I fell again



I did a cleaning of my bedroom. I came across a pair of clog shoes.

I use to wear them all the time before I was stroked. After I have only warn

flat shoes, saddles, tennis shoes for 10 years. The clogs are kinda flat

but they have a incline. I was deciding if I will that them for a spin.

I took them for a spin, wore them when Carl and I when out to

lunch. Everything was fine until we started back home and Carl spotted

a restaurant he wanted me to get out and check it out and get

a to go menu.

Carl pulled up in front of the restaurant and I jumped out. Walking towards the

door, had one step up on to the sidewalk ????? Down I went, like a board

standing reject straight up now flat down. My sisters gave me

a cushion in the front, poor Thelma and Louise is what I name them. :roflmao:

Before Carl could get out of the car and help me, I got myself

up and brushed myself off. I rearranged my hat and continued

into the restaurant. Got a to go menu, looked over the food. It was

a pizzeria, they make calzones, all kinds of different pies as in meat pies.


Now about the fall I have to ask myself why? I thought I picked up my foot

to step up. I'm sorting this out and I come to the conclusion that I didn't pick

my foot up high enough. When wearing my flats I shuffle my feet. So wearing

the clogs is going back on the shelf. I'll stick to my flats.

So, how cute did you look?


Two weeks ago, my sister came and insisted on taking Bruce and I out to lunch. She insisted I dress and wear my super cool black boots. Except the boots do not have a gripper sole and Mary Beth can not transfer Bruce car to WC. So practicality prevailed and I wore black walking shoes to match my black pants. Looked super cool but also safe.


Sisn't help two days later, when in walking shoes was helping a neighbor with getting her the newspaper and fell on black ice.


Moral of the story: Might as well feel pretty and stylish, going to happen anyway.


Be careful! Debbie

Jeannie , as a caregiver pushing a wheelchair I always wear flats. The first few times I tried heels I slipped or twisted my ankle, I once lost control of the chair and managed to do the splits. None of that looks attractive. So I threw out all the unsuitable footwear and learned to ignore what the current fashion was.


I would rather be safe than sorry and in a plaster cast. It is hard to make the changes permanent but I realise that a lot of people are having to make those same decisions.


Ouch! Hope Thelma and Louise recovered...lol.
