    What Was I Thinking?

    When I decided it would be ok for me to try to climb on a chair to look for something on top of the fridge. Needless to say, it did not end up well. I lost my footing just as I was about to get all the way up. I went backwards and landed on the bottom of my back and butt. (thank God for the extra padding I have put on) Of course DH was not here, he had gone to DD's new house to clean out the shed on the property. I hit really hard, so I just layed there for a bit to see what was gonna really start hurting. The damage is: I tore the heck out of my left arm just below my elbow, tore up 4 of my bare toes (skin tears), and my back and hips right at my tail bone are not feeling great.

    I was just trying to get caught up with getting some things shipped that I need to. My SS package being one of them. So never fear my SS gal, I will get them mailed by tomorrow.

      Ditto the Ouch!

      I hate to say it, but whenever I pull one of these stunts, I always hurt more the next day.

      Can you take a long hot bath and soak some soreness out?

          You sound like me... I slipped an fell down the basement stairs today, my heel is hurting crazy, my arm is all bloody from the numerous scraps and cuts on it... my neck is aching, my back, and my fanny feel like I have been kicked with boots!

          I came up, after I could get up, and took IBprophin right away... good thing too, it hasn't kicked in yet, but my shoulder is needing it. Oh my aching body.

          I have so much to do and Martin won't be home for more than 3 hours. Ugh... but at least I know he will cook for me tonight. It will be chili or chili dogs... but I'll eat it. LOL.

          I need to heat up a couple of corn pillows I think! Sorry to hear about your fall. We are a pair... Aaay?

            Ouch! Ouch! I'm glad that you did not break anything. But knowing you are going to be sore for the next several days is not going to pleasant. Hope you heal quickly.

                You need a shorter fridge.

                  Marylin--and Kensington--you two take care of yourselves! You're two of my favorite people, and each of your falls could have ended up MUCH worse.

                    Is there anything you two won't do for sympathy? Let's cut the circus stunts out - you're both too old to be turning cartwheels.

                    Praying for quick healing!!! OUCH just doesn't cover it.

                      Are you crazy??? You should have KNOWN better. Am I going to have to come up there and whoop your butt??? Don't be so stupid!!! And don't tell me not to yell at you because you would be all over me like white on rice and you know it.

                        Aw Marilyn so sorry to hear you hurt yourself. Hope you are ok. Its hard to be laid up this time of year (as I know with this stupid hand) but be careful. We try to hurry too much and end up taking more time. Isn't that a profound thought.

                          So sorry about your accident!! Tomorrow you will wake up feeling okay, but it's the day after that when the pain will get you. Better go to Walgreens and load up on the Ibuprofen. And stay off chairs and stepladders!!!

                            Sounds like Santa needs to bring you a nice sturdy step stool for Christmas and a strong hand rail for Gloria! Be careful!
