Thuumbs Up

Thumbs up to me…

Late last night I managed to put a huge gash across the top of my thumb!

Are You Kidding Me??  is what came to mind!  =)

my life is full of never ending medical  “hiccups”…



I can hardly type now


Good Times!!

I am using a splint to keep it straight so I don’t bend open the huge cut!

it wasn’t pretty…

lots and lots of blood

clean cut though

just deep!!

if the location had been different

I would have gone for stitches it is that deep!


blogging will be a little challenging this week!

maybe it will help me ramble less!!  (not likely) ha ha!

I have much to tell ya all…

for now photos will have to be worth a thousand words!!  =)

Here is a little of what we have been up to this week!

new shrub beds

cleaning EXTREMELY messy rooms

how does it get SOOOOO bad in kids rooms SO FAST!??

I told em off with their heads if I find messy rooms  next week!!  =)

I did…really!

I may have laughed when I said it…but I said it!!



5 times in 3 days !!!

I think

stupid toilet paper eating dog!!

for the record

he stops and drops it for my hubby almost instantly

not so much for me

there was a good 5 minute chase before I gave up

and got the camera!!!

Bad Merlin!!

and THIS


my water fearing non-swimmers are swimming this summer!!!

Whaaaaaaaaaa Hoooooooo!

they went from nearly terrified of water

especially near the face or eyes



We signed up for lessons right away before they changed their minds!

Now they are swimming the free style across the width of the pool!!

Fears tackled!


Now we are at the pool every chance we get!!


alright… I need motrin!!

I would cry “mommy” and suck my thumb

right now

if I could

but it hurts!  =)

I will comment very short and sweet as I read your blogs this week…



and I will use mostly photos this week for my blog updates!

because this was painful to type without my thumb!

meaning it takes too long, difficult to type ~ lots of typos being corrected and using my thumb literally hurts!

try it just for fun…

type your comments to me without your right thumb

I dare ya!!

come on… it will be fun (ny) !!   =)

Blessings y’all ~


Oh ~ PS:


My little man with low vision (20/200)  saw THREE shooting Stars!!  He thinks!

We could see hundreds of stars in the night sky …

Sammy counted about 5 stars he could see… =(

heart breaking!

We saw many meteors Thursday night…  Sammy only manged to see three meteors!!   Yay for little blessings!  I am thankful for the things he DOES see… and try not to dwell on what he can not!   =)

    Hooray for seeing stars!!! Hooray for swimming!!! I hear ya on the dirty rooms. It makes me insane. I feel like I am struggling with clutter constantly, and I can’t keep up. Boo for gashing thumbs. I think you need to make sure you don’t do any dishes this week, for sure. 🙂 Being a mom and having cut hands is horrible–you realize how much you depend on your hands all. day. long.

    Hope you heal quickly and get back to the norm soon! Have a wonderful week.

    Ouch!! Hope you’re back to all 10 fingers really soon.

    It’s been so cloudy here (but still HOT) that we’ve yet to see the show.

    Youch! That sound awful. Get well soon!!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I think we did lose each other in the blogosphere somewhere. Sorry I haven’t been by to visit in so long.

    We trade post cards through the yahoo group Postcard Kids. It’s lots of fun and you can do as much or a little as you like, so it’s easy. Another group I joined recently is called Postcrossing and there are more international opportunities so we ‘re trying that too.

    Hope you are having a great weekend! I’ve been through the puppy thing, ugh! It’s a good thing they are so darn cute! Ours is about a year and a half now and finally getting better manners. Hang in there 🙂

    You are not supposed to make me laugh when I’m trying to be sympathetic to your injury!

  • 9 Lori@ Teacher Turned Mommy yazmış:

    ouch! hope your thumb heals quickly or you figure out how to type with only 9 fingers… hunt and peck?

    Ouch! About your thumb! I hate it when I cut my hands-moms use their hands sooo much- dishes, taking care of kids, cooking….
    Great work on shrub beds- we have been getting flower gardens and such in order over here too.
    Yay for you kiddos liking the water! My younger brother was quite scared of the water for some time when he was younger.
    About Thomas the Trains….my little guy isn’t too much into them right now (although he does have a train set (free from my aunt- my girl cousins never played with it!) and he watches the show sometimes with my hubby. Right now he is all about Elmo. 🙂 So we figured we’d wait to do the Day Out With Thomas train ride for when he’s older- but we’re excited to do that some day!

    Woo hoo for swimmers. Boo for blogging with only nine fingers…on a positive note at least you are not blogging with your toes. 🙂 I kid
    You are so funny. I tried to comment without my thumb…not fun. I will just leave that to you. 🙂
    Hope it heals quickly.
    We wanted to see the meteors but fell asleep. Sheesh. Glad Sammy saw some.

    🙁 Sorry to hear of your thumb, but happy to see that smile along with it. Happy b-day to your dh and anniversary to you both. Loved hearing from you today. Little Man was a challenge to teach in the 2nd grade and still is as the years moves on. But we make it and he some how learns. lol Blessings Catherine

    Sorry to hear about your thumb. When my last (first? only?) flare up came on full force in April, I couldn’t type for the life of me. It felt like my hands were cartoon hands. So, I can kind of relate. Frustrating. 🙂

    Good for you to celebrate your little guy’s triumphs! We all need to do that!

  • 16 H-Mama @ Family Team yazmış:

    Bless your heart! Poor thumb. Amazing the things we do with that lil’ digit, huh?

    Your pup made me giggle. Sorry.

    Yay for swimming… That’s when it gets fun, and a lil’ less worrisome for mom. 😉

    Let me know if you ever figure out how to keep a child’s room clean. I ‘do’ enjoy the 12 seconds that it’s clean though. Haha!!
