So that heavy bag is fantastic. That being said, have you ever had a moment when you injured yourself and thought, "Yep, I deserved that." So...here's my story about my moment tonight.
After I finish with the bag, I play with the dogs. It's good for them, and we use the time to train as well. Tonight we played. Well, while I was playing with my dogs, I whipped around to chase Mia and smacked the bag with my hand by accident. Now...when I say smacked, I really mean that I hit it HARD. So hard in fact that it bounced off the back bar of my stand, swung back, and when I went to stop it, it crunched my pinky. Had I not tried to stop it swinging, which I only do out of habit, my finger would probably be fine.
If it had hit any harder, I probably would have dislocated it (or worse). Right now it's nice and swollen and the joint is very, very tight. I can still bend it with only a little pain. Most of the pain is if I touch it or stretch it to use the "enter" button while typing (you know, that sideways stretch).
It should be better in a couple days, I'm sure.
Now, excuse me while I go watch the episode of Malcolm in the Middle where Hal starts playing Jump Jump Dance Party...I miss playing Dance Dance Revolution with my friends...........
Happy stitching, everyone!
P.S. I still haven't finished my son's birth record, sadly.
