I am so glad Bev posted this:
Because tonight I needed it!
I was hanging blouses on our sunroom windows (we jokingly call them our curtains!). Yes, I bought a nice contraption from Vermont Country Store so we would not have to stand on chairs to hang laundry to dry in the windows. It was full. So I stood on a chair, needed to get down to move the chair. Problem was, somebody's children left the lid of the Rubbermaid tub containing the marble run on the floor.
Do you know what a Rubbermaid lid on a laminate floor becomes?
Unfortunately, I was not prepared for sledding, therefore I landed face forward on my left thigh, hand and shoulder/ribs. It took a few minutes to feel okay enough to sit up!
After testing everything (good thing I just took that CPR class where we learned to check everything when someone falls! ) I remembered what Bev said. I got up and did PBS.
I still have some sore spots, but am amazed how my chest area isn't quite as sore as it was.
I'm going to go rub on some mag gel and go to bed!
So Bev, I'm sorry you fell, too, but I am SO glad you thought to do PBS right away and then post about it!
(And yes, tomorrow's homeschool health lesson will be about safety--and what NOT to leave on the floor!!!)
