I slipped on the cement

Yes, you read it right. I decided to go to the corner store and as I was walking up to the entrance, which has a slanted sidewalk for wheelchair access, I slipped on the cement. I landed pretty hard and scraped my right knee, and if that wasn't enough when I tried to catch my balance with my less foot that one slipped too! So now both knees are scraped and bruised and I even managed to scrape the front of my right ankle somehow. Of course there had to be a car full of people right there to witness it, they asked if I was ok but I'm sure they had a good laugh as they drove off. I must have looked like I was drunk and couldn't walk!

I put the fault on my sandals which have no traction left on the bottoms. I normally don't even wear them out but I was just taking a quick trip and didn't bother changing my shoes. Slippers make my feet too hot so I wear the sandals around at home. The bottoms are so slippery that I have even slipped on the carpet a few times! It's obviously time to get myself some new house shoes, these ones have been a favorite for a long time so I will be sad to see them go.

I was planning to get at least a couple more Cool for School posts up today, hoping to have them all up by the 15th but was so tired today. I went to bed around 2, and my toddler woke me up around 4:30. She woke me up by guiding my hand and forcing me to tickle her! It was cute and funny but once she knew I was awake and wasn't able to use my hand to tickle herself anymore she stayed awake for almost an hour playing/messing up the papers on my desk. She finally calmed down and fell back asleep. I had some trouble getting up and sending the kids to school on time...they were almost on time, only about 5 minutes late.

Heading to bed now, will get some reviews up tomorrow!

Oh wow that sucks. But you know, there are always, always witnesses for our most embarassing falls.

OMGOSH...that was a hard fall. I do hope that you feel better after some rest. You so deserve it. Ummmm, I have a pair of old fav shoes like that....I think they will disappear today. ^_^

I know right? It would be nice to have something embarrassing happen without any witnesses for once! My knees are ok today, It really isn't as bad as I made it sound the right knee is the worst of the two though.

Okay here's the witness someone else fall rule: first you make sure they're okay and if so then you laugh your bootie off. If they're not okay you get to work helping them (and then it's not so funny). I have to admit, and I know this is so immature of me, I still laugh every single time when someone falls (not trip but fall to the ground) and I even laugh super hard when I see this on movies too.
