This may not mean what you THINK it means!

Lets just say I got "busted" coming down a flight of stairs today at home. I FELL!!

If it weren't so annoying, it woulda been funny. But it IS, and it's NOT (funny).

Luckily, the worst thing I'm dealing with is one very mildly jammed finger, a slightly sore toe, and a big bruise on my left upper thigh. There's gonna be a sore bruise on that upper thigh tomorrow! 0_o

The main culprits were a new pair of house slippers with NO GRIP on their soles (I picked them on the Internet, AND a set of about 12 sort of slippery, wooden stairs that really need some type of runner or tread on EACH STEP.

I must have sat there about a minute, stunned; making certain NOTHING on me was broken, sprained, or in major pain.

I learned a not-so-little little lesson (not to take my concentration for granted), and more than anything, I was and am truly thankful.

Taking time off for real injury would be a very real bummer. And I thank the Universe for this lesson.

    Thanks! I'm fine! I knew that yesterday, even before I stood up from "sitting" on the last step. Mainly, I was shook up.

It was pretty much like a fall I could've taken while skiing. Only nobody else saw! LOL.

Note to Self: NEVER "multitask" while walking down steps. 0_o (I was chatting on phone, dividing my attention.)

I should know better, since we know these steps!

Probably people's feet were shorter when this house was brand-new in the 1930s! Seriously. Seems these particular stairs always feel like they're a half-inch or so too narrow.

IT'S TIME for us to plan to add a "grippy" layer of 'something' over top of each step.

Staying in shape has a lot more benefits than we really think about, or realise!

Thanks, friends!

    Oh my, you know we are women of a certain age, so we must be careful in our everyday life. I hope you feel better and don't get too many bruises. emoticon

  Sorry to hear about your fall. That is the main reason we live on one level. Stairs can be dangerous.
