Just some stuff

This is Fuzzy in his practice football uniform!  I can't believe he is getting so big!  Looking at the picture it is hard to believe that this is the same tough guy who comes looking for mommy to cuddle with at night sometimes, huh?

<sigh> Time flies....

Anyhow,

I have a houseful today! 

5 boys outside playing whiffle ball on the driveway and on the street.  2 girls playing a board game at the dining room table!

So, do the math, one extra girl and 3 extra boys!  lol

The boys were inside too because it was raining.  I am so glad they went outside!  They were playing Mario Party 6 and you would have thought there was a murder going on!  The screaming, the squealing!!!  Yikes!  I can't wait until their voices change!  Actually, yes I can...lol.

Okay, the girls have joined the boys now, outside.  He he, should be fun now! 

Yesterday, one of the boys who is here today, Fuzzy's friend, M, fell off his bike.  He was scraped up pretty darn bad, 3 leg gashes and one elbow.  I patched him up with my dad and called his mom, who came over and brought him and his bike home.  M is still bandaged up but is running around like it never happened, of course!  Ahhh, to be 10 again!

Remember my wipe out at the Parent/Scout kickball game?  I still have marks on my shins from the scrape!  lol  The difference between 39 and 10!!  And, the immuno-suppressive meds I am on certainly add to my lack of healing.

Two of the kids that here today, brother and sister, are hopefully letting their dad have a nice nap while they are here.  Their dad was supposed to have arthroscopic knee repair surgery yesterday but when they went to give him anesthesia he had a horrific reaction and was intubated and everything.  Needless to say, his throat is scraped and sore and he feels like a Mack truck ran over him several times.  His surgery is now going to be Thursday late afternoon.  No more anesthesia, they are going to use a local block now.  What a week!!!  Say a prayer for my friend, if you could, please!

Never a dull moment as they say...

Be well,

Dawn

I always love to read this Carpe Diem Seizure of the Day.  Just remember I have six kids and our house always had a bunch of extras.  I made all my kids wear ID Tags so I knew which ones were mine.    You may not admit it but You really do love the noise and hustle and all around the house.  Speaking of extras I don't understand it but I will swear I sent about twenty kids through school.  It wasn't till they got their driver's license I was sure which were my six.

Yes, it looks like your baby is really growing up! What a fine young man he'll be. I can see why your so proud of him.
You have alot more courage than I when it comes to having all those kids over at your house! :) Seems like the best parents are the ones where all the neighbor kids like to hang out at. That says alot about you.
I'm so sorry that its taking so long for you to heal. I hope it dosnt take to much longer. Enjoy your day, and love to you all, Rhonda
