Rain + Freezing Weather + Stairs = ICE!

The following story is one of those that was SO not funny at the time, is maybe kind of funny now, and I am sure will be funny tomorrow.

I was going to leave the house early this morning before work to make a quick run by Wal-Mart. This meant that I had to leave by 7am. I got ready in plenty of time, gathered my book bag, purse, lunch and two bills I had to drop in the mail box and headed into the freezing cold.

Since it was 7am it was still somewhat dark outside, and I was in a hurry. Well, as soon as my foot hit the first step heading downstairs from our apartment I quickly realized that it was VERY icy. Well, the rest is history. I feel down the stairs. Every. Single. One. *sigh* SO NOT FUN. I must say that it hurt and beyond it just hurting it scared the living tar out of me!

All is well though and it is ok if you want to laugh. I am almost to the point of laughing although I do have a very sore low back, bum and upper legs. I am sure that I will survive though.

Needless to say, I did not make it to Wal-Mart.

Oh, my word, girl! I'm glad you're okay and that you didn't break anything! Those are some steep stairs!

Ok so in truth I laughed but I am not a bad friend and I do have real concern... are you ok? That is a long way down.

I'm ok - feeling a little bruised but it could have been so way worse! I will have to tell you girls the story in person and you will probably laugh even more. haha

I am glad you are okay! How is the bum? ;)

I can't believe you fell down those stairs and weren't seriously injured. Praise the Lord!!! And, since you are OK, it is kinda funny...but I am more happy that you weren't hurt!

Lid - The bum is ok. My legs actually are pretty sore and there is a spot on me back that feels bruised but nothing too bad. haha.

Beth - I know! I cried when it happen because it hurt pretty bad but I also think that I was in shock and just scared really bad.

I laughed, but only because you are okay. ;) Did you just butt bounce down the stairs or did you like tumble? They should seriously have salt around to make those un-icy. Sorry you're in pain :(

I guess it was kind of a butt bounce. The pressure was more on my back though and I was trying to stop myself so my arms have some bruises.
