It has been a trying few weeks. My husband has been taking an Emergency Response Class and attending the Citizen’s Academy from the local police department 3 nights a week. He and I have been attending a Strengthening Marriage class one night a week, my husband has been working his full-time job, plus a part time job, I have been home with the kids, babysitting, sewing, and making Halloween costumes. On top of the every-day, scheduled business I’ve had some frustrating accidents:
-I dropped a full bottle of sun screen on my toe… I thought it was broken but ended up with a small blood blister instead *Whew*
-I cut off part of my fingernail and nail-bed while shaving
-I tripped over my oldest son while holding my infant son (while volunteering to watch children for people who attend choir at church) and skinned my knee and smashing my toes. (Infant son and older son unscathed)
-My son dropped a pad-lock on my other foot, causing much pain and bruising
-I cut my knee while shaving
-I singed the hair off my right hand and some of my (head) hair while lighting the grill to make my husband a special birthday dinner
-I burned my hand on the oven rack while getting muffins out of the oven.
-My stomach has been really upset on and off for the past few days.
-And I have had about 20 headaches
I am cringing to see what happens next… or maybe I’ve already hit my low and am on the up-swing? My husband’s emergency response class is finally over, and the marriage class ends this week. I hope this means less accidents, more time for the boys to have with dad, and me with my husband. Hoping so. Sigh
