I decided this morning I needed to get my Stand out of storage. My hubby made this stand about 10 to 12 years ago. At the time I couldn't afford those stands so he made one with leftover shop wood. I just showed him a picture and he went to work. This is what he came up with.. He even cut out a groove in the top holder thing to hold my Q-snap frames. It works great when I use it... Now I have more reason to use it.....
I went to get the stand out of the storage shed over at daughter's house. After visiting with her.. walked out on the porch to go around to the back steps.. Took that first step.... WHOOSH --- That is all I heard before I felt the steps with my butt, back, and neck... Of course I was trying to hang on for dear life to the banisters! After bouncing down four steps I finely came to a complete stop... on my back. I got up adjusted my jacket and walked on to the shed.... Came back into house and told Raeanne what had happen.. She told me she heard a noise... duh!!! She is used to me falling down the steps.. We used to live there.. This was not the first time.. It hurt more this time.. Last time I was on my way out to work... All dressed up in a skirt and nice sweater. Had on my gorgeous black slick bottom boots.. (slick bottom boots are killer ladies!) I was looking Good!! lol I took that first step and whoosh---- out into the gravel and landed in a pile of Dog Crap! lol My family still laugh about that one... So you see I am a pro at falling down steps.. I may apply to the Professional School For Stunt Women... This happened about 3 hours ago.. I have a stiff neck, middle of back across my shoulders, and top of butt checks are hurting. oh yeah... Left leg in three places is bruised not to mention inside of left wrist has a bad scrape.
After the fall I decided a trip to the Dairy Queen was in order.. Josh and Zoe wanted ice cream and I wanted the grilled chicken sandwich. Yes... I caved and eat the white bun.. I will just do better tonight..
Right now my shoulders and neck is hurting.. I can at least use my stand to stitch. Do two handed stitching for awhile.
Aunt Judy... I did say a prayer this morning to the Lord to help me with the cravings and eating... He listened, I know! I just forgot to ask him to watch over me and keep me safe.... My prayer will be longer tonight.
