Just my luck!

Yesterday as I was preparing to take a shower, I decided to spray the bathroom walls first with a Glade (like Febreeze) spray. The walls still have a faint cigarette smell that I'm trying to get rid of. I didn't close the cupboard door because I was trying to hurry, and I kicked the corner of it on the top of my right foot really hard by accident. It was one of those kinds of pains that leave you breathless and you think you're going to throw up. Well, my foot hurt pretty bad for the rest of the day.

This is not the end of my sob story, though. Lately Lahela has been coming into my bedroom in the middle of the night and climbing into bed with me. She tosses and turns sideways and kicks until I get so sick of it that I take her back to her bed. Last night was no different. I got up at around 3:30 a.m., carried her upstairs, and put her in bed without turning on any lights. On my way back downstairs, in the dark, as I neared the bottom, I thought I had one more step down when I actually had two. I fell forward, twisting my ankle. It was on the same side as the foot I kicked on the cupboard. I can't even describe that pain. It was horrific. I crawled back to my bed, shamelessly crying like a baby, where I felt myself going into shock from the extreme pain. I was shaking and shivering uncontrollably.

Today my ankle is a tiny bit swollen and it hurts to walk on it. Actually, it hurts when I'm not walking on it too. Pretty pathetic, huh?

I am such a good mother!

Here are some pictures of what Lahela did while I was playing Scramble on Facebook. She was being super wiggly in my lap, so I put her down. After I had done a few rounds, I looked down by my feet to see her fast asleep. She probably just wanted me to hold her all cuddly, but I was too busy. Boy don't I feel like Mother of the Year.

The new puppy

Kimball came home yesterday with a big surprise for us....a new puppy. I wasn't too thrilled. I'm not sure if we'll keep her, but here are some pictures. Hazel and Claire named her Rosie. She is a Blue Heeler. These pictures are her first bath. Hazel helped too. As you might guess, Hazel is in love. She's had a dream for a while now of having a dog and being a veterinarian when she grows up.
