I broke my ankle last week whenever I was trying to clean the air ducts in our house.
I was on a stepladder upstairs whenever I tripped over my own feet and ended up twisted on the ground. I know that it was a dumb move on my part, and I never should have been trying to do it in the first place. I just did not want to have to spend any extra money on heating and cooling company bills at this point. See, a few weeks ago, my heating system went on the blink and I had to pay a fortune to get my furnace repaired professionally. I wasn’t about to pay anymore money to the heating and cooling company, even though I needed to get the air ducts cleaned out in my house. I had been reading about how bad it is for you to have dirty air ducts in your house, and I was determined to get the ductwork cleaned out in my house, along with all of my heating and cooling vents. I thought that I would be able to do it myself, and I probably could have, if I was not so clumsy. I was up on the stepladder upstairs in the hallway, and had just finished unscrewing the vent cover from the heating vent that’s up in the ceiling in the hallway. That’s when I somehow missed a step and tripped over my own feet. I fell off the ladder and twisted my ankle underneath me and I think that’s when it broke. I ended up having to go to the hospital and get it casted. And the worst part of all this is that I still haven’t gotten my ductwork cleaned out in my house!
