Well girls, I followed Meganne though not as bad! I caught my slipper on the edge of the living room rug in a rush to catch the phone and ended up face down on the floor! Rug burn through jeans on one knee, a nice bruise on the other, hurt my elbow, hit my head on the floor (BIG ouch!!), bent up my favorite glasses and rug burn on the side of my face above and below the eye where my glasses weren't! Thank God I didn't shatter my hips or ribs in the fall cause that is a real chance I take if I fall. Hubby was outside finishing the trash and heard a thud as I hit the floor but didn't hear me yell out in pain but was concerned when he came in and I told him I fell. My Mom was on the phone and blamed herself for calling at that moment! She cried cause of it but I told her that it wasn't her fault, she didn't know I wasn't sitting in my chair by the phone at that moment or that I was rushing to catch the phone instead of letting it ring like I should have. I will be sore tomorrow and have to go get my glasses fixed and get hubby new ones too. His were scratched but then turned up missing a few days ago. Life! NOBODY else fall!!!!!!!!!

Oh ! sweetie! so sorry. Glad nothing is broken other than the glasses. For this very reason, I am trying to stop going bare foot in the house. A few monts back I fell when i caught my big toe in a plastic bag that I had purchased fabric in and carelessly set it on the floor where I cut my things out .If i had my shoes on this would have never happened. Hope you were wearing shoes. Kay

My fall was caused by the slippers I was wearing, they went directly into the trash! I am feeling OK now.

Hope you are feeling better. STOP the running, nothing is that important esp. as we get older. Rather miss something then it be the last thing we do. You are in my prayers & please be careful. Arlene

Oh sweetie just read this today. Do you know this wonderful little box called answering machine? Anna is sometimes running up the stairs like crazy with the ringing phone in her hand and I just look at her and tell her that I'm not on the run and they can leave a message if it is important. If I'm in the smallest room of the house I would never go on the phone! Poor mum that she was life with you during your accident after her heartproblems. Hope she stayed calm.
Like Sarah wrote: You ladies must take more water with your drinks!!!! :o)
Hope John is spoiling you and push you back in your chair whenever the phone rings!
Hugs to you my dear and a quick recovery

Cute joke. John is not taking care of me, not taking care of himself either but my leg is just killing me, think it is sciatica and I am going to try and get acupuncture on Monday for it. Other than that I am OK, for now! LOL! My Mom is doing great, no problems left over from the mini stroke. Thanks sweetie. I won't run for the phone again!

Now, ladies, aren't we a bit too old for Rug Rash? Be careful and don't let that phone, or the doorbell control you. Hope you feel better soon!

OH DEBRA, you should know I'm not a good role model to follow! I guess, since we are both sore and sorry now we should have that drink to ease our aches and pains.
Definitely a Scotch & Pepsi for me.
I do hope you heal quickly and well dear friend. hugs n love, Meg

The bruises are just starting to show now, 4 full days later. They start at my left hip, down the outside of my thigh, all around my left kneecap and right down the shin of my left leg. Also around the right kneecap and along the top of both feet. I never do a job by halves. LOL!!!

I do hope that you are otherwise OK>

I told my Mom she had no way of knowing I would fall trying to get to the phone, it wasn't her fault. I am good today, some extra bruises that aren't that bad. I thank everyone for caring!

Rug burns are so uncomfortable. My mom tripped on her rug and the next day we were told to remove it. Many years ago I was crouched down when the phone rang and when I come up heard the bones break in my foot. Cast up to my knee and haven't ran for the phone since. Hope you feel better tomorrow.

Now that is an ouch! I have a friend that keeps breaking bones, even walking will do it to her! I am OK. Cost $15 for new frames for my glasses cause I had a protection plan, thankfully, I love these blue frames!

Oh, dear. I'm glad that everything is manageable - no broken bones or such. It's a bit of a metaphor isn't it? Life is about falling down and getting back up again. Hugs to you! ;)

leenova54 by leenova54 12 Sep 2012

No broken bones and my glasses got new frames exactly like the ones I had cause I love those frames, only cost $15 cause I bought a year replacement fee and am glad I did! And yes, it is a good metaphor!

Take care of yourself, you don't need more pain. Remember to let the phone ring until you are ready to pick it up. They will call again if you are unable to answer the phone. Best wishes for a prompt recovery!

Hugs, Lidia

Not too bad, a few bruises more than I thought I'd have. Not much pain from it.
