Fallin' for you

This week is my Spring Break. I have a list of things I wish to accomplish in an effort to make myself feel productive. Monday, I focused on my room. I tidied up the cluttered areas, reorganized the bookshelf, dusted. Yadda yadda yadda. I also decided to reorganize my closet. This particular task required a step stool to reach the tall shelves.

I was just about done moving things around and making them look more organized when I realized that I had forgotten an item that I wanted to store on the top shelf. This step stool that I had only has two steps, it's not that tall.

Yet, as usual, I was able to successfully trip over my own feet, find myself flailing my arms in an attempt to keep my balance, and land in my laundry basket full of dirty laundry- only barely missing slamming my head on the wooden chest that resides in my room.

The end result: A big knot of a bruise below my knee on my left leg where the step ladder landed and stiffness in both legs. Thankfully my laundry basket is fine. I didn't even break it after landing in it. (Deep sigh) It's official, I'm a semi-klutz. I have a tendency to just bungle things up even when I try my hardest. The good news is that I don't ever injure myself very badly. It's always minor. Fun fact about me: I've never had a broken bone! I tend to be super cautious and it usually pays off. It's the simple things that get me. Cursed step ladder!

Oh, and my closet looks all nice and organized now. Go me!

Until next time,
