Big Girls Don't Cry!

It was a beautiful day.....a soft breeze with the blue sky. I am very busy gathering Christmas gifts. The bead store is in down town Nampa, little cute shops. I looked at every little bead looking for the perfect pink for my Granddaughters charm....said my good-bye to the little shop owner...and hurried out the old glass door. The next thing I knew everything was heading for the ground....down like a rock on the cement was this person, MEEEEEE! All I could think of was.....Did anyone see me! I couldn't see anyone, they could have been hiding behind tree's...Yikes. Getting up was even worse....but I managed to do it knowing I must have looked like a Beetle on it's back!!!! Did I break anything? Nothing but my pride....in my car I tried to figure out how hurt I was...as I drove home the pain started. But I could move, so I will be fine.
As I began to get out of my car, it was clear that I had made a mess of me. I hobbled on one foot up the path to my back door, and realized my knee was bleeding.....I hurt all over. After a pain pill and some TLC from Arney, I thanked God and any support group that would help me, that I would walk again....all is well, but sore as H***! Hobbler!

I feel it. I did that in Toys-r-us one year. I popped up like a crazy person looking to see if anyone saw. I think they did and then ducked out of sight. They knew I didn't want to know they saw.

So sorry to hear you took a tumble, glad it was not any worse than it was. Do you know what made you fall? My neighbor fell and broke 5, yes I said 5 ribs...she is 76 so it has been hard on her
Praying your pain is all gone.
