Six-word Saturday


Slipped on stairs. Oh, my back!
 
I fell last night after putting my kids to bed. I'm not sure what happened. One minute I was walking down the stairs, and the next I was sitting on the floor at the bottom. I must have hit my back along the way because when I finally managed to stand up, did it ever hurt! I'm feeling a little better this morning, but I think my sore back will be a souvenir of my clumsiness for at least a few more days.

I'm very graceful, you know.  ;-)

Wishing you a happy weekend!

  1. Ouch! Sure hope you are feeling better soon. I dropped a case of copy paper on my foot at work yesterday. I'm very graceful too ;)

  2. I wish I could blame falls. My back goes into (major) spasm for no apparent reason 2-3 times a year, pretty much lays me out a week at a time.

    Feel better soon!

  4. I once fell through (through!) my deck while I was finishing it. Luckily, I didn't break anything (I should have) so it looked more like a Road Runner cartoon than anything else.

    1. Ouch—although I admit that the Road Runner part made me laugh!

      Glad you were okay.

  14. I cannot tell you how many times I have done that! that is the reason I will not ever live in a two story house again (after I move out of this one )

    1. Living in a one-story house seems like a really good idea right now!

  15. Ouch!! Take some Tylenol or Advil and try to be easy on yourself for the next few days (yeah, right, with 2 young ones :)

    hope you feel better soon!

    1. Thanks, Betty. I think the kids must have sensed that I was hurting because they were careful with my back for the most part.

  16. That sounds scary and painful! Steps and I are enemies, my knees don't like them at all. A fall like you took can leave you so painfully bruised. Thankful that nothing was broken. Sending healing thoughts your way!

    1. I appreciate the healing thoughts. :) It was such a weird thing: one minute I was walking, and the next I was falling. I still can't figure out how I did it.

  20. Oh, no! I hate falling! I hope you heal quickly and completely! Hug.

  21. Hope you get better very soon. Do try and take it carefully (not an easy task with young ones about) and perhaps a wheaty bag on the sore area or pain killers if it's too bad.

    1. Thanks for the advice, friend. I have a rice sock that I used when I hurt myself another time. Maybe I'll try that.

  22. I did something similar last weekend. I soaked in a tub of epsom salts and that really helped the muscles from being to sore. I hope you are better soon!

    1. Thanks. I think I see a tub of epsom salt in my future! :)

  23. The best thing about writing is that everything's grist for the mill. Including falling down the stairs! Feel better...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ouch! That must have hurt indeed!!
    We don't have stairs in our current house (not inside the house that is) so that helps a lot but I do remember the days that my clumsiness and stairs weren't a good combination ;)
    Pay attention to your body though, if it remains painful have it checked, your back is so important!

    1. It's Sunday morning now, and I'm still sore, although less so. If I'm not back to normal in a few days, I'll see a doctor. Thanks for the advice!

  25. Oh geez! That is a bit terrifying! Cringing now and maybe for the rest of the day...
    I hope you feel better soon!!

  26. Oh my! I do hope your back is better by now, Dana! I have done the stair slide a time or two myself. Mostly, I just feel ridiculous when I find myself sitting at the bottom of the stairs.

  29. Hope you're not too sore. My cat likes to play around on the stairs - there are plenty of times when the choice has been jump, fall or stand on cat :-(
