I am officially too stupid to walk.

I went to get the mail today. It is less than a hundred paces from the front door to the mailbox across the street. Halfway there, I twisted my ankle and fell. Again.

This is the third time in the last two months that I have done this.

My back is currently so screwed up that I spend most of my day laying flat or standing because I save all my 'sitting time' for work. It just kills me to sit up. Dowlan has taken over the cleaning because all I can really do is empty the top rack of the dishwasher and wipe counters off.

I can't pick Charlie up.

And now, I have a scraped knee and elbow, a sore neck and shoulder and a stiff ankle to add to my list of woes.

*air HUGS* I'm sorry Gretchen. I wish I could help. I can try Eva's Cinderella wand, but I think we might need stronger batteries...

Oh no! So sorry! I'd offer to help but you saw how I keep house yesterday so I probably wouldn't be much help anyway.

I'm also in the "too stupid to walk" club. I've fallen twice today. No injuries from the first fall. But the second fall resulted in 6 broken eggs, egg mess all over my shirt and hand, and a large scrape on my knee.

So sorry to hear that! If it helps, I just wiped out on the ice in front of my daughter's school and wound up flat on my back amidst a circle of onlookers. It was spectacular.
