Head Injury

Today was our grocery day. I 'sinned' and went to walmart to buy our food, ha,ha. I sure saved a lot of money though!

Anyways, my girls did wonderfully- I almost couldn't believe how well they behaved.

Then we got home. We ate lunch, cleaned up and got on the floor to play with a new toy I bought. (it's a GREAT wooden block set marked down to $5) I was laying on my side, watching Leiah and Alexa, the cat decided to perch on my ribcage when out of nowhere I get knocked in the side of my head with what felt like a brick! I cowered my head to the ground praying that I was ok because it was real close to my temple. As I was trying to recover I got hit again!

My sweet, cute little baby girl, had gotten a large heavy book and threw it at me! The corner of it hit my head. She laughed, then did it again! Finally I got up since it seemed she was gonna keep beating the mess out of my head and I had to forcefully teach her a lesson about throwing things. I had to get an ice pack and finally just take some advil.

I wish I could have seen what that looked like from the outside- I bet it was really funny. I kept thinking, what if she had knocked me out cold? Thank the Lord she hit me and not one of the other girls.

Umm, I think we've hit the 'terrible twos' a bit don't ya think?? I am cracking down on her a lot so that we can bypass most of the terrible twos.

Anyways, I was commenting on someone's website, and instead of a word verification you have to do a simple arithmetic problem. Mine was '9+4= ' and I typed in '12'. Maybe that knock to the head made me forget how to add...Maybe I need to start practicing math in my spare time- me, who made straight A's in calculus and chemistry!!!!!

Ouch! I'm glad you are okay! I got hit in the nose with a wooden block once. I thought I was going to pass out! I had to go to the doctor for x-rays! Yes, the terrible twos are...terrible!

I JUST READ YOUR PREVIOUS POST AND MY HEART REALLY GOES OUT TO YOU. I MEAN THAT, SINCERELY. IT'S HARD MAKING TIME FOR FRIENDS AFTER ONE HAS STARTED HER FAMILY. I'VE SEEN MANY PEOPLE GO YEARS THROUGH THIS, AND IT'S HEART WRENCHING. MY SISTER HAS FOUR LITTLE KIDDOS, ALL REALLY CLOSE TOGETHER. SHE PUTS OUT A LOT OF EFFORT TO STAY CLOSE WITH HER FRIENDS. IT'S GOOD THAT SHE AND I HAVE EACH OTHER. AFTER I WAS MARRIED AND HAD OUR SON NOT EVEN A YEAR AFTER, IT WAS HARD WITH THE FRIEND THING. FOR ME, I LEARNED THAT NOT ONLY DO THEY NEED ME, I NEED THEM. MY BEST FRIENDS ARE SO DIFFERENT. ONE OF THEM IS MARRIED WITH TWO CHILDREN, AND ONE IS STILL SINGLE. YET WE HAVE BONDS THAT WILL NEVER BREAK. I'VE LEARNED THAT ONE DOESN'T JUST NEED FRIENDS WHO ARE IN THE EXACT SAME PREDICAMENT AS THEY ARE...THERE IS SO MUCH BEAUTY IN DIVERSITY.
I HOPE YOU FIND SOME LADIES THAT WILL LOVE YOU AND CLING TO YOU AND BE THERE FOR YOU. IT ALWAYS HELPS, ESPECIALLY WHEN ONE ENDURES LIFE'S HARD JOURNEYS...AS I HAVE THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS. I KNOW IT'S JUST THE INTERNET, BUT I'M ALWAYS AVAILABLE, ANYTIME YOU NEED AN EAR. TRUST ME, MY FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES HAVE TURNED INTO BIG EARS FOR ME LATELY AS I HAVE BEEN GRIEVING. LATELY I'VE WANTED NO ADVICE, NO WORDS, JUST SOMEONE TO LISTEN. WE ALL NEED THAT SOMETIMES. NO PRESSURE, BUT I TOTALLY CAN IDENTIFY WITH YOUR SITUATION. THAT'S THE ONLY REASON I'M POSTING THIS. PRETTY DEEP FOR THE INTERNET! :)

THE FUNNY THING IS THAT I'VE MET AN AMAZING FRIEND ONLINE. WE EMAIL EACH OTHER OFTEN, AND IT'S SUCH AN ENCOURAGEMENT. HEY, IF PEOPLE CAN MEET ONLINE AND GET MARRIED, WHY NOT MEET SOME FRIENDS?!?! HOPE YOU HAVE A GOOD DAY.
