I'm A Sexy Mama!

So, you know the song by the Pussycat Dolls, Loosen up my buttons? Well, my friend has that song play when you call her cell phone, so instead of hearing the rings, you get to actually listen to some tunes while you wait for her to answer... Anyway, yesterday I called to check in with her and see about our Halloween plans and that song stuck in my head. I'm walking... okay strutting around the kitchen singing that song when I realize that I still have a truck load of candy that I need to unload before the Trick or Treaters arrive. I go out to the garage and I'm hauling in all of those big bags of candy, the jumbo bags from Costco, still singing about being a "sexy mama", when I go flipping up the stairs towards the kitchen....so not sexy. Candy goes flying, I scrape my elbow and knees, say a few bad words under my breath and try my best to pick myself up and regain my dignity. Thank goodness I was alone, (although the first thing I did was look around to see who saw me), Munchkin was napping, not that she would pass judgement anyway, she would have thought it was funny. Still, embarassing.

For those of you who don't know, I'm one of the most clumsy people you will ever meet. I have literally just fallen out of my high heels before, doing nothing, just standing, not even moving. It's like my feet and legs hate me and decide to remind me every now and then that I'm not as "sexy" as I might think, kind of a humbling experience, everytime it happens. So, I've decided that Hubby need not leave his shoes on the stairs anymore, it's dangerous, I could have be killed! What if I would have been carrying Munchkin? Okay, really, I didn't trip on his shoes, I'm just trying to figure out a way not to look like such an idiot!
