My Humps

What She Wore: Baggy blue jeans; orange shirt that reads, “Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler” (Let the good times roll); brown, slip-on tennis shoes.

What She Ate: Curried chicken salad on wheat bread. Delicious.


Whatever you call it, mine hurts.

Last night I decided to drop my Netflix movie in the mailbox because I often miss the pick-up first thing in the morning. It was a little after eleven and Charlie was showing no signs of being sleepy, so I decided to take him with me. Movie in one hand, Charlie in another, I walked out the front door and slipped on the dewy stairs. I basically just fell onto my butt on the next step, but I used both arms to hug Charlie to me, which meant no breaking my fall. Charlie was scared, but fine. The Netflix movie landed in the garden. My butt, however, is currently hosting a baseball-sized bruise and it hasn’t even been twenty-four hours yet. I’d include picture, but I wouldn’t want to give anyone nightmares.

My internet is acting up right now, so if I’m a little absentee that’s why. I’m pleading with my Hub to check it out, but it probably won’t happen ’til the weekend. I’m also trying to keep up with updating my Flickr daily, but that’s really hard with my current snail-paced connection.

Edited: I’ve got a lot of my computer problems fixed, but I’m still having issues signing into Spaces. It might be something with my anti-virus software. I’m working on it.

    That’s why God gave Mommy big tushies….so they can land on them and save the baby!!

  2. Oh no! A tushie tumble alert! I think your injury requires immediate attention. Activate The Husband.

    Bummer about the bruised rear!

    Yeah, I think a tutor would be a good part time job for you. I thought about doing that or babysitting, too, but all I really wanted to do was typing or some really light accounting so when this came up I really jumped on it!

  4. I did something similar when D was a wee baby, too. I ended up with the nastiest bruise on my butthigh and I can only imagine yours is similar. OUCH!!!

  5. When I started reading this entry and saw that list, I was like, OK, what the heck is this gonna be about?? Lol!

    Hope it gets better soon!

  6. ouch…hope it’s feeling a bit better…i know lot’s about big huge black and purple bruises…got lot’s when i kept dumping my motorycyle…i am very clumsy…

    *~* :o) always remember to be happy… :o) because you never know who is falling in love with your smile… :o) *~*

  7. Damn netflix! Charlie was probably thinking, “geez, Mom, not in front of the neighbors…”

    We had snowy weather last week and I witnessed a girl take a nasty tumble right in the middle of times square. she was ok, just a tad embarrassed.

  8. Oh, no! That sounds terribly painful…I am so glad that Charlie is OK…I hope your tush heals quickly!

  9. Hopefully your rear end heals quickly. At least you didn’t bruise your tailbone. I have heard that can take a considerable amount of time to heal.

    Thanks for coming by and checking on me during my battle with the flu.

    I have often thought of signing up for Netflix, but I have downloaded quite a bit and also watch a tremendous amount of television. One of these days though.
    Take care and thanks again.
