I had all these wonderful intentions of updating my blog today, and it won't let me upload pictures. Sad day. Be expecting a Spring Break update soon. In the meantime, here's a story that will make you feel better about yourself:

Today, I went by the grocery store on the way home from work. After parking the car and getting out, I realized I forgot something in the car. I forgot that I was driving the Mazda and not the 4-Runner, and so when I tried to duck back in to grab it, I severely underestimated the height I needed to squat down to. Somehow, in a way that only a klutz like me can, I managed to ram my face into the door frame of the car, severely smooshing my forehead with my sunglasses. Well, it hurt, of course, but I'm used to causing myself bodily injury. I do it on a daily basis. So, when I realized no one had witnessed my embarrassing moment, I grabbed what I needed in the car and hurried into the store.

I finished my shopping.

I talked to the clerk.

I came home.

I bought candy from Landon, our adorable neighbor who was doing a fundraiser for school.

I ate a snack.

Chad came home.

His first words, "What did you do? You're bleeding."

Yes, I had been bleeding and had a lovely scab just above my eyebrows. Why? Because I rammed my face into the door frame of our car. Wow. Way to go, Katie. Sometimes, my clumsiness even manages to surprise me...


  1. And how do you plan to explain that lovely scab above your eyebrow to your students tomorrow?
    I would go with moving furniture or painting accident.
    Just sayin'.
    And BTW...nothing like that has EVER happened to me.;)

  2. Have no fear. I saw you last night and didn't even notice it. So put some makeup on it and forget it. And like Wendi, nothing like this has ever happened to me either. (Let me count the ways).

  3. you should ask Chad about my accident when i walked into the bathroom door and slammed my face. It will make you laugh. Sorry you hurt yourself, but I can really unerstand.

  4. Oh Katie love it when you blog, they are always entertaining! Junior Miss pageant was this last weekend and I thought of you, and how awesome you where, also next year the stake is contemplating doing "My Fair Lady", and pretty much nobody does "wouldn't it be loverly" like you miss!

  5. I like to blame my clumsiness on pregnancy...but anyone who really knows me sees through that in a second. It is nice to hear that other people do things like this too! Great story.

  6. Great story Katie. Your so funny.

  7. Sounds like you had ~one of those days~ Sorry you hurt yourself!

    Hope you had a good time with your mom! She is so much fun. I think it's hard that you are so far away.

  8. Nice. So no one in the store said anything about the blood--too good!

  9. I do stuff like that all the time...and my profession is to be graceful!!~
