Night of Comedy and Music, head injuries and premature labor…

all in one day? Really? That is what our Saturday was like this week! We had our performance at the Coleman Theatre, Night of Comedy and Music, that was by the way a smashing success! So very proud of the group we were working with, both actors and musicians! So much fun to work with all that talent! When we got to the Coleman,David took off running after us with his head down and ran smack dab into the fire escape stairs that are halfway down. Hit so hard it knocked him on his rear! And boy you should have heard him scream! Charlie ran to help him and look at the gash that he had running across the front of his head, not good! This one required a trip to the ER. Now understand that Charlie is in the opening of the nights entertainment and now we are heading to the ER. It is 6:40 and the show starts at 7:30…you all know how fast they work in an ER. Well Kelly was with us and she offered to stay with David at the ER. He had stopped bleeding and seemed to be calm, so we left him in her care with instructions to call if she needed us for anything! Well it took 3 male nurses, the Dr and Kelly to hold David down for his staples. It took 9 staples, but they had to redo 5 or 6 of them because he was moving so much that they didn’t get them in good enough! And then he had to have a tetnus shot and an antibiotic shot after that. He didn’t have a good night at all! Kelly did get him back to the Coleman in time for him to hear Charlie and I sing our song! He loves to sing that song with us. All in all it was ok. David has a headache today and I have been keeping the tylenol and ibruprophen going for him. but he seems to be doing fine otherwise.
Then there is the premature labor…my sweet neice, Jill, is in labor and they are doing their best to stop the contractions but she has been contracting since Friday, it is now Sunday. They moved her Saturday to a hospital with a NICU in prepartion for the birth of this sweet baby 10 weeks to soon. I am praying that she is able to carry this baby a little bit longer at least, let those lungs get developed. My heart just breaks for them, there is nothing so scary as worrying obout your childs life and well being. Please keep Jacob and Jill in your prayers as well as the baby.
oh yea I almost forgot to let you know that we hit a dear on the way home Wednesday night from church! OMG, what a week it has been! We of course didn’t have any injuries, not so much for the deer! Or the truck! But thank God we were in the truck and not my honda, had we been in my little civic I think the story would have been different. It was a large deer and it would have come through my windshield. God is good, even to the point of directing us as to what vehicle we should be driving at what time!

Well I learned something this weekend!

If I want to get a lot of hits on my blog I post pictures of my kids! Lol, I average 3 or 4 hits a day and thats being very generous! After posting my kids senior pics this weekend I had 244 hits total from Friday to Sunday night! OMG!! I don’t think I even have that many friends so it leaves me to wonder who is looking at my kids pics and then I get kinda creeped out…

Anyway now that I am back to my faithful few, I have to tell you what else happened this weekend. My children, the same ones I posted pics of, decided to go on an adventure…one that ended up with the Sheriff’s department getting involved! We got a phone call Saturday night from a deputy letting us know that our children were being restrained in a police car till we could come and pick them up! Yes, you know I was thrilled about this! They make their mother soooooo proud! They had decided that it would be great fun to climb a water tower in a town I choose not to disclose! Not only that but they chose to do this when we are in the middle of a thunderstorm! Is there any part of this that sounds smart to you? Not only that but they had to get through a locked gate just to get to the water tower, they were in danger of being hurt first of all, and secondly they broke the law, trespassing, illegal entery to name a few, of which felony charges could have been filed! What.The.Heck.Were.They.Thinking? Oh, wait, silly me, they are teenagers and their sweet little brains are not fully functioning yet! The officer was willing to let it go if a parent came to pick them up and they are going to have to do community service. I am thankful that they let them go, charges would have had an effect on them for the rest of their lives and it definatley wasn’t worth that. What did we do you ask? Well for the one that still lives in our home, restrictions have been applied, but in all reality they are just old enough that “doing” anything about it is hard other than lecturing and expecting better behavior in the future! One of them dosn’t even live at home anymore! All I know to say is OMG! Life is truly full of suprises! For now I must go, it is time to leave for play practice! TA TA

Michaels Senior pics…

Senior pics

Okay this is not going to be an easy decision! Kelly has beautiful pics and I don’t know how I am going to settle on just one for the frame in the living room! Do I want a close up, or do I want one that is futher away? Do I want one in jeans or one in the dress? Help!!!!!
