My trip!

I bet you're expecting to hear I went somewhere fabulous huh? You're probably so happy for me, thinking, "Gee, it's about time she got a break!" Sound about right? Do read on.....
So, I'm taking Tanner to swim class this morning, looking good, feeling fine. Beautiful CA weather today has allowed me to wear a cutesy lil flowered skirt, tank top and the cutest ever platform sandals. I was carrying Brennen in his carrier in one hand and Tanner's swim bag in the other, just be bopping into the swim school when out of NOWHERE the (totally unmarked) handicap curb jumps up and trips me! Down I went, right on my left knee and hand! Luckily, Brennen was not hurt or even a tiny bit upset by the fact that Mommy set his seat down somewhat harder than normal.... My mom was with me and had the mother of all over-reactions...."OH MY GOSH, DANA! ARE YOU OK??!?!!?!?" So, naturally, everyone is now staring at me, on my hands and knees in the parking lot, trying desperately to make sure all my "should be under my skirt" parts ARE INDEED under my skirt! Just lovely! So, my knee is all skinned up, bloodied and bruised and I feel like a 5 year old who is obviously not ready to walk in Mommy's big girl shoes. Now you know all about my trip. Not as exciting as you had imagined...... And, even more, you know now what a clumsy oaf I am! UGH!
