A swingset and how I almost lost my hand

So a whole 2 months after Mark's Birthday and a week after Anna's Birthday the kids finally got their big present. We don't like to rush after all. What a hit. The kids ask 20 bazillion times a day, Can we go play on the swing set? Puuuuleassssssee. And once we get out there they don't ever want to do anything else. It was definitely money well spent.

I had planned on giving you another tour of my workout room today. But due to my horrible injury and tetanus shot yesterday I'm a little sore. OK, fine. It's a relatively small injury. In fact, I felt pretty silly sitting in the ER with the tiny little rusty nail inflicted puncture wound in my hand. But never one to mess around with lockjaw, I got my shot. I do like to eat after all. So now I can walk through a bed of rusty nail barefoot right? Because I have always wanted to do that.

OK, done typing. Have a great weekend.

You rest now after your trauma! LOL

Hope that you had a good anniversary too!

LOL! You poor thing. I had a tetanus shot a week before my wedding. I used to love to tell people that. But it was because one of the kids in my daycare class bit me.

Swings are the best! Hope you feel better after your injury, I think you deserve some workers comp :)

I knew I could count on you ladies to make me feel better. Jason sure wasn't very nice. He sent me a text while I was at the hospital telling me tetanus shots really hurt. He closed with an LOL.

Belle-Thanks, we did.

Flea-Ouch. Did you sue the parents? With today's legal system you probably would have gotten millions.

Gina-I should.

I really enjoy the stories about your kids. They will have such great memories about growing up. They play outside and play together.

Sorry about your boo-boo. But glad you will be able to eat!!! :>)
