London Bridge is Falling Down

Our new time for church is 9am. Now if you know me, I am not much of an early riser, so 9am is not my favorite time of church. Add on top of that, that Dave had drill this weekend so I had to get everyone ready alone and deal with everyone by myself through sacrament...yeah, I was not happy about it.

Maybe it was my bad attitude. I just might have brought this on myself.

I was rushing yesterday morning, trying to get everyone ready and it felt like EVERYONE WAS WORKING AGAINST ME! I asked Maddie to get her shoes and socks on like five billion times, Bethany even tried to help her find her lost shoe. Maddie has an uncanny ability to do whatever she wants. I say "Maddie go get your shoes on FAST!!!", she hears "Maddie, walk reeeeaaaally slowly and go find some dolls to play with." So I'm trying to get it all done and out on time, I have Kimball in his carseat and I'm walking into the garage to load everybody in, the girls are buckled in and I'm calling to Sam. I have the carseat in front of me, so I can't see where I'm stepping (in nice big heels no less), I take the first step down the garage steps and I had forgotten that there was a soda case sitting there. I step on it and I'm going down. I start falling and its like fast and slow at the same time, I try and put the carseat down next to me, its sort of tilted at a weird angle but Kimball was just fine. My other leg gets caught up underneath me and has been raked across the step. Just scraped the heck out of my shin and I yelped pretty good. I had to just sit there for a couple minutes and take some deep breaths because that FREAKING HURT!! Bethany was so sweet and asked if there was anything she could do to help me. We finally got everything okay and got out to church. What a day! I woke up this morning feeling like my legs had been put through a marathon! So sore and tight and feeling bruised!

Also, this is the second time I've fallen down stairs in two months! What is going on here?!

2 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:

Poor girl. That story is not funny but i laughed the whole way through it becuase I think we (mothers) have all had days like that. I do feel very sorry for you. I hope your legs feel better soon.

Its a female thing. I remember my Mom falling a number of times. I have too. I think its part of loosing your brain from having kids... I insist we loose the part with memory and balance. I am SO sorry though, that totally sucks! Falling one thing, but getting scraped at the same time makes it way worse!
