the week that was

SUNDAY- reagan and thomas spent the morning in the ER. reagan had been jumping off of a bed the previous night and landed funny on his foot. requisite wailing and gnashing of teeth ensued. the foot looked bad, real bad michael jackson. the ER doc said that the x-ray was inconclusive and that reagan just needed a splint and to stay off of it for a week and a follow up appointment with an orthopedist on thursday. that also meant missing a week of schoool. reagan's response? "but i just hafta still play."

TUESDAY-scarlett's first day of pre-school EVER. i got up early to run and i came home sick as a dog. i needed to go outside and eat some grass. it was that bad. and as a result, i could hardly move and i let scarlett sleep until 815. her pre-school starts at 830. and she needed a bath. i finally pulled it together and scarlett got a bath and i got a bath(after two attempts). i sheepishly walked her into school at a few minutes after 9. and i did NOT appreciate the stink eye that her teacher gave to me. she is lucky to have scarlett in her class.
but because we were so late, all i had time for were these weak first day of school photos:

running into school:
a quick pause at the fish tank:

pick up. she was done with the photo taking.
WEDNESDAY- i spent a good deal of the day reading mockingjay. thomas had surprised me with a copy after i had spent way too much time searching for it around town. and thanks to the walmart employees who questioned me for looking for a book called "monkeyjaw". seriously. they had never heard of mockingjay.
i tried to pace myselfwhilst reading it so that everything else in my life wouldn't go to pot(unlike every other day of the week). in interest of spoilers, all i will say about the book is: team gale forever.

THURSDAY-reagan's appointment with the orthopedist. it was sort of WAY awesome. his office was really swanky with floor to ceiling windows and waterfalls and a paging system like they have at applebee's with the buzzer that lights up. in the waiting room they had 6 gigantic flat screen tvs all showing reruns of burn notice. i wish had a dressed up for the occasion.
the doctor took a quick look at reagan's foot and deemed that his 3rd metatarsal was broken.

next to us there was a kid also being checked out by a doctor. he was screaming so loud that they had to come in and turn the volume up on the tv in our exam room. the kids kept asking me what was going on outside with all the noise. i told them that there was a puppy dog in the next room trying to get out and run outside. i don't know if that explanation helped or hurt.
and poor scarlett thought her turn was next.

SATURDAY-i got up and ran and it was a success. slow and steady. and then thomas suggested that we head on down to georgia to the outlet mall and see what wares were for sale. something seemed fishy about that exchange but i didn't dare ask because i am not one to turn down a day of shopping. about 20 minutes out of town the truth came out. we were definitely heading to the outlet mall but first we would be stopping to pick up some new georgia gear for the upcoming football season. and then i would get to shop. seems like a fair enough deal.
reagan and thomas should be adequately outfitted for at least 4 months.

SUNDAY-thomas and i both received new callings to serve in at church. thomas was called as 2nd counselor in the young men's organization and i was called as the laurel's advisor in the young women's organization. and i am totally excited. i still haven't gotten over the fact that i am not 16 anymore. this calling is perfect.
sunday afternoon has been filled with playing in our disaster area of a playroom. a fantastic mess means a fantastic time. reagan and thomas played football on reagan's new georgia football rug and scarlett does what scarlett does and she does it with no pants on.

ps-is it a bad sign that we have moved too much that one of the kid's favorite things to do is to pack up all their toys in boxes and pretend to be moving?

Now that is a busy week! Good luck with the YW. I have to admit that terrifies me. How do you manage with both of you needing to be at mutual on the same night?!

Thanks for not spoiling Mockingjay. I have it in the delivery box still since we are going to the beach in a week and I need to get us packed and ready before we go! :)

Sorry about Regan, your sickness, the GA shopping trip...blah, blah, blah. Let's get down to what important...TEAM GALE???? what??? I'm not sure our friendship can survive this. YUCK! I almost could even start readin the book just because Gales name was mentioned! :)

Ok, I love ya! And I am really sorry about the week! :)

I've thought for a long time that Laurel Advisor is the perfect calling for you. I'm so glad Heavenly Father, your Bishop and the YW President finally got their act together!

(Was that sacrilegious? Are we still friends? hahaha)

Carie said...

I think football gear is a good trade off for a trip to the outlets.

Hope Regan heals quickly.

Jessica said...

color me jealous. i've never served in a yw calling -- i always get put in rs. boooo. j/k. kind of. hahahaha. poor reagan's foot. that sucks. and i am totally getting inspired to try and start running again. i've really got get my act together here. do you run outside? or on a treadmill? and if you do run outside, when do you do it? and are you training for a new race? or are you just that dedicated of a runner. enquiring minds want to know!

First, sorry about your little man's injury, that stinks! Second I your daughter, she is adorable. Love her first day of school pic.

Elizabeth said...

Congrats on the calling!! Totally jealous, I love working with the YW. And that is hilarious that your kids pretend to be moving...too funny. I hope Reagan's cast gets lots of signatures and such on it, and that his foot heals perfectly!
