I hate it when old people fall

I was at Brent's soccer game today. It was pouring rain and I was running with Ellie to the car and I thought that I could take a chain barrier like a hurdler but my foot got caught on the chain and I went tumbling. I tried to catch myself but fell flat on my face and then, in dramatic fashion, went on my back with all fours in the air. Mind you it's pouring rain.

It took two very kind men to help me up and one grabbed my car key and umbrella that went flying. It was very nice of them. They kept asking if I was o.k. and I just said I'm wet and embarrassed. After Ellie's initial shocked look, she could not stop laughing. It didn't hurt really until now, when I looked at my knee and my head is aching.

It's funny to fall as an adult. I'm sure I looked graceful but it really does hurt and then you are not quite sure how to get up. I was hoping that nobody saw, but it was a parking lot full of players/parents and spectators.

Fun times.

that sucks...i'm glad you survived the fall.
i was playing basketball with the teens at church when i was home and i totally wiped out on a slick spot on the floor. it was really embarrassing. and being that i came the closest i've ever come to doing the splits (which mind you, is not very close) it kind of hurt!

About Me

I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.
