So this is the first post from my new phone, so I hope this works well. Bruce and I got blackberry curves and they are sa-weeeet!!!

Anyways, I'm here to tell you about my Friday, the 13th...
It was about 230 in the afternoon. Bruce, Oliver and I were heading into Mia's school for her Valentines Day party. Bruce was handling Oliver and I was carrying the 4 boxes of cookies that we just picked up at Buehlers. We are almost to the front doors and I all of a sudden slip my left foot off the edge of the sidewalk and snap it sideways. I fall, the boxes of cookies go flying and I land on my right knee.
Now I must admit, when I fell down like a ton of bricks, I wasn't sure I was going to get back up. First was the clicking pop I heard, then the snap inside my ankle I felt. Then came the utter embarrassment I felt from the other mothers making their way into the school as well. Some were very nice and asked how they could help. Others just looked at me and kept walking. Then the best one was the older lady that was carrying a box and goes, "oh geez, let me go put this down and I'll be right back to help you." She never came back!!! Didn't need her but SHE NEVER CAME BACK!!!
Saw her when we were signing in and she wouldn't even make eye contact with me.
So after we got back home, the pain was just getting worse and worse. Bruce told me I better go to the emergency room, so I did. Nothing is broke, just a really bad sprain. Went to the regular Dr.'s yesterday and he ended up referring me to the orthopedic guy because he didn't like the way it looked. Today I went to see him and he says air cast for 2 weeks and I'll go back and see him then.
So there was my Friday the 13th...I'm living in a bubble from now on....

New life...

Tonight Bruce and I's good friends, Brian and Amy Bammerlin became new parents. They had a little girl, Nora Ryan(sp?), she was 7 lbs. 1 oz.
I got such a high from all this excitement, it just brings everything back to me when each of my babies were born. We are going to see her tomorrow and I can't wait to hold her and smell her and all of that newborn baby stuff.
Bruce and I are planning on having maybe 2 more, but not going to try for another year or so when he should be done with school and we are in a bigger house. I also need to lose weight or I will be on one of those TLC shows of people that are stuck in their house and can't get of funny though, lose weight to gain weight, but I need to lose regardless, but that's a whole other blog.
Growing up, I knew I wanted to have kids, but never thought it would be to the extent of how I feel about babies today. Both my children came into my life under crazy (so to speak) circumstances, but were definitely blessings from the Lord above and have changed me in ways no one will ever understand. It makes me think about God and his plans for us, and I believe he has come in and "saved" my life more than once now. My children are daily reminders of how great his gifts truly are and I can't be more thankful to be trusted with such a precious thing, life.
