Come on man, think!

Have you ever done something and afterwards thought, I should have seen that coming? Well, it was my turn today.
It all started with the kitchen re-do going on at our house. Today I was attempting to hang one last wall cabinet and it wasn't fitting quit right. Well, trying to hold it up on the wall while look to see what the problem was wasn't working, so...I had a good idea, well it seemed so at the time. This idea was to prop the cabinet up with a board underneath then stand back to see what was keeping it from going in all the way. So I put the cabinet up, put the prop in place, on the counter top, (yea you see it coming don't you), once I took my hand off the cabinet it took off like a rocket, right for my head. Now the good Lord has blessed me in many ways, a wonderful family, nice house, good job, but one blessing I did not get was a full cushion of hair. There was nothing between the sharp edge of the open heavy cabinet to stop its fall but my poor bald head. Have you ever seen how much a cut head can bleed? I did once the dizziness wore off.
So, looking back maybe a slippery counter top doesn't make such a good support, and maybe a man my age should have help with heavy jobs. Yea come on man, think!

Good one! It did leave quite a mark - I bet you get a scar from this!

AHHH!!! That looks horrible! I'm glad you're okay though. And glad you started a blog too! And next time Aaron will come hold the cabinet for you while you stand back to look at it - he's good at that job! :)

I'm very glad you are ok- that looks pretty deep! I want you to know that being the loving person I am- I would be happy to hold your hand the next time something like that happens- hee hee!

That looks extremely painful. I hope it heals okay. Otherwise I'm sure Mari would be willing to remove stitches if you needed it.
