It'll leave you in "stiches"

I'm talking about running around in the living room. Apparently it's not as safe as you'd think, as Samuel has now found out.

Monday evening he was running and playing with Natalie in the living room and fell into the TV stand, or something (nobody really knows where he hit). Blood was gushing out of his wound, and I took one look and knew it was off to the Insta-Care for stitches. The place wasn't all that busy (they were all home having FHE-guess we should've been doing that too) so we didn't wait too long. A nurse came out to put a local anestetic on Sam's head, then after a few minutes he was taken to the back (Brandon went with him and I stayed with Natalie in the waiting area). He got five whole stitches. WooHoo. We have to take him to get them out next week. I'm sure he'll have a scar there for the rest of his life. Of course, it will go along with all of the others that I'm sure he'll receive throughout childhood. I swear if this kid doesn't go into something in the medical field I'll be shocked.

Old Habits Die Hard...

But they CAN die!!!

This is my hand. Big deal right?
Actually what I really want you to focus on are those fingernails. Yes, they are real.
Now, if you know me, you know that I've had the worst habit of biting my fingernails most of my life. It's something I've always hated, and last year in my attempt to do my 30 things before 30 goal list; one of my goals was that I'd like to break the habit of biting my nails. Well, I went on Pioneer Trek at the end of July and have not bitten my finger nails since. I'll admit it was tough going at first, but I was determined, and can now say that I've rid myself of that horrid habit! WOO HOO!
Now if I could only break that OTHER habit...
you know...
the caffeinated beverage habit?

Here lies Canon Power Shot. She has perished from Lens Error. She had a great 4 year run, and took many a good picture. (She took many a crappy picture too, but we wont bring that up at this time, since that wasn't entirely her fault).
She is survived by her SD card, USB cord and very distraught handler Michelle-who feels guilty for dropping her all those times.
We regret that there will be no memorial service. In lieu of pictures of flowers, please send donations to Michelle Harden.

Okay Okay, I know, it's just a camera, but it still sucks. $150 for a new lens, and that doesn't guarantee it wont happen again (since it's very common in these cameras apparently). I did get a second opinion which told me that they could send it in to Canon (I pay) have them look at it, tell me what needs to be done and how much it'll cost (I pay again), fix it (if I want them to) and then send it back (I pay some more). GRRRRR.
The biggest thing that stinks about the whole thing is that I was feeling like my Canon was a bit bulky for some of the things I wanted, like YW's and the little stuff, so I was looking into getting just a point and shoot for those moments-well I guess Canon over heard me talking and decided she'd SHOW ME by up and breaking. So then I was like "Well now what do I do? I didn't want a little camera to REPLACE my Canon, but now I don't have anything."
Luckily, I have a hubby who buys and sells for a living, AND who happened to have a few point and shoot cameras on hand (just for me-Ha ha). So I found a little bitty thing (that weighs as much as Calista Flockhart) and decided, for now, that it'll have to do. I'm not a professional photographer so what am I whining about right? And anyway, one of my besties just got herself a new fancy-schmancy camera so I'll make HER take nice pictures of my kids! Yes I'm talking to you, SARAH!

Ho Hum, Pigs Bum...

Well, my camera is on the fritz. CRAPPY, I know! I keep getting a lens error message and then the lens gets stuck and the whole thing just wont work, which is SOOOO not good because (as it so happens) I have about 15 ideas that I want to blog about but can't because I HAVE to have pictures to go along with my blogs. Okay so maybe I don't have 15 ideas, but still, it stinks just the same.
So, until I can get my camera fixed I guess you'll just have to do with another clue for our super fun event coming up in June...ooops I think I've already said too much. hee hee.
