A Month of Mondays

It's a been exciting around here, can't you tell?


I'll tell you what it has been. Sick.

Sick as in ill, not as "That's sick!" meaning awesome, cool, what have you.

It's been Bill, all the kids but mostly Ben and also Lucy.

Various forms- achy body, upset tummies, fevers, vomiting, the runs, light-headedness, infected hangnails and limping. We've had lots of limping.

And it has all happened on Mondays for the most part. And you know when it happens on a Monday, it just throws the rest of the week off.

I don't think I'll bore you with who had what except for some notable exceptions. The hangnail situation belongs to Luke. He's fine now. The limping is shared between Ben and Lucy. Ben would go to basketball practice, be fine until we got home and then start limping/not being able to put any weight on his leg. He'd lay around for the day but by the end of the afternoon be able to get his weight back on it and play a mean game on Saturday only to limp by the next day. Turns out he has a pulled hamstring. A visit with the physical therapist diagnosed this and Ben left with stretches and strength exercises. Problem solved. Now on to his upset tummy. No ideas except the boy plays hard, rides hard and leaves it all out there.

When your just one year old giant puppy dog starts laying around, you know she's not feeling well. She didn't want to put any weight on her back right leg. We visited our vet and he guessed a strained knee. She's still not feeling her best so she'll be visiting him again real soon.

It's all this plus a bunch of regular life mixed with some new extra stuff that has made it a tad quiet on here.

Hope all is well with you. If not, here's a hug. We know how you feel.
