Lets see how random i can make this?

i almost fell down the stairs. gee... it was a close one. See, i was out with erica this morning. she fell asleep in the car coming home [YES!], but i was gonna make one more stop by the movie store to return a rental. we rented Batman Begins. Now, i had heard some bad reviews about it. [mostly about katie holmes' role-- which actually wasnt really that big.] But i thought it was GREAT! i liked how it made Batman as a person make sense, about how he came into a 'superhero.' anyway, i was on my way driving, and luckily i checked the case before returning it--

its empty! gee. So, i head home. luckily she's still asleep. i pull up in the driveway. quick unlock the front door. then, come back to the car and get her out. Now, its very tricky getting a sleeping baby out of a car seat without waking the kid up. but, I DID IT! YIPPEE! so, i took her upstairs; i slipped my shoes off in the hallway so that they wouldnt make noise as i took her into her room. i put her down in her crib; covered her with a blanket; turned on the baby moniter (so i can listen to her now... and i dont hear anything... good!); then stepped out and closed the door.

boy, am i glad she's asleep! i havent had a lot of "alone" time lately (which i said yesterday). See, she's teething again. These are the signs i've FINALLY discovered:
1. She's cranky
2. She has a runny nose
3. She wakes up in the middle of the night-- several times
4. She stops eating
5. She bites everything
Hence, my life is miserable right now. Okay, thats an OVERstatement. its not really miserable. its just during nightime when i hear "wa-wa-wa" that i feel worn out. Which is why i was so glad that she was gonna take this nap.

ahh... mission accomplished. Now... where are my shoes? i'm looking and looking and cant find them. so i think: maybe i left them downstairs and not up here... So, i move forward to the stairs-- OOPS! yup, stupid me took the shoes off right at the top of the stairs; i hadnt seen them cuz i was standing RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM! if i hadnt caught a hold of the railing, i would have gone tumbling down!

"jack and jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water; jack fell down and broke his crown, and jill came tumbling after."

have a happy weekend!

Holy cow and yeowch! That's a good jolt to the adrenelin? huh?
I can't tell you how many times I've done that very thing. Stairs can be very slippery and tricky in the night. In my next house, they will not be carpeted and they will have tread on them. LOL I'm not getting any younger!

So very glad you caught the railing an sincerely hope you're not aching from it.

The teething will end soon and you'll wonder where it went. Then she'll find new reasons not to nap. LOL
Hang in there hon. You're doing a great job!

If Erica continues to be cranky, just bring her on over! And you can fall down my stairs!

Oh geez! I hate stairs.I always have this fear that I'm going to go tumbling down. I ALWAYS hold onto the rail going down even though people think I"m dumb.

Becky L said...

I always hold on to the railing too cause I've had too many times falling..over nothing..just tripping over my own feet or the bottoms of my slippers are too slippery :S You know what, I just realized something - why do they call it slippers? Are they meant to be slippery? Aren't they supposed to be some kind of support in the house so that you DON'T fall? How odd.

Clairissa said...

I think they're called slippers because I find that I slip MORE in slippers than in barefeet. Maybe...?

Anyway, I fell UP the stairs the other day while holding Reagan. Better than DOWN, but still not good!!

Abigail S. said...

I also fell up the stairs the otehr day. I slammed my finger into the wall... it hurted.

Clairissa said...


Sometimes I think falling UP just MIGHT be worse than down. At least with down, sometimes you know in advance that you're falling and can stop it (sometimes... we hope). With falling up, it's like so sudden... anyone else know what I mean? And I always seem to hurt my shin when I do it. :(
