We are moving this weekend this weekend so I had to go to the gas/water place to move our services over yesterday. As I was walking in I tripped over one of those curb things you park behind and totally busted it. I just didn't see the stupid thing! I didn't hurt my belly or anything, just my knees, hands, and pride. My knees are all scraped up and were bleeding and they still hurt like heck. These two men came rushing out of the place to see if I was ok. It was so embarassing! It is making it really hard to pack too, because I can't bend over or get down on my knees very easily. Just a psa, everyone be careful and watch out for those sneaky curbs!

I know how you feel. A couple of months ago when DH and I went to the DMV I somehow, someway fell out of the bus as I was getting off. Scraped up my hands, freaked out my hubby, but it was actually pretty funny. Instinctively turned sideways as I was falling to protect the belly. The messed up part is that I could see my feet perfectly fine and was not the waddle worm I am now.
