Flu Shots

IMG_5443-0.JPG

Don’t you get your flu shot when you go to the neighborhood carnival?  Mad and I did …. Lol!

   
   

We may or may not have been taking a break from selling raffle tickets!  In my defense I made a deal with the pharmacy booth, I’d get my flu shot in exchange for them buying a raffle ticket!  Mad got hers too and we happily sold 2 more tickets!  It’s all for the kids!

It was pretty rainy at Highlands Days today, hence the extremely curly-frizzy hairdo I’m sporting!  

Happy rainy Saturday night!

  

It’s all fun and games

IMG_5178-0.JPG

until somebody gets hurt….and that somebody is generally my klutzy self!  But this time it was still fun and games after my wipeout!

I spent this beautiful weekend up at Mad’s cabin in Shelton with most of my Baby Corner family.  I have lots of photos to share, well technically just a couple from my phone that I snuck when Mad wasn’t looking since the cabin is a “technology free zone”, but Stephanie took tons of and as soon as I am able to get them from her I’ll share them.  For today I thought I’d share my war wound that I proudly received:

 
 I went tubing and impressed everyone by my willingness to (1) go tubing in the freezing cold water and (2) my excitement of speed!  (I guess most people assume I’m a wimp….)

The boat was able to have two inner tubes going together and the first time I went with Chris’ son Ethan.  We both lasted a VERY longtime before we crashed into each other and I sadly was the one thrown into the freezing cold water.

After the boat came back to get me and I climbed back on the boat I realized my foot didn’t feel so good.  I somehow managed to whack/catch it on the towline was I was tossed off.  It immediately hurt but I wasn’t about to let a chance to tube again be missed and I climbed right back on.

After we got back to the cabin my foot was pretty swollen and painful.  Wanda’s husband is a Physical Therepist and said it looks like a pretty good sprain.  Luckily it doesn’t seem to bother me too much and hopefully can avoid a visit to the doctor.

The injury didn’t keep me down long as I was back on the tube again today. Now I have a nice bruise to remind me of a fun weekend!

I’m actually writing this post from the ferry and thought I’d end with a couple of photos:


I’m pretty sure I live in the most beautiful place on earth!!

Until next time…

Update 8:52pm: By the time I got home (I wrote this post on the ferry) my foot had swollen to twice the normal size and my bruising was crazy.  At that point I talked to my mom and decided to go into urgent care to have it X-rayed.

I went in and doctor agreed it’s either badly sprained or possible fractured.  Unfortunately they didn’t have an X-ray tech and I either had to go to the ER for X-rays or come back tomorrow.  I decided to avoid the hour wait at the hospital and will just go back first thing in the morning.  They did put me in a walking boot so hopefully that helps stabilize it.

  

Update 7/20/2015: This morning I went in for an x-ray and luckily it’s NOT broken, but is badly sprained.  After a busy day on my feet at work I’m home with my foot up and icing.  My foot looks even more black and blue and now my entire leg is swollen to twice the size of normal….it’s really lovely!

In addition to the sprain, I had an allergic reaction to something and have like 50 thumbnail sizes itchy welts to enjoy.  Needless to say I’m not loving life right now…

#CatchTheMoment365 ~ Week 40

post-day281-oct8.png

Look at me, two posts written in back-to-back nights!  It’s so nice to have some free me time after nearly two months of constant work events that took up several nights each week and often weekends too!  Watch out, soon I’ll be caught up!

Week 40 brought me to the week of the Diaper Banks in America annual conference in Kansas City, Missouri where I would present on social media.  Unfortunately, before I could go I caught a cold and had a big event to put on.  Week 40 was a very busy one for me!

#CatchTheMoment365 ~ Week 38

post-day267-Sept24.png

I spent a majority of this week prepping for my presentation at the National Diaper Bank Networks’ 3rd annual Diaper Banks of America conference.  The amount of time it took to pull together my notes, design my PowerPoint and begin memorizing it took a very long time; a lot longer than I thought it would!  Every day I would work at least four hours working on it so it would be perfect when it came time to present.

The rest of the week was spent with friends, family and of course work!  Week 38 was another great one for me!

#CatchTheMoment365; Week 29

day 199; july18

Ugh, I’m late again this week in my #CatchTheMoment365 post.  I think I used this excuse last week, but once again I’m enjoying the summer way to much to be inside blogging.  Fall will be here before I know it and I’ll have plenty of time to blog then!

Week 29 consisted of Baby Mason and Baseball, two of my favorite things in the whole entire world.  Week 29 was a great week for me….well until the end of the week then it was downhill.

#CatchTheMoment365; Week 20

day142; may22

This was one week I wouldn’t mind forgetting.  It seems like I spent the entire week sick.  Boo.  But on the positive it is a holiday weekend and I’m going with Brandi and the girls to visit our Grandma in Eastern Washing for the long weekend!  They are picking me early from work tomorrow and we will be gone until Monday afternoon!

I’m excited to get away for a couple of days.  Plus I haven’t seen my Grandma in three weeks and I think that’s the longest I’ve ever been away from her in my life!  Not to mention the last time Emmalee was in Kennewick she was only a few weeks old and now is 5-1/2!  Maddie has gone a few times since then, but it’s still been about four years for her!  Time flies!

YAY for families and long weekends!

Hope you all had a better week than I did and have fantastic plans for your Memorial Day weekend!

#CatchTheMoment365 – Week 9

WOW this week just flew by!  Bring on the weekend!  Don’t get me wrong I love work and really love fast weeks, but who doesn’t look forward to the weekend?  Week 9 may have been fast, but I still made sure to get a photo-a-day and AMAZINGLY I have yet to miss a day yet!  Today marked day #65! I can honestly say when I first committed to this challenge I didn’t think I’d be able to do it, but so far so good!

Catch the Moment | 365: Week 7 [#catchthemoment365]

This week went a whole lot smoother than last week’s photos went!  I only had one *panic* day…I’ll let you try to decide which day it was (or test to see if you read what I write)!
