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

Congratulations on all your milestones! Sorry to hear about your daughter's injury- let's hope her injuries heal quickly. Too funny about her car priorities- iPod jack and sunroof- lol!

Wow, sorry to hear bout her torn ligament, hope it heals up without issue.

Good choice with the Corolla. They're so reliable, it will probably still be running on your actual 100th birthday.

Congrats and have fun!

I hate buying cars. They talk to me like I'm an idiot, then we get into financing and they look at me like I'm speaking an another language when I catch them in their lies. Grrrr!

Oh! And thanks for your comment about removing the oil tank. We did get it out with a hand saw, now we're trying to find someone to take the oil... Thanks again!

Hope she gets better without any other issues.

A very happy birthday to you and congrats on the 100th post.

Crystal Pistol said...

Happy birthday! I hope it was a great one.

I'm glad your daughter wasn't hurt in that accident.

I know about lead feet and using them. I drive WAY too fast. I get pulled over a lot. Luckily, I usually escape with only a warning... I gotz to slow down!

KaLynn ("MiMi") said...

Glad all is well! Well mostly well. I hope girlie does not have to have surgery either! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Hopefully you won't even use half those candles! Hope it is/was a great day for you!

Pearl said...

Hey, Happy Birthday!

Glad the girl is feeling better -- and that her car has an iPod jack. :-)


Chrissy said...

Happy Belated Birthday! And Happy 100th post. Geez, I've been missing everthing.

I'm driving my father's 10 year old Corolla and it's really a great little car. I don't understand why car salesman need to be such shi#s. Glad you beat them up (figuratively, right?) for her.

Just found you through Pearl. We just had a crash in our family too ... had finally bit-the-bullet and purchased a new-ish car. First time ever to have a car payment. We owned it for 11 days when it was totalled. Anyway - do you have a Carmax near by? Best place ever to shop for cars!

I missed your birthday but I promise not to be late for your 101st!!
