With about three months to go, staying healthy is a top priority. It’s definitely hard during the winter months, too, with colds, stomach bugs and the flu running rampant in the office. Yuck.
Since there are things you can do to ward off illness, the Turkeys are doing everything possible to keep from the sick bed. We are drinking lots of water, taking our vitamins, eating well (and at home more than out), getting lots of sleep and exercising several times a week. I also swear by Zicam every time I feel a sniffle or tickle in my throat (yes, it’s likely mind over matter that I end up OK, but whatever).
However, it’s not just health that we’re worried about in the Turkey household. This concern comes with a confession: I am a giant klutz.
I realize that many of us have our moments of clumsiness, but somehow I manage to make it a nearly daily occurrence. Some of my more unfortunate (and recent) examples: cutting my leg open on a bike (when walking with it), breaking my toe on a chair and, in a moment of career brilliance, tripping over a phone wire at work and skinning my knee. That’s the short list.
As you can see, many of these injuries have been minor and generally easy to hide (with more sensible footwear, a band-aid, etc.). Yet, there have been also been more visible injuries in the past that would be fairly obvious in a wedding dress (think exposed arms).
And then there was the injury just before Thanksgiving…

Can you spot it from afar? No? Let me give you a closer look…
