    Faceplanting Is Not Fun!

    Graceful aren't I? It hurts too. You'll just be casually strolling up the stairs and then all of a sudden you trip and just kiss the concrete at the top. I've done it so many times before, it's just about ridiculous! I would much rather fall 'down' stairs rather than up. Anything...

    *sigh*

    I fall up the steps on a near weekly basis. Usually when I have a drink of some sort on my way up to my room. It has somewhat become a way of life. For some reason my feet, slippers, and our stairs don't get along well at all.

    Proud Defier of Gravity.

    I've always said that ANYone can fall down stairs and let gravity do all the work, but it takes TRUE genius to DEFY gravity and fall up stairs.

    When I Was Prego

    Right after I had my third child I had lots of back issues. It would just go out and down I'd go, baby and all. One particular time I was trying to get up the stairs when I felt the stabbing and down I went. I leaned forward and was lucky to be close to the top. I managed to...

    Skip The Trip

    A lot of the time it's because I've tripped on my pants or skirt. Only once or twice has it been because I've tripped on the stairs themselves. There is something about stairs that brings out my inner klutz 'cause I have tripped on pants that were very similar to skinny jeans. I...

    More Than I've Ever Fallen Down Them.

    That's right, I fall up stairs much more than down them.  I think If I'm trying to run up stairrs it is a lot easier to trip going up than down.  Luckily the fall isn't nearly as bad.  I know a couple people who died falling down stairs, but that's...
