I'm 32 going on 82....

Last night, we were outside playing with neighbors' kids and hanging out. Audrey had to go potty (she is going all day at school, not doing as well as home, but I am not pushing her), so I took her into my neighbor's house (and no, not this neighbor's house, but she was there too). On the way back out of the house, I slipped on the top step of her porch and fell on my back on the steps on the way down. Luckily I somehow let go of Audrey's hand or I would have pulled her down with me.

I fell hard enough to knock the wind out of me. And of course Ray was working late, and it was bath night. And yes, Edie did offer to help, but I was okay and made it through bath time which included Ashley dumping an entire cup of water on the floor. Good fun. Needless to say, she learned how to mop.

It wasn't until I got the kids in bed and laid down on my bed to watch Idol that it really hurt. And of course Audrey kept coming out of her room. So from my bed, I pretty much was just telling her to go back to bed when we normally walk her back to her room. Then she started bringing me things from her room; her blankets (one by one), her pillow, a toy. I think she caught on that I was not getting out of bed. Ray came home earlier than he planned and took over around 9:30pm.

I put a menthol patch thing on my back and went to sleep. It actually does feel better this morning, and walking around some has helped. Just don't laugh at me if you see me walking funny.

I'm a Disney fanatic too. I was disappointed with Disneyland though. Disneyworld is definitely the way to go. Nothing beats staying on Disney property and taking that walk down main street!
