Have you tried watching where you are going? Glad you were able to get up.

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

Scary thing is that my grandfather spent his last years in a wheelchair, and my father was semi crippled due to a fall from a hay wagon.  I have always been paranoid that the same thing might happen to me.  I would then be completely under the Princess's control   :barnie

Friends are the family you make for yourself.

The story of my life is that I have always been so busy rushing on to the next moment that I fail to remain in the 'immediate'.  I'm thinking that starting next year I will start being more cautious.  :P

I'll leave that last one alone, as I have no Florence Nightingale tendencies. But my Mom got her foot under a creeping grass stem and it took her right down.

i go crazy just depending on Bill because of my hand! Be careful Sour!!! PS Ive taken a spill about 6 times now and only told Bill about the one where I hit my head. That was the day the food poisoning hit hard & I didnt know it! They actually say being too careful though can lead to an increase in falling. Find a happy medium-chill in a recliner :hugs

I'll glad your not hurt to bad . Old dude you need to turn dial to the age you are not the age you think you are . I fall all the time mostly because I think 20 and am 62 . My brain still high steps but my feet don't . But if you fall and can't get up crawl down here and I'll pick you up.:gig.

be careful who you trust  believe me   just as sure as you do  the ones you trust the most might. make a fool of you  the road you travel on my be filled with  ruts and holes  careful where you place your feet you might fall and bust your nose .

Not looking forward to driving across the desert though, so we'll probably spend the night in Kingman AZ to split up the drive

That's basically what we do also. My sister is the worst though, because she makes lots of money and is bad about buying too much.

Awesome. Candles is a neat idea. I've been wondering if an egg shell would hold wax. Been meaning to buy a box of gulf wax and try it. We made candles all the time when I was a kid. I remember ones with ice, and all kinds of neat designs and such.
