Just call me Grace


I thought the sunburn was a pain. I was sooo wrong.

It has calmed to a slight sting. The only sore spot is on my nose and it only hurts when I touch it. Unfortunately, I have allergies which means I rub at my nose a lot. heh

Seriously, the sunburn is the least of my worries in the pain department now. The bruises are more pressing at this time.

Took the kid to see Meet the Robinsons today. Absolutely hilarious movie. Being the hormonal mess that I am, I was bawling by the end of the movie. It has a sweet ending. But the bruises added to the tears.

About 3/4ths of the way through the movie, I had to go tinkle. The kid and I finished off a large Pepsi before the movie was half over. He had already run off to the can and I decided it was my turn. All was fine going down the steep steps and out the hallway. But as soon as I went through the theater door, the shit hit the fan.

Or rather the fat chick hit the floor. hehehe

As some of y'all know, I was in a car accident 13 yrs ago and I've got loads of nerve damage. Well one effect of that nerve damage is that sometimes I can't pick up my right leg very far. Add to that the fact that my foot doesn't always flex well when I pick it up. This leads to my dragging my whole foot or just my toes. So, I trip a lot. I mean a whooooooole lot. heh

I've learned over the years not to put my arms straight out when I fall. I'm a big girl and I really really don't want to break an arm going down on my hands. So, I just raise my hands up and let myself land on my forearms. This still freakin hurts.

So here I sit with skinned and bruised knees and bruised forearms. Even my wrists and ankles hurt. The wrists I understand. My hands prolly hit the ground before my elbows did. The ankles, I don't get. I didn't twist my ankle when I tripped. My toes just dragged and I went down. But both of my ankles are a lil tender. Shit even my back is a lil sore.

You should have seen the teenage girl that was standing near the snack bar when I went down. hehehehehe

I literally came through the door, took a step and went straight down. As soon as I hit, I rolled over and sat right up. The poor attendant asked if I was ok but man she looked shocked. I told her I was fine, I'm just a big ole klutz. I jumped up and went on into the bathroom. Thank God I didn't piss my pants. hehe I managed to make it into the bathroom and did my business. When I came back out, there was a guy standing there with the gal and they both looked at me funny. I broke out laughing and limped my way back into the theater. It is stadium seating, so the climb back up to my seat kind of sucked. hehehe

Ok, I'm gonna go pop some pain pills and knit on my dang shawl. The new clue is supposed to be out today and I'm only halfway done with this one. Man I'm slow. hehehe

I occasionally do things like that, and I don't have nerve damage as an excuse!

Hey, where in Iowa are you? Because I'm about to move to Iowa City, and am looking for a knitting group, especially one with knitbloggers....
