O.M.G.

People, I fell today... like something out of a cartoon or maybe a drunken hobo from some slapstick 3 Stooges era film... I parked my car, tripped over the curb slipped on the damp grass, fell over the next curb and landed - SPLAT - in the middle of the school parking lot.

In front of a hundred or so kids and parents and teachers.

And it hurt so much.

And now both my knees are scraped, but my right one is swollen and extra pretty and my elbow is all raw and my left toe feels maybe broken and my right thigh hurts from god only knows and oh yes, my palms are a mess.

It's like a physical manifestation of emotional turmoil.

But, that's a post for another day.

In other news, when I haven't been eating shit, I have been in Sacramento where I panned for gold, toured the Capitol building and explored 2 hard pick mines with Jack and the rest of his 4th grade class.

I've also been in Portland, Oregon and, Well Done, Portland!  That's a nice little city you've got for yourselves there.

And now I am home, and I little cranky about my 38 year old sore as fuck body.

Poor Kristin! Hope everything heals quickly and that nothing's actually broken. Take something before you go to bed tonight cuz tomorrow morning you're likely be to super-ass sore!

I totally feel your pain, as I've done the same thing TWICE in the past six months. Ouch.

OMG is right!

Take your Motrin and don't worry, we all fall sometimes.

Feel better. Falling sucks

Amy Y said...

Oh no!! :( Poor Mama! Hope you and your ego feel better soon...

Joannah said...

Ouch! Be careful out there!

Michelle said...

Oh no! I hope you're O.K. I am a TOTAL klutz. I fell in a hole on the playground(WTF?) at the end of the year field day and the entire school saw me crying and being wheeled away in a wheelchair. Nice.

Oh, Kristin! We are so much a like! I'm sorry...

jennie said...

my husband first noticed me when I tripped over nothing walking down a hallway. that kind of stuff happens to me all the TIME. But, I haven't had a good ol' scrape yourself up kind of fall in quite awhile. but now that I said that, I may as well pick up more band aids because it will happen momentarily.

hope you heal quickly.

Jodi said...

Okay, first off, I feel your pain for real. and i am sorry about your fall. I fell TWICE this winter at work and it was so humilating and extremely painful. Makes you feel like such a graceful lady, huh?

And second, i HEART Portland. It is such a pretty city. And has really good shopping, no?

carrie said...

How come falling down was so much easier when we were little kids?

Shelley said...

Oh dear. Let me know what you need. You'll be in pain for a few days. Ouch!

Love Sacto. Used to live there. Would love to be there again.

Mel said...

Hey, you WHAT? You were IN MY TOWN and didn't try to say hi?

::sulk::

Hope you aren't too terribly damaged... be nice to that body! You only get one!

;)

Joe said...

So erm...how often do you eat shit anyway?

Sorry to hear about the fall. Hope you're feeling better.

I'll be in SoCal next weekend. Make sure to welcome me with expensive and tasteful gifts...

dgm said...

I hope you heal up just fine. My daughter did the Sacto trip last year and it was a complete whirlwind. It was blistering hot, they ran from place to place all day without water or snacks, and she threw up on the plane. Wheeee!

Ninotchka said...

You poor sweetie! Sending you lots of love & healing thoughts. :::hugs:::

furiousBall said...

ouch, you shouldn't do that for future reference

Phoenix said...

That sounds painful. When kids do it, they bounce back so quickly. Not so easy after you hit 12 or something.

lizriz said...

Ouch! Hope you mend up soon.

Mr. Fabulous said...

You haven't been eating shit?

Rarely does someone feel the need to let folks know that they are not consuming feces.

Good for you, though!

lildb said...

wait a cotton pickin' minute, here, miss thang - you were in MY TOWN and you didn't even bother to drop me a line as to your presence?

shocked.

also, isn't it groovy here?

yay Portland! glad you liked it. it likes you, too. in fact, it just told me to tell you it thinks you're kind of hot for someone who has some elbow scrapes and whatnot.

(but I refuse to tell you what else it said, and for the record, I told Portland it should be ashamed of itself. if you want me to give it a slap, I will.)

Kristin said...

Mel & Debbie,

I didn't know you were in Portland! I am SO BUMMED because I would have loved to have met you... damn, now I am all annoyed with myself!

Kristie said...

Dang you were in my hood. I hope you guys had a blast panning for gold and touring the capitol.

Sorry to here you are a klutz ~lmao~ I think it comes with age.. cuz I was racing Bianca the other day... and totally ate it... I skinned my knee, shoulder - yeah I managed to do a somersault on the asphalt.. and Bianca kept running...

to be eleven again

Kristin said...

Kristie - I missed you too! It was such a gorgeous day up there... I love Sacramento when the weather is nice... and complain my a** off when it's hot! ;-)

Anne Marie said...

oh CRAP! This totally sucks. I hope you are feeling better soon and that your toe is not broken. Crap.

Manager Mom said...

Falling itself aint so bad, outside of the pain.

It's when people witness it, that sucks.

When a tree falls in the forest, does it feel embarassment?

mysecondjournal said...

CUTE blog!! I read the highlight over at The Jason Show and had to see who was as graceful as me :-)
Damn Tuttin that shit hurts..hurts like a mo fo the older you get too. You need to soak..take drugs..drink if you are into that..have people wait on you hand and foot for at least a week...

Question is though, did you bruise your ego too? I usually fall in front of strangers.

Becky said...
