Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

Falling Hard

No, I haven't fallen in love or fallen for a scam. I just fell. And man does it hurt!

I was going out to my mommyvan for something this morning and slipped on the ice. Which might not have been so bad, except that I on the top step of our porch steps at the time. Our concrete porch steps. First my (ginormous) butt hit, then my upper back, then all of me slid down the steps, scraping my back all the way. Since I was just popping out to my car for something, I didn't have a coat on or anything, just a t-shirt and jeans (I had been cooking breakfast and I don't dress for church until right before we go.) I had my right hand on the handrail as I stepped down, but clearly that wasn't enough.

O. M. G. the pain! Spousehole heard me yell as I fell, but when he didn't hear anything after that he figured it everything was okay. In fact, I was yelling for him, but since I was facing away from the house and it was windy is it likely that he couldn't hear me. He then heard the small yelp I made as I finally pulled myself up and started back toward the house. He opened the door as I got to the top of the steps and helped me into the house.

He was actually really good about me not wanting to go to church. Can you imagine trying to sit on a wooden pew for an hour+ after that? No. Thank. You. The bruising starts at my butt (the worst of it, really) and proceeds up my back to my shoulder blades. Even sitting in/on a padded and upholstered chair is painful. I've spent most of the day standing or laying on my stomach on my bed. Not fun.

At least I didn't break anything or hit my head too hard. It could have been much, much worse. Enough with the "poor me" crap. Go read something fun somewhere! Or enjoy this video:

Good lord woman, where's a video cam when you need one! You poor thing. Sorry to hear about your fall. It might make you feel better if you posted pics of the bruises so we can all feel even worse for you.

Sorry you fell, I hope you are ok. Ya know, I take xrays, if I lived closer I'd snap a few and make sure you didn't break anything. Watch that bruising...take it easy my sweet.

Oh dang, I hate to hear that. Take it easy and get yourself better.

Ouch... sorry for the pain.

Sue said...

Damn. Take some pain meds before bed, you are going to be hurting big time tomorrow. It's always worst the day after.

*gentle hugs*

I guess it's a little late to say be careful ... you have probably had the rain/freezing rain that we got after it left you.

Isn't it a shock when you realize your legs are going one way and your body another and there is not a damn thing you can do about it ... except cry when it's over.

Get better.

Ouch.... Orange Juice is the ol' Southern medicine man/ LifeGuard treatement to reduce bruising...

Hope you are feeling better soon!

Man, this must be Ice Week in Michigan, or something. Molly slipped on the ice last week, too. She didn't go down, but she managed to bend her foot at an unnatural angle, and she's now the possessor of a swollen and bruised foot, a limp and a good deal less ibuprofen than she had before. . .

Hope you're on the mend quickly. . .

That's one hell of a bruise it sounds like! I hope you're okay. Glad Spousehole wasn't so spouseholish about it.

Take it easy girl!
