I fell down the stairs at work today. How embarrassing. Thankfully no one saw me and I'm fine, except for a little rugburn on the front of my left leg and a twisted left ankle. The doctor adjusted it for me so it's only a little bit achy tonight.

Hopefully it will be all better by tomorrow because we're going to the zoo! I'm excited about that. I haven't been to the Philly zoo yet. The weather today was beautiful -- nice and cool this morning and even though it got warm later it wasn't too humid. I'm praying that tomorrow will be just as lovely.

My Man worked very hard today, ripping up his parents' deck. He'll go back on Wednesday to help his dad start building the new one. A day off tomorrow will give his blistered hands a chance to recover, since he refuses to wear gloves!

The Boogie spent the whole day at 52. She and I went over in the morning to do some laundry, and she stayed while I went to work. She was kind of ornery today: she poured water on the floor twice and colored on a step! Praise the Lord for washable crayons, right? Her Mom mom caught her coloring and when she reprimanded her the Boogie hung her head and said softly, "I sorry, Mom mom." At least she was repentant, I guess. I have to confess that we all thought it was kind of funny ... eventually.

Today's Boogie-ism: "stucking" used in place of "stuck." "Honey, he'p! I stucking!"

Oh no! I hope your ankle heals quickly. It can be quite embarrassing! One time I tripped UP the stairs going to the choir loft! Try and figure that one out! LOL I made my grand entrance! Thankfully it was only choir practice!

A couple months ago, we had a resident fall down the stairs in the lobby. She went down about 6 or 7 steps. The best part was that we got it all on camera! We must have watched that recording 30times! So, at least no one is reliving your painful memory over and over again!
