Sick day

Today is sick day for the girls at our house. Emily woke up in the middle of the night sick to her stomach. Ugh!! So between that and my foot, we're sitting in our pj's doing a whole lot of nothing today! We're getting bored with cartoons...maybe we'll play a game later. And we're watching for the big brown truck. He's supposed to be delivering my swimsuits that I ordered from Old Navy. Hope I like them and they fit and look nice. I can try them on and daydream about my trip to Puerto Rico in the fall.

Mojo is keeping us great company today!

How sweet!

Ben & Emily are so sweet & thoughtful...they picked me this "get better" bouquet of wild flowers this evening.

Quite the Cappuccino!

Well, yesterday started off "on the right foot" so to speak. Ben left for Rochester for a 2-day class and Emily and I got ready for school and work and left with plenty of time to spare (for once). I delivered her safely to school, and realizing that I still had 40 minutes until I needed to be at work, I decided that I'd stop for a cappuccino and have a nice leisurely trip to work. What a calm, nice morning...until I stopped at the local convenience store for the cappuccino. Not a good idea! I got out of my car and started across the parking lot and turned my ankle. foot hurts a little, but no big deal. So I continue into the store, get the cappuccino and pay. I get back in the car and off to work. So I'm there at work doing my thing, but every time I get up from my desk for something I notice my foot is starting to hurt worse. So by the time I leave work I'm hobbling to the back door and across the parking lot wondering if I'm really going to make it to my car. I manage to get there, drive home and drag myself into the house. Then comes the fun part...up the stairs to the bathroom. As time passes, I decide that it's getting worse not better, swelling and getting bruised. Not a good sign. I can barely walk even hanging on to various pieces of furniture, etc. Needless to say, I ended up in the ER. 2 1/2 hours later I was finally on my way home with a cracked metatarsal (bone in the side of my foot) and wrapped up with an ace bandage and one of those flat, hard soled velcro boot-shoe things. Such attractive footwear!! The latest spring fashion! Anyway, I am seeing the orthopedic dr. Thurs. afternoon.
All that for convenience store cappuccino...for all this trouble & pain, it could've at least been Starbuck's or a nice cafe or something!!!

"Grandma & Grandpa" came for dinner this evening. After a nice meal, some fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and a couple of fun games, they decided to head home. So we walked them out and Emily decided to "test drive" their MG, try Grandma's visor and Grandpa's hat on for size...and show a little attitude to top it all off!

We're off!

It's official. We've booked our 10th anniversary trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico... Exciting! It is going to be such fun, so relaxing, and such a major photo opportunity for me. I can't wait!


With the help of a wonderful group of family/friends, the house is finally totally sided... HOORAY!!!

Our little artist

The school recently held the annual art show at the mall.
Our little artist was so proud of herself...she had 2 of her works there.
