Only my dear Ashley could accomplish this

Ashley went bowling today.

What?! How?! Gasp! Ouch! Yes, all of the above flashed through my brain as well. Well, the "Gasp!" didn't just flash through my brain; it actually emerged from my mouth when I picked her up from the bowling alley. The "Gasp!" was purely an accident. Usually I remain more composed when my kids get hurt. It was just rather shocking to the eyes and I obviously had not gone through my mom preparation in the car on the way there (To self: "Even if it's bad I will not freak out in front of the child"). How? The ball got dropped, bounced, head bent over to pick it up and the result is above. She's not in a lot of pain. And we go to see the pediatric dentist on Monday. She's getting a crown. She'll be the only seven year old with a crown. Sigh.

Question of the morning

If you wake up with a cough drop in your hair, is that a sign of things to come today?

instead of blogging...

What I've been doing instead of blogging:

  • unloading a dishwasher full of dirty dishes. I didn't realize it until I was halfway done because I was multi-tasking. I'll have some surprises waiting for me later today I'm sure.
  • playing batgirl with my mighty batman (Nathan)
  • coughing. I've never had bronchitis before and would like to never have it again.
  • laundry and dishes. I know these are kind of a given, but, seriously, it never ends!
  • spending time dealing with car repairs. Okay, this is more Joe then me, but both vehicles are kind of on the fritz right now. Nothing serious...just really annoying.
  • enjoying some early Valentine's day romance from my husband...roses and blowpops yesterday. Yes, blowpops...I like them.
  • celebrating with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law over the birth of their new daughter...Jane Lillian Horn. I can't wait to meet her.
  • praying for the people of Haiti. It's breaking my heart. I can't watch anymore news shows about the orphans or I might just take a plane and get them myself.
  • helping Sara get a new "do". Pictures will be forthcoming.
  • celebrating John's birthday. Again, pictures will be posted...I promise.
  • and now it is time to work on some AWANA verses.
