I'm such a clutz

I have always been clumsy. Always. I always trip, sometimes on my own feet, I'm always spilling or dropping something, and I have a tendency to cut myself when I use knives. My whole family tends to take knives away from me when they see me with one, and my husband swears I need to use a bib when I eat.

I've been pretty lucky in the last year or so and haven't even had any major oops moments. Can't remember the last time I fell, and I thinks it's been about a year since I last cut myself. I haven't even spilled much food om myself.

That all changed last week. All of a sudden I've been spilling and dropping food at every meal. I've been knocking stuff over, and today I did a good one.  I dropped my kindle in the tub.

I am one of those that loves to soak in a nice hot bath. If I have a good book to read, it makes the bath even better. I have had a kindle for 3 or 4 years, with the newest one almost a year old. I've never had an issue reading in the tub because I keep it in a case with a strap across the back to stick my hand through.
Well, today I had just started my bath and set the kindle on the side of the tub. Stupid, I know. You see it coming all ready don't you.

I somehow bumped my beloved kindle and sent it straight into the water. I immediately scooped it out while saying a few choice words, and dried it off the best I could. I hurried to finish my bath because I couldn't relax knowing my prized possession had been harmed.

It's been a few hours since the dreaded accident and there is still water coming out of the bottom where the power button is.  Right now G has it sitting in a bag full of rice to try and help it dry out. Anyone that know me know this kindle has been an extension of my arm since I got it. My kindle has been an integral part of my mission to read 100 books this year.

At least we purchased a protection plan that will replace it if it doesn't work once it's dry, but that's just too long for me to be without it. There's nothing I can do, though. It's my fault and I'll just have to deal with it.

Everything will be alright.
