Alright folks, don't get too carried away with that title.....let's keep it clean!
Yesterday was my 31st birthday and to celebrate Jesse took me out to a very nice dinner and bought me the most beautiful necklace, earrings and bracelet......it was breathtakingly beautiful. I was treated like a queen and we dinned, laughed and enjoyed just being out together. When we returned home it was bed time for the kids so we tucked them in and sent them to sleepy land. Jesse came into the office to check his email and I joined him. Feeling so thankful and loved I climbed up in his lap (again keep it clean people...I'm not going there), and snuggled him, hugged him and thanked him for such a wonderful day. As we talked we decided to go and sit out on the porch (on our new patio furniture....yea)! So as I tried to get up this is what happened!
I was in my night gown and feeling very pretty. I was still wearing my necklace, earrings and bracelet and I was trying to be as classy as possible (first mistake). I turned a little to put my feet on the ground but the dog was underneath my feet and in trying to miss the dog I forgot to uncross my ankles. So my feet hit the ground with my ankles crossed and I was half way standing. I felt almost like everything went to slow motion. I began falling over like a tree that has just been cut down....straight down...not bending my knees and with no grace at all. My hands flew up in the air and my body fell on the ground and in the process I hit the papasan chair next to me and sent it flying over and crashing into the wall. So there I was sprawled out in the floor, Jesse laughing so hard that snot is coming out of his nose and all that classiness out the window!
I have to say though...this type of incident has been one of the things that has kept our marriage laughing and healthy. We will celebrate our 10 year anniversary on the 8th of July and I can't count how many times we have snot laughed together!
