Overheard At The Resturant

Man and his son sitting in a booth at a local greasy spoon.

Man watches a lady walking by.

Man says, "Son, now theres a woman that can pull a plow".

I'm pretty sure she would be flattered, don't you?

Simply Updates

My last post was my 100th post. Amazing to me that I reached that milepost. It was going to be Grand. But instead The Oldest had the accident and everything else took a back seat. Who am I fooling. It was going to be like all the others.

I want to thank all you guys for your kind and supportive words. Is nice to have those when things get a bit stressed.

I also want to give a bit of an update.

The wreck was on a Tuesday as she was heading to work. She is a surgical technician in the womens unit mostly assisting in C-Sections. She missed that nites shift and took off Wednesday and Thursday as well due to soreness. She spent the weekend with us before returning to her apartment Sunday nite. She went to work Monday only to struggle with her left hand trying to retract and other things. After the same issues Tuesday and having the Dr. get ticked at her she went to the Orthopedist.

Turns out she had torn the ligament that closes the thumb. She is now in a cast for 4 weeks and is out of work. After the 4 weeks they will determine if she needs surgery. Hopefully not because she is about to burn through her PTO and I think she is tired of other folks having to cut her food up.

Her spirit has picked up a bit as she bought a new car last Thursday. She found a red 2009 Corolla with 15000 miles on it. It had an IPod jack and a sliding sunroof. Seems that was the important stuff. Oh it had 4 wheels too! I am happy because it doesnt have quite the peppy engine the other had. The girl has a lead foot and knows how to use it.

It was hard to get her to look at cars. She liked her old car and it was almost paid off. She also went to a couple dealerships where she felt attacked. She called me in tears so I paid them a visit. Needless to say we didnt buy the car there.

Again, Thank you guys for the support and thanks for stopping in.

OH! BTW today is my Birthday. And NO! We cant use the 100 candle cake for that too. LOL
