Whoopsie Daisy

I weighed myself before going to bed last night, which is generally a mistake, but it was even more of a mistake than usual as I mis-stepped getting off the scale and landed on my butt in the bathtub with my legs hanging over the edge.

How embarrassing. I thought of calling for help but others were watching a movie downstairs and wouldn't have heard me. I ineffectually flailed my arms and legs like a turtle on its back, until I realized if I moved my legs into the bathtub I would have better luck getting out.

No major injuries, although my left arm is a little sore this morning.

A few more birthdays and you'd be able to say, "Well, I only broke ONE hip." Don't laugh.

Life is just so flippin' HAZARDOUS.

Oh, no! I'm glad you weren't seriously hurt.

Yet another reason to ditch the scale!

I do have to say that falling in the bathtub is always a worry of mine . . . not really a place from which I want to have to be helped up or out.

Darn scale!
I've never fallen into the tub, but I have fallen out of one... several times. You are very brave to blog it!
