In the last 10 days I have fallen THREE times!
"hi my name is Tauna and I flunked charm school."
Fall #1: After work, outside of the Emergency Room.
I go to work at 6:00 AM and leave at 6:30 PM.
We had a day of freezing frigid weather.
Ice had formed on every verticle and horizontal surface.
The kind of ice that needs a jackhammer to get off the windshield.
Two steps on that stuff and I was down.
Just like in the cartoons...feet flying!
Other than my very-much-there-der·ri·ère hurting,
I was fine.
The cement steps in my back yard.
I thought I had good footing.
I was wrong!
Once again I was the Cartoon Network.
This time landed on my elbow.
The Grand Finale!
Falling in church.
Not outside either!
I was going down stairs to an empty classroom.
It was crowded.
I thought I was on the last step.
But I wasn't
It wasn't pretty.
Did I mention I was in a church?
In the process I re-bruised my elbow.
Hurt both wrists.
Skinned my knees,
and sprained my ankle.
Oh my CANKLE!
Can I hear an "Amazing Grace" right now?
My body is like HDTV right now.
Vivid colors of black and blue.
I know all of these will heal...
...except my PRIDE!
Winter, I am so over you!
Now for the update!
There is a knock on my front door.
I'm thinking "hmmmmm, some cute college boy wants me to buy a security system."
He introduces himself as Emerson.
He's holding pink bubble wrap.
He says "my mom is Saime and she says you've been falling a lot and you need this!"
It was all I could do to NOT squeal! I'm sure I would have freaked him out.
He's a student here at BYU-I.
We visited for a minute and I sent him on his way with a little chocolate!
Thank you Emerson and Saimi! You made my day!
I'm going to have to take a picture of me with my elbows, rear and ankles wrapped in this stuff!
I'm kicking myself cuz I didn't get a picture of him holding the bubble wrap so you could see how totally cute he was!
