And Down She Went

Is this not the ugliest thing you've ever seen?

It's my right leg. After I fell down my brick front porch steps last night. I was taking the dog out and I was being very careful, walking down the steps sideways taking one at a time. Clumsily, I missed the last step and. . .
DOWN
I
WENT!

I twisted my ankle, hurt my wrist and elbow and scraped my leg. The scrapings hurt the most. My leg feels like it's been burned. I can't put all my weight on my ankle, but it's not nearly as bad as it was when I fell down the same steps about three years ago. Ugh. I hate being clumsy.
Although this fall I blame on the bugs.

I had turned the porch light on before I went out and IMMEDIATELY every bug in metro Atlanta flocked to my porch light. I didn't want them trying to fly inside when I opened the door again, so I quick reached in and turned the light off. Hence, the reason for missing the bottom step. Or two. So forget me hating to be clumsy. I hate bugs more. So if everyone agrees, we'll just blame this fall on the bugs. Okay, good. Thanks.

Till tomorrow. LLL.

Dang bugs:) I am so sorry you hurt yourself. When I saw the title it reminded me of the time Ross and your Dad were walking I think thru the woods and your Dad fell. Ross looked at him and I am sure I don't remember it exactly right but your Dad smiled and said "and down he went"! Love you and yell if you need my legs for any reason!

Those steps are very tricky. When I took Bandit out I would step only one at a time, I would always tell him to wait on Granny because I was old and I could not take a fall, Hope you are better real soon. Love you so very much

Bless your heart! I know about the bugs and trying to beat them out the door while they fly at break neck speed in the door! It could have been worse, so thank goodness you didn't break anything.
