I added some wrap-around steps to our deck this weekend. Took all day both Sat & Sun. Finishing up last evening, about 7:30, I had a pile of treated wood shorts under my arm. Just too big to toss, and too small to really use, but if I toss 'em, I know I'll need 'em next week....
So I was going to my pile of wood too good to throw out, when I slipped on the loose gravel slope. Landed left ribs first, right on that pile I was carrying. I am a hurting unit. Don't think I broke anything - no problem breathing or sitting still, but watch out for moving and sneezing.
When I first hit the ground, it knocked the wind out of me. Couldn't breathe at all. Thought I was gonna die. But then, I didn't.
So now, in addition to tool safety, I have to be careful about cleaning up too. Sheesh!.
