I can't believe I did it!! I knew it was going to happen..OUCH!! I know, I know, what already...sometimes I swear, I should just walk around pretending like I'm playing pin the tail on the donkey..I mean really?? I think I have BIG DORK written across my forehead in flashing neon lights..

Ok so I'm laughing a bit now, just glad no one but my daughter saw it...but falling UP the stairs..LOL so I skinned a toe on my right foot, have two skinned spots on my left knee, and hurt my hand/wrist. Of course it kinked my neck and my back. I guess it was better than falling down them.

Just thought I'd share....

tongue  You make me laugh.... (sorry... I'm glad you weren't really hurt...really).
 
I don't know how things happen but they always seem to happen to me (and it sounds like you, too! haha). 
 
8 weeks ago - I was carrying "Mount St. Laundry" to the laundry room (I usually make the boys do it....but everyone was gone).  Well, I tripped.... put my hand out to brace my fall -- and broke the radial head of my arm (basically my elbow).  Not fun when you have twins that need hauling around.  But - more than that - my pride was hurt!! tongue
 
(It took about a month to heal but I'm fine now).
 
Anyway, yes, I have the DORK sign on me, too. 
 
Feel better, hon, and be CAREFUL turn

Ouch!! You poor thing. I'm sorry that you fell. That sounds like something I would do too. falling up the stairs. I sure hope you didn't hurt yourself too bad.

I hope you feel better really soon I hope your pain isn't too bad.

You take care and rest up when you can.

love and hugs

Lucky I live in a two story house and if I wear flip flops and try to climb those stairs, I have to be very careful because somehow I always hit the toe of the shoe on the stair and trip up. I guess I am becoming a clutz I don't know. Glad to hear you didn't get banged up any worse than you did.

I have gone down my stairs head first before and let me tell you, I thought each time I was a dead duck. That is one of the main reasons I dislike this house so much. If I can ever get back in a one story home I will be so happy.

Please be careful and take care.
