So graceful.

Growing up I took dance lessons for 11 years, won competitions. Gymnastics for 6 years, won meets. Karate for 5 years, won tournaments and got my black belt. Was a cheerleader, won competitions. That being said, I'm a KLUTZ! Apparently my gracefulness only extends to difficult things, not normal everyday tasks.

Yesterday I had my kids throw their dirty clothes down the stairs so I could do laundry. On my way down said stair I tripped on the clothes half way down and fell the rest of the way. All day I was on the couch unable to move and in pain. Today I'm still so sore I had to call in sick. I trip over flat surfaces except when I'm wearing 4 inch heels.

What I can't figure out is how I can go from doing cartwheels on a balance beam and jump spin kicks in karate to tripping over flat surfaces.

Today I'll be laying on the couch again bruised from my ass to my shoulder. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.
