Sports, Injuries, The "Sports Mom" Thing...

YIKES!!! Ya know... When I signed on to be a mom, I didn't count on a lot of things... Like sitting for 2-3 hours at a sports practice, when my son can only WATCH, because HE BROKE HIS WRIST!!!

But, that's what happened... He broke his wrist at school last Wednesday, during recess -- playing football, wouldn't ya know it -- and now he can't practice football with his team! But, as a dutiful supporter of his team, he "gets" to go to practice and watch, in the rain, wishing he could do it all with everyone else... Poor kid!

This is the one who did the flip off his bike and got 7 stitches in his mouth. Now he has a "buckle fracture" on his left Radius... At least he is right-handed!

This is the one who just "knew" he would be "good at football," causing us to get him AND his brother signed up for the sport!!! (I won't even begin to discuss the cost difference between football and the other sports he has played -- let's just not go there.) And, of course, we couldn't get a refund on his fees, even though the games haven't even started yet... Sheesh!

But, motherhood IS rewarding! (If I say that often enough, it will begin to sink in, right?!? LOL!!!) At least I get to build some more character... Even though I'm enough of a character to begin with... ROFLOL!!!

Well, enough rambling for now... Gotta go back to my mothering duties! Here's to all you mothers out there! May you always see the silver lining!

You may have been wondering where I disappeared to, since I haven't been blogging for a while! Well, it's called going home to see family (1 week), having family come see us (for 10 days), and then working in our VBS program for a week! Whew!!! It's enough to keep a person pretty busy!!! Good, but ***BUSY!!!***

Tomorrow, the VBS families are going to have a swimming day and, on Sunday, we get to present a program for the parents, sharing what the kids have learned all week (and I'm the one who gets to recap it all for them! LOL!)... So, sorry, I'm not posting any projects today or this weekend, but maybe Monday evening, after I've had a chance to stamp again!

I have to share something else, though! I've been ***highly honored*** by being listed on eclectic Paperie's eP Friends list a few weeks ago!!! Woo-hoo!!!! Thank you, Daisy & Joy!!! You should see the other eP Friends listed on the eP blog ( They are all such fabulously-talented women... WOW!!! I'm a little intimidated to be in their company!

Anyway, that's the news from here, and I'll be back to posting more regularly next week! Chatatcha later!
