long weekend

This picture makes me laugh, I look like I'm 10 feet taller than Frankie!

Whew! I'm tired! It's been a long weekend. We started the weekend with a breakfast with some friends from church on Saturday. Hurried home to take naps (Bella and I both need an afternoon nap) and then went to a friend's birthday party. There were about 8 kids there from 1 - 9 years old. Bella was in heaven playing with them all. They did fireworks that night.
Sunday we spent the morning at church. I thought it was fitting that Independence Day was spent worshiping. It's what this country was made for. We came home took naps again and went to another BBQ. Bella was the only kid at this one, but they were very gracious hosts and had coloring books, bubbles, snappers, stuffed animals for her to play with. She had a GREAT time with all the attention of the adults. Needless to say by Monday we were all exhausted!

Monday we just had a relaxing morning, I made a real breakfast (something I never do) and we just hung out. Frankie and I decided to clean up the garage (a never ending project for us). I was rearranging a cupboard and had a glass vase in each hand and dropped one and hit the other and they both came crashing down and broke. Somehow one of them sliced right through two of my fingers on my left hand. When I got the cut cleaned enough I could see the inside of my finger, it was pretty nasty. I decided that I better go to Urgent Care to make sure I hadn't done any damage and it didn't need stitches. I was hoping a nurse could just look at it and see if they could stitch it. An hour and a half later I was finally seen by the doctor. He wanted to put stitches in it, but I didn't want him to have to put a shot inside the wound, been there done that, worst pain ever. I talked him into just putting steri strips on it so he did and put a splint on it so I can't move it. The cut is on the inside of the knuckle on my middle finger if I stretch my finger out it will pull it open again. It makes for a difficult shower and getting ready.

Needless to say it was a busy, exciting weekend. I was ready to get back to "normal" life.
