Guess What Happened?

I fell. Yep, Thursday afternoon I, for some unknown reason, decided it was the perfect time to do the splits in the hallway. One foot went straight out in front and the other didn't. Then I decided that twisting to avoid the splits would be in order. Boy, was I wrong. Then Bella decided that maybe I needed help in the way of circling me and licking my face. Go ahead and laugh. I know it made a funny picture. In homage to Kath, I used a few choice words on my way down, a couple of prayers when I hit, and a few more choice words when I tried to get up. I hurt myself badly enough that I had to call T-man to leave work and take me to the friendly South Austin ER, where I was given a lovely parting gift in my butt cheek and told there was no need for x-rays, just rest and happy pills. And "what didn't you hurt" is a much shorter list, believe me. When I am a bit more lucid (you have a very small window right here before the pills kick in), I will spend more time in front of the keyboard. For now, I'm going to go put my feet up and go through some instructions and patterns for Tracey. I hope you have a great weekend. With the aid of modern pharmaceuticals, I know I will! HAH!

Song : One foot in front of the other
By : Jules Bass

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door

So, is this your annual...."I've fallen and I can't get up." thing. I'm happy you weren't hurt.

I certainly hope this isn't going to be a regular thing! I usually throw my back out, which I can handle now. But falling doesn't bode well as we get older!

By the way, I had one foot in front of the other. It just kept going!!!! lol!
