So, Hubby broke his foot.
Despite the vehement protestations of "I have never broken a bone in my life. It's not broken."
He managed to hold off a full 12 hours after the volleyball incident that caused aforementioned break before admitting that he may have been mistaken.
It took every ounce of self-control I had during those 12 hours to not make fun of him. I knew if I said one word, he would be all "You are the one that made me join the volleyball league in the first place. I wanted to stay home and watch TV and cuddle on the couch with my wife." I could see it in his eyes, so I said nary a word.
Fortunately, I have children who pay attention and are beginning to get a sense of humor just like ours. They've got my back.
Referring to an incident two years ago in which Hubby tore a ligament in his finger (which required a cast, voice-recognition software at work, and me taking over his dish-washing chores) while taking his socks off...
I'll give you a second to reread that sentence, because I knowit is quite the run-on and it is hard to believe he did such a thing.
After we arrived home from the hospital and told the children of the broken foot diagnosis, Buttercup looked at Hubby and said, "Well, at least this injury is legitimate."
The children were recently given a little speech about personal hygiene. How I shouldn't have to track them down to make sure they are showering/brushing teeth/using deodorant/all other ways to keep themselves from being smelly, disgusting embarrassments.
This morning, during our breakfast prayer time, I said, in part, the following prayer:
Please be with all those who are pregnant or wishing to be. Keep them and their babies healthy through the birth.
Help us to see ways we can be blessings to others, and give us the courage to be the people you want us to be.
Thank you for our healthy bodies. Help us to remember to respect them and care for them.
Afterwards I said with a smirk, "Did you notice I put in a bit about God helping you all?"
Phoenix replied, "Don't worry. I'm not pregnant."
This has absolutely nothing to do with teenagers. It's not even funny, but it can lead to something funny.
Every week, Kate from Can I Get Another Bottle of Whine has a "Caption That" photo contest. She posts a photo of someone doing something silly or looking ridiculous, and then readers submit funny captions for it. Her husband chooses a winner.
Last week she asked for some photos to use, so I sent her some. Today, she is using mine. Click over to see the photo and submit your own caption.
No funny teens here either. This is more of the "and such". My mom is coming for a "see the kitchen, and oh, yeah, the grandkids" visit for a few days, so don't be expecting much posting. Unless we wear her out and she falls asleep at 8:00. Always a possibility.
Have a lovely day!
