Everything is going pretty good. Brook has adapted fairly well to having casts on both her arms. I get a few funny looks when some people see them. Come on people, I did not just allow this to happen.
Last night she had TaeKwonDo. Everything was going real well. She worked on her form while the rest of the class worked on numchuks. Later they were doing running and jumping kicks. Brook is not supposed to do those so she was doing the standing kicks. Well that child decided that one heart attack this week was not enough. She attempted a running side kick and hit the floor. It took everything I had to not run out on the floor and get her. All I could do was cover my mouth and turn my head. The tears came though. A couple of the other mothers knew what I was going thru and was comforting me, reassuring me that she was fine. Everytime I think of it I tear up. I know I cannot protect her all the time. All I want to do is wrap her up and hold her forever and never let anything or anyone hurt her. I know I have to let her go and go her way. All I can do is hold my arms out for her to run to them if she needs them.
Now on to other topics. I come home last night to a big surprise! My darling had decided to try his hand at something new. Introducing the newest baker in my household Isn't he cute? In true baker tradition, he got icing everywhere! Somehow he got it on his boots! The cake turned out pretty good. Had a few large air bubble pockets in it but that was nothing. Now there is no stopping him! If he gets a sweet tooth craving he may just very well bake his own cake!
In other news. Susie was in labor all day yesterday. She followed me around and laid on my foot all day. Pat called me when I was on my way to Taekwondo and told me that Susie was panicking. She was going all over the house looking for me. I no sooner got home and she came and rubbed on me and then went under the bed to deliver her babies. I looked in on her about midnight and she started purring. She was still having babies then. She was so big! Not sure how many but I predict 5! This will be her last litter.
I tell you when it rains it pours. First Brook breaks both wrists, then Candiac's alternator goes out in her car. Next she gets fired because all she wants is to work. She does not want to be in charge of a crew. Next she breaks her toe when she stubs it. Now yesterday, I get attacked by a cat and get a bad place where the teeth went in(no rabies, just a vicious cat.) Next the string breaks on my tiller and I cannot seem to get it on there right again. Now the alternator goes out on the tractor after just replacing the battery! This week is almost over, right?hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Ok, so tonight Brook is going to Movie Night at TaeKwonDo. I have to pick her up by midnight. She is looking forward to that and so am I! I think I need a break.
That is it for now. Gonna drink some more tea then go feed the animals, fix the tiller, clean the pool, go grocery shopping, go to library, wash clothes................ Dang I think I might go back to bed!
