Wanted: Coordination Classes

Do I look like someone with poise?

Folks, something is going on with me lately.

I don’t know whether I’m getting older (oh wait, I am, every second) 
or just have lost control of my body as a whole.
I’m losing coordination skills by the minute.

I didn’t tell you this (cause silly, I was embarrassed),
but at my parents house last week, I fell down the stairs.

I landed smack dab on my tailbone on the edge of the hardwood stair.

Then I just sat in a ball (child’s pose, if you will) on the floor for 10 minutes while laugh-crying and could not stand up. It hurt so bad. I also bruised both elbows pretty severely.
With that behind me, I’ve been trying to gain a little poise.
I’ve also avoided sitting down cause my tush still kills.

So this weekend, I’m walking in a crowded parking lot. I mean HUGE groups of people headed to a sporting event kind of crowded. I wasn’t going to said sporting event so I had Archie McHyperpants with me, losing his shit over every person he saw. What can I say, he loves people. He also is going straight back for intermediate obedience classes after this.

So as we walk down the sidewalk in front of and behind a huge group of people, 
one minute I’m up, the next I’m down.
And not like on my knees down. Like, ripped my bag, scraped up my hands, bruised my knees, down.
I was so down that I basically looked like I was planking.
I planked the pavement with my face.
Remember when planking was a thing?

Well this nice older couple helped with Archie and helped me up.
As I bled all down my hand, I carried my 45 pound dog back to the car. 

You may as well know, I’m squeemish about blood.
Those surgery scenes in Grey’s Anatomy? I look away.
So this huge flap of skin hanging off my hand is not my favorite thing.

Thankfully, my parents live near by and my stepmom was willing to leave a pedicure (seriously, now that’s love) to come bandage me up. And now, since I don’t ever want to look at it again and I don’t have enough first aid supplies, I’m going to leave this yucky bandage on for a while longer. 

So you know those people who are awkward and clumsy and it’s kind of endearing? I’m not one of those. Just know that if we knew each other IRL (blogger speak for in real life), I’d probably trip, run into something, or generally embarrass myself within minutes of meeting you.

Here’s what I wore today:

So that’s how my weekend went. It also included:

Friday night solo. Missing Nav. Hanging with my fam. Belated Birthday dinner. Daylight savings. 14 hour work event. Nav got home. Presents! Unexpected presents! Sleep. Lots of sleep.


  • I love your blog! I found you on the blog hop, care to follow one another? 🙂

    You can find me here: petitechronicles.blogspot.com

  • Your outfit is so cute! I hope your hand is ok… I’ve found since I got pregnant I can’t hold onto anything and it’s so frustrating!! I keep dropping things all over the house and knocking things down. At the grocery store yesterday I almost knocked over a pile of cataloupes and a pile of oranges on two separate occasions!!

  • You look gorgeous, as usual! I really love that outfit. And I simultaneously giggled and felt sad about the fact that you fell in front of so many people. Did you just trip or did Archie pull you down? Just blame it on him! : ) I’m glad you are ok!

  • Love this outfit…I’ve been trying to make my maxis work in winter and keep failing! Hope your hand feels better 🙂

  • I am quite vertically challenged myself. But ouch! That stair fall sounds painful. I love your outfit!

    Found you through Sami’s Shenanigans.

  • I just love that outfit!! Looking cute!

  • Well you look great so falling or not who cares! 🙂 I fell down the stairs twice and broke my ankle one of the times and tore ligaments really bad the other time. So I’m right there w/ ya on the falling stuff. Just blame the dog!

  • Bless your heart, you clumsy girl! I think you’re my soul-mate–I too am a lifelong member of the Lack-of-Coordination Club! (*Hello, my name is Shanna, and I bruise easily.*) Seriously, I have bruises just show up, with no idea how they got there. Props to you for looking fab while doing it! Oh, and I landed square on my tailbone on the concrete floor in Wal-Mart (there was a whole buggy incident…don’t ask), so I know how that feels!

  • Great outfit! I love the two hues of blue on top – great contrast!

  • I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve face planted in public, and having a big, not-yet-quite-obedient dog certainly didn’t help matters. I’ve definitely eaten sand while taking my dog for a walk on the beach. I also won’t deny I have permanent scars from some falls in college–I wish I could say after a night at the bar but the truth is mostly walking to class. Clumsy people, unite!

  • First of all, as we’ve discussed, I fall all the time. It is such a pain in the ass to have zero coordination skills. But, you look absolutely beautiful in your outfit! That’s prob my favorite thing you’ve worn on the bloggy. I have a big love for long skirts/maxi dresses. How much easier does it get?! Hope your hand feels better soon booboo.

  • I adore your outfit!

  • You are HYSTERICAL. I find the voice that you write in REFRESHING. Love this blog.

  • With havin so much content do you ever run into
    any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a
    lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of
    it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization.
    Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being ripped off?

    I’d definitely appreciate it.
