So, I do my usual get up to go to the bathroom. Someone left wet towels on the landing half-way down the stairs. I decided, "I will pick these up so that no one trips on them." Then I thought, "I wonder if these towels have taken the finish off of the stairs. I mean, they seem really shiny and beautiful still. They feel okay under my WOUCh-oooooooooooh-THUD!" I am not quite sure how it happened, but I ended up going down the bottom two stairs on the tops of my feet. Both of my big toes were throbbing. Hubby came running down the stairs to find me in a heap. The dog was barking not quite sure what was happening. I was in a lot of pain.
There seems to be no sprains or breaks, just some bruising of my feet, knees and ego (all of them). When hubby asked me if I wanted any ibuprofen, I had him bring me ONE! I remembered to take my meds this morning. I will try to exercise, but my ankles, feet, toes really hurt. I'm not going to give up, though!
