Wednesday WARNING!

caution


The Surgeon General has determined that exposure to Lime can result in serious bodily injury, mental deficiency, emotional instability, simple chronic halitosis, sweaty palms, bad hair days, or a bad case of the heebie jeebies at the very least.

I dunno what the heck is going on but here at the House of Lime we've had our second person to fracture a bone in as many weeks. No, it was not due to zipline use or other death defying activities. Isaac slipped in the shower Sunday night and jammed his thumb pretty nicely. We iced it, gave him some Advil, let him stay home Monday since it was his dominant hand and he would have a hard time writing. We thought he'd be ok. It got more and more swollen so we had it checked out Tuesday night. Lo and behold, the kid has a hairline fracture and got splinted until he can see the orthopedist. Little League just started for him too and he's likely out for the season. I'm very disappointed for him but he is so far taking it like a trooper. Poor guy.

I'm not paranoid or a worrier by nature but I'm kinda lookin' over my shoulder now...

Bad things come in threes so I'm gonna let you borrow my massive uncontrollable allergy problems which leave me absolutely unable to function....that makes three!

Yesterday, no lie, I couldn't be at home cuz of the wind and pollen, so I went to our town square and within 10 minutes I felt better...and then passed out on a park bench just like an old bum, waking up with three minutes to spare to pick up Hannah...

If you are looking for me today, I'll be slumming in the mostly concrete park in town, perhaps I'll even peruse the trash cans while i'm at it for a snack!

Hope Zack is feeling ok, you gimpS!

Poor kid!! Hope he's feeling better!!

We're still in the land of the broken collar bone - so V can attest to how "unfun" it is.

Lime they are following your good example. Now, to test this theory, dress in a tutu and wear a crown for a day. See what the boys do.
