As any of my family can attest I was extremely clumsy child. For example, when I was 5ish I was “jogging” down the road in my cute little jogging shirt (it said jogging all over it), tripped over my own feet and scraped the tip of my nose. I also had more then my fair share of wipe outs on my bike. Thankfully my coordination improved by leaps and bounds once I became a cheerleader in junior high and my bumps and bruises decreased. But the reason I’m bringing this up is because I seemed to have digressed a bit lately.
Yesterday I while I was mowing the lawn, I was walking backward and not paying attention to where I was going. All of a sudden I felt myself falling and couldn’t stop myself. It was a slooooooow motion fall, too. Thank goodness I landed in the soft flowerbed/garden and didn’t jar my back or land hard on my right side where I received an injection yesterday. I did, however, scrape my leg and elbow. I was outside all alone so I doubt anyone saw me but all I could do is sit there & laugh in between OWs because I could only imagine how comical it looked. I managed to keep the mower upright and still running… which made it even funnier cuz when I landed all I could think of was “I just fell and the good news is I didn’t spill my beer” – even though I didn’t have a beer or any other type of cocktail yesterday.
About an hour later I was walking into the house and tripped over a step – because, you know, they change height all the time – and nailed my knee on the corner of door. All of my bumps and bruises from yesterday are on the left side of my body so its making my coordination that much better today. I can’t tell you how much I don’t want to do anything other then sit at my desk. I’m afraid that the tile floor in the hallway will decide to get a wrinkle & trip me.
