As he left the house there was a garage sale on his street with a walker for sale. It was in perfect condition for 1 buck!!! My mother is HATING not being able to get around on her own. She is told to keep her ankle elevated and stay in bed until she sees the doctor but she keeps hopping all over the house and plans to get out today. There is just no keeping her down at all, she has so much energy! With her positive attitude she will heal quickly. She is still in some pain but cannot wait to get back at the gym. Thanks to all for your thoughts and prayers!

I gotta run, busy busy busy today. They are keeping us extra busy at work. All the gardeners are out planting and they are buying up all of our stuff at work! So today is church then work.

Have a blessed day everyone!
Hey CAH! Prayers for your mom! Sorry I missed what happened, but know that I am thinking of you guys now.

Glad to hear that she isn't letting a broken ankle keep her down!!!! Praying for a speedy recovery.

Thanks! One of the people that always comments about it, which really hurts my feelings, is my sister, which is their babysitter and she knows how they can be. My kids are good children, don't get me wrong, but they are like every other 1 and 3 year-old and have there moments. She will get her fill when she has her own. I tell her that all the time!

It would be okay just taking one of them, but taking both, especially DS, it would be out of control. If I turn my head for one second, he is gone and he just runs around - it's his age! Some people who don't have kids don't get it and look at me like I'm crazy and say to me, "It's your kids, you can't take them places and take care of your own kids?" Yes, I can, but this is totally different. It's somewhere where both of my kids have never been and with lots of people, plus as I said, my son is at that busy stage and just wants to run, run, run. A lot of people don't get it, but oh well. We will stay home, play outside here later this afternoon, and the kids want to blow bubbles too. Sorry for the rant! Haha

DS sounds a lot like my youngest niece!!!!!

Have fun blowing bubbles and enjoy the peanuts tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!

They would be good friends!

Thanks - it will get them to burn some energy! Maybe we will do some sidewalk chalk too, but will have to do it on our deck (we don't have a driveway or a sidewalk yet - that is one of this year's projects or so DH says!)

I am looking forward to the peanuts! I love Texas Roadhouse. It's my favorite chain restaurant. So good!

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's going to be a rainy morning here but it's supposed to clear up this afternoon. So I might get to sit out on the porch for a while tonight. I'm still wore out from helping with the girl scout event yesterday so I don't see much happening up until that point. Just laying around on the couch and watching some tv. I say that, but I'm sure something will come up. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!
