day off was more dangerous than hosting an open house. Who would have thought?!
This won't sour me on taking a day off, though. I'll try it again for sure. Maybe next time with a safety helmet.
