I am such a klutz

Yesterday, I finally tackled the lawn mowing after a very long time of rain and rain and rain. We have one section that goes out to the street that's at an extremely steep angle and almost impossible to mow with a mower unless you have the upper body strength of...what I thought I had. I stand on the even part and by the time I get the mower up the hill, my arms are just about straight out. Steep.
Long story short, I got the majority of it mowed but when I had the mower at the top, my foot went into a hole, my leg twisted sideways, and the mower started downhill toward me. Not even thinking, I held onto the mower and moved it to my right side away from my body. The mower tipped onto its side and my foot was still stuck in the hole and I wrenched my whole body to the right with pretty much the full weight of the mower.
So much for mowing yesterday. I took some Ibuprofen and decided that my lawn is not worth my life and I quit for the day. I used the weed whacker on the rest of the hill today and finished that section but then I gave up. I hurt.
So I decided that I need some new summer pants since I've cleaned out my closet of all the stuff that no longer fits because it's all too big on me. I proudly went to the size 10's and brought them into the dressing room to try on. None of them fit.
They were all too big! I guess that I skipped size 10 entirely and now wear a size 8. WooHoo! It was rather exciting and just about made up for the fact that I injured myself over some stupid grass.
