I've been slacking here on the old blog. I guess I just haven't had much to say... (What!? Stop laughing!) I know. It's been a busy couple of weeks, regardless.

*I've been getting used to my "new" position at work. Keeping my head down and doing my best to get the stuff done that I need to.
*I've also been getting used to my "new" dad decided that I should have a 4WD car, and helped me get an '06 Jeep Liberty. LOVE it. (Thanks, Dad!)
*This is a shocker: I've been going to the gym too. I know, right?! Shock, I told you!
*I took a week off of work and managed to get my house clean and spent some time with my mom and then went to a friend's daughter's wedding. Good times.

What was not fun about this weekend was the last day of it. My mom and I and Sami were in my dad's place visiting him. We were about to go out to breakfast when Sami decided to do a stunt dive down the stairs. Now, my dad has one of those electric lift chairs that takes him up and down the stairs, which is why Sami can't reach the railing. She tumbled down the stairs, and wound up with her head on the metal foot plate of the chair, legs up the stairs. I'm going to say thankfully she landed like that, because the floor in the entryway is slate. So, that would be the lesser of 2 evils...she had 2 bumps on her head, a bruise on her forehead, a scrape and bruise on her side, among others. The part I can look back and laugh about now is that my mom (who has 2 bad hips and a bum ankle) literally threw my dad's walker out of the way so she could get to us, and my poor dad was stranded in his chair, unable to get up since his walker was now across the room. Retrospectively speaking, that's funny. ;)

We were able to calm her down, she was fine, other than the bruises. The rest of the day went downhill, ending with her throwing up on me at the Cracker Barrel. No, it had nothing to do with her hitting her head, but rather the fact that she was all worked up and gagged herself on a dumpling. AWESOME ending to an otherwise pretty uneventful weekend. At least I had a change of clothes in the car.

  1. LOL! Oh, Sami!! She may be super smart and adorable, but I'm starting to think she's got some pretty klutzy genes in her!! Lol. Now you know how I felt as I saw her tumble head-over-heels down your stairs! I think she subconsciously wants to be a gymnast or something HAHA. I'm glad she's ok, of course!! And I can't wait to see you on Monday!! I can't believe I've been gone for 2 months now, it's crazy! It doesn't feel like it! Oh, I'm cross training in pharmacy today! Our store is giving flu shots, and it's always real busy so I finally get to cross train (like Matt promised me over a year ago lol). Cya soon!! :) :)
