In the span of about 7 days we had the following all occur:
- Luke breaks his left radius and is put in a cast
- Anna gets her braces put on and runs a track meet that same afternoon
- My car is hit by a high school student while it is parked in the parking lot at my work
- I win a Motorola Xoom at a work trade show
The good news so far is that Luke only has 18 more days with the cast. It is starting to get warm out and I am sure he is struggling with it on. We have had some good chats about going to soccer practice and to the games and being a “team player” He does a pretty good job encouraging his teammates. He is handling this much better than I ever thought he would.
And I know that we are only 5 days into the braces, but Anna is handling the adjustment as well. She struggles with food, but is doing well otherwise. I jokingly told Anna that I will get braces to use it as a way to help control my eating habits.
As for the car, the poor blue bomber. I was at my desk at work when a co-worker came running in and said I think that someone hit your car. I was shocked. My car is so tiny, one would think that you would need to purposely hit it. It was a high school kid who took the turn into the parking space a bit too wide and blammo. About $700 worth of damage.
I already own a iPad and have now won a Xoom. Taking me a while to get use to it. I will report back on that a bit later.
Never a dull moment around out house.
